Fartok’s Outcast Rebels have been diligent in their scouring of the battlefields to produce the Creeper:
Ghar Outcast Rebel Creeper
One of the accomplishments of Fartok’s Outcast engineers is to ﬁnd ways of repurposing the simple shells of captured enemy equipment. Such shells are made of materials of a kind that is strange and alien, quite unlike the familiar onion-like layers of metals and composites used to make the bodies of Ghar equipment.
These weird materials do have the beneﬁt of being exceptionally lightweight and strong even without the beneﬁt of powerful magnetic shields. This has enabled the Outcasts to develop hybrid vehicles that are faster than the usual Ghar machines, burdened as they are with massive metallic body shells and the inertia generated by magnetic shielding.
The most successful of these machines to date is the type generally referred to as the Creeper. This uses the shell of a destroyed Algoryn Scout Skimmer, to which is attached a low-output plasma reactor and mechanical crawler legs. In Ghar hands the machine is large enough for two crew, a driver at the front of the vehicle and a separate gunner installed behind him. The reduced weight allows the machine to operate at higher speeds and enables the gun position to quickly come to bear on targets.

starting Your Ghar Outcast Rebel forces
Fartock is the obvious choice to begin your army, followed by his Black guard in a small starting force of 500pts, a perfect way to get started and easy to add to with the existing Ghar range or new Rebel equipment.
In this version of Fartok he is portrayed in the re-engineered battle armour incorporating a modified plasma reactor that became his trademark as the Outcast revolt gained momentum and grew into a fighting force to rival that of the Supreme Commander.
His battle armour has also been re-armed, and he has the choice of a Ghar disruptor cannon and a hybrid plasma light support, a weapon captured from the Algoryn and repurposed by Fartok’s engineers.
