Converting Grukk! Warboss Conversion Complete.

So this Grukk conversion is complete.  My intent is to use him as a cheap HQ or as part of a greater formation.  I like the idea of running 3 Warbosses, 3 Big Meks and a Weirdboy in with a bunch of other orky mayhem.

 Kept him pretty simple:

Converting Grukk! Warboss Conversion Part 1

GW makes crappy Warbosses.  There, I said it.  They are very derivative of each other.  The AoBR Boss is solid, especially for a "Starter" figure, but not much variety.  Grukk, from Stormclaw, was a great  opportunity to do something different, and they blew it.  The best thing about the figure is the back (it's not covered in equipment), but no pose ability at all.  But it is different then the AoBR boss, and not the classic, weedy boss we've had forever so choppy chop!
Here's where I'm at so far:

Quick Hit Friday - Ork Warbike Nob

With the new codex Biker Nobs as a unit are a bit overcosted, but normal Warbikes are great!.  I figured I'd keep enough Nobz for 1 unit and build the Warbikers with the bits I had left over.  In order to keep the units visibly different I'm going for a less is more approach.  With the Bikernobz I loaded them with gear and converted the crap out of them, but for these boys I'm keeping everything more toned down.  The unit Nob here is a bit of an exception, he is a Nob after all.  I'm using Kromlech heads and torsos for the entire unit (biker gang!).  The power claw is from the AoBR Warboss, trimmed up a bit to fit.  I'm not fan of the weedy ones that come with the normal kits.  I'm short a dakkagun, so I'll scratchbuild one for this guy.  The front fairing is just on of the wheel rams put together in a different way.  Here's the WiP for this guy:

Ramshackle Games - Stuff I like

If you haven't checked out Ramshackle Games, do.  I've seen some of their kits firsthand and they are great.  Good alternatives for some of the existing kits out there.  Their newest is my favorite so far:
