The two meks stood eye to eye then with a mighty waagh the sounds of engines roaring to life filled the valley and black oily smoke filled the air. Each mek presented their wagons for the community to chose which one they liked best.

Next up is MoOg's offering

Also a big thanks to MoOg for getting me back to modeling after a 4 month break. Hinch the badmoon symbol on my wagon as a nod to my fellow mek.

Couple of patches of blue in recognition of my Bloo-faced opponent :D
There's still loads I'd like to do to it, but when da kontest is over, da kontest is over!
One day I might make a Skorcha Mounting for it as the turret is removable (and it still rotates!), but not just yet.

Was a blast, so glad to have finally finished something, I really needed this kick up the backside to get it done, or it would have sat on my painting shelf for a very long time.

Best of luck buddy

Both are good but it was the unpainted hands on the driver of MoOg's that forced me to vote for morfangdakka.

Hmm they're not unpainted, just painted them grey - think they've got a bit blown out by my crappy picture taking abilities :D Oh well, I'd be the first to admit that I rushed a lot of it to get it finished, but then again if I hadn't I might not have ever finished it, so 6 of 1 half a dozen of the other I guess :)

Im gonna have to agree with Gorfrag and say that those grey hands are a real turn off for a otherwise great wagon. I can understand if he was wearing gloves but you can tell that he isn't. Despite that one little thing I am still gonna have to say that I like yours just a little bit better. The turret and boomgun is awsome, and the paintjob is really good. now go paint his hands green or I'll take it back. :biggrin

I like the way Morfangdakka used his spare Boomgun, cuz "Every Boss needz his battlewagon loaded wiv boyz!" (words of the wize Marshull Mekanik Snikmekk Grimjaw, of Da Adeptuz Morkiuz clan) Both wagunz are nice 'n proppa, but looking at da boddywurk. Morfangdakka's gubbinz on his wagon look more glued on the sides while moogs are more into the model. I like the more-a-less dodgy paint work of Moog's wagun (not looking at grey hands offcourse! cuz thatz a no-go) and the emblemz are worked in really well on both vehicles, though i do miss a few more killmarkers, checkers or other freehanded paintwurk. But seeing as this is a Big Mek Challenge, offcourse it takes true Mekaniks skillz to make a rotating gunturret. Moog's turnin' boomgun diddit fer me!

Same thing I was about to ask :)

Well, MoOg's boomgun gun is truly fantastic, but Morfangdakka's ammount of detais won my vote in the end. Anyway congratulations to both of ya!

Cheers :cheers

Waaagh! Shawass - plundering the galaxy with unpainted models since 2006 :D

Both well done and truly ramshackle! I would be proud to field either in my army. I must give the nod to Morfangdakka. The engine detail and proppa Blue color won me over. Mo0g, your offering was very well done and truly this was a close call. That Boomgun is very nice.
No, dis is no yer fing. I stole it fair and square. 'Sides, it's painted bloo now.

Ok ok, maybe the hands were rushed a little bit - I was mostly just relieved that I had paint on the model before getting the pictures in! I shall take this feedback and remember it for the next one, thanks :) It's crazy how different these things can turn out, I love all the exposed engines and gubbins on your wagon Morfang, really looks awesome.

I voted for mo0g because the turret rotates which is awsome! And I prefer the whole build 'shape'. But both are fantastic tanks! :thumbs

I love the rotating kanon and all the ingenuity on moog's wagon- it gets many points in creativity, but the general use of volumes, use of bits and paintjobsent my vote to morfang... although that kanon barrel looks a bit clean to me. be sure to throw some dirt at it or yer be akkused of being some spiffy badmoon! ;) :lol great great job ladz! :cheers Moog's spinny turret has got me full of ideas... dang you, i got characters to build, stop fillin me head wif dese thinkments! ;)

Once you made that rotating gun I knew I was in trouble as that is one of the best things I have seen in a while. THen when you started making most of it out of plasticard I really knew I had a fight on my hands. Just goes to show we are truely orky when a cool gun is liked more than a nice engine. :biggrin
