Evening all,

My Orks have been sat in a rut for months needing bits and pieces here and there. Well over the past week I've sat down and finished (save for riggers) my Ruzzbot which had been sat half finished for 6 months on my shelf:

Well in preparation for Apocalypse I want to get a gargant ready to roll. Also, the Leeds GW store usually has an Orks vs. Everyone megagame every summer but for some reason it's not been arranged yet - I'm hoping to change that! Here's the basic concept for the gargant:

And I'm in the early stages of construction atm:

The basic model is being made out of foamboard since it's lightweight, easy to cut and surprisingly strong if you take the time to put supports in and cover the corners with card/plasticard. Once I've got the frame together, I'll be going over the edges with card plating and then adding details/weapons etc with plasticard. Total height should be between 11 and 12" - just bigger than a warhound. I'm wanting a belly kannon gun, with a gatling zapp gun on one arm and various other small arms all round the model.

Anyway, back to construction!

That's awesome, I want to see it finished. Scratch built models always impress me. I aslo agree with Jasevx the model is HUGE.

I'll be following this thread,

Good Luck, watching for progress.:)
