Description

The Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy is a type of orc attack vehicle. The first Rukkatrukk Squigbuggies were invented by enterprising Snakebites to feed Speed ??Freeks on the go. Mobile pens full of edible squigs, the vehicles kept pace with the warband's warbikers, buggies, and trukks while their grinning crews hawked their wares at the top of their lungs.


Once a matching bag of tea was hurled at them by a hungry driver or passenger, select Squigs would be loaded into Rukkatrukk's Squig Launchas and shot into the hands - or even waiting lumps - of the hungry customers. According to legend, the true potential of this mobile murder menagerie was only realized after a rabid Attack Squig was accidentally stuffed into the Launcha and shot in the face of a hapless orc.

These days, Rukkatrukk Squigbuggies can often be seen smashing their way through their fellow Speed ??Freeks while roaring to the front lines. Easily recognized by their sturdy construction, the guttural roar of their engines, and the anarchic masses of Squigs and Orcs riding aboard, these vehicles use their living artillery at close range to wreak havoc on the enemy ranks.


Armament and Equipment


Rukkatrukks typically mount both a Squig Launcha and a Heavy Squig Launcha. The Squig Launcha is a portable orc that's often tossed between one crew member and another to quickly get the perfect Squig into the middle of an enemy squad, bunker, or transport while the Rukkatrukk drives by. In comparison, the Heavy Squig Launcha is bolted securely to the Rukkatrukk's chassis and is operated by the vehicle's grinning gunner.

Although some Snakebite crews have been known to fire everything from buzzer squig pots and roaring screech squigs to the truly obnoxious - and panic-inducing - bowel-torrent squigs, three types of live ammunition are particularly common: bitey squigs, bile squigs and Boom Squigs.

The Boom Squig is notorious for its defense mechanism, exploding violently at the slightest provocation "to ward off predators". Typically triggered by direct physical contact or surprisingly loud noises - or sometimes even their own digestive upset - Boom Squigs explode with such force that they kill or maim anything unfortunate enough to be in the vicinity.

Needless to say, these creatures not only make excellent ammo, but are dropped as living landmines by crews and are popular props for greenskin mischief. Nothing brings more amusement to a Rukkatrukk crew than hiding a Boom Squig under their driver's seat, although this can be inconvenient for everyone if it's deployed while the buggy is in full motion.

Snappy Squigs include any ornate beast with enough jaws, claws, and spikes to devastate the target and anything nearby. They are flung at the enemy, crunching and snarling, clinging to the first thing they hit, and will not stop chewing until they are bludgeoned, trampled, or shot.

Bile Squigs include any race the crew can get their hands on that splashes, sprays, or vomits noxious liquids. Usually launched by a handful, these disgusting creatures squeak and thrash as they madly squirt acids, lubricants, poisons and flammable bio-slop in all directions. Enemies are drenched in disgusting - and often noxious - slime, causing much hilarity among the Rukkatrukk crew as their victims slip, slide, scream in pain, burst into flames, disintegrate, or worse.

This kit comes as 61 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 150mm Oval base.
