Hi!
I just purchased this sweetie today, and have several doubts about it. I've never been into Gorkamorka too much. I thought it may be a big lugga, but i haven't seen any in ages so I might be wrong. It appears to be complete, it came with the fan and the spoiler as well as the greenies.

Is it still available anywhere? If so, I couldn't find it or I looked in the wrong place

Many thanks

extremely rare? dammit, then should I consider it worth the 10€ (7) I paid for it?

It is nice, anyway. Will do for a sweet diorama indeed

If you're looking for model ids can I suggest www.solegends.com as they've got a number of online citadel resources (http://www.solegends.com/citadel/index.htm) which are ideal for collectors trying to id old miniatures.

I have to admit, when I saw...last post "t-tauri" I thought: OMG, you did some mischief and got your tread closed!

Now seriously, thanks for the link and for the quick reply. Albeit I didn't see any specific reference to Gorkamorka, did I miss something?. Anyway, having so many information is priceless

Many thanks, Oop

Except they have no GorkaMorka or models from after '94.

Anything before then, you'll never find a better site for finding it.

I do!:p
It's just not assembled yet. All in due time. After searching a little I realized there was not a single piece missing.
I've never played gorkamorka and have only seen a few models, but if there are many like this...Boy! that's what I call a nice mini!

Trash Piles? I love the current vehicles.

My only intial complaint was the drivers were too small, but I have worked it into my fluff that the drivers, gunners, etc are a sub sect of the Ork species that are physically weaker than there Slugga Boy-style bretheren, and thusly get driving duty.

Well maybe "trash piles" was a bit harsh, but come on, that buggy is beautiful! And while the current vehicles are kinda cool, its kinda like they erased every aspect of that little trukk from the current ones. When people love a mini, you dont go and say "Well I've decided were gonna fly off the handle, trash this thing, and make up something new!" They should have at least kept some of the design of that one in the current range.

All the current ork vehicles are older than the lugga.

Indeed they are. Terminator, please visit our national forum!

I have one of these in a bag too.
What is the general thought on what it'd be worth??

A fair old bit I imagine. I'd pay at least 25 quid for a full kit. At least.

Awww man I miss my Rebel Grots now. I had a full mob of them with both the lugga and the cutta *sighs* stupid parents and their inability to know which boxes shouldn't be thrown out.

Oh jeah, I still have one of these in somewhere in my basement. A good reason to play Gorkamorka again.
