New Forgeworld Ork Meka Dread out!


Just when I thought the Ork wave from Forgeworld is over for now...here comes another one!

Forge World is sure trying it's best to push the sales of Imperial Armour 8 with awesome looking models in the book. Damn you FW!

Presenting...Da New Meka Dread!



Description from da Meka Dread body from Forge World :


These modified Mega Dreads replace the big shootas with multiple tool-equipped servo-arms for battlefield 'fixins'.

The Meka Dread Body is also supplied with a Big Mek pilot, holding the 'complex' Kontrol system of this unique war machine. Complete resin kit, arms shown for illustration purposes only and are sold separately. Model designed by Phil Stutcinskas, crew model designed by Mark Bedford.

Desciption of the Shunta Arm :


An outlandish experimental energy-hungry weapon, the Shunta is a compact magneto-gravitic 'traktor' gun. Similar to the Lifta-Droppa it can hurl a bubble of energy that smashes targets aside like a giant hammer. Complete resin kit for the Ork Meka Dread. Model designed by Phil Stutcinskas.

And the description of the Kil Saw Arm :


Huge saw-blade arms are often seen on Mega Dreads. Their pilots love seeing them rip through even the strongest of armour. Compete resin kit for the Ork Mega or Meka dreads. Model designed by Phil Stutcinskas.


The body set of the Meka Dread is priced at £35.00 (~USD 51.80). The inclusion of a Big Mek pilot is sure a good bonus...  :P

Basically the legs are the same as the previous Mega Dread from Forgeworld, it's just the upper body and both hands are new. The Shunta Arm and Kil Saw Arm are priced at £18.00 (~USD 26.60) and £16.00 (~USD 23.70) respectively. The Meka Dread body and both new arms are interchangable with the previous Mega Dread and it's Kil Kannon and Rippa Klaw Arm.

I like both the newer Arms over the older ones, but the older Mega Dread does look a bit more menacing than this new one with its huge gob jaws.

So in total, to get the whole Meka Dread runnin' you need to spend £69.00 (~USD 103.60).
 

I might consider getting this in the future if it's in the new Ork codex...please let this and the Grot Tankz be in!

That thing is both scary to look at and intimidating to consider building. Much like the Stompa, it makes me feel tired just looking at it.

I'll stick to smaller stuff I reckon!

Yea it maybe time consuming and difficult to build big stuff like mega/meka dreads and stompas. Just stick to regular dreads and kanz for the time being!

Huge stuff are good only if you're able to chunk out at least 2-3 hours a day modelling and painting yer toyz...

DO YOU KNOW THAT CHRISTIANITY IS CORRECT? THE WORLD AROUND US REVEALS THAT GOD DOES EXIST, AND THE HISTORICAL EVIDENCE REVEALS THAT JESUS CHRIST REALLY DID COME TO THIS EARTH AND THERE IS OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE THAT HE PHYSCALLY ROSE FROM THE DEAD.
JESUS IS COMING AGAIN AND THE SIGNS OF THE END TIMES THAT WERE FORETOLD IN THE BIBLE ARE COMMING TO PASS, AND THAT ISLAM IS THE ANTICHRIST SYSTEM!
