|Same Orks I've been working on for the last month - Dale pointed out this lot look like they are waving chequered flags at the end of a F1 race - Sigh - may need to do something to avoid that.|
So whats the blog title all about then. Its about this.
|The first new Nob to join the horde - a bits mash Black Reach and plastic Nob kit|
The Black Reach Boys are a bit samey - but now I have 40 of them that was always going to be an issue. Being a horde focused army I'm less bothered by that aspect of the minis and don't have the inclination to try too many changes to the base pose. The Nobs on the other hand did have me scratching my head as I already had a set of Black Reach Nobs (sans one that went wanderbouts at some stage) and another set of normal multipart plastic Nobs. I didn't fancy another set in the same pose seeing there would be feweer of those in the army. The multipart plastic set had come with plenty of spare gubbins, so I dug those out of my bits box and set to the new group of Black Reach nobs with my plastic cutters, scalpel and green stuff, with the aim of making them same - but different.
|The same base body, but two new arms and a head swap with one of the other Nobs|
|Again, the same body (minus a spike), another head swap (a variation on the painted one above - sans skull top) and a spare set of Shoota parts from the other Nob set|
|Another head and arm swap is enough to make this body look suitably different - though maybe I should swap that pistol out for something else - or a back banner - that's what it needs - a back banner|
|Once again, a spare Shoota get up and head swap (the same as the painted one directly above - though this one kept his top knot) is enough to visually change this models silhouette|
|Mr Grumpy here is the only body that doesn't have a double - I did swap out his arm though and he scored the Warbosses head as I didn't use that on my original|
|My collection of Nobs - ready to wage the Waagh!|
So thank you Mr James, I tip my hat to you good sir!
