Adm'rul Kurgan v2.0
New Plastic Pirate Orc Warboss

This is cross-posted from Da Warpath - it took a couple of days to do (I love the last bit of the Christmas; holidays between my Girlfriend going back to work an me going back to work!) I thought I'd share it with you guys as it gives a good insight into my converting and painting methods. Very Happy

I got the WH40k Ork Spearhead for Christmas and the first thing I did with the goodies in the box was make a new fantasy Warboss for my Orc Pirates (Warhammer army). I've been wanting a plastic Warboss for ages as I've gone right off having metal models in a mostly plastic army. My 40K Ork army is almost 100% plastic now and my Pirates are getting close.

Here's what the old Adm'rul used to look like:

Adm'rul Kurgan! AdmrulKurgan1

And this is the start of the new version. He's the same height to the shoulder (as the Warbiker Nob torso is huge! It's the size of body that the plastic Warboss kit should have been!).

Adm'rul Kurgan! HPIM4693
Adm'rul Kurgan! HPIM4694
Adm'rul Kurgan! HPIM4695
Adm'rul Kurgan! HPIM4696

So far I have used: The Warbiker Nob torso, head and arms; Ogre hands (and sword); 2 Empire Outrider pistols; a Dwarf pistol; two trophy-string thingys from the Beastman musician's horn; a Beastman's plat; a Dwarf gunpowder pouch and a Dwarf barrel.

The missing bitz (to be added after the Greenstuff is done):

Adm'rul Kurgan! HPIM4697

Next: the Greenstuff work - stay tuned!

Last bit of work from the first day - I had to let the Greenstuff cure for a few hours at least!

The long coat is a bit hidden by the pistols (I added an extra one, so that's four in total now) and the grog barrel, but it is there.

Added his pointy goatee beard as well.

Not far off finished now! Everything is base-coated and ink washed, the mid-tones are done. Some of the highlights are finished too.

Just the detailing like tattoos, basing and final highlights to go.

Cheers guys!

The hair bitz are from plastic Beastmen: two trophy-string thingys from musician's horns and a Beastman Gor's platted pony tail.

You rock me world matey!

Amazing WBK! Very Happy As always! You are a visionary (and a fantastic converter and post writer too!).

A delight to read/look at. I loved your links to the YouTube music vids (listened to them while reading your post). Very immersive Smile

Thanks 1000 times for sharing!

Arr! I love the pistols that are plastered all around him.

If you have any campaign rules for your Sarasota campaign, let me know I would love to see them.
