Orks: Killa Kans - Part 2 (Dreadtober 2016)

It's Dreadtober Week 2.

The objective for this week is to get your model(s) built so I've been busily drilling, pinning and gluing and this is what I've produced:

So all those bits have resolved themselves into four models. Some improvisation has had to be done. I mentioned before that this was a pile of eBay junk. If you look, you will see that only the model with the red-tipped missiles actually appears to be a complete Killa Kan.

The model behind it to the right has an improvised left arm (I think there should be another joint but there's a bit missing).

The model behind it to the left is sporting a right-arm the like of which I have never seen. It certainly looks Orky, but seems way too big for a Kan. Also, I didn't notice at first but it doesn't have regular Kan legs - they are actually legs from an earl 1990's Epic scale (6mm) Imperial Reaver Titan model! I happen to know this for a fact as I'm part-way through painting one for my Epic Ultramarines project.

Front left is a legacy Ork dreadnought from way back in the Rogue Trader era, but the original hatch is long lost so this is a Rogue Trader Rhino hatch with a boss-pole that was originally from one of the other Kans but snapped off. Since the RT model is comparatively light on detail I thought it might work better there.
