Warhammer 40K – Waaagh! Sophie (part II)

Here are two more banners for Waagh! Sophie.  These are for the two HQ choices of the Waagh!, both Big Meks.

I chose Big Meks as both HQ selections for two reasons – the first is because Big Meks allow you to take Dreadnaughts as Troop selections.  The second is because I really wanted Waagh!  Sophie not to be a big Ork horde army.  I anticipate it going up against the Unsung, and Horde vs Horde makes for long and tedious games.  Besides, Ork horde armies have been done to death and I wanted Waagh!  Sophie to be different.  She has a Freebooters unit of Flash Gitz that she loves, and I wanted to make that a centerpiece of the army, so I wanted to save a spot for that Heavy Support unit.  Taking Big Meks and getting the Dreads as troop choices allows me to make Waagh! Sophie into more of a heavy support army and less of a horde army.

Anyway, to the banners!

bigmek banner 1 draftThis is the back banner for the first of my Big Meks.  He’s an outcast from the Blood Axes (eventually I am going to add some camo patterning to the figure).  The glyphs say “Infinite Dakka!”  “Loads of Cannons!”  “Infinite destruction!”  “Lots of ammo”  “Shokk Attack Gun”  “Boss Mek”  “Mercenary for hire – many teef!”

When I figure out a name for the character I will put it in smaller glyphs on the two wrenches.

Bigmek Banner 2draftThis is the back banner for my other Big Mek – Gogduruk Mortuff (“Ancient Feral Godlike Defense”).  Formerly a member of the Snakebites, his bit specialty is protection, defense, armor, and vehicles (no wonder he got kicked out!).  The glyphs at the top translate to “Outcast feral mek boss and warband for hire.”  Glyphs down either side show services available (armor, custom forcefields, grots, boars, building, cybernetics, toughening, speed improvement).

One thought on “Warhammer 40K – Waaagh! Sophie (part II)

  1. I love the banners!

    As for the Flashgitz, let’s face it: what I’ve always wanted to do with them was play in something more RPG-like. Some day I’ll figure out a way!
