Ok, so I'm looking online at the GW website and there's the new Ork Stompa. I guess it's cool looking but where are the stats for the thing? Is there going to be another Orks Codex comming out soon?
Anyways I guess it's OK looking. I think it looks kinda like it's wearing a dress though. Hopefully Forgeworld will come out with a cooler version like they sometimes do. Like for instance the GreyKnight dread's.
*sigh* It's from the Apocalypse rulebook... Forgeworld probably won't make a model of this I would imagine... it looks like that because that's how they traditionally are made to look. *sigh*
Way to contribute, get over yourself dude.
To answer the OP's question, the Stompa's rules are found in the Apocalypse book and FW isn't going to be putting one out to ==My== knowledge. If you aren't a fan of the Stompa as-is, convert one to your own liking, that's the Orky way after all.
One: You'll pay through the nose for it.
Two: Half the bits will be moderately to seriously warped.
Three: One major component (such as a leg or the head) will be missing.
Four: One tiny, yet vital, component will either be missing or broken and you won't realise (despite checking the entire contents of the box against the list of parts eight times as soon as you got it) until you're halfway through making the damn thing.
Five: When the replacement part finally arrives from FW, it will be broken and you'll end up sending it back and recieving broken replacement parts about five times before you finally realise you've paid the same amount in postage for one tiny part as you did for the kit in the first place.
And before anyone says anything about FW kits being "for experienced modellers" or "that'd never happen", I'd like to say the kits ain't cheap, all the above things have happened to both me and my friend (and we weren't ordering massive superheavies either), I AM an experienced modeller and I have NEVER experienced (or heard of) any of the above problems with a resin kit from another manufacturer. They make nice models, but.........
If green power armour is good enough for the Fallen One, then its good enough for the rest of us...
Any weapons it doesn't come with you can just make yourself, like proppa Orks
Make one yourself, have more fun, spend less, nobody else will have one like it (unlike the kit) and its the way a real ork would do it (alternatively discard the manual for the kit upon opening the box as any good mek knows how these things go together good and proppa!)
Homemade ones are only finished when you think its finished and only require enough money/time/effort as you see fit.
