Big Meks

I've had two Big Mek "characters" in my army. One came into being as part of the Nobs mob in 3rd. edition where he was just a lowly Mekboy toting around a Kustom Force Field that looked like a satellite dish, he was known as Duruk Rukus... later to be known as Duruk "Da Fixxa" Rukus when he became a Big Mek.

The other Big Mek character that led my Kult of Speed forces atop his kustom Battlewagon was Shuvva Luggitz who carried an old school Shokk Attack Gun that counted as a "Supa-Force Field Projekta" which in game terms was a Kustom Force Field and a vehicle Force Field from the Apocalypse: Kult of Speed army list. Shuvva led my Speed Kult to numerous victorys in 3rd and 4th edition.

Now that the Shokk Attack gun is back I can field both Big Meks if so inclined. Character wise, I was always partial to Shuvva Luggitz but I am more inclined to field Duruk 'Da Fixxa' Rukus and the newer Big Mek model with the Kustom Force Field. One day in the future I may actually convert a fitting Shuvva Luggtiz model as I always invisioned him with a Power Klaw but for right now I'm good with 'Da Fixxa'...

Waaagh! Gargunki!

The orks are without a doubt what I consider my 'main' army. I have somewhere between 3500 and 4000 points painted and around 6000 points total. This includes a Stompa with a kustom Deff Arsenal, a Forge-world Mega-Dread and a Shokk Attack Gun Battery to name a few. I've used my entire army in a game just one time. Was that fun! I can field any unit in the Ork codex except Flashgitz and Big Gunz (which I sold).

I once had an entire army of 1st and 2nd edition orks completely painted that I sold, and also a 2000pt unpainted army I sold as well... this would have put my ork horde at close to 10,000 points... and I honestly don't need that many orks, haha.

This was one of my first conversions thats been updated extensively. It's a Chaos Rhino split in half and expanded width-wise. It's made from various bits including two 2nd ed. Pulsa Rokkits (counted as turbo-boostas in 3rd edition, but decided to keep them because they look cool.), a 2nd ed. Hop-Splat Gun (Kannon), old Imperial Firebase parts, a Rouge Trader era Dreadnought head (Yar-Two Dee-Two), and a ton of plasticard (the hull, plates, and Deff-Rolla).

The Deff-Rolla is my favorite vehicle upgrade ever! Not only does it wreck shit good and proppa but it allows you to reroll Dangerous Terrain!

They see me (Deff) Rollin'... They hatin'!
