Meganobz and a Weirdboy

These models don't really have names or a story yet, but I had to buy the new(ish) Meganobz kit. It's a really great kit and you do not have to glue the hands on. The only real decision you have to make is which of the kombi weapons you want to have. Even then, a little creative magnetizing won't be too frustrating.

For now, this represents the last of my Orks until the new codex is released. I do plan on doing some minor infantry touch-ups until then. I also want some of my Tankbustas to be in this scheme and all of my Lootaz.

This Weirdboy conversion was built for me by a buddy.

New Blood for Da Krumpin Squad

Warboss Thudguts pledged himself and his warband, Da Krumpin Squad, to Drillteef after the Painboss brought him back from the brink of death on the killing fields of Torgazond. Although the Warboss came out of the operation with a belly full of kustom organs, he could still fight and lead his Boyz to victory.

Da Krumpin Squad served at Drillteef's pleasure for years. The crew was always known as the "Goff-iest" of all the warbands in the WAAGH! They were known for collecting the most esoteric (and functionally overcomplicated) close combat weaponry based solely on the shape of the dent it would leave in an adversary's skull.

Recent years have been trying for WAAGH! Drillteef, but Thudguts has remained loyal to the cause throughout. Such was his loyalty that Thudguts, with the assistance of his closest adviser, Weird Zagwarp, who helped Drillteef wrest control of his WAAGH! back from Boss Krakbone despite the Painboss's recent failures. This is fortunate since Da Krumpin Squad's method of warfare has become more and more necessary since the galaxy has become even more unforgiving and brutal.

Da Krumpin Squad has never been the biggest or most influential warband to march under Drillteef's banner, but the Boyz who follow Big Boss Thudguts are always willing to take the vanguard and crack some heads in the warlord's name.

Two New Gorkanauts

The cloud of Ork vessels hurling towards the ongoing big fight in Ultima Segmentum is not only crammed with Orks, but billions of tonnes of heavy machinery. Among them are Big Mek Dreadnutz's Dread Mob. Among these clanking gods of war are two new machines.

Kommandos in the field reported back to Dreadnutz that an army of Beakies with shiny, yellow armour called the Lamentors had finally received some reinforcements, so they were worth a proppa fight. Of course, Dreadnutz sent all the burnas and lootaz he could spare to attack the Beakies and take whatever they could. Although severely diminished in number, the Orks were able to return with one of the Beakies' beautiful new vehicles. As such, the Repulsork was born!

Look at these worky bitz!

So much dakka! Perhaps still not enough!

The Repulsork has already had a few early victories!

Dreadnutz has also created a Gorkanaut to convey his personal bodyguard of Meganobz into battle. Of course, the Gorkanaut is quite formidable in its own right.


Here's the list I'm going to use at the club tonight in order to try out the new war machines. This list is awful, but I love it. The idea is to make an Orky Imperial Knights list with the hangers-on you'd expect to find alongside a Big Mek's Dreadmob.
