Painted Shokkjump Dragsta

Here is a Shokkjump Dragsta, another part of the Kult of Speed I’m slowly creating for Orks in Warhammer 40K. First, a little background. In the lore (and rules, of course) of 40K, the Orks are experts at forcefields and teleportation technology. They have long had a weapon called a Shokk Attack Gun which works by teleporting critters inside of armour, tanks etc. So the Shokkjump Dragsta is basically a Formula 1 car with a built in teleporter that randomly causes it to blink across the battlefield. To say that it’s entertaining is a bit of an understatement.

I kept the general painting style of the Shokkjump Dragsta the same as the other buggies, so mainly blue on the chassis with some white sections for contrast. In that sense it’s a classic Death Skulls colour-scheme, though that’s just a coincidence; I just felt like painting these blue.

The driver and crew are a bit of different aesthetic from the hillbilly style of the previous two buggies; they look like proper racing car drivers and I deliberately gave them matching costumes to make it seem more like the uniform of a team.

Next on the painting table: Okoye.

  1. Love it – this is my favourite one so far, just wonderfully bonkers & Orky!

  2. Another very nice one, excellent. 🙂

  3. The Shokk Attack Gun is one of my all time favourite Orky ideas, and making a car version is just too silly not to love. Great work on this!

  4. Love the racing orcs but managed to resist them so far 🙂 yours look very cool though.

    • Thanks very much. The Wacky Races side of Orks has always been more fun to me than the swarm of 80s football hooligans. I’m really happy that the models exist again (in a different form of course) after having been limited to Epic for years.

  5. Great job on this one! I didn’t pay much attention to these when they came out but it is great fun watching you paint them up. Such cool sculpts!

    • Thank you. I think that this little blogging community is great for being able to vicariously enjoy other people’s hobby journeys.
