Every MegaNob needs a shiny combi-skorcha...






Nobz are strong, but that is one huge weapon. Need some struts and hydraulics to help him handle it, one handed.

I've been pretty productive today, and managed to not only finish off the MegaNob, but also did another with twin Kill-Saws.
These are the last 5 MANZ I need for my BullyBoyz formation, and I'd like to have a Twin-Killsaw Nob in each squad for extra devastating CC shenanigans.
When i've finished this lot, I'm going Titan Hunting.

Finished off the last of my Nobs to MANZ conversions for my bully Boyz formation. Hopefully I'll get a link of paint on these last 5 by the end of the year ready for a new year group shot!

I like these but not sure about the guy with both arms up. They look great so I can't wait to see the group shot.

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

Thanks, you know I never wondered about funky ork stank before, but now?
I wasn't too sure about his pose myself, but I wanted a more dynamic posture from these conversions rather than the lumbering metal gorilla pose of the traditional models.
He's actually one of my favourites now, I can almost hear him roaring as he smashes his killsaws down on some luckless rhino, and with the other boss poles and skull racks he adds a little height variation to the unit. I'm probably going to get started on painting these on the run up to Christmas and hope to have them finished Christmas Eve.

Well, it's been entertaining, but I finally finished off the last of my MANZ earlier this evening. To celebrate, I used a little blood splatter using the blood for the blood god paint. I think it can be quite effective.



So, as this is the last of my Bully Boyz, here they are as a group shot. It includes the 10 converted Nobs, 2 original metal MANZ and a plastic Mega armoured big mek set, which features a KFF and teleport blasta. Obviously they will have to act as normal MANZ in the formation when it hits the table, but overall I'm quite pleased with how they turned out and I cant wait to play them.
Hope you like them, they saved me a fortune.
