Yup, you just read right. Ork Gargant 28mm scale. Deal with it.
|Dun dun dunnnn|
I guess you need some explanation!
First of all, I haven't built it. I wish. Such an endeavour is way far beyond my skills. This is all the works of my pal Rinahe, who runs the blog El Taller de Emilque. Please do have a look at it. I really mean it.
His aim was an old school looking Gargant, like those from the old Epic ranges, or the Armorcast ones.
|Dis is da deal|
I'll just post a few pics taken from his blog, just to give you an idea of how much you need to pay him a visit.
|It all kind of started this way|
|At first this won't make much sense...|
|...until you combine it with this other piece to give shape to the belly gun...|
|...and see it's designed to fit in and look like a pinted face on the projectile|
|The level of detail is insane. The glyphs have actual meaning, BTW|
|Even the banner is 3D, to help painting it (it's DIN A4 sized!)|
|He also built a box for storage and transporting purposes (!!!)|
Seriously. Go visit the blog. Here you can find the WIP installments:
|(Did you notice he's also building 28mm Stompas?)|
No doubt he had the most fruitful lockdown of us all!
Precisely due to covidian issues we weren't able to see each other during... well, basically all 2020! Until now!
Now I'm the proud owner of a Great Gargant. Wiiiiiiii!!
Let me show a few more pics. First thing that blew my mind was the way pieces were storaged inside the box
|It's so well engineered it doesn't feel like Ork!|
Oh, I didn't mention. The box has hinges and magnets, so it's pretty safe.
|Everything has its place|
|Even the banner has a hanger|
I'm seriously tempted of recording the process of unboxing. It's a pleasure.
Here you can see both elements:
|Insanely huge. And wonderful|
|You can open the head to get access to the pilot's cabin|
|There's room for gunners around the belly gun|
|Serioulsy, remember this|
|Morkstroke it's his name (should I say her name?)|
|Have a close look|
|You can place an Armies on Parade event in here!|
|Yup, the door opens!|
|I'll take better pics or videos of the door opening and closing in the future|
|In all its glory|
|That's me in the centre, surrounded by the guys from the store where we met|
|Rinahe da Mekboy!|
I think there's one more pic needed. I really was curious about one more comparison...
|There's no way I can find room for all this at home. I'm so in trouble...|
What else can I say. I'm so truly overwhelmed! It looks like I'm going to be busy next 2021!!
