Posted on Jan 16 2013 at 10:48:48 PM in Visual Arts
This paper model is a Snakebites Gunwagen, based on the game Warhammer 40K, the papercraft was created by Patoroch. The Snakebites are a well-known tribe or “Klan” of Orks. The Snakebites are considered to be a backward tribe by many of the more technologically-advanced tribes of Orks, for they still follow the old ways of the Ork race and often remain Feral Orks even after they gain access to more advanced technology.
As a result of their rugged lifestyle, the Snakebites are usually weather-beaten and as tough as an old boot. They are experts in the field of breeding Orkoid creatures and their Grots and Squigs are the fiercest among all the Greenskin tribes. The Snakebites clan’s name and emblem comes from a tribal rite of passage that requires the young aspirant to full membership in the tribe to goad an extremely poisonous serpent into biting him, then sucking out the venom to prove his resilience. Orks of the Snakebites Klan thus build up a powerful immunity to natural poisons and keep various species of snakes and toxarachnids as pets. They always carry a selection of venomous beasts with them when they migrate to a new world in case the local varieties of snake prove disappointingly benign.
Snakebite Runtherds breed large numbers of Gretchin, who come in very handy when feeding the larger creatures in the infamously toxic Snakebites menageries. In times of war, the Grots are given crude weapons and herded into battle, often manning the batteries of Big Gunz and accompanying the tribe’s Weirdboyz. When the Snakebites launch an assault, it is with shocking ferocity as the enemy is buried under an avalanche of battle-crazed Orks, vicious Squigs and stabbing Gretchin.
