Ork Clans - Bad Moons Grot Tanks - Big Gunz: Kannon / Lobba
















Set of 3 Grot tanks used as Kannons or Lobbas.  The treads were made from $1 matchbox tractors, and bulked up with plasticard.  The barrels and hulls were made from pen caps with some bits and plasticard.  I used yellow Krylon Fusion paint with several washes of brown and black to get that dingy lived in feeling.  The same technique was used on my killa kans which are not yet finished.

These are a great cheap unit, and one of the best Ork anti-tank options next to the power klaw. Total cost around $6.

Have you built anything for the Slaver to ride in or be placed in?

Well, I normally run this squad fairly cheap. 3 Kannons, which include krew of 6, and 3 ammo grots, for a total of 69 points, nice and cheap. If I threw in a Slaver (Grotherder) for another 10pts, it would make sense to add a few to the krew as well (additional 6, 18pts). This would bring the total close to 100pts.

Sidetracked a bit, so to answer the question, no I have not. I could see a mechanized slaver, with possible tank treads for legs and typical Ork torso. Would like to start this, but I am trying to finish painting a few more projects before I dive back into modeling. Thanks for the idea.

They look fantastic and add a metric ton to your army in terms of feel and theme.
