Gorkamorka kannons (shotguns) in the wild

Filed under: Modelling


Now for a bit of a change of pace. In Gorkamorka, unlike Warhammer 40,000, Orks can be armed with kannons. These are not the artillery weapons many of you know of from recent years but rather are chunky Orky shotguns. With the change in scale since Gorkamorka a lot has changed and it’s difficult to get hold of some weapons. Conveniently Ramshackle games sell four kinds of shotgun arms that might, just maybe, be suitable for use on modern Orks.

So here’s three of those designs, sculpted by our own Flamekebab with additional work (and the arms themselves) by Curtis Fell.

The first is a standard pump-action design that some of you might remember Flamekebab sculpting and attempting to cast a long time ago. Then there’s a single barrelled weapon, as many cheap kannons are and lastly a drum magazine one based on the Striker. There’s also a Kromlech Orc War II head in there, as some of you may have noticed.


Models painted by Flamekebab and Midnight.

The fourth design is a double-barrelled shotgun as seen below, assembled and painted by sho3box.


If you want a better look at them in isolation, unpainted take a look here.

Oh yeah, where to buy them?

    Very nice Boyz, and I for one loved the Kannon. These look great and a good use of them as well.

    Thanks for sharing.

    About 2 minutes after I saw this I had already ordered 3 sets. *grins*

    I’d feel bad about advertising them but I don’t make a penny on them. I sculpted them so we could all have kannons!
