Weirdboy Battle Tower 13


Second pintle Big Shoota is sorted and both have had the GS welds done. Unfortunately I don't appear to have any Ork Boyz to convert into gunners, so I am now waiting for the sprue I ordered off ebay to arrive for those.

The second Big Shoota is lower in relation to the walkway height, but I still think it'll need a firing step. But untill I get the Boyz for gunners I won't be able to do them.

Now, you may remember I have been stuck for sometime with what to do with this empty box like area;

Well I finally had a spark of inspiration...

Converted a grot and a squig from a Grot box, I have named the squig Squiggles.

The box area had some work done on it, namely on the inside but I also had to redo the rivets on the outside - originally thought was that you wouldn't see the inside so it didn't matter if the rivets didn't line up with anything. I also had to add another piece to the roof at the front.

I then knocked up a gate:

And when you put them all together you get a Squig Pen...

Many a grot has been lost over the edge and impaled
on the walkway spikes when releasing Squiggles.

Squiggles is used to hunt down any Weirdboyz that may get loose, as well as to keep some of the Madboyz away (he is generally unsuccesful in this).


  1. Ye gods that's a monster!

    Awesome work! Can't wait to see it finished and painted.

  2. Cheers.

    Alas I can see it being a couple of more weeks yet till it is finished, shame as I'm already planning the next one...
