I just noticed http://www.specialis...icChristian.pdf and saw that it contained a krawla... Are the krawlas a new concept which was invented by us? Or did they exists before medusa?

That Krawla was over on Epicoms a long time ago. Most new WarMachine concepts start out in Epic scale ;)

I thought we invented the krawla. Well, I'd like to think they took some inspiration from us.

Krawlaz hav been around a long time in Epic40K. I think Jimbo's was the first I saw, and that was years ago.

We invented the Mega Krawler. "Crawler" as a vehicle type has been around since the earliest days of Rogue Trader!

Still, this one is pretty close to how I imagined them. Maybe a bit small.... :thumbs

I think these are some of the entries into a design contest they ran. Supposedly the kontest started in early summer, around the time Medusa was getting going. So I'm pretty sure that that was indeed inspired by our plot-line here

The Krawler gargant has been around since Armageddon. I know for certain it was in the expermental Orkemedies Gargant Bigmob Epic list way before Medusa.

Here's a quite from Dakka Dakka right when we were planning for Medusa V:

The LAND-TRAIN idea is the best thing I've heard of in this thread so far! We all know that Armour-geddem introduced the Giant Submersible which transported tens of thousands of Orks under the sea and then, with the introduction of Epic Armageddon, the subs sprouted legs and carried troops over land - becoming the Krawler Gargant!!!

I reckon we should run with this....

Krawlers are giant Ork land transports capable of carrying entire warbands and their associated wheelz and big gunz. They are bigger than landaz and are proppelled using legs, wheelz or anything that grants giant and unweildy movement. Essentially, they don't look like anything in particular so the land train could really constitute one of these with very little hassle.

GW wants ALL the orks on Mudooza to be connected with Nazdreg (in some way). So consider MANY of these giant transports lumbering over the surface of Mudooza and converging finally on Da Rok, laden with loot and scrap and reinforcements. This would explain the sporadic deployment of the Orks all over Mudooza's surface - it was planned from the beginning.

Nazdreg has the teeth for such an operation! :cheers


So yeah, the Krawla was an idea we took from GW and used.
