40Kart by IronShrineMaiden 40Kart by IronShrineMaiden
Something I sketched during lunch breaks. Mario Kart but with grimdark cuteness.

The Deff Racer - 'Eavy class racer with high durability and power. Slow acceleration and med top speed. Special: Nitro boost forward while crushing and skewering all in it's path.

Tomb Sprynter - Heavy class racer with massive durability, med accel, low top speed and med power. Special - Phases to race leader and disassembles their vehicle. Then assumes pole position.

The Prying Dutchman - A ratling designed tank commandeered by a squad of 4 brave heroes of the Imperium. Heaviest (and slowest) of all vehicles with high durability and high firepower. Slow acceleration and low top speed. Vehicles to the left, right and in front will be constantly harassed by the ratling snipers and tank crew inside. Special - The 4 guardsmen quickly draw straws to see who rides the guard-launcher:
1)Catachan Jungle Fighter - Upon landing on an enemy vehicle, the catachan attempts to disable the driver and steer the vehicle backwards into oncoming traffic until the vehicle's destruction.
2)Tallarn Desert Raider - With an 'Emperor Ackbar!' the suicidal guardsman detonates a high explosive attached to himself upon landing.
3)Krieg Gaurdsman - Fills the enemy driver's vehicle with biochemical grenades that degrades vehicle health and obscures vision with a toxic cloud in and around the vehicle.
4)Cadian Kasrkin - Upon landing on the enemy vehicle the kasrkin elite relays his co-ordinates to a battalion of nearby basilisks. He jumps to safety just as the area is bombarded.

Krootox Khan - A heavy class racer with medium power, durabilty and top speed but with high acceleration. His rider will also harass other racers who get too close. Special - Krootox Khan becomes blinded with rage and charges forward, becoming invulnerable to attacks and swatting other racers off the track for a period of time.

Khornate Supercross - Medium class racer with med durability, high accel, med top speed and med power. Special: Twin chainaxes brandished to strike vehicles on either side for a limited period of time.

Beak Speeder - Medium class racer with high durability, low accel, med top speed and low power. Special: Orbital bombardment on any opponent on the map with a large area of effect blast.

The Tinderbox - Medium class vehicle with med durability and high firepower. Medium acceleration and top speed. Special: The Tinderbox switches to servo skull autodrive while the sororita covers surrounding vehicles in a fiery conflagration that damages and obscures vision for a limited period of time.

Butcher Bird - A medium class vehicle with low acceleration, high top speed but low power and durability. Special - The Butcher Bird loops three times in the air. On the third loop it litters the ground with dark matter mines damaging multiple foes behind it. Alternatively, this special can be used to avoid being targeted and attacked by enemies for the duration that it is looping.

Webway Glider - A Light class vehicle with med durability, low power and med accel and top speed. Also distracts with DAT ASS. Special - Uses a webway gate shortcut to skip half the lap.

Tauasaki - Light class vehicle with high top speed and acceleration. Low durability and low power. Special - Drones detach from bike. Drone 1 is a harassment gun drone. Drone 2 builds speed bumps behind Tauasaki.

Zipper Sled - Light class vehicle with high acceleration and med top speed. Low durability and low power. Special - The zoanthrope sledder fires up to 3 psychic bolts, each bolt capable of locking a targeted vehicle into stasis for a period of time.

Select your rider! :chew:

I'd go for the Prying Dutchman, although personally I'd prefer a Steel Legionary to a Death Korp but hey.

Cool.They all look really good but the imperial one and the ork one look really out of place. As for the karts:

lil' Gork- High acceleration, high top speed, poor turning, poor toughness. Most ork vehicles are more interested in speed or dakka than toughness. Remeber - red wunz go fasta.

The tau one seems like it should be realy good at handling. I don't know why, it just seems like a tau-y thing. And why not have that cocaine slaanesh guy on the chaos bike?

Anyway, just a couple'a suggestions. Really good work.

Room for one more? Squat Battle Trike

that room is for Adeptus Mechanicus' Machine Knight instead of Squat battle trike

And the roster keeps on growing.

For some reason seeing this again made me wonder if pet ownership tends to have a positive or negative effect on the average life expectancy of an upper level IG officer.

Can you make Adeptus Mechanicus vehicle: a Variant of Imperial Knight: [link] variant that modified for racing and it's armaments are it's own special powers and add it to 40kart because there's only 1 room left for this?
masonicon Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2011  Student General Artist
one more Rider: Adeptus Mechanicus' Machine Knight for 40kart

Sorry! there's only one room left and that is for the Adeptus Mechanicus' Machine Knight, besides Khornate Supercross is enough to represents Chaos at whole

She-Shaper? Boss.
dourlynome Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011
IMHO, the Krootox seems a bit impractical. Durable as all hell, sure, and with a rider that will make life inconvenient for everybody else, but I'd imagine it'd be a good deal slower than . . . well, most of the 'zippier' vehicles on the list.

I could see the Webway Glider, the Khornate Supercross, the Beak Speeder, and the Tauasaki flying circles around it, and still being nimble enough to avoid the (female?) Shaper on its back.
IronShrineMaiden Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011
Well it would be just like mario kart vehicle classes. The heavy vehicles wouldn't be a popular choice for winning a straight up race but rather to trash the other racers instead.
dourlynome Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011
Oh, that's a fair point. Why zip around like a 'tard when you can beat them out of the way with your sheer bulk?

The fact that the Krootox's Shaper comes with a whip could be useful, then . . . knocks the rider off a Tauasaki with a single blow, for example.
zombiewaffle Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love this game but every time I jump into first place someone HAS to pick up Exterminatus

You owe me a new controller for the one I shattered

This game is broken. Just wait for the update. :bounce:
