Modelling and Conversions

Some new photographs and conversions.

The Grot Bomb Launcha, this conversion uses a Skorcha (as I had one spare) with the turret (and part of the chassis) taken off at a 45 degree angle. You could use a Wartrak and take the gunner off, it would probably be easier than the Skorcha. I used a combination of a saw, clippers, a craft knife and a lot of swearing as it wasn't that easy to cut through the metal. I then used a piece of plastic strut to make the firing platform, the strut was already "I" shaped. A Pulsa Rokkitt was then stuck on top, some green stuff to make the cockpit, this was done by putting a small circle of green stuff on top of the Rokkitt. I then took a poor Gretchin and cut him in half before sticking him into the cockpit.

Painting was done by undercoating in white, painting in the black parts and the crew. The black sections were then drybrushed with Tin Bitz and then lightly drybrushed with an alumnium coloured paint. The rest of the model was then painted red and given a chestnut ink wash.

Ork Trukk with Krooz Missulz (aka an Orkish version of the Imperial Deathstrike Missile Launcher, but why not use the Krooz Missulz rules for the Mega-Gargent. The model is built using a Flakwagon base, a firing platform from a Pulsa Rokitt and the Krooz Missulz, well it's a 40k scale Fighta-Bommer Missile.

A Squiggoth with scratch-built howdah containing plastic ork infantry and some buggy gunners.

A Squiggoth with a combi-weapon of a Hydra Flak Gun and an Ork Big Gunz.

An unconverted Squiggoth.

A converted Battle Fortress (uses turrets from a Squiggoth and two plastic Battlewagon turrets).

An converted Battle Fortress, complete with Flakwagon gun and boyz in the back.

Ork Trukks full of Shootas. These are Flakwagons, Ork Buggy Gunners, some of the trukks have had shovels (Imperial bulldozer blades) added.

Close-up shot of Ork Trukk.

Empty Ork Trukks (some have had extra front and back bitz added to the passenger compartment, these were taken from the sides of other Flakwagons).

Ork Bowelburna with plasticOrk Battlewagon turret.

Ork Mek Trukk, designed to be used on an Orky airfield. Simply a Flakwagon with the sides removed, a "crane" added from the plastic "grabby" bitz from the plastic Ork Battlewagon sprue and a Mek stuck on.

Killa Kans (easy these ones, just remove the "claws" from regular Ork Dreadnoughts)

Ork Gun Trukk (Zap)

Ork Gun Trukk (Zap). Take one Ork FlakWagon, use a Big Gunz (mount on gun carriage and cut off wheels) and place where you would put the Flak gun. You could add Ork crew if you wanted.

Ork Gun Trukk (Lobba)

Ork Gun Trukk (Lobba). Take one Ork FlakWagon, use a Pulsa Rokkit (mount on firing launcher carriage and cut off wheels, though I have also used the "wooden" launcher which works well) and place where you would put the Flak gun. You could add Ork crew if you wanted. This Ork Trukk is not firing as a normal Pulsa Rokkit would - so remember to make that clear to your opponent. You could also use the model as a Pulsa Rokkit if you wanted.

Ork Trukk

Ork Trukk. Take one Ork FlakWagon, fill in hole with green stuff and then glue in two gunners from Ork Buggies and there you are an ork Trukk ready to transport the Boyz into battle.

Another variation (this time not from Epic Magazine #2) is viewing this Trukk more as a M113 ACAV style vehicle.

Ork Battlefortress

Ork with added Ork Gunners, Pulsa Rokkit and Gunz taken from Flakwagons to replace the original turrets. Rules to follow.

This shows a side-view of the Ork Battlefortress with Pulsa Rokkit and FlakWagon guns.
