Looks good! I especially like the mini-gun with feed. The boots are pretty nice, too.
Can we get a shot of the back? I'd like to see what you're doing for engines.
Keep it up, I'll be watching.
little sparse. think it could use some gears etc. I want one of my next ones to have a stormboy-grot taped/tied to the MAN in an attempt to get airborn... and another with a hamster wheel power source, with a grot or squig running inside of course!!
Thanks for the input! have heard good things about boots on dakkadakka. Have gotten some mixed reviews about size of minigun though. Eh. looks proppa to me!!!

yeah, the minigun is a tad small, but it'd be a pain to make it any bigger now.
this is looking pretty sweet, curvy boots are better than blocky ones any day.
for the engine, you could use the belt from either the trukk engine or the warbikers to fill the space if you can't find any gears.
Haha a tad small! Everybody seems to be telling me it's TOO big for a normal man... Better fitting of a warboss?
I hadn't thought of trukk bits !!! I have to look now lol. Was honna steal some model car bits from my pops!
Thanks for feedback!!

So far it looks quite good, except for the shield, I think that it just looks a bit out of place, maybe on a tank or something, but just not there.
Also what colours where you gonna stick on him? It always interests me...
I origingally saw these shields and based mine on them. I like the storm shields terminators get, and when i run the mad dok... having a shield sounds like a good reason for a 5+ invlun... ha =]
I'm hoping to have the next one have his shield above his head screaming in victory or something (minigun dumping upwards of course)
ALso going to have to get me some maxmini or spellcrow freebooter heads for a few.
Do you think the shield needs more detail? More plates? Maybe add another layer of teef?
Could give it lil spikey bits all the way around like a sun-face?
My army is a speed freak theme, only few things I have painted up thus far :
Will probably do something similiar to that mega nob there. I plan on giving flame jobs like the jet has to the ones who have kombi-flamers and checkered patters on the other.
If any get pirate heads, will do their pants with pirate stripes I think.
Have considered some blue war paint across the face/on the armor/possibly on shield?

They look awesome!
And about the shield, personally I thin that it's fine as like a big glyph or something, but personally I think that it just shouldn't be there, or at least, not on that arm, I feel that it overbalances the model.
Yeah he is lopsided a bit. I was more or less going for a TH/SS termi but... with proppa dakka and of course a klaw not some stupid umie mekboy-wanna-be ammerin' thang

Updated photo of AOBR mega nob with some lame hat that needs fixing, a nob with PK / big shoota + lame hat (I got my spellcrow heads/hats in day after i made these.. ).. I was rushing to get this guy started/finished by 10-18 for Nerdfest's golden bathtub squad leader competition.. haha =]
without further bs!
family of fella's with hats currently
Nob with PK and Big shoota (my competition entry)
I still have a stretch to go, painting cables, more highlights, and washing, checkers, flames? skull and cross bones? considering making a flame burst at end of barrel of gun and giving him a warm glow from the OSL?
Thanks all for the C & C!!!!
