ok, so it's been a while since I posted, this is mostly down to running around after my wife and our new little snotling!
Anyway, early next year (in February to be exact) there is another SVA Tournament in Reading, and whilst myself and three other Code members played there last year (and MASSIVELY) enjoyed it....
I was on the end of several good hidings.
Stompnutz, to be blunt, wants REVENGE!
so, with the promise of Imperial Armour/Forgeworld army lists being allowed, I sat down and thought to myself
"What would a really, really angry Big Mek, with a particular fascination for Revenge, Stompin' and Gork (or Possibly Mork) build?"
The Answer, (at least in this part of the world) is a Dread Mob!
However, clearly not just any old Dread mob would be blessed by Mork (or Possibly Gork!)
Only a dread Mob built as Effigy's to the Great Orky God's of Kunnin and Krumpin' would do...
so, in short, the 'plan' (and I use this term fairly loosely you understand!) is to create an entire Dread Mob of Gork (or Mork) Effigy's.
1 Meka Dread
2 mega Dreads
15 Killa Kans
all built around the Stompa Chassis, for maximum exposure to the Orky Gods.
I've started small, beginning with a Kan. Using a (solid) Blue Foam core, which I have layered in PVA Glue and Plasticard, I haved then built this up with a lyer of 'plating' whilst scratch-building the arms (Rokkit and CC weapon in this case) All that remains (I believe) for this one, is the power source and flue at the back, and a whole ton of Rivets.
Once this is done, I will mass produce (or at least, as quickly as I am able to do!) the remaining 14 Kans, Whislt I think about exporting and/or changing the design for the larger models.
I'll also do a step by step (although, in fairness, it shouldn't be hard to deduce what I have done here ;) )
and without further ado...
The First of Big Mek Stompnutz' Stompa-Kans!
