Jimbo,

How do you recommend "Epic-izing" the old Ork dreadnought?

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

Hi all,
Tuffskull and Nealhunt are right about the coal, it is a plant deposit compacted by the pressure of deposits to form a mineral-like solid.
re fuel efficiency: oil-based fuels generally combust more efficiently and have a higher calorific value, which means you get more stomp per tonne - enginseer's word!  :angry:
I think of huge oil tanks somewhere in the depths of Gargants, fuelling great boilers driving steam engines (not rubines - way too smooth). And why not supplement them with coal burning systems as well - with gretchin stokers slaving away to fuel the burners?
I could imagine an oil system moving the entire machine, with added (probably as an afterthough during construction of the gargant) coal-fired systems for moving weapon mounts, generating extra elektrik and so on.
lots of belching smoke too, and the occasional (regular!) burst pipes etc.  :oo
A mekboy Gargant would of course have a smaller, more efficient, oil-burning kombusta engine..

Did I say I used to work in a shipyard?
cheers.

To make it more 'epicy' I'd chop those horrible legs off, and add a plastic battlewagon body from E40k on each side for the "feet", stick a suitable gargant head and a couple of weapons, give it a paint job, and there ya go!

A couple months ago, I got a Railwars starter box for the Wasatch faction from the local bargain bin.  That's the clockwork/steampunk guys.  It had 5 of the automatons (steam gargants) and 5 clockwork tarantulas (Defiler conversions) in it.  It also has 5 jumppack troops and I think the tanks on the packs will work nicely for scenery.  If it was cheap here, it might be in other bargain bins elsewhere.

If I hadn't seen the pics on links posted here, I never would have known what they were from the picture on the box.   So, thanks to those who posted the links.

I would probably add a Squiggoth turret instead of the Grot pilot.

I would add shoulder weapons (either small Battlefortress turrets or Bowelburna turrets).

I would add some ladders and rigging at the back (complete with Orks and Gretchin).

In order to make it a steam powered Gargant, I would add the 40K scale Ork Dreadnought Engine. not sure if link will work

http://www.games-workshop.com/storefr....mg=6646

but the part number is 9947010307717

but that's a start

Jimbo,

Thanks for the advice.

I like the photo of you and your family very much. You have a lovely family. I'm very happy for you.

Everyone else,

Is anyone else out there making Steam Gargants and if so, how are you doing it?

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

Found this picture on my website



If you could find one it would make a really interesting steam Gargant. Alas it is an old Citadel Limited Edition which would be hard to find.

Thanks for sharing it.

Hi!

What in blazes is that Jimbo?

Reminds me of the tin man from wizard of Oz.  :)

it's a Limited Edition from Citadel circa 1989.

It was the invention of a dwarf, a steam powered tinman.
