So i've been kicking around the conversion thing again, and now i'm debating making some mega armored nobz and a warboss out of the terminator box. I'm thinking the instead of storm bolters its easy enough to model shootas instead. However, for the power klaws i'm thinking the power fists with some spikeyness. Definitely an ork head and an iron gob. What do you think? you think this is orky enough, or you think it needs more?

Well as far as the idea goes, I think it might work. You'd have to make the terminator suit look extra orky by throwing on some spikes and such, but i think it's doable. I'd like to see the finished result, assuming you go forth with the idea.

I dunno....Termie armour looks very refined and clean, whereas mega armour looks like a huge amount of metal stuck around the Ork. It might look cool, but It wouldn't look very Orks, unless you did some serious magic to it.

if you add lots of "built in" bionik arms and plates, spikes it should look cool. i think if you have the thinner parts as orks arms...like cutting the arm and having the shoulder plate and fist attached to an ork elbow. any added mechanics...

i'm looking to get the terminators next week (have to wait for paychecks) here's what i'm thinking
Body: Terminator Armor: I figure a little plasti card to square the legs up a bit
Arm: Remove Storm bolter, add 2 shootas side by side and trimmed down a bit. For a Shoota/rokkit i'm using the cyclone and adding 2 big missiles. For the shoota scorcha i figure take the burna part off the heavy flamer and mount it under the shootas.
Arm: I have 2 left over power klaws, for the other 3 i'm thinking of adding spikes to the power fists/chainfist
Head: Ork of course, figure i have to add a gob to make it look more orky.

army theme is speed freaks that looted a black templar army anyway so i think it kinda fits.

I was thinking of doing something similar too, but the human arms are much smaller than the meat fisted ork conterparts, plus their heads are much bigger, it might look a bit squashed in there for an Ork nob. Still more power to you if you pull it off, i'd love to see any pics you take.

Arms are smaller that's why i'm hoping to utilize power klaws if possible for everyone. in addition i'm planning on using ork arms for the shootas where possible and using plasticard to create armor around them. still have to get the finances for the terminators-hopeful for this weekend.
