Wh40K: Stay On Target by StugMeister Wh40K: Stay On Target by StugMeister
Imperial Fighter Bombers make a desperate attack on the Ork Gargant Deth Smasha during the battle for Bismark Pass. Although the aircraft failed to destroy the Gargant, they did succeed in damaging its steering mechanism, thus allowing the Imperial Knights to encircle and knock it out later in the battle.

I'm quite pleased with how this pic came out, although I think I might've over-done it slightly with the highlights. More textures would have improved it too...

Total time about 2hrs max.

I think it used to be called the gut kannon or something like that.

I'm just making a Ork joke. Also i think it's a Bit unfair that you Can buy Reaver,Warhounds and Even Warlord Titans. But No Gargants? Forgeworld should sell Gargants. Along with the Supa Stompa.

Agreed. They'd make great gargants! All of their Orky stuff is pretty cool.

'Nother Fing. More Stompa Variations. I see the Stompa as the Ork Veriso of a knight. And look at how many knights there Are! So we need morse Stompas.

this pic really helps me to appreciate the badassness of the old style gargants. I used to think they were just goofy, but seeing them from the perspective of someone who its the same scale as they are I can really see how intimidating and powerful they look. Thank you for expanding my understanding of this part of orkyness.

It kind or reminds me of the Death Egg from the old sonic games.(fond childhood memories.) Its probably the size, round shape, big open eyes, and visible damaged bits on a massive hull that seem to do nothing to hamper its functioning.

The Gargant Deth Smasha (thought Ork interpretation was "Deff") looks a little too "clean" IMHO. Other than that, it's a great pic.

Agreed - if I were to go back to the pic I'd probably add a lot more in the way of texture and battle damage.
