WIP: Ghetorix Re-pose

Ghetorix is a warpwolf character warbeast (for laypersons, he’s a big, special werewolf with an axe) for my Circle Orboros army. Naturally, I didn’t like the way his wrists looked in his default pose. I say “naturally” because I tend to find flaws in every model that I am then motivated to convert to my own liking.

So, here’s Privateer Press’s photo of Ghetorix:

Notice his left wrist? I don't like its angle. It is goofy.

So… I had to change him. And that meant cutting his axe in half, then sculpting new handle wrapping in Green Stuff, and then pinning him together… and then taking terrible pictures of him because his axe is heavy and he’s not based yet.

Oh man, what a crappy photo of my work. So crappy. Bad angle. He's leaning. What was I thinking taking this photo? What I am thinking posting it here?
Ghetorix 2
This is a much better picture, which shows how badass this axe is, and it shows that my sculpting work isn't too bad.

Next, Ghetorix needs a FABULOUS base, because all special character werewolf types need a FABULOUS base. I just have no idea what that base should be…

Coming soon… some posts with painting, and some things not about minis, but about some other aspect of gaming… hopefully.

WIP: Ork Cyboar Nobz

Just a few pictures of a work-in-progress – I’m doing a unit of Ork Cyboar Nobz – that is, Nobz on cyborg boars which, of course, count as Nob Bikers, whose cheesy rules are still mighty, even with the changes to wound allocation in 6th Edition. Naturally, one of them will be a Painboy, but he’s not ready yet. Here are pictures of the other four:

Cyboar 1
These pictures are not very good, but these guys are hard to get good pictures of.
Cyboar 2
Yeah, another bad picture.
Cyboar 3
This one looks better!
Cyboar 4
I started to put some plasticard armor on this guy. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.

So, those are works-in-progress! Obviously, they are not quite cyborgs yet, but I am going to slap orky bitz on them, including exhaust pipes, shootas, good ol’ scrappy armor, and probably some wires and hoses.

The fifth cyboar rider will be a Painboy (an ork “medic” for the uninitiated), so he’ll need some more customization – mostly a mask, a syringe, and possible a buzzsaw for an arm.

Your comments are appreciated! Well, possibly…
