Icon Battlewagon Convert

The other day i picked up an Ork Battlewagon box set. I want 2 for my army, but i believe that no two Ork vehicles should look the same...

soo any good ideas of what i could convert into one?

I wanted something about the same size.

I recommend using only the single kit for the pair of vehicles. scratch build half of each for a matched pair of completely different vehicles.

As I understand it, the Land Raider's about the right size...my wagons are both quite a bit bigger, so I wouldn't suggest using a baneblade or three rhinos duct taped together like I did

I like the idea of usign one kit to build both vehicles, with the rest scratchbuilt or augmented with bits of other tanks

I like the sounds of one kit for 2 models... and I think I'll pick up a Land Raider to help fill in...
while I'm at it... what do you think would be good for a Deff Rolla? I had a 2" pipe fitting I was going to use.

My wife has a circular hairbrush with fairly widely spaced plastic spikes...
Something like this might work.

lol, aahhhhhhhhhh were going to be squashed by a big rolling, wait, is that a squigoths hair brush?

but other wise i would suggest getting 2 truck kits, and joining them with 1 battle wagon kit, just for some interest.

I used the spikey tank traps from the old Battlefield Accessories kit and some unused pieces of Deflier arms to make a sort of roto-tilla uv deff

the brush isn't that bad of an idea and i like the "roto-tilla" look too

somthing I thought of today was one of those minesweepers that spins chains really fast, but i don't think i could find one to the right scale

Hmm.... the chain flail minesweeper thing is pretty awesome... but I've never seen one on a model. You could just make your own. A few coats of clear varnish applied to some necklace chain and a stick from your back yard ought to do it. adding some spikey balls to the ends of the chain be good as well.

You could probably do it with bits as well. Skaven monks have a morning star weapon option that would work (only 4 of that arm in my box tho, so you'd probably have to spend a fair bit of effort locating enough of these)
