Personally, I'd take off some of those Chaos symbols...

Don't forget that some orks do worship the chaos gods, most noteably the stormboys worshiping Khorne.

Its a good start but Iwould take off those chaos symbols on the legs. Everyone knows it is a defiler. It may be to late but I would have taken off the chaos cannon barrel and put bigger one on more orky.

I would still add some random plates and wires coming out of things to make it more ramshakle appearing. Because right now you take the two orks and the three glyphs off and it could still fit right into a chaos army.

In my humble opinion, that's BS. Orks worship Gork and Mork. No-one and nothing else.

Yeah, I don't remember anything about Orks worshiping Chaos Gods in 40k. They've got their own gods and religion programmed into their DNA, that's why they *don't* follow chaos.

As for removing the chaos symbols...the only ones I see are the stars on the leg joints, and those should be fine

It's looking good so far though.

It looks good to start, but I agree it doesn't scream "orks" yet.

Well, the reason I left some of the chaos symbols on the thing was three-fold,

First orks are lazy (when their not killing people) and why would they scrape all of them off if they can delight in stomping on those they stole it from with it still covered in all their symbols and religious mumbo-jumbo. (Note the story from the Ork Codex concerning attempting to infiltrate IG guard positions using stolen tanks so they could drive around running over things, as a giant joke)

second, although some looted vehicles are, very much worse for wear, I kinda approached the project thinking this vehicle was rather "Freshly Looted" so it still retained some of the old actually functioning parts, I will add some orkish details here and there, but for the most part I am going to leave the lower body of the defiler well enough alone, although I might fashion some "replacement" armor pads for the rear legs.

and third, My buddy who sold it to me is an avid CSM player he gave me a good deal, but wasn't quite convinced I could do it so, I left a few of the chaos emblems on their to make mockery of his proper daemon propelled (and well modeled I might add) defiler so that when I play against him we can play clash of the titans...althogh my "Looted Armor" of 11, most likely won't stand up to dreadnought combat weapons. Ah well, such is a war bosses life.

PS, I've never heard of Orks worshiping chaos gods, that sounds kind of strange, The fluff surrounding The Orks writes them as completely immune to the ill effects of chaos (not of the head exploding variety, more just standard chaos god psudo-warp perils) because they were originally a weapon made to eliminate chaos. However, Orks worshipping Korne would be, a rather hilarious subversion, seeing as they can't well receive any of his gifts...

Edit: I was going to replace the central cannon with an old Ork "Lobba" but, The central cannon is a linch pin for the whole upper torso, so I left as is, I may consider "sawing it off" to make it stubbier and less functional looking.

I'm all for playing this game, but you don't have to be a dick about it.

I would saw it down and slip some plastic tubes over it to make it look like a propper ork cannon since a looted wagon just looks really cool with a big old boom gun.

Now to the fluff part waaaay back in the ork codex: Freebooterz there are Khorne's stormboyz which did worship the chaos god Khorne (P. 14). They are considered outsiders and would not be found in any propper ork army. However, this is the only codex that this appears in after the freebooterz codex the orks only follow Gork and Mork and stormboyz are just crazy orks with rokkits strapped to their backs to get stuck in sooner than the foot sloogers.

Default Looted Defiler

I'm thinking of something like the walker in the movie "Wild Wild West". That was pretty Orky: lots of wires controlling the legs, gubbins everywhere, a big engine room in the middle and an open command deck at the front. Who needs a Daemon when you've got steam!

Come to think of it, there were several good Ork ideas in that film .....
