wazdakka gutzmek

Back when I first collected Warhammer 40,000, I had a sizeable force of Orks. Most of them have been sold off, given away or lost over the intervening years, but I still have my conversion of Wazdakka Gutzmek. This was probably my first ever ambitious conversion; I made it at a time when I didn't even know what Green Stuff was and most of my conversions were kit-bashes using mail-order components from multiple kits. I was very proud of this conversion at the time - mainly because it meant that I could field Wazdakka in games (he was a tough customer back in 2nd edition). My favourite memory of him involved him cutting across a Leman Russ Demolisher, which in turn fired at him, missed, and was promptly destroyed as the shell scattered backwards and landed square on the Demolisher itself.

date: 1998
components: 1x Zodgrod Wortsnagga, 1x Dwarf Flame Cannon barrel, 1x classic metal Ork bike, 1x plastic Ork power claw, 1x Leman Russ smoke launcher, 1x Dwarf Flame Cannon steam whistle, 1x Dwarf Flame Cannon lever
