Ork Runt Bot and Grot – GamesDay 2010

One model that I hope to be able to buy at GamesDay 2010 is the Forge World 2010 Show Only model, an Ork Runt Bot and Grot.


This fantastic figure, designed by Mark Bedford, is our exclusive Event-Only figure for 2010. Meks are always keen to test their bionik designs on the battlefield, and if no suitable ‘patients’ are available they will build a Runt Bot; a huge, clanking parody of an Ork warrior powered by a rumbling engine and directed into battle by a plucky Grot, who will be provided with a ‘kontrol pad’ for the mechanical warrior. This finely detailed and striking vignette depicts the Grot controller perched precariously on the shoulder of the Runt Bot, wrestling with the joystick in an effort to direct the shearing claws of the monstrosity. This great miniature can be used to represent a Warboss with the Bionic Body upgrade, a Nob in Mega-Armour, or simply as a centrepiece or painting project.

Having seen painted versions I do quite like it and think it would make a nice character piece or even as a robot itself. Time to write some rules.
