Braglub, The rarest ork in the world - Tribute

Long time ago, me and my brother Burgers, we was hitchhiking down a long and lonesome road...

Now you are probably aware that there are some models out there that reach absurd levels of fame and price because of their rarity. Amongst those, you can find Braglub. You know Braglub right ?

Given how easy to find all the other guys on the page are easy to find, I bet this poor variant of Shugbro is worth like 3 quid tops and you have him in any sizable joblot right ?

Well think again, he's on the podium for Citadel's rarest models ever, you'll get a fistful of Original 2nd ed Kemler before you even see a Braglub pop on ebay.

Now of course, looking at the WD picture above, you'd just have to find a Shugbro and the appropriate head (there are some perfect donors in the 3rd ed orc range)but that wouldn't be fun right ?

So instead some good soul had a proxy sculpted and I had the chance to get one of these, that gives me the chance to paint of the most iconic models of our hobby and still keep both kidneys. Tribute.

Of course I painted mine to fit with my existing Ork band, I feel like a set of goff rockers wouldn't be too out of place amongst them right ?
