Waaagh!!! When it comes to Orcs and Orks, bigger is always better, and this offering from Kromlech doesn’t disappoint. Today we are reviewing the absolutely huge Orc Warchief in Juggernaut Mecha-Armour, a hulking Orc which looks like it will make an excellent alternative Ork Warboss in Mega Armour for Warhammer 40k players.
The Orc Warchief in Juggernaut Mecha-Armour is priced at £23.17 ($38.53) from Kromlech and consists of 19 highly detailed parts, which when assembled create a massive and mean leader for your Orc/Ork force.
Lets take a closer look at what you get in this kit. First up is the torso, it’s absolutely covered in thick armour plates, rivets, bolts, cables, and engine details. This, along with all of the other parts we received are very well cast, we didn’t come across any bubbles or other issues at all and only a very small amount of cleaning up was needed.
Just as impressively detailed (and massive!) are the legs that come with this kit. There are 3 pairs of holes where additional armour plates will be placed during assembly.
The arms are also massively armoured, the right arm ends in a socket for a large close combat weapon, while the left arm houses a fearsome double barrelled machine gun. There’s also a socket on the left arm where you can slot even more dakka into place. Looking at the other side of the arms we can see that they include ball joints in the shoulders which should give us some posing options when assembling this gigantic Ork.
Here are some of the smaller parts that come with this kit. The 3 right-most pieces are options that slot into the left arm, while the small part to the left will be added to the body. In the second photo you can see the brutal-looking pointing Power Klaw.
3 different head options come in this kit, 2 are bare Ork heads with bionic eyes and huge maws, while the other is fully enclosed with heavy armour plates in an Orky style.
In the following photo you can see the highly detailed trophy pole and a selection of armour plates that can be added to this models legs.
Lastly we have the 40mm scenic base that comes with the kit, its very nicely cast with some tiny details including nuts and bolts.
Now that we’ve had a good look at all the parts, lets assemble this beast. We’ll start with the legs and base, adding some glue to the feet and lining them up with the space on the scenic base.
…Just before we go any further, check out how big this Ork is going to be, just his legs are bigger than a Warhammer 40k Space Marine!
This is a good time to attach some of the armour plates to legs, there are several you can choose from.
Here’s the left arm, plus the optional rokkit, flame thrower, or just an end cap. We’ve decided to go with the rokkit, but it’d be nice to drop a small magnet in here so that you can swap these options around as needed.
Just one option for the right arm, this massive power klaw. Whoever it’s pointing at is in BIG trouble.
Here we’ve got the torso, the trophy pole and the small cover to fit on an exhaust pipe. The second picture shows where to attach the exhaust cover, while the third adds the trophy pole into the socket on top.
This kit comes with 3 head options as mentioned earlier. We’ve picked one of the bare heads for our build, which fits very nicely into the space on top of the torso.
Now all the main parts are assembled we can pull them together to finish this behemoth. We started by attaching the torso on top of the legs, and then lastly we attached the arms…
….Woah, what a beast this thing is, here are some photos from other angles to show off all the details. We’ll definitely be able to use this as a mega armoured Warboss in our Warhammer 40k Ork army, or even as a Ghazkul Mag Uruk Thraka alternative.
Here is a shot of the Warboss next to a Warhammer 40k Space Marine for scale. Wow, a super human in power armour never looked so puny.
Lastly, to really show off how big this is, here is our new Warboss next to a Warhammer 40k Dreadnought for scale. IT’S BIGGER THAN A DREADNOUGHT!
We think the Orc Warchief in Juggernaut Mecha-Armour is a very impressive and mean-looking miniature, sure to strike fear into your enemies! It’s not a cheap option for a leader for your Orcs/Orks, but he’s a similar price to Ghazkul Mag Uruk Thraka from Games Workshop, so if you’re looking at an alternative, this is well worth considering. The model is absolutely covered in detail, so you could really go to town on it if you enjoy the painting side of the hobby. If you want the biggest and baddest green skin to lead your boyz into battle, then look no further. To see what else Kromlech have to offer, head over to http://www.kromlech.eu/
