    I think you could convert a warhammer ogre fairly easily, you'd just have to use an ork warboss or nob head.

    Adrian Wood of GW made his warboss from an Imperial Guard Ogeryn model, just did a head swap, I think... he might have added some kind of a choppa...

    You might also try using a Warhammer Ork boss or special character and add a few bits to make it look more futuristic...

    You can always base your conversion on a fantasy Orc boss... or just rebuild the normal Warboss model a bit, like I did.

    Grimgor from the fantasy realm is an excellent piece for a warboss. His army could easily represent 'ard armor, and Borgut would make a nice Nob.... i will be using grimgor as my slaver for my and Night gobo's for grots

    My brother plays orks and he's got a sweet warboss he converted from the mega armored Gazkull special character. He combined the oversized gazkull model with parts from a mega-armored nob model, and added a helmet that looks like a horned bull-skull (???). Anyways, it's hilarious and terrifying in combat. Sorry I don't have a pic
