Default Mad Max

Was watching the movie earlier and thought it might be fun to make a mad max styled IG HSO.

Ok we'll were gonna need a shotgun(sawedoff)

Black leather

Hm we'll it was a good idea until i figured out how ineffective it is.

Ya gotta have something fast.

Hm posibly using bikers as roughriders? mabe scout bikes?

Definatly need to have lots of transport units mabe mech.

Hm i almost think ork vehicles would be better.

Perhaps use ork dex and use humans instead of orks?

I really believe speedfreaks would look awsome with humans aswell.

You could always use Orks as "wasteland mutants" or something... :

Never like the appearance of orks all that much i'ed probably use catachan models and make a speed freak army with em.

On a scale of 1-10 in coolness that would be a solid 9 as long as you can do a decent job of it.

But that would be so cool, make a battle waggon from a semi truck or school bus.

Ya i know i've been starting to plan it out a bit.

Gonna use necrumonda models the gang dudes with mowhawks and all the crazy hairdoo's.

My friend had a battlewagon he never opened won it at a tourney or something so he gave it to me and i'm messing with the parts seeing what i can build.

A semi will look best so i'm gonna go buy a model watertanker friend said his little brother got a bunch of models like that at wal-mart or something if not i'll go 2 this local store called don's hobbies they have like every model ever made there. Even the old DoomRider from chaos.

All in all i'm not really sure how ork armies work especially speed freeks.

Lots of bikes
Lots of trucks
Lots of truck based(non transport) wepons

Basically i dont want a single model on foot. Doest fit the style

As it happens to be i was looking arround at don's hobbies yesterday just jacking arround and i found the mad max car and its the size of a wartruk like not even a CM off i was talking to this guy at my game club who has an ork army in the process Goffs or some gay thing and has a wartuck so i built the car right there friends painted pieces with me until we got it done in about an hour and 1/2 looks great Black ink washes and everything. Also has the sweet fuel injector on the hood So i'm going to use it as my Hq's transport keep it next to a battle wagon

But the idea is Mad Max rides alone not gonna stuff a bunch of reunites with him i'll keep them seperate as a another hq choice or something if i can. If not i'll use it in smaller games when My Semi Battle wagon cant join the fun.


Problem is findng a model that looks like mad max. Any ideas other than chopping up catachans and a commissar.

Digganobs from Gorakamorka would be perfect but they're oop so they'll be hard to come by.
So you'll probably have to settle for Goliaths from Necromunder

EDIT: I was just over at dakka. This may help you with your vehicles WIP Imperial Guard Truck

I checked out the truck and the goliaths they are good but dont quite fit what i want although i can use them as some troops just not my hq.

If anyone has seen a sequil to mad max again watched this the other day not for the 1st time but its fresh in my memory. "road warrior" i believe

Kind of like the tanker but possibly with the tank cut in 1/2 used as a truck bed kind of for hauling troops i'm gonna position most of the guns in it. i dont like this idea much just putting another image out there.

I'll probably make a flatbed very wide lots of spikes / barbwire and chains with the turrets on it

I'll post my final ideas later for now i want to get some inspiration and does anyone know much about speedfreaks?

I want bikes/ truks/ battlewagon/ guntruks/ buggies

If it has wheels i'm probably going to use it.

I'm thinking about 1500 to 1850 pts standard us tournament style.
