I didn't feel like shelling out the money for a large ugly pewter model from GW. So I converted a cheaper terminator to take it's place. I used the Black Reach terminator that came with the Black Reach White Dwarf:
With some slicing and dicing:
After some Green Stuff mutations:
RAWR!!! The front:
Most of the bits used for the conversion were from my friend's bits box as I don't have my own bits yet. Obviously the metal muzzle of the lascannon could be a plastic bit, but there weren't any around. As of now, this 'Aspiring Obliterator' is still a little smaller than it's standard pewter brethren.
I'm still debating with myself as to how I'm going to fill the left shoulder and make him a little taller... I do know that I will add more to the back side of the model because that spot is just boring.
Constructive criticism is always nice!
I will keep you guys updated on this as I continue with it.
I'd change the head personally but for the back you could possibly attempt to sculpt screaming faces into it. To make the model a bit taller just cut out some plasticard in the shape of the feet and glue it to them, it works lovely for making warbosses taller so should be fine here.
Removing the head would be quite difficult as it is the one from Black Reach. Thus it's hollow and the face is attached to the front torso.
Thanks for the comments tho!
I'm thinking about extending the 'upper armour' to be flush with the dome just over the head, any thoughts on that? or would that make him seem too boxy?
That's what I'm trying to do, add bulk with the model that I have. If it were a regular termie, then it'd be easier to add bulk... But it's not.
It's nice to see someone else try this.
In my signature you'll find the link to my own, similar, obliterator conversion.
EDIT: (Wohoo! Big one-oh-oh. )

that a really nice look, I should try that with black reach termies, or maybe the single terminator I got from the white dwarf, really good idea you just gave me I've been making my own obliterators almost from scratch for months now, but I don't know how much longer it would take as I'm massively slack.
Awesome job again dude, really well played and I agree with gauss, the faces are the main reason I'm never buying a GW obliterator, they look stupid.
I think you should do similar to what mechatius withe the massive gun on the top, it doesn't necesarily have to be a gun it could just be a lump or something but either way it adds heaps of bulk.......
and also the head seems a bit "still loyal to the emporer" so maybe you could stick on some horns or even better dig out a chunk of the head and sculpt some mutated, twissted thingy.
