At GamesDay 2003 there were a lot of Forge World Warhound Titans which has just been released. Amongst all that Imperial heavy armour was this lone Ork Great Gargant.
This was from Armorcast in the days before Games Workshop took large scale resin models back in house and created Forge World. It was only (in theory) available in the USA and was very difficult if not impossible to get in the UK.
If I could find one, afford one and have the time to paint one, I really would like to get hold of this model, but alas I think everything is against me!
Forge World seem to have no intention of making an Ork Gargant, even with the “green tide” of the new Ork Codex, we have seen very little if any new Ork stuff. There has been a rumour shot of a souped up Ork Trukk…
and some ammo grunts….
but apart from those, very little else.
Though I do wonder what else Forge World may be planning…
If you have been following my workbench feature on my Forge World Ork Gunwagon, you will know that it is nearly finished. Though not quite finished, it’s finished enough for me to use in a game (or two).
It performs quite well, and just ensure you have a few Meks around to fix it when it gets shot to pieces.
I didn’t use any of the resin pieces, but used the large and small slate. I think I will add some barbed wire as well.
I initially decided to paint their backpacks separately, so thought of how I would need to mount them. After much thought (and a fair bit of procrastination) I decided against that idea and stuck the backpacks on.
The Kommandos come with two different backpacks, I’ve thought with the Stikkbombz and Tankbombz that these models would make good Tankbustaz.
Here are the Kommandos.
Here is the Kommandos Mob complete with Big Shoota and Burna.
