    IDW #129: Ork War-Walker

    Topic: Ork War-Walker

    Background: A more simple brief this week. A walking warmachine designed and built by Orks (or rather, Goblin made and Ork operated).

    Orks are by nature a violent and brutal race, with a knack for inventing stuff that makes a bigger dent than the last weapon. If they can't figure it out themselves they always have their cousins the Goblins to rely on for solving complicated engineering problems (such as inventing the wheel and similar handy things).

    Your task for this week is to design an Ork War-Walker that they would use to wage war against their enemies (everyone else and sometimes themselves, that is). You can opt for a fantasy and/or sci-fi version in this round, so either you design a medieval-ish walker, or a walker for Orks in a far and grim future.

    Feel free to include orcs on or in your Walker design. You can use inspriation for your Ork race from whatever mythology or fantasy/sci-fi universe you like for this round.

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw an Ork War-Walker!
    2. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Saturday, May 22
    Rounds are usually closed around noon on Sunday (GMT +2 - Amsterdam time)

    Good stuff, really hope I can manage some time for this.

    Would it be ok to use animals as part of the machinery or does it have to be completely mechanical? Goin for the medieval look I think.

    Oh what a shame. Great topic, but I'm moving in 3 weeks and have to make with the packing and cleaning... Sigh.

    Ragnj: Sure, including animals in your design is allowed As usual, try to focus on the design of the Walker itself rather than rendering the animals though.

    So does this "War Walker" have to be huge or can it be small like individual suit type walker?

    Great subject!
    Just to know if I understood it well... Walker means that this war machine must "walk" or it just needs to have a forward motion, by any ways?
    Thanks
    let´s see if i have time to participate, i´ll go with fantasy subject.

    Ricardo Robles: Yeah I think I'll draw the line at having legs for this round. So, your war machine will have to be able to walk yeh.

    Far and Grim future, you say? I've been meaning to do some 40k fanart, this seems like as good a time as any!

    My only concern at this point(aside from the rear leg)is one of dakka: Is it currently sufficient, or does this thing require additional dakka?

    Orc Walker

    My original thought was a huge mecha/transformer suit but i figured there would be a lot of people doing that, which so far they all look pretty badass! Jut an idea but i might roll with it.

    A specially made breed of orc that has mechanical features to make it "super-human." They can jump up to 20 feet and climb cliffs like ants.

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    These are little walkers that can maybe fit 9 guys, oh yeah they are missing legs at moment cos Im concentrating on other aspects for now. The shape of the cabin is kinda like a beetle with the body being some kinda back tarpooling that looks like stag beetle shell.

    All different themed:
    top left its a dragon theme, I suppose this would go at front line as it sets the scene, has a flaming tail to set buildings on fire.
    top right is decorated like a skull to make people sh*t themselves, acid drips off tongue.
    botton left is an extention of the stag beetle idea, just a bit nippy.
    botton right is another dragon but wih exposed sizes for greater orc onslaught, also has wings to drop bombs from / gluide about and stuff.
    bottom one is simly double decker action, more scope for orcs to do individual stuff, fire arrows, throw spears, lob bombs, look evil with axe etc.

    I thick Im going to do a combi one that will end up looking a bit "Where's Wally" or "Where's Waldo" if you're american.


    lkjhgfdsa - I agree with Metal Fingures

    Metal Fingures - Thats ace! I see it going a bit tank girlesc. NICE!

    It is clean and i can already imagine its movements. nice!!
    .

    lkjhgfdsa ,

    I vote for the bottom right one! I like all of them ofcourse, but the bottom right just..won me.
    You will dress it with orkish banners and stuff huh? Dont leave it like this ;d

    Metal Fingers! Awesome design! But to make it more Ork-like I would suggest stronger arms and smaller legs. Love the mecha approach!
    Here`s my first sketch.

    Aye agreed Apestar, I think I'm going to make the arms huuuuuuuge, with a big cannon on one of them. yours is shaping up nicely, awaiting some more in depth render pictures. Be sure as you get to the final image to not have to much of an extreme value range, thats something I'm still trying to work on. Contrast+edge control.
    xbert-thanks mate
    biomecha wolf-haha yea, thats kind of what I was thinking. This is all making me want to do some 40k fan art.
    Quick color test on mine, arrrghhhh not sure if I want it red, man not sure if I like the color at all, off to study tanks and cars for now and come back to this in a few. Keep it up dooooods.

    This would be a sweet topic to start the weekly challenges since I haven't yet tried one, too bad I have to leave town tomorrow midday. Maybe I'll manage to get something done before I go.

    Good designs so far..

    lkjhgfdsa I really like the one in the right lower corner, seems to have the most ork in it on my opinion

    Alien Ape Star That walker sure seems to be able to deal serious damage with that bladethingy, nice silhouette. Maybe shorten the backblade a little to give the blade more moveability?

    hi guys first time in IDW always kinda hovered around here and decided this topic sounded bad ass, well here is 3 ideas i have and one that is combined parts of the 3 i like may still play with this some more, crits comments are welcome and please pick this apart. thinking about doing something like goblins on turrets or something of the sort

    Metalfingers- love the design man going to be bad ass i think though a bunch of spikes would make it look a bit more orkish?

    Alien Ape star-like the way this is looking so far hope to see more of it

    UCT- cool concepts you going to have them on the backs of animals? top 2 are my favorite

    lkjhgfdsa-Awsome designs the top right is my fav one as well

    Apw- great idea cant wait to see more of him

    Biomecha wolf- really like the sharp edges

    John Mckenna- MORE DAKKA!!

    Got the color rough done. Do the giant chainswords count as dakka or choppy, or both?

    Dunno if I will make this deadline... but here is a little wip I started on. I cant believe how much fun this was. Looking at scrap metal, tanks, weapons, and obviously warhammer 40k. LOVE the fact that you can make scribbles look like mechanical stuff Makes my life easier

    btw Dakka:

    A word or sound a Warhammer 40k Ork says when referring to fire power, or actually firing an automatic weapon.
    Deez gunz got a lotta dakka, Boss!

    Geez I never played orcs in 40k :p Anyway here is the kaboom-wakka. It has a crew of 4 goblins, two mounted machine guns as anti-personel weapons and a main gun. The main gun can be fired only from "sitting" position. Design will be more orcish, this is just the main idea.
