Yes puny ummies, tremble in fear at the awesome might that is da Gorka'Zord!
My custom built Gorkanaught.
A little back story.
So I got a colorful group of Killakans and Grots I lovingly call the Power Gretchen. They were painted by my brother to match the Gen 1 Power Rangers. If you arnt quite sure who they are, see this: https://youtu.be/FpcCoW5gA7w
Me and my brothers watched it all the time back in our kid years.
So each Grot has a color matched Kan to go with him and act as Zords.
For the longest time I dreamed that one day I'd model something to act as the combined "Megazord" of the killa kans. But at the time, the only giant walker that the orks had was the stompa. And there was no way I'd be able to model something that big.
So I waited.
Then this new unit the Gorkanaught came around.
Fast forward to this last May. A friend of mine decided to throw an online building challenge. Themed after the old game Gorka Morka, he pitched the idea that a bunch of us should try to custom build and paint an ork vehicle in one month. Naturally I was in.
I thought long and hard about what to build, and initially I was just gonna make a looted tank (because I didn't have one yet) but before I did I noticed my little Power Gretchen on display on the corner. And after that it all became clear. I was gonna fulfill a dream of mine, and create the Megazord varient of my Power Gretchen.
I would create a giant walker (that counts as a Gorkanaught) out of Killakans and paint it just like the Megazord. It would match both the Power Ranger theme and be orky AF at the same time!
And thus, the Gorka'Zord was born. Painstakingly crafted over the whole month of May, this guy was built as one giant labor of love. Many days of custom building, sending away for a base, and painting to honor it's Power Ranger heritage.
