Default Passable NobsBox Painboy?

I bought a box of Nobs this weekend, and had heard that with a little conversion, I could make one of them a Painboy. Why.. Feel No Pain Nobs?? Yes please!!

So, with some snipping, and plastic welding, heres what I came up with:

Here we go: the "Doks Toolz", and "'Urty S'ringe" in place of normal Nobs weapons. The bosspole is gonna have the Doks glyph (triangle) painted on, and the shoulderpad is gonna be painted bone color, so its a bone instead of a wrench, or whatever its normally supposed to be. Painboy= Dok= "bones" get it?? :P

Heres a better look at the kitbashed Doks tools, and I went for a chainsaw + mechanical industrial stapler looking sorta tool. kitbashing a slugga and one of the more "serjikal" looking big choppas. Let me know if its good, perfect, or a little clunky... Im still not too sure on it.

The big Needle looks especially nasty, dont it? I LIKE the concept that Nobs will "feel no pain" simply because they DONT want the painboy werkin on them with those scary tools!!! ;D

And yes, the arms are pinned/poseable/changeable. All my boys are gonna be. Using the jumbo pins make this great, as the large diameter makes them act a bit like bearings (see http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...tml#msg1323247)

So, let em know what you think; is the doks tools too clunky? (Just remember: industrial power stapler.. lol)
By all means, post your own nobs box Painboy, and share how you did yours!

Though I walk through the valley of the swarms of the clueless, I shall fear no idiocy, for the M-STAR flagged them 12 seconds ago, and the JDAMS are already freefalling.

I can't see where the staples will come out. :P

I also think the head would have been better represented with a green stuffed surgical mask and hat.

Other than that, I love the idea. I especially like the chainsaw for those annoying things like limbs that get in the way, but I want to see the stapler part of that.

The syringe is perfect (fluff behind the doc fits very well too >).

He looks one mean painboy!

Urty Syringe actually looks like a mini - rokkit on a slugga, try and do a bit of cutting to make it less like a rokkit.

I planned on getting 2 box sets of nobs myself and might make myself a painboy with the help of my bitz box that is, :P

He will definitely pass as a painboy. I did something similar for mine; gave him the left arm buzzsaw and made an urty syringe from a slugga and a paper clip. I used the crossed bones bosspole for mine though, but I guess that could be a deathskulls one too.
