PostSubject: I want a Makari Model!!!!   Mon Apr 05, 2010 1:34 pm

Ok I have the old Makari model and its a little lame for as great as the little guy was!

And of Course Gamesworkshop goes and kills the best guy in 40K by having Ghazgkull sit on him Sad

So having said that I want a new Makari model!!!

This is not tied in with the Tournament but I want as many different Makari Models as I can get but it has to come from the masses of CAGites.

Critieria:
1) It has to be a gretchin
2) It has to be almost instantly recognizable as Makari Standard bearer to Ghazgkull.
3) Legal to use in a game of Warhammer 40K,
4) Diorama bases welcome as long as Makari is removable.


I will give a model in return for the Makari model. Best one I receive before or at the tournament on May 22nd, Will receive a really cool prize.
I will eventually display all the Makari models I receive in my living room.
So have at it let me know if anyone is even interested...

The old Makari model is now in my Avatar next to ghazkhull with the Banner!
Here is fluff I can kinda remmeber while i'm here at work and will get more on later if I can find my old codex again and the couple of books he is in that I have.
Makari was Ghaz sidekick standard bearer, and had a 2+ inv(Lucky) save even against anything that would remove him from the board... ie a Vortex grenade. To my knowledge Ghaz and Makari were the only 2 models that could walk thru a Vortex grenade and laugh because when Ghaz called his Waaagh (in 2nd edition) He could not be killed for that turn or opponents turn and Makari got the 2+ save. It was Makari that actually put in Ghaz's head that the eclipse was a sign from Gork and Mork that Ghaz should rule the galaxy...

Found on a couple of websites for you guys:
http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Ghazghkull_Mag_Uruk_Thraka
http://theblackship.org/downloads/rules/wd297_chap_approve.pdf

Once upon a time (read: 2nd edition) Ghazghkull had a personal standard bearer, Makari the Gretchin. He was quite fond of Makari. Makari had no battle application, he had no guns and poorer fighting ability than a Guardsman. But he had a banner, a BIG banner, that he waved about eagerly. In fact, so eagerly he often got shot at, but Makari was a special Gretchin. He was ridiculously lucky, so lucky in fact, he had an unmodifiable 2+ save (equivilent of a 2+ invul save). So walking into the most dangerous battlezones in the whole of the grimdark Universe was one plucky little Gretchin with a banner, standing side by side with the most powerful Ork in existance.

Then Games Workshop decided that big bad Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka having a personal Gretchin wasn't grimdark enough. So big G sat on Makari by accident and fed him to a squig.

"I'm so mad I can't type intelligently". That.



[edit] The Truth about Makari
Orks are creatures of war and death. Deprived of it they waste away as other species would deprived a vital part of their diet. It is the slowest and most agonising death an Ork can face. But that is not to say that Orks do not have a kind side, a decent side. A side that allows them to feel fondness of others.

"Oi, Boss, where ya goin'?" asked Graknob, before a sharp smack to the back of the head from one of his fellow Nobs silenced him. Ghazghkull Thraka, greatest Ork Warlord the Orkoid race has ever seen, did not even stop in his plodding steps as he walked away from his main tent in the camp. Some of the boyz had objected to moving the Waaagh off course to visit this small, unknown, out of the way planet. 'Itz already been smashed, why we'z goin' here?' some had asked, but never loud enough for the boss to hear. The Nobz waited for their mega-armoured warboss to be out of earshot before answering the new member of Ghazghkull's retinue.

"'E's off rememberin'" said one, an old Ork named Griksnak who had served their boss for many many years.

"'E can remember jus' fine round 'ere. What's 'e rememberin'?" asked the curious Nob, uncaring of the death-stares he was receiving from his fellow Nobz.

"Think 'bout it dis way, ya git. Us Orks love ta fight, yeah?"

"Yeah, even a snotling knows dat!"

"But da boss keeps sendin' us 'gainst da 'umies. Dis is cuz 'e hates dem. Now, why'd da boss hate 'umies?"

Graknob remained silent for a few seconds, pondering the question he was asked. "Cuz dey got ugly faces?"

The other Nobz just shook their heads. "'E lost someone ta 'em." Graknob looked around, confused. Everyone knew it didn't matter if an Ork died, he just got belched back into another body. He couldn't understand the feeling of loss.

Ghazghkull had shed most of his mega armour by the time he got to the top of the hill. Being an Ork, the act of removing armour seemed... unusual, to say the least, but it seemed appropriate to approach this site somewhat vulnerable. After all, he was meeting with the one being he knew would never harm him.

"'ey. Uhh... not sure what's I suppose'ta say 'ere. Jus' wanted tah, y'know, say 'ello. See how ya's was. Dose 'umies who got dat lucky shot off on ya? Yeah, dey dead. 'Dere planet is dead. Got lotsa da bastards. 'Ope dat helps out somehow. Wells... I's be goin', den. I... I misses ya, boy." Ghazghkull Mag Thraka turned and began walking down the hill again, leaving the grave he had been speaking to behind. A grave that simply said:

Makari

Banna Wava

Everyone knew Orks were belched back into another body after they died. Not Gretchin though. No Gretchin could ever replace Makari.

IN case anyone else but me has trouble making out WTF Makari looks like from the avatar.

So...let me get this straight... a model that is "Clearly Makari" the only distinguishing thing about it is that it is
A) a gretchin?
B) has a banner?

I don't see much about the description that would allow me to construct something that is "unique" to Makari that couldn't easily be called "Gretchin w/ Banner".

Is the 1990's 2nd Ed Gretchin Grin required or can we update the model to a look a little more 40K 2010?

More up to date is what I'm Looking for. I just don't want a gretchin painted and handed to me and being said "Hey its Makari!"
Clearly to me would be when I look through all my gretchin, about 150 of them, I want to go hey there is Makari!

Honestly I don't even know how feasible it is to ask for something like this but i am interested in seeing what peoples interpretation would be and I miss Makari!
