The Ork Project: Biggest and Smallest

Any proper warboss needs a badass ride to drive to (and into) the enemy. I wavered on spending the money to pick up the Genestealer Cult rockgrinder kit for conversion fodder, but the opportunity to build this is what ended up clinching it. I actually managed to get pretty good mileage out the rockgrinder – you’ll see more of it popping up later. But for now, say hello to Super Beast…

Nothing quite like driving over your enemies in a saw-tipped metal monstrosity named after a Rob Zombie song.

The business end, also featuring an insignia I particularly favor (WITNESS!). I laser-cut it out of fiberboard. I’d like to feature it in more parts of the army, but this is about the smallest that the laser I have access to can accurately cut. I’ve designed a version for casting to fix this problem, but I haven’t got around to finishing it yet.

In order to be truly finished it needs side gunners with two more big shootas, but I’m calling it good enough to use in games for now. I’ve also magnetized the top turret so I can upgrade it further if desired.

But what if your ride breaks down and you need somewhere someone to take cover behind while you bash it back into shape?

In their three games so far, these grots have had a bit of a mixed bag – ranging from being sucked into the warp while standing in front of a malfunctioning Shokk Attack Gun, to being unceremoniously shot to death by Chaos Space Marines, to the heights of glorious triumph when they managed to gun down a single Necron Warrior (also while standing in front of a malfunctioning Shokk Attack Gun).

But when you need bullets caught, there’s none more trustworthy. Wouldn’t you trust this face?

Thanks for reading!
