You have a so many options when it comes to ork vechiles as you could make it from virtually anything. Personally i really like the possibilities the baneblade brings, without the turrets and main body of the tank it makes an awesome base to build from. Plasti-card is an awesome material for ork tanks as well

What I did and want to do

1. Landraider with plastic card on top so that you can use it either as a ard case or a open toped and I mounted a orc stompa main gun on it ... removable of course.

2. Ork Battle Wagon but instead of wheels I put defiler legs on it with the claws in the front of course.

3. .... I was thinking of finding a cool way of making one out of a hammerhead

Best pleace to find vehicles to find vehicles to make "looted" is off ebay. Somebody is allways selling a messed up model that sells for cheap because its missing things.

Oh yeah and I found out a great material to use with plastic card, pvc pipe but make sure its classified as SDR because it has a thinner wall so that you can cut it with a hacksaw alot easyer and its not as bulky as the sch40 rateing.

I've seen some cool ones converted from WWII tank models. The Sturmtiger makes for a pretty cool conversion...

This thread is over 3 years old.
In fact, it was posted before the Battlewagon model was even released. :laugh:
:laugh: That's funny. I didn't even notice. I just saw nobah's recent post and chimed right in.

Nightserpent's Battlewagon is still pretty cool though. If nothing else, it was worth sharing the pic. :laugh:
