A very interesting dissertion. After having made my first Boomwagon out of a Dark Eldar raider with a Leman Russ battlecannon portruding from the prow, I felt it would be so fun with an extra big gun alongside it.

This article made me think of making a second one! Smashing!

Boomwagons are best when they work in concert with more dakka. Another boomwagon, a SAG, or some Grotzooka kans. I need to get a real model so I can bring it to bear outside of VASSAL.

In terms of modeling, I'm going with a Blood Angels Whirlwind for fluff reasons, but before that I looked at a Hammerhead for the contrast between the ramshackle Ork trukks and the sleek Tau vehicle. I've seen some awesome looted Carnifex models as well.

I am going to make a Looted Fex one day.

It is a sadly depressed creature going under they name Eyoree! ;D

For now, I am making a second Looted Wagon, but since I love variety, it will be a Skorchawagon, with two Big shootas as backup. It is a Sister of Battle Immolator that has been Kuztomized. I only use the base of the guntower, keep the Heavy bolters, and have played a heavy flamer on the side in the turret itself. Then some Plasticard to make a closed turret.
And if I want to use the thing as a "looted trukk", I just remove the Heavy bolters from their pins and count the heavy flamer as a Big shoota! ;D

You gotta be nifty and kunnin if you ar too playy Da Orkz!
