Needed a little break from the Stompa so I sat down and peered through the codex wondering what to add to my force. Combined with some browsing I landed on two things. A warboss and nobs, all in mega armour! Now I know that many feel that meganobs are a waste but I like their look, they fit into my theme and there`s few of them for a buckeload of points (in an orky world).
So my aim is making 9 meganobs, where 3 of them will have kombi skorcha and a warboss in mega armour. The best part about this is that I have all the parts I need, a box full of leftovers from my plasticard and bitz & pieces as well as the ork bodies I need.
Here`s what I`ve got so far, loosely based on Drabber`s template on making mega-armour:
Added a standard mega.nob for scale reference. Mine is a bit taller, but a lot of his size comes from the pose. I want to do something more to this units bases as well so the theme will be "mowing through a tactical squad".
I`d like to remind that this is just the main build, rivets, cables, hydraulics/pistons and more will come
For the next one I`ll do a bit more of a stage-by-stage posts. I just didn`t bother with this one since I needed to see that it would work.
