Scratch Built Orky Deff Dread


I need more Dredds for my Big Mek Dread Mob. I try to make each orky vehicle different because da Meks don't use production lines. This little beauty is scratch built from all sorts of odd bits. I have gone for an upright look to contrast with GW dreads.

I always give da dreads close combat weapons and a burna - useful for winkling grots out dere hidey holes.

Note da sensa pack on da top.


Rear view wiv da heat exchanga for blowing off spare gas. Spare gas build up in a dread is a real problem, especially if the pilot has been on da squigg beer.

Against a GW dredd to show the scale.

  3. Very fresh, but still Orky. It's good to branch out and get away from standard approaches. We think of Ork tech as bulky, but there's no reason it has to be, and if Waaagh! energy keeps contraptions running, stands to reason the looser jalopies could hold together and maybe be better represented. I like it, and I'm interested in where the bitz came from too.

  5. Dear Porky
    It is largely made from Airfix robowar bits, plus arms from steampunk suppliers and varios GW odds and ends including a drum.

  7. Dear Igi
    No the leg is from Airfix robogear. These kits are sold off very cheap as obsolete stock on eBay.

  8. It would make a very nice alternative leg even for a dreadnought.

  10. Fear not that the life shall come to an end, but rather fear that it shall never have a beginning Sell RS Gold, What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know.It's what we know for sure that just ain't so Sell Runescape Gold, Life is like a hot bath. It feels good while you're in it, but the longer Sell RS Gold you stay in, the more wrinkled you get.

  11. Would you write to please D3 Gold just yourself? Or others? Or yourself by writing for others Cheap D3 Gold? It takes strength to do what must be done when the work is unpleasant and uncomfortable D3 Gold Sale, And of what would you write: Of love? Hate? Fun? Misery? Life? Death?Nothing Everything?
