Ork Gargant by Snowfyre Ork Gargant by Snowfyre
Finally, another warhammer 40000 post.

A Scratch built Ork Gargant I built for Apocalypse. (too bad no rulez for them yet. )
DA HUMIE KILLA ( MK II for the full gargant )

What is a ork Gargant? :?
Warhammer 40000:
Well, Ork Gargants are ork versions of Titans. They are very massive walkers that bristle with overly large weaponry.
This is the smallest of the ork gargants..... in game terms, this thing is supposed to be 4 stories tall.
And they are crewed by an army of orks, meks etc etc..... and an even larger swarm of grots......
And are prone to catching fire.......

Stompas are small gargants.

Leslie: Though currently wondering if it's big enough to be a Gargant or simply a Supa-Stompa..... It's hard to classify ork stuff

The full model itself stands 13 inches tall and can be disassembled into 11 pieces for use as terrain or for storage.
Gargant itself has a total of 4 decks in the body for troop models to be put in. with enough space for even dreads.

Also the lowest layer and the belly gun can be removed (they are attached using magnets) and the feet attached directly to the hull so that the thing can be fielded as a (legal ) stompa.

So yes. This is my First completely scratch-built model. Total cost bout 35 - 40 bucks.... mostly for purchasing pipes and the tiling material.... and magnets.
Majority is made using cardboard.
Some plumbing parts used too. Also quite a few bitz.... and a detachable (optional ) bassie cannon.

Also my first Super-heavy unit.

And I love the TITAN CHAINSAW!!!! :chainsaw:
Oh joy of all joys. A strength D weapon...... I.e. one that is so powerful that it doesn't have a strength number and inflicts instant death on whoever is unfortunate enough to be well.........

Though shots were rather hurriedly taken (when packing up my stuff). May eventually re post it in another pic if I get a better shot.
Not exactly satisfied with the focus. Specially cause it was hurriedly taken yesterday before I packed it away.

Unpainted, it looked like this: [link]

Trivia bout me

Well, I donnoe, but oddly enough I seem to build my armies with a very orky mentality. What I find amusing is that it's strikingly similar to how a real ork army amasses.

Down to the point where when the army is getting really really big in preparation for a massive WAAAGH!!! they start constructing Gargants...... shortly after the mekboyz (like me ) start getting funny ideas bout a gargant.

Odd. :?

________________________________________ ___

For those of you that have no idea, this is a translation of some of the things you may see on the Gargant:

1) Beekee/ Beakie / Beekie (or similar pronounciation)
= Marine.

2) Humie
= Human

3) Dakka
= More noisy...... also associated with more firepower from shooting.

4) Gork
= Ork God. (one of the two )

5) Mekboyz
= Mechanic (Similar. )

6) Panzee
= Eldar

7) Da
= the

Rest are mostly ork-versions of usual spellings.

Space orks are from Warhammer 40000 From and (C) gamesworkshop.
