I know some people don’t like the humourous aspects of the Orks, personally I do quite like those aspects. The concept behind the Ork Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun of hoovering up snotlings and flinging them across the battlefield is just like so Orky.
The Shokk Attack Gun is a devastating Ork weapon that hurls Snotlings through the warp, sending them mad in the process. When they reappear, they are frenzied creatures, capable of bringing down the toughest of enemies – especially if they materialise inside an enemy’s armour!
It’s probably why I like the Grot Bomb Launcha so much. The metal Ork Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun is a very nice model and you get the following metal parts.
They fit together quite easily, however it is quite difficult to ensure that all the parts fit.
In the most recent UK White Dwarf they had some pictures of the new models they are releasing for their new summer campaign.
One of these is a Ork Big Mek.
It will be nice to see some new Ork models.
I hope this is something we will see more of, I have disliked the way that GW release whole armies now and whilst doing so ignore the other armies.
I have often wondered about this strategy especially in terms of people adding to their armies. I also suppose that some people will always go out and buy the new big thing (whether they paint it is a different story).
I like what GW use to do back in the 1980s when they released new miniatures every month for a range of armies rather than concentrating on two big releases like they do now.
Also released this summer will be some new Ork Kommandos.
