My friend is an Orks collector and I must admit I'm a bit infatuated by the theme. There's something about the Mad-Max vibes it all gives off and I really want the Mekboy Workshop.
But I hate Orks.
What I'm interested in is alternative human armies, and wondered if anyone has examples. What I want to do is some kind of non-Imperial affiliated human faction. Perhaps based on some kind of lost world that isn't touched by the Imperium. They aren't rebels as such, they probably forgot the Imperium even existed. Perhaps it's been lost in the warp, but they're also not chaos. They're just human, and making by on scraps of old civilisation.
So I am thinking of humans in an Ork theme, using Scrapheap Challenge style vehicles, cobbled together equipment, etc.
For the actual humans themselves I am thinking a mix of some catachan bits, last chancers, maybe some comically oversized mech parts, Necromunda, and some non-gw models if necessary for different poses.
Anyway, I'm wondering how Fluffy this could be, and whether such a scenario is sensible in an obviously Imperium dominated world. And I should add this army probably won't appear anywhere other than my bookshelf so don't worry about competitive play. Will probably just consist of the scrapyard, a couple of vehicles, and a little army of peeps.
Does anyone have examples of:
- Humans riding Ork-like vehicles
- Non-Imperium human armies
- Fluff for the above?
And if such a thing doesn't exist I'd be very interested in creating some kind of inde codex for this army.
