This guy may be the most complex, but he was actually the first one I started. His legs are repositioned so he can fit on a 25mm square base, in case I want to use him as a warpfire thrower or ratling gun attached to a clanrat unit instead of a rat ogre. He comes with an attached gunner which can count as a packmaster or not. I love the left claw arm, which is a classic Ork bit. Can't beat $1.50 for a power claw! I just sculpted an shoulder armor pad over the join and added rivets from plastic rod. The hard part was the metal chain, which didn't have any good attachment points on the gun, and required a sculpted attachment to the shoulder.

This is not the only augmented rat ogre with an optic sensor replacing an eye. My vision for all the Skryre models was to have some sort of warpgoggles or optic piece replacing one or both eyes. I found that all the bitz I ordered for these conversions didn't quite fit right on any models; most were too large, as you can see here.

The gunner is the operator of the warp lightning cannon model, which fit great onto the conversion. All I had to do was add a short bit to attach his lever hand to the gun, so you'll see that his lever is angled.
