Fat Orks?

Howdy all,

I'm looking to play "The Wolf Time" campaign from The book of the Astronomican later in year. I've got a lot to prepare, but I'm a little stuck on one of the main characters. I won't spoil it for anybody who's yet to play it or who wants to in the future, but suffice it to say that I'm looking for the fattest space ork mini there is. It doesn't have be GW, can be any manufacturer for all I care, he just has to have been gifted with "love handles aplenty" :D

Cheers

Re: Fat Orks?

I didn't find a mini for Kulo, so I used a regular Ork, but in fact I was tempted to make some conversion work on an Ogre, he had a proper belly. If you find a suitable mini, please share, I'd love to see what you get :)

Re: Fat Orks?

Good idea Suber, I'd never thought of using an ogre for a base model. GW never made a mini for him did they? It's a shame really, they should have made personality minis for all the characters listed in the Astronomican......would have been sweet huh :D

I may end up converting up a placky ork or something, not sure yet.

Cheers.

Re: Fat Orks?

If you can stomach the cost or get lucky on the 'Bay then a Greasus Goldtooth from Ogre Kingdoms is about the fattest GW model ever (barring maybe great unclean ones).

Otherwise I've converted an ogre maneater to be a big fat ork warlord, they often come with seperate belly plates too which makes gut-sculpting less stressful :D I'll find a pic if I can, its an ancient conversion that never was completed...

Re: Fat Orks?

Some Kev Adams Foundry War orcs or mercenary ogres are orcs with big bellies and could be used as the base for a conversion.

The war orcs have basic fittings and should be easily equipped with modern/sci-fi stuff.

Re: Fat Orks?

Hi guys,

I think I may have found the perfect candidate for my Ork character, but it's from a boardgame, Battlelore second edition. He's called "Obscene"....for obvious reasons. Have a gander at him:

I've searched on eBay & FF's website, but to no avail. Looks like I can't buy him anywhere. Thought I'd try my luck with you good chaps :lol:

Fingers crossed, cheers.
