My Converted Ork Nob Bikers Unit Update Part 2

 So with a 1000pts 40k tournament this weekend this is currently on my to-do list, to get them finished. And I am quite pleased when it turned out. As I said in my last post and quite late to the party when it comes to nob bikers, and in this post I'm going to update yourself in regards to progress and how things are coming on. So make sure you look at  My Converted Ork Nob Bikers unit Part 1 as things are moving along quite nicely.

The biggest change  is, I decided to do mudguards on the front wheels, as I think it makes them a little bit more chunkier, which in turn makes the model as a whole a little bit more unique on the table. I want them to get recognised for the old bikes but I do want them to be a little bit different.

Above you can see a close-up shot of the mud guard and looking at the front keeps the unit a little bit more up-to-date.

Sorry but I'm not going to go into a lot of detail in regards to the exhaust fumes, as I'm going to leave it to another post to go into a little bit more detail.

I also decided to shorten the barrel's of all the big shooters on the bikes as I think it looks a little bit better.

Probably the most important nob in the whole unit with his power claw, I also still have to do is WHAAAA banner, although I have a sneaky plan which hopefully might save some time.

When it came to doing the shoota/skorcha Kombi-weapon, I really was struggling on what the best way was, considering he is wielding a two-handed axe, it was becoming quite difficult, but sometimes simplicity is the best option. So after a little bit of trial and error I decided that this was probably the best way by simply removing one of the big shoota's.

So there you have it another day another update so enjoy.


  1. Those glyph plates are great.

  2. Nice work! Love the mix of new and old, the unit is coming along very well!

    1. There's definitely something about the old bikes that makes them still look good.

  3. I'm with Chris, i like the gylph plates on the front. Especially the ones missing their bolts.
