So I had this crazy idea that I could save money by making meganobs out of terminator armour. I had a play on photoshop and had some pretty good looking results. My question to you all is this:
Which of the three terminator packs (Standard, Assault and Chaos) would make the best looking "looted meganobs?"
I personally lean more towards loyalist marines as I can use straight power fists, lightning claws and thunder hammers as Klaws, but on the other hand the trophy racks are nice on the chaos boys.
I plan on using some metal nob parts, heads in place of the marine ones, swap out some arms for the muscular nob ones. Also a bunch of spare armour plates from the boys sprues to bulk it up some.
What do you think?
(if there is interest I will post my photoshop work for the more visually inclined.)
I would go for the chaos ones as they look more "ORKY" and have some quite good gun based equipment and you could just take metal nob arms and add shoulder pads for the close combat weapons
Or you could go for assualt terminators. the lightining claws would look really awesome, not to mention the thundar hammers , much more orky than a powerfist. the only problem is they won't come with storm bolters. but you could cannibilize regualar shootas to suffice. whatever floats your boat. Chaos ones look more orky right out of the box with all the spikes, but with your bitz box it sounds like orkification won't be a problem. or you could mix and match

I personally don't think it would work so well, being of a much weirder body shape the ork would be crushed in terminator armour I believe, and I doubt he could figure it out. even if its as simply as putting it on and pressing a button.
But I dunno, show us the picture maybe and I'll be swayed? Pictures always help and you'll get a better response.
So here are some quick concepts for the 3 different options. Obviously there will be more armour plating added and other gubbins but this is just a rough idea of some finished products in my colour scheme.
Duane: If you think about it terminator armour is hunched like an ork is normally so if anything it would look like it fit orks better!

I would personally go for the marine termies over the chaos. Not only are the chaos ones made of medal, but they also seem smaller. If you can get your nobz to look like these photo shopped pics they will look really good either way. Hope it works out well for ya, make sure to post pics of the finished product.
What is dis signature nonsence?! dem stupid human zoggers are always trien to confuze us.
Actually there are some new plastic chaos terminators, which I used in the image. They are bigger than normal termies now too.
Thanks for the input everybody, keep it coming!
Out of the concept pics, I'd say the chaos termies are an easy best - their extra bulk and spiky bitz are fare more befitting ork nobz than the clean cut armor of the imperium.
Two's to kill. Ahh, sweet sweet music.
Well I'm glad everyone likes the chaos ones because I bought some this afternoon. I can't work on them for a week or so but will post them all up when they are done. Thanks to everyone who had their say, you all helped me decide. (And the chaos ones I got were cheap, which also helped.)
