    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?

    alright well I didnt really want to get too 40k Orkish but this thing will be a bit more ramshackle when finished but I just want to play with shapes for now, its gonna have plenty of checkers though. Wolf, he needs some shoulder dakka but looking rather proppa right now.
