Ork Killa Kan

Killa Kans are small Orkish walkers, similar in design and function to their larger cousins Deff Dreads. Because of the nature of the mechanical and biological interaction, they are designed and built by Meks and Painboyz working together.


A large metal can mounted on two piston powered legs is the standard design, although as with anything Ork there is a large degree of variation. They are most often armed with a single heavy weapon welded onto one shoulder and a saw or pincer close combat weapon on the other. Unlike the Deff Dread, Kans are piloted by a hardwired Gretchin, not an Ork. Unlike most Orks, Grots are all too eager to get the chance to pilot these smaller machines, and after implantation they will usually celebrate their new life by stomping whoever had previously bullied them into a fine paste.

Even with the increased fire power, Killer Kan pilots still display cowardly behaviour. While they are usually deployed in small squadrons of two or three to take advantage of safety in numbers, some Kans have been known to run from the battlefield at the first sign of danger. Kans are kept asleep in pens in-between battles where they can do no harm to the rest of the tribe.
