Yep, it's based on Snarler:



In the UK comic, he took it upon himself to act as an ideological enforcer and lead kill teams to assassinate turncoats. Between that and his drillsnout, seemed a perfect candidate to be a morale officer with counts-as-PF, Waaagh! banner, and bosspole (or in this case, Skabskull showing what happens to those who run away on his watch).

Though I am thinking about reducing the drillsnout on Grunta, it does look a bit overbalanced.

Stranglehold is looking a bit Super Deformed, but so far I'm happy with him. Weird colours, due to flash macro photography, but you get the idea:





No ears, on account of he's going to have a helmet on.

It's OK, s'pose you can bask in smug mode for a few minutes Good work, even if the flash does make him look like a super-detailed jelly-ork.

Super-deformed genestealer/transformer/ork hybrids? I'm guessing you could probably find a market for 'em

- He's going to be swinging a ball and chain, motion is forthcoming.

- He's a one-off, I'm going to do some more one-offs until I feel confident enough to have a crack at making castable models.

It's a cracking blog, been linked to in my sig for a few weeks. Thanks for linking it, though, always love seeing other hobbyists' takes on the theme

Mini update: gradually finishing Stranglehold, and building more Lootaz. Decided on a big Wreckin' Krew with 12-strong units riding Trukkbot, each with a particular race's loot as the Trukk and Deffgunz. There could end up being 99 Lootaz in all, budget willing!

Finished the sculpting on Stranglehold!









I'm getting to work on Octopunch, now, and then I'll get painting the three of them.



Plan is to make a diver's helmet, power trident, and a Scarab with a Tau flamer and Grot head transplant as an attack squig/skorcha. Base of the convo will be an old GD Black Orc.

Well done on the sculpting. Looks like a proper retro model.

Really interested to see how Octopunch turns out. The "attack squig" alone should be really interesting. I would think such an ambitious conversion is a fool's errand, but knowing the quality of your work, I will just begin waiting patiently for my mind to be blown.

Great sculpt

Stranglehold looks fantastic, and the cyber-squig sounds interesting.

Are there plans for a merged Ratchett/Megatron in the future?

Yes. Yes, there are.

I will be making a Thrakatron, and a Ratchit Painboy, and my Grotsnik will be the result of them testing Stracksuz's tellyport gun's potential for moving a unit across the battlefield and popping out of a shokka portal as a merged entity ten seconds earlier than they went in, and stopping their past selves from going into the tellyporta.

Yeah, I'm referencing Time Wars, The Price of Life, and The Bridge to Nowhere in one mini. With 40K physics already established as canon by Grisgutz kicking his own head in.

Also: Octopunch is coming along nicely. The iron boots and chainmail of the fantasy Orc nicely recall a steampunk diver armoured against biting marine life.



I seem to be comfortable sculpting a chain over a wire armature in one stage; might do a guide to this at some point.

I dig that helmet. Your chains on him are already looking improved from the chain on Stranglehold. How did you get such a nice roundness on that helmet anyway?

Chainsculpt blogging being photographed tonight. The helmet was a blob o' GS with an Ork head in it, rolled into a ball and smoothed with a needle file. Had to do a bit of filling and refiling here and there until it looked round enough.

After that, I excavated the sides and sculpted an ear in them. Then used a sausage of GS to make a ring over each hole, and pressed some aluminium mesh onto the rings. Used a fine marker to mark where the mesh needed to be cut to fit, snipped out a disc of mesh, and applied another sausage ring on top which was sculpted down into the shape needed. Then it was just sculpting rivets and hinges.

The faceplate and side holes will be sliced off so that I can paint the face and ears, then reattached with UHU contact glue (which won't bleach the paint as superglue would). Varnish should make the hold secure enough.

I'm going to paint his face with severe burns, then refix the faceplate. Also yet to acquire a Scarab with which to make his Burnagrot accomplice.

Have you thought about magnetising the face plate?

I did consider magnetising (or even hinging) the face plate, but the fitting is so small that I don't think it'd be robust enough - plus as a small part, there's too much risk of losing it. I decided I'd prefer to make his face an 'easter egg' for those who hold him up to the light and squint through the mesh!
