Orks: Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy
This multipart plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy. Notably rugged in construction for an Ork vehicle – while still bearing the ramshackle hallmarks of a machine built by Meks with more hammers than sense – the Squigbuggy is a flatbed truck with a long, wide wheelbase, which allows it to zoom over rough terrain mostly without flipping over disastrously. The flatbed itself contains a squig pen overflowing with all manner of bitey, bile and boom squigs, overseen by a grot (who, honestly, is having a pretty hard time keeping the squigs under control). A large Ork balances precariously by the pen, stuffing a squig into the heavy squig launcher he’s wrestling into position. Below the flatbed are 2 fuel tanks – not especially well protected from impact – and a set of saw blades either side, perfect for shredding tyres and enemies. In the cockpit, which is effectively just a few bits of scaffold over a steering wheel, sit the driver and another crew member. Both are covered in the bite marks, scratches and scars that come with a career in squig-wrangling, with the Ork riding shotgun leaning hard on the firing mechanism of his squig launcha. At the front, the Squigbuggy features a huge toothed maw in lieu of a grill – this is rounded off nicely by a spiky ram.
This kit comes as 61 components and is supplied with a Citadel 150mm Oval base.
