Default GARGANT

We Ork players love to build them. Some say that it is because this allows us to use up all those annoying loose bitz we always seem to have lying about. Others say it is because we share that urge that our Mek Boyz proportedly have, the urge to intuitively build things. Truth is, we just like to model.

This Gargant is a little different from most you see in the fluff. It is tracked on two sides with a Tractor up front to pull and steer. Kind of like a gaint Harley Davidson Trike.

Much kit bashing has gone into this project so far. ALL of the models I have used on this so far I bought in a huge three month `fit' over two years ago.
Little did I know that I would end up playing Footslogger Orks, with few vehicles. Both an Ork Gunwagon and Ork Battlewagon are being used to build this monster.

THE business end of an Ork Gargant. It is interesting to note that this VDR Gargant design comes in at over 1850 points! I have armoured it in an interesting fashion however. 14 on the front, 13 on each side and NINE on the rear! Thats right nine on the back? Why? By keeping my armour below 50 points total, this is a FAST Gargant. NO lumbering vehicle here. In addition, it IS NOT an attempt to build an all conguering vehicle to WIN,WIN,WIN!! It is a deliberate Achilles' heel in the design to add FUN in the play of it. Yes, some Space Wolf Scouts just MAY bring it down with Bolter fire, but then again....
