(Look at pics below every explanation)
With most of the body work done it was time to tackle the arms, again as with the legs, one claw arm was bionically enhanced and the other entirely mechanical. The focal point on this being the huge powerclaw to give the fex that all-destructive close combat feel. Some of the ribs were replaced with steel pipes and bolts, addition of a bionic eyepiece and parts were riveted up. It already looked like it could crush everything and everyone!
A little bit of a jump forward, here it sits with a big new $@*?%- gun grafted to its second right arm. More exhausts were added, the positioning still giving it the Carnifex feel but transforming it more to a machine-beast. Painting well underway, I chose fleshy tones for the Fex to contrast with the metals and wiring.
Finished! The last gun-arm in place, everything painted up in scruffy metals and fleshy bits, and last but not least, a controle device receiver on top of its head. This will eventually be accompanied with a separate Mek model holding a controller.
At some points it was hard to se were this was going or what I should do next, but in the end it turned out great! This is easily one of the favourite models in my whole Ork army and will be used as an Ork Dreadnought.
