WAAAGH! Gar 'Un Mek-Klaw is a Bloodaxe warband of immense size (easily 5k) that focuses on armoured assaults backed up by incredible amounts of boom and dakka.
 
Waaagh! Mek-Klaw is split into four separate factions, Kommanda Mek-Klaw's Troopa Boyz, Big Mek Grimgobz Metal Fist Tank Boyz, Kournal Killgorez Speedy-Boyz & Kaptin' Wartsnaggaz Grot Guard.
 
Kommanda Kek-Klaw's Troopa Boyz:
 
Led by the boss himself these boyz are the biggest and 'ardest in the Waaagh! Currently i have 30 Nobz WIP x2 squads of 20 shootaboyz and a x20 squad of 'ardboyz plus a squad of tankbustas, x2 squads of 10 Kommandos and a few Mek and Painboyz + Bigmek & painboss, i'll update this as i get more finished but here's a few photos so far:

First Shootaboyz test sample, not a great picture to be honest but he's a good indicator of the armies theme, khaki with red and white decals (the 'arder the lad the more red and white decals they get)
 
TANKBUSTAZ.jpg
 
I can actually field a full contingent of 15 tank bustaz (all converted because i don't like the GW sculpts) but i usually stick to 10 when i bring the Kill-Bursta tank so they can ride along, take down void fields and mop up heavy infantry.

One of the two Kommando Nobz leading my two kommando mobz, always outflanking.

Da Skull'amma Battle Tank, the boss' personal ride along with up to three squads of Nobz, still very much WIP and will be for a while as i'm working on my infantry atm.
 
Mek-Boss Grimgobz Metal Fist Tank Boyz:
 
Da Brainz of Waaagh Mek-Klaw, Grimgob maintains a fleet of tanks and guns to rival any of the 'umie armies, as well as a Kill-Bursta the Mekboy can also bring two Junkas, five Looted Tanks, Buggy squads, two squads of Grot Tanks a Lifta-Droppa wagon.

"Da ladz" including Grimgob himself, Da Metal Fist Tank Boyz are known for the prestigious number of Mekboyz in their ranks.

Awesome stuff, I like the paint work! Fantastic! That lifta droppa looks cool, liking the large turret for a kinda top heavy look!
If I break it, I'll fix it.

I really enjoy those small grot tanks!  And your work on those vehicle conversions is impressive!  Oh, and the Tank busta nob...he's fun :)

I would like to see larger pictures of the tanks. From the small pics we can tell they are awesome, but not how awesome they really are. 640 or 800 or 1000 pixels wide is fine for the forum to handle these days. If you are nervous about mobile users or posting too many pictures, just hide them behind spoiler tags (like I and some others do.)

 

Code for spoiler is like below, but with brackets [ ] instead of parenthesis ( )

It ends up looking like this, with the summary added manually to tease people to check it out

the ww I style buggies are my favourite-


In the end, it was the Sunday afternoons he couldn't cope with, and that terrible listlessness which starts to set in at about 2:55, when you know that you've had all the baths you can usefully have that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the papers you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o'clock, and you will enter the long dark teatime of the soul.

Just a quick pic of the first few Grot Guard models, my camera is awful and at the moment by the time i'm getting home in the evening from work the sun has already set making my camera even worse, i will persevere though and get you more pics when i can.

Oh, a close up of Mek-Boss Morg Grimgob, may go back and paint some of the teeth on his gob red/white eventually.

I adore Mek Grimgob. I had to look twice to identify the meganob base you've done so much work on him. I don't know that the model needs any more checks, although I guess according to the back story he should probably have them

Ha!  Those are fantastic meks!   I got lazy during an apocalypse game in which I took like 15 meks (for my Stompas!)  and ended up slaping lego wrenches onto boyz.  My friends allowed it, but these...wow.  I've got some work to do!

Oh man, I've wanted to get one of these and convert it since I first saw them. This is SCREAMING conversion.  You've done a great job here.

The conversions and builds are very nice, but I am most impressed with your painting - really nice work on subtle, effective highlights!
