Use The Force

If you guessed that all those Orks I posted last week were leading up to something you were right. Whilst I powered through the newest recruits to the Ork Boys squads I was also chipping away at what may be my favourite Ork model from the last few years, the hulking Big Mek with Kustom Force Field.

As conversions go he’s pretty straightforward, built almost entirely as Games Workshop intended with a simple head-swap for one of the excellent Max-Mini Orc Tech Freak heads.

The face was a joy to paint, full of grumpy character.

Of course, one Big Mek is never enough, especially when the Teleport Blasta looks so damn good as well. However it seems that GW aren’t keen on anyone making both Big Meks from a single box of models as, although there are bodies a plenty (well, three to be precise) and the bits to build both pieces of ‘teknology’ the components needed to attach either the Teleport Blasta or the Kustum Force Field appear only once. Not to worry, a bit of rickety looking Orky scrap metal covers the gap and leaves me with enough bits to start cobbling together his new colleague.
