Mad Max 1: The Road Warriors

Gorkamorka was always my favourite game back in the day, and I have been hoarding some bits from my eBay buying and selling.

A project I have wanted to do since I was a kid is create a Mad Max-themed Digga mob. In the Warhammer 40k world, Diggas are the humans that were stranded on Angelis when the Orks crashed on the planet. With their ship destroyed, they became a tribal society living in abandoned Necron tunnels and imitating the orks, who were more suited for the desert world. With the new Mad Max film coming out this year, I thought it would be fun to do.

The pieces I have collected for the project are:

A variety of trukks, trakks and bikes to choose from. Will probably go with three bikes a trukk and a trakk.

Warhammer Fantasy Chaos Mauraders

Imperial Guard Catachans

Actual Digga models

40k Chaos Cultists
Ork driver bits

And this chap from LOTR that I thought could be a good Shaman with his “findin’ rod”
These guys are going to be a bit bigger and tougher than usual Diggas. I might use the Digga models as yoofs. The Catachans and Mauraders can be chopped up and spliced together, and I think I might even use the Cultists as they are, with their chaos symbols filed off. Anyway, first step is to give them a Detol bath and strip the paint.


  1. You and me both, mate. I've already begun! I'll post a link when I get some stuff up.
