Spoiler:


There was a contest on a Facebook group to build a mek themed after a renowned Ork converted. I decided to enter and do a Big Mek in Mega Armor. I have no idea if this is a good combo or what the rules are, I just wanted to make a cool model.

I started with a Juggernaut Armor from Kromlech. I only wound up using one saw.

Spoiler:


I knew I wanted servo arms, so I made some out of styrene. I was also going to have a Waz bosspole but I wound up abandoning that - it was getting too cluttered.

Spoiler:


The servo arms in progress. I used a prod from the Grot kit and a drill bit from some third party - pretty sure Kromlech or MaxMini.

Spoiler:






I built up the backpack a bit to support the arms.

Spoiler:


I added some rivets from the Tychy Train Group.

Spoiler:


I made a rivet gun from a stikkbomb launcha, a shoota, and used the hand from a Black Orc.

Spoiler:


Not 100% sure where I got the tesla coils from - maybe the Morkanaut kit? Anyway, I made all the hoses with the Green Stuff Industries Tentacle Maker.

Spoiler:





Then I painted him up.

All around:

Spoiler:


Here's a size reference with some Boyz. It's a pretty big kit.

Spoiler:


Here's a size reference with some Mega Amour Nobz.

I also scratchbuilt the MANz, which was way more impressive before GWS released them in plastic

Spoiler:


Here's a size reference with some a Killa Kan and a Deff Dread.

Spoiler:


Me being me, I got this done long, long after the contest had ended. I didn't do the greatest paint job on him - unfortunately much like the Meka Dread, there is so much clutter on the kit I think it's hard to photograph well, so I didn't want to spend hours painting detail that would be hard to see. I just did a decent job and called it a day. As with every model kit I ever do, I had a lot more fun on the conversion and building than the painting.

Love it. Ever thought of casting up the Mek stuff as a conversion kit?

Nah, too much effort for no profit even if I owned the rights and I don't - the only thing I 100% built myself was the robot gripper arm. The grot prod and tesla coils are Games Workshop and the drill bit is (I think) Kromlech.
