Which vehicles am I supposed to use?Filed under: General
A question that comes up time and again when wargamers are looking to get into Gorkamorka is this one:
Do I need to use the original trukk model or is the new “Ork Wartrukk” model okay?
The answer is really simple:
All models are fine.
It doesn’t matter if it’s the old trukk, the new one, or a piece of toast with a wheel at each corner. Smaller vehicles are easier to manoeuvre around the board and big ones offer more space for passengers.
In fact, on pages 46 and 47 of Da Uvver Book this picture can be seen:
“Some of the Games Workshop staff’s Gorkamorka mobs in all their glory. If you look closely at the models in this photo, you’ll notice many vehicle conversions and wacky paint schemes which might give you inspiration when you build your own mob.”
They’re all perfectly legal for play, whatever they’re made of.
As you’ve probably guessed by now – GoMo is not a very prescriptive game. It’s a WYSIWYG game (“What You See Is What You Get”) – warriors have to be modelled with their weapons and equipment, the same with vehicles. As long as the vehicle looks about right you’re good to go!
(It might be worth noting that movement speed doesn’t scale. A big trukk still moves six inches on gas engines just like a small one. As a result small vehicles will seem faster.)
