So Lorax looking for a new clan? Its true, I may have KoS in my future.
So, I ended up trading the Yamato that I had to Morfang. That said I am making a KoS biker army, and need a new boss. Who better than Wazzdakka? So I picked up a few model motorcycle kits and got to work. The kits were large scale, but I ended up bashing them anyways.
Here is where it stands right now. Still need: (1) more exhausts (2) cowl for the front gun (3) skins for the front forks (4) trophy flaming skulls (5) rider (6) back fender (7) lots o gear.
So he has a long way to go. This was my first cut at him though, and I am liking how he is coming so far.

If anything the bike is way too big, but that means he can smash over more humies. I am going to aim to keep the boss the standard size of a boss, which poses a bit of a problem due to the size of the bike, but we will see how it goes.
:cheers

Looks quite nice at the moment, but the exhaust pipes need beefing up, and maybe make the wheels straight.

the basic shape looks good, but it still needs some plasti-card and rivets. also, I would beef up the front guns or add on to them.

The exhaust...can you make it bigger? Looks too weedy for the size of the engine.

Thanks for all the feedback. I did a little more work on it today, and there is still quite a ways for it to go.

i don't like the front fork

I agree, it was a little more structural than anything, skinned some of it today.

The exhaust...can you make it bigger? Looks too weedy for the size of the engine.

After taking a second look at it, I decided to hack off the exhaust tips, and leave the wider section visible.

I also started work on the rider. There is an ugly basic form for his lower half. Then I chopped a warboss (metal git) in half. At any rate, decided to use Ghazzies claw with the chainsaw upgrade from the picture in the codex. Here is how that is looking so far.

I love the deffrolla wheelz *loot* but they look too plain on the side for a bike, especially for their size compared to regular bikez. Maybe something decorative to take the place of wheels & spokes, like rivited-platez? Even square platez would add some visual interest.

Well I did some Green Stuffing...lots of greenstuffing. Added lots more visual interest, as well as 2 grots. All that is really left now is some rivets. Took quite a time to get the rider on, I forgot that when bulking up the dolly, the overall leg stretch decreased, so I had to cut it and refit it. Overall I am really pleased, the legs are a bit large for the torso, but I think it still looks alright.

It's a bit difficult to make out all the details for me, but it is definitely looking great! I dare say it is the best Wazzdakka i have seen so far! :thumbs But i think you overdid the klaw... it could be a bit smaller, after all Wazzdakka is rather weedy compared to a normal boss (S4 if i remember correctly)

Very nice, he looks great on there and once you hit it with primer he'll all come together. He is going to be a fun one to paint, even if I'm lurking I am always checking by and its always fun to watch your builds, My only nitpicks; in one of the pics it looks like there is a gap in the GS on his eyebrow, and he feels like he is leaning a bit too far. The length of the legs doesn't bother me, infact he is sitting well on there, Perhaps once you mount him to the base it won't seem as much so. -brad isdrab

I take it from the look of the mini that he is supposed to be moving, and that would mean the flames on the skull would be going backwards. I also think the flames need beffing up, I know there are some tuts in the 101 secshun, but other than that it looks OK.

Like: GS work on the Mad Mek hisself, Chain Klaw, Guns Dislike: Wheels, Chrome, Streeeeeetch look of the bike. Maybe a coat of primer and some paint will make it look better but now it looks just a little too slapped together.
No, dis is no yer fing. I stole it fair and square. 'Sides, it's painted bloo now.

:o Orks use whatever they can - Wazdakka probably changes his bike after about every battle, so he may want a deffskull-y, looted, ramshackle look ;)

I like it, wazdakka is good, so is the bike - not keen ever so slightly on the bottom half of the bike though.

LoL Thank you for the feedback gents. @Drabber I will revisit his arm and make sure it doesn't look like a glob. Part of what it is are 2 leather straps and a plate. May be my bad picture quality. Thanks for watching my build! @Cragum. I completely scratch built the legs, the torso is metal warboss, the head a metal warboss and the top knot actually comes from a Rackham dwarf of mid noir miniature. @Alienerd perhaps I will add some more motion to the overall flames, coming out of the back. A lot of the mini is based on the picture from the codex. @4ton LOL. I am not one for sig-ing quotes but that is a keeper. Cheers! Doing some rivets throughout the day today. Then I am going to hit it with some black primer. I will post some pictures after it is primed (which incidentily will handle any of the chrome as well). Some of the details that did not turn out too well from the pictures are 2 bedrools on the back end of the bike held down by 2 straps. A shotgun inside a gun holster to the side of bedrolls. A jerrycan held down by a chain and masterlock. And the fuel drum with a smoking/burning grot standing ontop of it. Thanks again -Lorax
