Okay, crazy idea, I've got 4 wheels from a trukk kit, a bunch of the axels and tie rods, and drive shafts, as well as the armor plates and whatnot...could...I buy a drop pod....and turn it on its side, and make it into a cool vehicle... showing that orks can really loot anything. hehe, put some little wheels on it, and patch over a couple doors with glyphs and armor.


Good idea? or utter crap?

Haha, sounds great! You could make it a bit bigger, get some tubing, and make a huge cannon coming out of the top (if it was on its side). Use it as a looted wagon with a boomgun...

Anyway, sounds fun, interesting, and totally random. Perfect :good:

Sounds a good idea, like a jack in the box on wheels. Definitely something to appeal to an Ork.

Well, their is the "funny" way, where its on its end like proper kind of "camoflauged" as a normal pod that creaks along the table and then opens up.

But, personally, I was thinking rocket powered assault vehicle, Put it on its sides, graft the drive to the bottom there (and glue up one of the 4 flaps to serve as the base to that) then model guys at the controls, cut off the two side flaps and reattach them roughly sideways like buckboards, put a couple guys hanging off and hollaring, and a big ass engine.

A looted drop pod could be used for all sorts of things. From buildings (like an Ork guard tower or something) to some bazaar wheeled or tracked vehicle. In either case, you must make one! The forums demand it! I can already picture a bunch of cool things in my head.

It's definitely something an Ork would do for sure. Those drop pods always wind up in the craziest places, anyhow.

I really like that idea. You should do it.

It. Will be done, as soon as I am finished building my stompa. (one project at a time, also I gotta justify 30 dollars on something of questionable table usage)

Although, to answer some of the questions, I am firmly of the "Wheeled/Tracked Vehicle" persuasion, simply because, orks already have ways to fly things straight into the ground and hope for the best. those are called roks. lol

This is a good plan.
My suggestion, on its side so the retros can be used to make it go faster.

God I love this community. For some reason this has the same feeling of 6 guys standing around outside a fast food joint pooling their singles going "We can make this work"

I can't back down now.

What could you mean by looted? Do you mean rdy for drop again or use it for a weapon? Cause the drop pod deployed kinda looks like an doom weapon!
Looted means that the Orks (or the race in question for other instances) have captured the item (in this case the drop pod) and 'improved' it to make it up to Orky standards by nailing boards, wheels and armour plates to it.
