Didn't like the last pose, so I took a step back and reworked things. I like this much better, seems to do a better job of fitting with Ghaz's fluff as a CC animal:

Also, Jeff shamed me into getting the model completely out of the "blu-tac" stage and onto a base. Still a lot to do, but he's solid and playable at least.

Ghaz and the Avatar, up to their old tricks:

Okay, now I'll start applying GS and bits.

A little more work done on Ghaz. Reshaping and positioning the power klaw, trying to make it seem more sinister.
After cutting off the original gun barrels, I had a better understanding of why I didn't like them...they're tiny. I went back and forth about their replacement, trying to decide between one big shoota barrel or two. I then realized I was being silly, and used all three.

Playing with the pose amongst other models to get a sense of scale (or lack of... he's pretty huge). Regardless, I don't think the marines are going to make it:

Finally settled on this pose and pinned his arms in place. The more I look at this stance, the less I like it, but nothing has been done that can't be undone...we'll see.

I may change the pose, raising the PK slightly and lowering the gun arm so it's slightly cross body (pointing at the ground in front of him). Feel free to weigh in on this.

In the meantime, I'll greenstuff over the first layer of milliput on the legs and torso and start adding glyph and armor bits (can't have him looking so spindly).

If I played Space Wolves...

...I wouldn't be able to resist these:

5 different poses, found here:

Pricey maybe, but good variety and some pretty cool looking minis.

The more Orks fight, the bigger they get. So I figure the 3rd Edition model of Ghaz should be even bigger now. Someone out there had an idea for him being a monstrous creature when the 6th Edition comes out, that might be cool.

Anyway, I'm working on beefing Ghazzy up:

Break him down before I build him up-

Much drilling later-

I'm still thinking about the end pose, but here's one idea-

I won't use the big shoota shown, but I do like the idea of lengthening his gun barrels. I think he'd look better on a 60mm instead of the 40mm he comes with, but I don't want to deal with jibber-jabber when fielding him, as some might construe a larger base as an advantage. Maybe I'll rig the base so I can play him on either.

Now more drilling and pinning, milliput and greenstuff.
