That is just amazing. I can't wait to see it finished.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

That is awesome.

Keep up the great work.

I believe I asked already, but do you have a ruleset for it?

Same about the rules, how does it play? Oh, and again, it's freakin' awe-inspiring. As to the plates, you need either more or less, it's a little uneven now. And because these are orks, read "more or less" as "more."

Good luck with the rest of this!

The legs are from a DreamForge BlackWidow Tank. They were discountinued long ago.

I did have a datasheet made up for it but it was using the old ork codex and some VDR rules. Now that we have APOC I have not redone the rules yet. Which will make it cheaper points wise but add way more firepower to it but it will still be around 1500 to 1700 points just for this model.

I will be updating the datafax once it is getting painted. Then it is rematch between my friends 2000 point ork army versus my iron squiggoth.

Should have another update by friday or saturday.

Very good buy, man. How could anyone say no to that?
I agree about the plates, too. More, and then more.

Default *Update Time*

Another week and another update as work continues on the Iron Squiggoth. While most of the work was added to the body I have started to do work on the head, legs and this week, I will be working on the feet.

I cut the leg guard off the squiggoth and added a truck bed as the new leg guard.



Detailing on the inside of the mouth


I felt like the jaws need so added pistons and hydrolics for more crushing power.


Now to add even more crushing power a pair of sentinal legs were added to add additional crushing power.

Now to work on the feet and to start riviting this monster.
Comments and suggestions always welcome.
