Ork Land Raider Battlewagon

Ork Land Raider Battlewagon

My first attempt at Ork-ifying a big vehicle. Bought it cheap painted but unassembled off eBay - hence revolting colour. I want to leave the yellow base colour and daub Orky-style red and blue over it before adding bare metal and rusting, but my son disagrees. Probably still needs a few more added plates, rivets, etc.

Scratched my head over a Deff Rolla (not paying FW prices!). Ended up with foam water pipe lagging and a bag of inch-and-a-half nails plus a few bits from the bits box. Nails were pushed through randomly from the inside and then the joint in the foam glued shut. Nail points are easily clipped off or filed down to make them blunter. Seems to work, and I got enough foam and nails to make half a dozen for about 3. Roller is removable for transport, hence open-top trunnions (mounts, to you). Needs some panel seams cut and rivets added.

Wrecking ball/morning star also uses (cut off) nails in holes drilled in a blob of set Milliput

Not at all - no point showing it otherwise!

I told you almost everything you need to know above. There is a plastic tube running all the way through to make the trunnions. Necessary because of the weight of the nails. The ends are made from old tank wheels, but really need some card discs to hide the foam texture.

There's a picture of the finished model in the Ork gallery.

I made a different type of Rolla using plastic waste piping and plastic card on my Battle Fortress, also listed in this gallery.
