This was an all-metal model. When I first started buying Orks I didn't really have any intention of building one of these, but as I started looking at list builds, you'd be crazy not to. Since the model has such a stout mounting peg on the right foot, I decided to go ahead and mount him on his resin base from the start:
The included GW base vs. the Iron Halo resin base
Drilling a hole for the mounting peg w/ a pin vise
Kustom Force Field & head attached
There was lots of flash to be filed, but relatively little Green Stuff work needed - just the cable that goes from the hand controller to the Kustom Force Field / backpack. overall there will probably be little "Freeboota-fying" done to this model - as with my Painboy, I hate to mess with such a beautiful sculpt, so I'll rely on the base and the paint scheme to tie this model in with the rest of the army...
