Ork Morkanaut

Ork Morkanaut

I wasn’t expecting to see new Ork stuff so soon, or has it been longer than I think since we last saw new Ork releases.

The new Ork Morkanaut certainly is a nice new design, that I quite like.

Ork Morkanaut

Personally built and piloted by an Ork Mekboy, the Morkanaut possesses all the lethal kunnin’ of Mork. Packed with glowy gubbinz from the Mek’s own workshop these mighty engines exist purely to cause carnage.

The Morkanaut’s main weapon is a profusion of worky gubbinz and zappy bits known as the kustom mega-kannon. It is also armed with two twin-linked big shootas, two rokkit launchas, a kustom mega-blasta and the Klaw of Gork (or possibly Mork).

Will I get one? Well I might once my Stompa eventually gets finished.

ALIENS in Lego

Lego seems to be having something of a renaissance over the last few years, or is it just that the internet allows for many more people to share their creations.

I was impressed with these creations of scenes from ALIENS in Lego.

Lots of clever details and certainly the models look the part.

Remove the camera shake from Star Trek, and what do you get…

June 4th, 2014

Those who know a thing or two about Star Trek will know that when the Enterprise is attacked with disrupter fire from the Klingons (or the Romulans) the bridge shakes. The method they used on the sets, was to shake the camera and the actors would then simultaneously throw themselves across the bridge.

Of course with modern image stablisation techniques available to anyone, we can now remove the camera shake and this is what you get…

Amusing, though this one from the original series is even funnier.

TOS

Much better…

May 3rd, 2014

I really didn’t like the new Taurox Prime from Citadel, however I do think the Astra Militarum Wyvern is a much better designed model.

Astra Militarum Wyvern

The Wyvern Suppression Tank exchanges the Hydra’s anti-aircraft autocannons for a pair of twin-linked stormshard mortars. The tank excels in the claustrophobic environment of urban warfare, raining curtains of shrapnel down upon enemy infantry with ever exposing itself to harm.

This plastic kit can be assembled as either a Hydra or a Wyvern with 2 crewmen: a gunner and a spotter and has the option to equip a heavy bolter or a heavy flamer.

In many ways better than the Hydra, which you can also construct from the same box. Possibly a little tall, but that’s probably the only thing I don’t like.

Really don’t like it…

Taurox Prime

The Taurox Prime is a robust infantry assault vehicle. It is heavily armoured with thick plates and is equipped with an array of heavy weapons to support the Scions on the battlefield.

Is it just me, or does the design of this model just look wrong?

The Taurox Prime is a new model from Games Workshop, and I really don’t like it. I think it’s too tall and the tracked “wheels” fail to work for me.

What are your thoughts?
