Mek Gunz!

If it ain't human, and it ain't from the warp, then it must be Xenos.

Mek Gunz!

Post by OrkyChaos » Fri Jun 13, 2014 2:21 pm

The Mek Gunz are up for pre-order on the website. It looks like it comes in 4 variants and they all look awesome! I'm the most excited about the lifta dropa and the anti flyer tractor beam.

I know this post is a tad premature since the rules aren't out yet but I couldn't help myself.

The new Shokk Attack gun is drop-dead gorgeous! I am going to have to buy two of those!

I really wish I had $400 to toss away ... that Ork Gunline package would be PERFECT for my Waaagh! Fortunately I will be able to buy all those goodies piecemeal, but still ...

the new shokk attack gun is a complete copy of the finecast one but with a slightly altered face and lightning on the gun balls

No, it's actually a total resculpt taking influence from Seb Perbet. The new White Dwarf shows close up shots, and if you have the old one you can compare it. They are similar, but different.

For instance, take a look at the Snotling. It's twisted and warping into...well, warp energy. The gun itself doesn't have all that loose wiring, it's cabled. And there is a giant mechanical arm on it, to stabilize the gun.

No Boomgun? :(

Cheaper maybe, but I'd prefer the current Boomgun over Killkannon anyday.
Apologies if I talk positively about games that I enjoy.

Well at least my Looted Wagons won't go to waste. I'm kinda sad that it's downgraded from the Boomgun to a Killkannon but I do like that now I can rock even more deff rollas.

i can see the differences, but they are all very minor. the head is a resculpt, the body has a shirt, the grot is slightly warped at the feet, and the gun has a few wires and a mechanical arm. for the most part, the tube is the same, the gun body is the same right down to the glyphs. im not denying they changed some stuff, but it doesnt seam like a resculpt and i dont think it is different enough for me to put a 4th shokk attack gun into my force. i already have 2 metal old ones, and a metal, really old one.

that mek and painboy thing looks really cool, maybe the painboys will give +1 to fnp giving orks a 5+ :P im feeling pretty good about this new dex
