Ork Mega Dread
Built for the 2010 Mech Contest, in the Gigantor Galore category. You wanted never before seen, here it is! The Ork Mega Dread, a mech that seems to be the horrifying cross breed of a Killa Kan and a Stompa, with a bit of God-knows-what thrown in for good measure. Unfortunately, I don't have the patience to write the whole thing in Orkish like with the Stompa.
About this creation
Final Score: 17/20

One of the key features in an Ork vehicle is a large face with huge teeth. If the face wasn't there, it wouldn't be Orky enough to pilot (And I use that term loosely).
This is a face that screams 'Gimme Yer Lunch Money

Another key feature is the addition of more guns, even where they aren't needed or particularly useful. Honestly, what good is a pintlemounted shoota on a mech?
He just likes the sound it makes

The shoulder pads protect the rotating parts that help move the arm. And make it look bigger and scarier. For people like me, it makes the model more greebly and adds to that 600 parts count.
600 parts is easy enough to get to with even a small creation for Orks.

Clearly, the shoulder pads do not match in any major capacity. That's what happens when your vehicle is made from the hacked up remains of six junkyards though.
And of course, there's also the metric ton of assorted weapons that had to die to make that mounted shoota. We're still doing a body count for the main gun...

Nice greebly leg parts here. They're covered in pointy things and important looking wheel things to make it look like they can move. At this point, it's a miracle it can stand on it's own.
Timber!

Note the barbed wire on the feet. On most walkers, barbed wire would get caught on the legs. The Orks start out with the wire wrapped around the legs so it'll hurt more people when it walks.
Wouldn't you love to have them as neighbors?

Here's where things get interesting: The machine is equipped with a Power Claw. It may look too powerful, but it can crush infantry like graps. It's not so good with the slashing, but it's good for the bashing!
Or the smashing. Smashing's good.

*Crunch Crunch*
I should have put a fig in there...

I'm particularly proud of the legs. I feel they're nice and tough looking, while being dang near as ramshackle as possible. That's Orkiness right there.
They look like they could be kicking in buildings. Or dreadnaughts.

The upper regions aren't as nice as those legs though. I think the plates sort of blend together. Then again, that's kind of a good thing...
It's still waiting for that lunch money.

And now we reach the main gun. It's sort of like the cannon a typical tank uses, but torn out, mounted on a drum magazine, and then duct taped to a Mech. It goes boom.
Ka-Booom!

The rear isn't as detailed as the front, but it's still nice. It's actually nice and uncomplicated compared to the rest of it.
Sort of...

Assorted engine-looking parts. Imperial Anti-Armor specialists are going to have one hell of a time figuring out what's important and what isn't...
Oh noes! Dey 'it me koffee maker! Oi'm mad now!

Again, compared to the front, the backsides are glorisously uncomplicated.
I was running low on parts.

Except for the shoulder pads of course, which are nice and messy all around.
Like pie.

I still don't know what that grey piece sticking up is... Oh well.
Hey, it's gotta do something, right?

And this is the back of a leg again. Gloriously simple, and oddly clean.
Again, I ran out of parts.

He's got a surprisingly thin waist. I think it's because he doesn't get any natural oil, only the synthetic stuff.
Natural oil is actually quite fattening. Just ask the Tachikomas, it went straight to their pods.

This here's the top of it's head, where that ork was. The hatch actually can close!
He went inside to get more ammo.

An overview without the Okr. This also serves as a parting shot, so remember it well!
So long as the shot doesn't hit you, of course...

Thank you for going along with the wanderings of my commentary, I hope you enjoyed the build!

And now, I have simple request: Before you flip out on how shoddy the build looks, consider the source. With that bit of explaining out of the way, I believe I can leave you now.

Well, not quite. This is the last thing though, I swear:
Has anyone noticed the captions for the photos? I'm just curious on this note, but each photo has alternate text. Have fun!

Well, who'd knew what one could do with the content of six scrapyards and some duct tape...

Again, consider the source. Based on some Ork models, I'd say this is about average greebling ;) And thank you for choosing this one, I really think it sort of entered the spotlight, got judged, and then died.

@Mech Man: While building this, I was assuming there was at least one other crewman in there, like in a tank. However, he'd probably still accidentally take it off a cliff. Orks aren't very bright, and if stuff gets broken they're happy.

Score of Four, That Pilot looks like he would walk right of the cliff, Great Job though!

Codex Orka: When in doubt, shoot everything ork related. When in more doubt, shoot everything ork related that is the colour red or resembles a shade of red.

@Mister Bones: I completely understand. It took me over a year to get used to the Orks. Thanks for putting up with my little chaos storm and giving me such a high score! @Jake: I'm considering a knight of some form myself. I just need one of those fancy pointy visors... @Delta: Truer words have never been spoken. It's best when your shooting them with something really high caliber though, because all that scrap metal actually makes decent armor. @Brickbrain: Thank you, I'd be happy to! @Matthew: Many thanks! It was a really fun build.

Hmmm, I seem to be looking at this wrong I guess. The mech appears a bit too messy and slaped together for my taste, still, you really put some effort into this. 4 points.

I wouldn't really call 5 pts so much a "generous" score as I would a DESERVED score. In other words, you EARNED a five pointer, at least from me. Great details all around, good color use. Main gun = win. Great work

Thanks guys! @Moodswim: Messy is so very liberating... And good luck to you as well! @dudecoolperson: Hmm... Faint inducing... Interesting. @Mr. Rahkshi8000: Thank you kind sir, for the generous score! I think I've seen some mechs that could certainly qualify for it though...

Awesome greebling work, and good job on being the first one to enter a mech in the Gigantor Galore category. 5 points, though I'm not sure a Gamorrean would be smart enough to pilot a mech ;)

Thank you, you're all too kind! @Andrew: Glad to know it's recognizable! @Waffles: I think it's my largest mech to date.
