Concept Sketches Ork Landa

Concept Sketches Ork Landa from the Fanatic Stand at UK GamesDay 2004.

This is the original concept sketch of the new Epic Ork Landa.

if you look closely you will see that even with the sketch are the words…

“size about the same as the Thunderhawk”.

I wish they had thought differently and done a much bigger model, in my minds the finished metal casting is on the small side.

I do wonder if Forgeworld will do something…

Extra Large Ork Landa

Now here’s a way of getting lots of Orks on the ground…

I was thinking about the Defence Force and about having some aircraft or ships larger than the ones sold by Forgeworld (and GW) and have thought about for some time a large Ork Heavy Bomber converted from the FW Imperial Maurauders.

I also like the Landa concept from Epic Armageddon though I think the model is somewhat too small (hopefully FW will bring out a “bigger” in scale version).

I also noticed the resemblance between the Landa and the Rebel Transport in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

Large Rebel Transport

As I purchased many moons ago the AMT/ERTL Hot Base kit which comes with an approximate 1/200th scale model kit of the Rebel Transport, I got thinking. It would make a great Extra Large Landa (or should that be a Big Landa in Ork speak).

I had thought originally about using the Transport as an Imperial Transport, but the more I look at it the more I keep thinking Ork Landa…
