Games Workshop have on their website details of the new Ork Deff Dread and new Ork Killa Kans. Check out these links for more pictures and ordering information.
I do like the new Killa Kans which come three to a boxed set.
Killa Kans are essentially giant metal canisters on piston-driven legs that sport lethal close combat attachments and heavy-duty weaponry. One of their limbs usually ends in deadly-looking power shears or a great blood-encrusted buzz saw, whilst the other is a large calibre weapon welded to the opposite side.
This box set contains three multi-part plastic Ork Killa Kans. This 94-piece set includes: three variations of Cockpit, three different close combat weapons, a big shoota, a rokkit launcha and a skorcha. Also included are a host of glyphs, armour plates, horns, metal teef and dangly bitz. Models supplied with 60mm round bases.
You don’t get the chance to arm all three with the same weapon which is a standard tactic when using Ork Killa Kans, my metal models are all armed with Rokkit Launchas for example. But I am sure that if you wanted to swap there may be people you could swap with. I might use metal weapons, or spare weapons from the other plastic Ork kits I have.
I am less enthusiastic about the Deff Dread, but then I didn’t really like the old metal Ork Dreadnought. Still quite an impressive plastic kit. I am thinking the main reason I don’t like it, is the four arms!
Deff Dreads epitomise three main ideal of Ork warfare: big, shooty and stompy. They thunder and clank towards the foe, limbs waving as heavy weapons spit death into the enemy ranks and powered shears snip excitedly in anticipation of the bloodletting to come.
This box set contains one multi-part plastic Ork Deff Dread. This 86-piece set includes: two cockpit sights, 10 different glyphs, five different close combat weapons, two big shootas, two rokkits, two kustom blastas, a skorcha, and other assembly options. Model supplied with a 60mm round base.
I am very tempted by the Killa Kans (not like that I don’t already have enough ork stuff to paint). Models are out on the 6th March.
