Default ORK QUIZ #16 - GARGANTS!

It has been whhhhay to long since the last Ork quiz. And what do Orks do after any period of inactivity? Why we start building .......... GARGANTS!!

This Quiz is dedicated to Freddie Hope (also known as Kangaroo Joe, Hatman, KJ and a half dozen other aliases). To those of you that don't known KJ, he was both a Mod here at Tau Online and something of a character as well. I know I write for all the regular posters here when I state that we miss him.

By the way. We are attempting to raise funds for Cancer Research by modeling a 2000 point Ork army and auctioning it off on E-Bay. If any of you are good modelers and painters, PM me and we'll set you up with a project.

After TWO YEARS I have finally finished modeling my own Gargant model. This is a 'tracked' Gargant with three sets of tracks. It's 19.0 inches long, 15.0 inches across and 14 inches high. It comes to exactly 1850 points using Mister Jervis Johnson's VDR rules. It has five structure points and five Ork Shields. Unlike some Gargant models, this one is not made of Foam like a piece of scenery, its built on a hardwood armature using 1/8th" aircraft modeling plywood as a base. Honestly it wasn't until I primered the thing Panzer Grey that I quit looking on it as a hodge-podge of multi-colored bitz glued and pinned together. Frankly it looks awesome.

NO peeking until I'm done painting, however!!!

Anyway, enough self-promotion! Here is the Quiz. Get eight of the ten questions correct and ya get a Karma point. The bonus question counts towards the eight required. Please DO NOT post the answers here. Just PM them to me ............. Good Luck!


1. Name the two Ork Gods that Orks often model their Gargants after.

2. What is a 'Stompa' ? How large are they in comparison to other Ork Constructs?

3. What is the name frequently given to the largest of Ork Gargants?

4. What class of Orks typically builds Gargants? What are Gargants made of?

5. Would it be correct to write that Ork Gargant design philosophy could be summed up in this quoted exchange from the old section edition book 'Waaargh Orks',

"Ow bigz it gonna be then?"

"Bigger than da Emperor. More gunz too."

6. In what direction will all Ork gunz and Armour face on a 'Propa' Gargant design?

7. What class of Orks make up the bulk of the Gargants 'krew' ?

8. Name a key difference between Imperial Titan Force Fields and Ork Gargant Force Fields.

9. Which one of the following Ork Clans would not have a Gargant? The choices are Goffs, Bad Moonz, Evil Suns, Ferals and Snakebites.

10. Would an Ork Gargant typically have a 'Close Combat' weapon on it?

Bonus Question: Name one of Kangaroo Joe's various Monikers that he has gone by.

Very Best Regards,

Good job, Mage! Eight out of ten correct with the Bonus makes nine. Since all numbers about six are counted as 'Lots' in Ork speak, you have gotten 'Lots' of correct answers!

Karma awarded! Good Job!!

Best Regards,

Any advice on building a Gargant out of wood like you did? Sounds like an interesting prospect. Given the fact I'm going to to have some extra free time in the near future. I might consider building myself some big scratch built. Not saying I'm going to build a Gargant (but I may). How do you go about modeling guns and 'bitz' because I'm sure the rest is relatively simple as it it basically box sections with the measurements taken from a relativistic picture.

I was thinking of a super heavy tank for my guard army, however if I did that (like some of the more older players in my group) I would then have an almost unstoppable army. Hence it would be nice to build something like this as a group model for the three ork players (Who are actually quite good players, gulps).

I like a challenge and well, this is a challenge,
