I was wondering if anyone here could help me out. I play fantasy orcs and for purposes of conversions i bought a few nobs off ebay a few minutes ago. They come without arms and i was wondering if the size of a nob arm is similar to that of a shoota boy (or an orc warrior from fantasy). I dont have an opportunity to actually check it out myself and compare the sizes, so if any of you would be kind enough to enlighten me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!!
I don't think that they would fit perfectly since nobs generally are the big 'uns. You could always try and att some green stuff to bulk it up but you choose
They're significantly bigger. you can use the Orc Boy arms but it'll probably look kinda strange. If I were you I'd cut off the guns and/or mechanical chain axes and apply some other weapons (shields n such). They'd make good bosses (think they're still called bosses?) to lead your units. They're also a bit closer in size to Black Orcs, so they could be spliced in conversions or you could armor the nobz up with plates and helmets and call them Black Orcs on the battlefield. They'd also be good big uns if you had enough for a unit.
Oops, didn't see that they didn't have arms... yeah they're going to look weird with shrimpy Orc Boy arms... I'd buy some with arms that match, unless you don't mind some goofy-lookin big uns lol.
Ok cool, thank guys
Yeah Im planning on using them as big uns. I bought them off ebay without arms thiking i could use orc arms, until i realized nobs are, well, nobs for a reason lol
don't you get a lot of extra arms in a black ork box? so you should be able to use arms from there of you find some nob arms from 40k players
Good point, VB- the Ork Nobz box contains a bunch of extra nob arms that go unused. If you find a Space Ork player around they may give you some unused ones or perhaps sell them to you for a very low price.
yupp, i got a few sets from the black orcs. Hopefully they will fit the nob bodies that im currently waitng for. Thanks for the hints
