Default Warbikes (from the Flames of Mork) - Pic Heavy

Well, these guys didn't fare so well in the recent Fast Attack competition, but I wanted to see whether you guys had any comments/criticism for these converted Warbikes

Here they are unpainted:












And then I whacked on a good coat o' paint!

The first one:






Group shot








I never got round to taking individual shots of Bikes 2 and 3, but can if anyone wants to see them a little closer

I have another seven bikes lying in my workshop pits waiting to be serviced, so I'm looking for ideas and inspiration for when I finally get round to doing them!
Any suggestions?

God I love your bikes. They actually LOOK like something an ork would go around in. Stupid gorkamorka bikes... Anyhow. I dunno, can't you do a trike?

Yeah, although I was thinking I'd leave the Trike for the Nob to ride, and have his as the only one to make it stand out more.

Thanks - my aim was to make 'em look more...well, Orky! Changing the riders was the first obvious step, and then getting rid of those weedy BSs, and then adding bigger exhausts...and so on...

The flames look great, as do the conversions. Nice job!
The only thing I can see for you to work on is the wheels - a little mud and grime would orkify it even further.
