I must give credit to having seen the conversion here first:


NOT MY WORK

Basically, it's a Genestealer's upper head (nostrils up) and an Ork's mouth, glued together.

Snikrot has an Ork's head with GS crest.

Still tinkering on my Big Mek, making him into a portfolio piece so he'll be a while. Might splash some paint on my first batch of human 'Grots'.

Gretchin are too useful to herd into a minefield, unlike humies they can be trained to do basic tasks.

That makes them even more impressive! Sounds like incredibly hard work. Can't wait to see more of this, especially if you do hybrid grotz.

So I've been neglecting my painting this week, in favour of sculpting. I couldn't help it, I picked up some Nobz, Crypt Ghouls and a Tau battlesuit, and had to tinker non-stop. I'm in the end stages of finishing a Warboss conversion, whom I'm naming Duffgul. Still got work to do on him - going to adjust the teef, sculpt hands, add cabling going to the jetpacks and a big fuel tank that makes them function as a Skorcha - but I just had to post this WIP on him:



Based on the ridiculously badass Decepticon, Bludgeon.

Some nice work in here, as always! Will you be lengthening the hilt beyond the wire sticking out? I feel it could do with some balancing out.

Yep, the hilt as it is is just a general WIP guide. I've actually snipped it off since gluing the sword in place, and will be cutting a wire to fit the intended length.

Dufgul looks very cool, nice sculpting on the arms.

Will he be getting a Bludgeonesque paint job?

Thanks! Definitely, in fact I've got 55 Nobz/Meganobz/Warbosses planned, all of whom will be a recognisable homage to a Mayhem, Wrecker, Dinobot, Predacon or Cassette.

Or Sharkticon.

lol, 55 planned out. Not been putting much thought into the project then

Very nice work! The orkstealers are very well done, and the painting is brilliant. I must say I especially like the Ork holding the havock launcher over his head....

I was thinking about how to do an ork hybrid's head yesterday by an odd co-incidence, but I think you've nailed it and we need look no further!

Some pics showing Duffgul's 'soft centre'. These details will be visible through missing panels and cracks in the Battlesuit!

While never a pretender fan, I totally see the bludgeon in there. Have you thought of breaking one of the tips off the head crest? He was always kinda beat up, and I assume with missing plates, yours will be too.

I'm retaining as much of the particularly 'Bludgeon' elements as I can, with weathering effects to recall Andrew Wildman's 'battle damage' depictions of him. Main purpose of the missing chest plate is to show off my torso sculpt

Duffgul / Bludgeon is ready to paint:


Battle damage notches all over the place. 'Duff' and 'Gul' glyphs mean 'beat' and 'skull'.


Jetpack refitted to work as a Skorcha; 'Uz' glyph means 'hot'.


Posterior hatch enables mid-battle ablutions without the need to remove armour. 'Bog' glyph means 'brown'. This one's for Doomthumbs!


Sculpted body detail will almost all be visible through armour having holes and being ill-fitting, including 'Grimfing' belt buckle. (Design also appears on shield, Bosspoles, and ring.)
