Yo!

 

Since the 8th ed favours psykers, I decided my Waaagh needed some weirdboys. I don´t have acess to any hobby store to get one easy and fast (closest one is 2 continents away), so I picked up a spare boy and sacavenged my bits box (can you guess where are all from?).

After a quick visit to the painboy to make him bigger

Added some bits together, stretchned the legs with plasticard ahd got this mock up

The legs got some greenstuff for blending, and I also sculpted some parts of the torso, to make him bigger.

After this on to painting. Actually, it´s already done, but I´ll take decent pictures with the camera tomorrow and post it in the trophy rack.

While i was building him, I got some more ideias, that will be put to fruition for the next weirdboys, because I want at least 3 of them  :yes 

 

C&C Always welcome :cheers:

Always a pleasure to see GW getting a decent hack job, fink me DeffSkullz might be needing a weirdboy or two soon and looting other peoples' ideas is so much less mither than having to come up with them myself :biggrin

That looks awesome! :thumbs

 

I like how you've done that glowing effect on the skull matching the weirdboy's own glowing eye. I've been planning something similar for my own weirdboy conversion; hopefully I can pull off something that looks as good as that!

 

I like the chain on the arm too. It reminds me of how the 2nd edition weirdboyz had minderz to try to keep them under control. I was thinking about doing something similar but couldn't find a way to make it look right. It looks great on your model though! Maybe I'll try again.
