Default Ghaz lookalike

Hello everyone! i'm running Ghazghull Mal Thraka in my 'Ard Boyz list, but have no desire to purchase the $35 model. Does anyone know what size base the model comes on? I'm converting/kitbashing my own Ghazghull, but I need to size to make it fully WYSIWSG.

I'm guessing you're asking about the size of the base? I think you're missing a word up there.

As far as I know, he comes on a 40mm base. I've never bought him, though, so if someone who has would like to verify, I'd be grateful.

Hope that helps and make sure to show up the end result.

I have the actural Ghazhkull model at home, for 20 it was quite expensive but what terrors he gives out to people is made me think qute worth it, ;D

Yes he comes on a 40mm base, and you could make him out of a meganob, but for the big shoota he has like 2 big shootas stuck together, but still called a big shoota (dont ask why)
the Power klaw is standard, he also has some horns sticking out of the side of his armour (next to his head) and his banner-like thing is a big animal's skull and has a few glyphs hanging off the sides

Hope this helps.

Just to give you an idea of actual size, I found this. Looks like someone just photoshopped them both in there but having seen him it looks about right.

For the horns on him you could use some from the new killa kan sprue (or deff dread if there are horns in their new sprue)

Thanks for the advice, everyone! I've decided to use the old metal warboss I don't use anymore, the one with the choppa and twin-linked shoota. Seeing as I would've pawned him off anyway, it seems fair I might as well do something.

As for posting him up here, this is purely for WYSIWYG. I'm going to make it look as good as possible, but keep in mind I'll be using spare sprues. He won't be winning any conversion contests in the near future.

I used the tusks on a kan. He doesn't technically need them.

And mega-armor will definitely be the toughest and most important part.

Thanks everyone :funny:
