Zagstruk Nerdy styleee!

I have finally finished the first phase of the conversion, o he's posed and together and next I will tidy up the gs and joins etc so he flows better but I wanted to show you and see what you thought so far? I wanted him dynamic and similar to the original, looking powerful and determined with just a cool look to him! I like the pose of his arms in particular the Ork boy arm with the shooter looks like he's twisted holding it to his side as he splats some marines!

here he is so far







and against a assault marine for scale and if he looks right


Pretty happy with it so far and looking forward to finishing my Nobz tomorrow Oh and I bought a new house........

Looking good Damo! Love the turbine pack
One thing though - he looks rather unbalanced (especially in that last shot). Can't wait for further progress!!

Oh and great stuff with the new house just casually slipping that on in haha

AWESOME !!!! looks great and what a use for power claws love the pack oversized just perfect and the swinging arm I love at the end of the day you cant beat a basic Axe

The only thing I would add or do is some kind of harness for the pack attachment, also add some kind of toe claws to the sides of the "power feet claws" and angle them as if gripping the wall section.

Otherwise count me impressed

Kind of makes me want to get back to this guy :

How's a good way to make straps without them looking like squashed greenstuff?

Could use thin PC strips add GS detail that way you can have them lifted of the torso to the pack like its pulling tight.

I think the way most people use GS to make straps is they'll mix up an amount, let it set just a little bit, then cut it into strips that they'll put down how they want to go. But then you'd need to worry about things like buckles or buttons or whatnot for the connections, too.

I think you should make a bunch of different bases for him- one with a member of each races toughest infantry being "DYNAMIC ENTRY'd" on. Then you could swap him out depending on what race you're playing, for that psychological warfare angle.

Lots of pics today! got a full squad of NOBZ and a finished Zagstruk conversion to show you!

So, first I want to show you all my Nob......Z



This guy seems to be the head honcho, no idea why he just has always seemed like the leader


next is a guys I imagine to very surly and quiet, communicating in grunts accented by large gobbets of thick drool and an involuntary twitch.




Ah now this guys is my ode to the 80's action movies he just Ooozes Commando



This Nob is just angry all the time! something to do with a brain injury? he's a very short temper and is always trying to be first in the fray


lets see who's next! Ahhhh Spikey McHeadcracka has a very nasty dislike of Marines almost but not quite as bad as Dsteingass! you can even see on his base the shell he cracked off the severed head he's swinging around






and now my conversion for Zagstruk! all done, straps of greenstuff and some minor tidying and now he's ready for priming, slightly changed how he sits on the wall and added another claw to the front of each foot which while a small change makes it look much better!




and next to his Stormboy charge he looks suitably larger and suitably nastier!



I think I might start on my Boy squad next as well as a cool boy conversion I thought of today, have seen similar but I wanted my own take

Great squad love all the individual characters but some how still retaining a unit feel The extra claw toe was a great idea really adds more balance to it good call.

Cant wait to see what you come up with next .......... have you watched Blade Runner yet ?????????????

Not sure if I should continue with my idea? I kinda like it but not sure if it works properly. if not I'll just give him a different head and arm

NO! You must keep going!

He looks fabulous. The only thing bothering me is the rivets on the knuckles are a bit big, they kind of catch the eye. Not that we dont all stare at rivets!

The big question is are you going to break the rules you have put down and "colour" him up, and if so, bright Yellow??

Lol o.k o.k I'll finish him his claws are the leftover smaller power Klaw claws then I sanded them to angle into his arm better. you're right about the rivets too I just think I rushed putting it together but hoped it was alright. you can rest assured I want to paint him properly in lovely yellow spandex or similar

Okey Dokey dudes and dudettes I have some news I touched on earlier, Nerdwench and I have bought a new home together provided all goes well and no hiccups we get the keys on the 28th Feb so this also means I will have a new address and not really any time to hobby until we move in from now I shall keep you posted on progress and what's happening, but it is a damn lovely place with 3 bedrooms, sunroom, en-suite, walk in robe, large decking area, big lounge, double car garage with a fireplace in it! plus plenty of room for the 3 furry kids

So now of course I'll be in a better position (and I say this honestly) to have any Dakka travelers to our state come and camp in my spare room I'd love to entertain some of you and I'll be setting up my gaming table in the garage for games and the other spare room as my painting room!

I'll pop a link up when I know 100% that it's all gone through well and you can check it out!

Sounds lovely Nerdy, glad the Mrs. is finally making a responsible man out of you. Two questions... what is an "en-suite"... and what is a "walk in robe". I thought all robes were walk-in... otherwise you'd be all nekked after you bath & have nothing to wear on a lazy Sunday morning!

What happened to you man?

I thought you were some carefree, no life nerd like the rest of us. But now, you're getting married and you're buying a house and gak. What went wrong?


Did we not pay enough attention to you? Is that it? Not enough Dakka love?



Congrats though dude. Big steps.

En-suite is a small bathroom attached to the master bedroom. You sometimes get them with guest rooms as well, but that's less common. A walk in robe is wardrobe that is big enough to literally walk into, rather then just being a free standing unit.

So a walk-in robe.... would that be the same as a walk-in closet then?



Anyways, wow. Congrats dude! This has been a huge year for you already! Gonna get married, gonna get a new house.... Damn. Absolutely amazing!
Don't you worry about us- we'll be here, anxiously waiting for news on the NerdCastle!
