Hi,

it´s been quite a while since my last post here, but I´ve been quite busy with some other orky projects and real life. Anyway here is my newest project: plastic Meganobz made from the Black reach box! :D

Each Meganob was built from a complete Terminator and the body of a Plastic Nob from the Box. Heads are plastic Black Orc heads.
I wanted to have plastic Meganobz for quite a while now, but I wanted an easy conversion not just rebuilding the tin version from plastic card. So one night I figured out how to properly combine both a Termi and a Nob. Basically these Meganobz are the Orky rebuilt of a Terminator armour and I aimed for simelar poses and mimicked some of the weapons too like the Assault cannon.

At the moment I have built a total of 5 Meganobz, more to follow. At the bottom you´ll find several WIP shots showing what parts to use, where to cut. The basic build is rather simple as you can see below :)
I´ll paint them quite soon in Deffskull colours, stay tuned :D Hope you like them! :)

Ok here they are, group shot:

Details of the lot:

Scale shot with normal boy and an Ogre bull Nob conversion (yes my Nobz are biiiig ;) ):
scale.jpg


WIP Shots in chronological order with a small How to :)
Just cut the Terminator body above the hip in half and then cut vertically through the Termi hip giving you two seperate legs. Then add a spacer made from plastic card and add the Nobz original shoes below the Termi shoes. Cut a Nob body through the hip,remove the arms/pegs and file off the rear of the body slightly. Use the Terminator rear armour file it a bit and glue it into place. Remove all beakie insignia on the Termi armour and cut the arms as shown in the pic. Add parts from the Biotoxin plant set for details and bulk out the suit. Slightly shave off the Nob chest and then glue the Terminator chest there into place. The side chest armour plates can be plastic card or from the 'umie tank track covers or what I also used doors from a Tempest Landspeeder. Once you are done with the body add the arms and the weapons you like and voila done!

This is the best Terminator to MegaNob (or 'Ard Boy) conversion that I have seen yet. Really nice job. You almost can't recognize the Terminator parts from the front of the mini. The legs feel a tiny bit long to me, but other than that, this is a really gerat way to get some Meganobz. Very impressive work, and thank you for the WIP pics!

This is very good. I also think the legs are a little long and some of the shoes don't fit just right but these are very good. Some of the best terminator to big orks I have seen. Definately going to have to do a few of these myself.

Yeah, the Venerable Morfangdakka. It has a certain feel to it.

Those are excellent! I may have to loot them, although i would shorten their legs a bit. Now I'll start waiting for them to get some paint.

:eek Yeah...those'll work :thumbs :dakka :choppa what else does a proppa ork need. They almost look like spikey boyz theres so much craziness going on. They are quite impressive though. I think you might be able to pull of the legs as is if you were to give the feet some dags & rivets rather then those just being plain.

Really good take on the terminator armored orks. Part of me wished they would have made a new Nazdreg in terminator armor as a way of getting a cool ork in termie armor for meganobz. If I could get a Nazdreg claw bit, I might loot up this idea!

Wow, thanks alot for the great feedback!! :cheers :) Concerning the legs, yeah I know they are a tiny bit too long that´s why I tried bulking them out a little to distract from that. Maybe I´ll shorten them slightly for the next run of Meganobz :D I got quite carried away while making these and adding bitz layer after bitz layer onto them :D Once you get the hang of it, it´s actually a very fast way to build a Meganob! There are also some details I forgot to point out. Since Meganobz got Stikkbommz I gave two of the Nobz wrist mounted Stikkbomb Launchers (the ones with the Scorcha Combiweapons). The Mekboyz were inspired by the Auxilary Grenade Launchers from the Terminator Captain in his powerfist and made their own version of it which fires complete stikkbommz (including the stick) with a spring mechanism :D One Meganob also has a "Predator" movie like Stikkbomb Launcha on his shoulder. I am also thinking of making a new Warboss for my army in the same way using the BR Warboss, however he needs to be a bit bigger. Well looks like I need to buy a new BR box for more Meganobz.... For the colour sceme I will aim for that "Braveheart" movie look i.e. Blue/white painted helmets and shoulders (because they are Deffskulls), the rest of the Nob will be black and boltgunmetal. Thats the idea at least :D Looking forward to see my Meganobz idea being looted :D Go for it! :cheers

Awesome build! I'll definitely have to loot these, just have to go buy another AoBR set. . . and like thats a bad thing. :lol Now to go rummage through my bitz boxes and find all the parts I want to include in my build.
I first produced my Slugga and then produced my Choppa , I said "Stand and deliver or Gork he may take ye"

These are very interesting. I have been working on some scratch-built meganobs patterned after the GW ones, but so far it has involved a lot of work and I don't look forward to making a whole bunch more. This method does indeed look very fast, and the results seem more in line with more recent ork models in how busy they are. They're like walking gubbinz-piles!

I think I might scratch me some :biggrin nice one, good and proppa. shade
Of course all my topics are pic heavy, you know why? because people don't want to open 12 hyperlinks a page! it stands to reason
