Warhammer: Evil Sunz Ork Ship by mikkow Warhammer: Evil Sunz Ork Ship by mikkow
A commission for Sabertooth Games' Warhammer 40,000 Collectible Card Game "Dark Millenium".

An Evil Sunz Slamblaster class battleship called "Da Instigata". All these ork names are very hip-hop/rap, or even hax0r sounding. :lol: Looks rather ghetto.

Photoshop PS, and Painter IX for the planet surface. 6-11 hours somewhere. Again.

Don't know what Warhammer 40,000 is about? Check out this [link] introductionary article, it's a fascinating read.

Copyright 2006 Games Workshop.

EDIT: Accidently edited this text instead of copy/paste and edit for the new ship! Doh. No changes to be fund here. Sho sho.

EDIT 2: Major colour correction. The old version was completely bright washed out in comparision how it should be like. :( I hope that people do see it the way it was meant to se now, finally. The messed up old version looked terrible in comparision.

"hip-hop/rap" You fucking moron...

Warhammer 40k is an english franchise and it is well known that the Orks speak with a cockney accent. This is not their in-universe "language" but rather the interpretation of their crude culture, much like how High-Gothic is translated as Latin in writings. High-Gothic is NOT Latin, but is written as such to portray its age in relation to Low-Gothic, the common language of mankind. Same thing with Ork language. See here: [link]

It disturbs me that someone is making art for this franchise while knowing so little about it. It doesnt take much reading to understand this about the Orks.

Yeah right, the Ork probably stole this stuff. The design is too imperial and too sleek for their standards. haaha
OblivionDreamer Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2007
Actually... Orks can build a lot of things if they can put their mind to it... They can even build giant Gargants, capable of leveling entire cities. and destroy all but the most experienced titan. Plus this ship goes 10 times faster than a normal imperial ship because Theyz Likes ta go Super fast!!!!

Lovely ship, very nicely done. But I think it looks a little too high tech to be made by orks... maybe they stole it... Now that I think about it it does look like a smaller ship of the Imperium, but with less fiddly bits... Nice lascannons coming out of the 'mouth'
SkullZero1 Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2008
They probobly got their some mekboyz to build it using their 'techno genes' and their natural instincts on how to build it givin to them since birth.
OblivionDreamer Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2007
The only Gits who would steal a ship would be Da Death skulls... Sneaky gits runnin' off wit all da big gunz... Buncha camp Pilferers if ya ask me!!!
Crusader1089 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You're right, a stolen ship would be impossible for an ork to fly, as the machine spirit would leave the ship as soon as it left human hands, rendering the ship useless. Thus it can only have been created by a particular meckboy, thus bring him down and the ship will fall apart.

/crazy arse warhammer physics.
Nice ship
OblivionDreamer Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2008
On another note: The machine sprit cannot leave the ship in question unless it had a vessle to be placed by a tech preist of mars... The machine sprit was probally abused and tortured beyond salvation... just to make it go faster...

Also the Chaos has abused the Machine sprit as well...
OblivionDreamer Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2007
Nope... as long as The Orks believe its working. It's gonna work... Even if you kill da 'ead Mekanik... Besides, A Billion Mekaniks Worked on this ship... Da Big Mek just Tells em wat to do based on his ORKY VISION Placed by Gork or Mork (or both if he's real lucky!!!)...
Crusader1089 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is indeed the popularized notion of the majority of the Imperium however Genetor Lukas Anzion has noted that many Ork-built machines and weapons will not function properly (or at all) unless wielded by an Orkoid
Gorkamorka visions are just a way of stopping divisions among the orks.

But who cares.... the ship looks cool. And thats what matters.
It is after all read.

SpiritKiller Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2006  Hobbyist Writer
Awesome work! But it needs to look more like scrap metal. Looks too one-piece to belong to "da Orkses". XD
TatsujinEdge Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2006

Yeah this it the first seen of a new series in the Warhammer universe called Pimp my battlecrusier (lol ugh aweful pun but i just couldn't help it :P)

I love it, it seems so Orky, just a ramshackle pile a machinery, hurtling madly towards the goal. The engine bring the image of a sucide charge and the manicle grin is total fluff. As a proud Ork player I say :salute:
