A little fun project, converting the new Bloodbowl orcs to 40K orks. So far half of them about built, just hand and head swaps really with some GS for gaps.

Nob from the black orc:

These guys are bigger than regular boyz, and on 30mm bases:

These guys were the easy part, next I'll try to do the same thing again with different results. As there are two identical sprues in the box, I'll try to make the boyz look slightly different with some re-positioning of arms and legs, and also to give every boy a different helmeted head to increase diversity.

 

As I've got some free time this week, you might see some results actually quite soon. :biggrin

... just in time for GW to take the ard boyz off us.

Really? They're gone? But I liked them!!

 

Well, I guess that was to be expected, 'cause they have no offichul models. GW used to sell an 'ard boyz upgrade, back when they still had a bitz shop. I remember there was metal helmeted heads, armored torsoes and shoulder guards, and maybe iron gobs?

 

Well, I makes what I wants, anyway. :lol

GS werk is not done yet, so there are some nasty surgical scars and missing bits, around the necks especially. Also the bases need some detailing.

 

This was the first time I thougth to do an ork face transplant ( results on the second and the last boy) with a helmeted head. I found the best way to do this is to first make a vertical cut all thru the middle of the face, from the rim of the helmet to the jaw. Then you make two more cuts on both sides between the side bitz of the helmet and the face. Then you just cut the exess bits off with a hobby-knife, leaving just the helmet. File might be usefull, too. Last you cut the new face so it fits inside the helmet, and glue it in place.

 

I don't quite know what to do with the other black orc, maybe make him an alternative nob with different gear? He'd need really major work to wield a heavy/special weapon.

Great looking Ardboyz!!




The Nobz pose is a little weird though, but it is a tough model to repose.

These are great. Such a simple idea to make the boys look so much more dynamic. :)
