This Is What Happens When Warhammer 40k Orks Loot a Gundam

Twin buzzsaws make everything better.

Space is big. You just won't believe how mind-bogglingly big it is. While the Imperium of Man spans millions of worlds, there are still many alien worlds that require cleansing. As such, it's entirely possible that a freak warpstorm might dump a Gundam or two onto a planet infested by Orks. After all, they already invaded Hearthstone. Hobbyist "Irondog" created just such a mashup, showing what a Gundam would look like if it got looted by a band of Warhammer 40K Orks.

He starts out with a classic Gundam RX-78 model and then gets to work. Extra bits of armor get bolted on in a haphazard fashion, and the hands are replaced with dual buzzsaws, naturally. There's a ton of little details, covering the model, like the spiked toes added to the feet, and the hoses/wires powering the new additions. My favorite are the little chains connected to the twin buzzsaws. They're so cute.

Irondog documents the entire conversion process in pictures, which is as fascinating as it is impressive. He's also built an Ork Stompa out of a Mr. Potatohead and an Ork Warboss riding Akira's motorcycle. Personally, I'd like to see what an Ork might do to a Transformer.

Anyone want to come up a name for this Gundam than Looted Gundam? Maybe Orc Gundam?

I did this but I used one of the chibi models based on this type( http://i.imgur.com/tQ7r0l.png ) and I cut out the 'eyeslit' so you could see the grot driver inside. I should've documented the process.

probably something along the lines of Deff-knight or kustom deffdread
orks in 40k are not very creative in there names they tend to just name them after what they do, what they are, and there size, while trying to shove the letter k in wherever they can.

Huhh... Needs more Dakka

Ya sneaky zoggin' git, ya beatz me to it! Probly needz more nailz too.

If someone brought a model like this to a Tabletop game, i'd let him play it! Looks great.

That's awesome! Do you have any pictures?

Pity it's not based on the Strike Freedom. It could've been called the Beamspamma.

Gundork is the obvious and best choice.

Yea but it was a while ago. I'll try and take some new ones and up them up on fokti or something.

Not enough red won't go fast to defeat Ultrasmurf scum

I always love it when players field kustom/looted Deff Dreds, Killa Kanz and Stompas.

Honestly I'm of the opinion that it's you're not kustomizing the crap your of your Ork models you just aren't playing correctly.

If it looks the same as everything else. It ain't orky. That's right. No ork does things "By the books" I am not sure Orks even have books at all.

It just occurred to me that W40k would probably work rather well as an anime...

Or an anime about people playing the game YiGiOh style (possibly with holograms). I've taken many a Gundam bit and stuck them to Crisis suits, but I've never taken a whole converted Gundam to the field... Except for one tourney which was a day after the new GK codex's release. I spraypainted a Wing Zero silver and hot glued it to a base with a Grey Knight Termie standing between it's legs.

Warboss: "Wot ee need dem hands forz anyway? cut em off n put sum big spinny blades instead, oy also make da ead mor orky!"
Ork Mek: "Gotsit boss, we'll make it real orky for yas"

Holy poop, the Mr Potato Head conversion he did turned out incredibly well, much better than I expected as I clicked the link!

Yeah...those kits that come already orkified, so that everyone has the same orkifications on their models...bleh. Take a basic model and stick stuff on at random.

Looted Gundam is pretty cool, but the modeler's Mr. Potato Head stompa is a thing of sheer brilliance.

All these custom modals are pretty metal: the Mr. Potato head is probably that looks the most 'in character,' but all of them are mighty cool looking. Good find!

Is this enough for ya?

That's probably going to be the end result of whoever's on the business end of that dakka.

That's it! Now I'm off to buy 3 different toy trucks and convert them into trukks. Those all look absolutely amazing, especially the Mr. PotaStompa.

Orks tend to refer to "Guns" as "Dakka", so how about the Dakkadam?

Iz you Gork and/or Mork?

If da ansa ta dis kweschun iz no, den youz aint got enuff dakka.

See, this is why I love Orks. All of this ridiculous crap and it's still totally in character for them. They're an excuse to go nuts. Also, any race who's tech works out of sheer bloody mindedness is alright in my book.
