The Grot Rod

Here is the latest addition to my Ork army, however I can't decide on which clan will get it.  This trukk was made on the cheap from a Battlewagon chassis I picked up from the Ebay's for around $3, and combined with a healthy dose of left over bits.  

The front end sports a single Head lamp left over from one of my GW building kits.  Kind of gives it a happy face wink now that I am looking at the pic :)

The real wheels where based off a some random Lego bits that were obtained (with permission) from my son.  I covered the rim with plasticard, and also layered it up on the tires themselves to create a more orky tread.  The spokes were some left over Deffkoppta parts, which seem to make it into most of my conversions some how.

The back of the engine is a little sparse, so I may need to do some cleanup/detail work until I am happy with it.  Since my first trukk has a BigShoota mounted on it, I wanted to change it up a bit and throw the "waste of points" rokkit on it somewhere.  I understand that 9 times out of 10 it will not do anything, but all I will remember is the time it did.

More to come soon...  Got updates for my Ku'gath/Great Unclean One coming soon, as well as Nurgle Obliterators, and a new custom Fateweaver/Lord of Change model I have been having fun with...

Great conversion. It all 'fits' perfectly and looks awesome.

That is fantastic. I always enjoyed how one can just bash a bunch of bits together and it just "looks orky". Love it, and look forward to seeing more!

Thanks for the support! The beautiful thing about Orks is how much you can get away with when your modeling... is that crooked? nope, just Orky.
