It’s been sometime. Morshak’s been at the shop tinkering…
Morshak Nutmek looked out the window of his mek shop, as thoughtfully as a chief mekboy could be. “Da Mega Armour projekt fer da Boss has all gone ta bitz” he said to himself, loud enough for his grot oilers to hear. They took that as a warning sign to back off. Boss Sekun Anda would not be pleased with his failure. The Plundaboyz had failed to get him ‘da worky bitz’ that he thought he needed to get the project going.
He turned around and looked at the mek shop that had been his pride and joy. His beady red eyes locked onto the grabbin’ klaw he used to hoist the mega armour. “If only der wuz a way ta work fasta and more kunnin’!”. The Mek Shop is more than adequate a place to work, but Morshak had to divide time between play (‘tinkerin’ wif gubbinz’) and play (‘watchin da umies do da burny dance’), and the mega armour project was delayed as a result. “Hrmm…” Morshak scratched his wide chin as he looked more intently at the grabbin’ klaw. “Wot if I brought da tinkerin’ to da burny dance?”.
Morshak Nutmek spent the next hour working on his new project.
I previously said that there felt like something was missing from Morshak Nutmek. I realize it must have been good taste. So I decided to start back from scratch, but didn’t know where to go until after I got my Battlewagon kit. After chucking the Grabbin’ Klaw aside as something I wouldn’t use at all for the Wagon, I decided that Morshak would find use for it. And he has.
I took out the back of the Big Mek (Nutmek from now on) and both arms. I GSed the Mek apron and hammer. I glued on shoulder pads and the Grabbin Klaw to a burna tank. I drilled a hole in the burna bit so that I could switch between burna and power klaw
Right Side shot
I stuck on the grabbin’ klaw controller arm, and glued on a burna piping and wire to connect it to the burna tank
I wanted the KFF to be a module, so I drilled some holes and added copper wires for strength. The KFF used to be the burna Nutmek used (in the before pic). The ball and dish were reused.
Back Shot without KFF
Like I said, modular. I hope to be able to make other wargear to replace the KFF, but since I have a SAG Mek already, it’s not a priority.
Left Side shot
The Wrench, from the Loota/Burna sprue. In the top left is a small tank connected to the burna. You can never have too much squig oil!
I wanted to make a mug like the Big Mek in the Ork Codex. I don’t have GS skills, so I cut off the goggles (and half a face) of a burna boy head and swapped with the mek’s googly eyes
Power Klaw Shot
Here’s the Power Klaw replacement.
