hey guys, i picked up a landraider the other day which i am going to convert into a BW (badmoon). the BW will carry 10 burna boys and a Mek with KFF. Therefore i shall be painting flames and having become the 'mek' BW with gubbinz and bitz everywhere. (there will be a total of 3 BW's in my army).

So I started with the tracks and as it is 'looted' and orky i went with a bit of battledamage which the grotz had then repaired.

I then added a floor pannel where the krew will be (will be detailed later). I will leave some space for a big gun ( probably a forge world one).
(excuse the elastic bands holding it together)

here a quick sketch of what i would like to do.
Posted Image

I am planning to have a cabin that is at the front of the tank. this will then have a deffrolla coming off it. I got the front piece of the Landraider and it worked pretty well. I then got the turret from the stompa kit that is meant to go on his right shoulder and it fit perfectly into the gab.

I then made some big orky exhausts which will stick out the back.

Not a bad start there! Wouldn't have guessed the Stompa's turret thing fitted right in to the Land Raider's front turret slot. How did you make that wheel in the repaired section? Im guessing the suspension is from the Trukk kit, but the wheel looks like a kustom job. Keep going, it's looking pretty good so far. :thumbs

Good use of the Lego wheels! :thumbs Wish i kept my Lego from when I was younger :sowhat The cabin idea is sorta what I was planning for mine too, so I'll probably wait a bit and see how you do yours :lol Good start btw though!

I'd turn it around and have th eback be the new front...

I like the idea of it being under construction. "...and now witness the power of this fully armed and operational... STOMPA!"

i have seen a lot of people who have done this and i did some sketches before i even started of the bw front and back forward and the front worked better with what i wanted to do with the cabin and exausts.

I know that is makes it look like it is going faster when you put it backwards. but it wouldn't work that well
thanks

Actually... question. Where do the boyz get in and out? The sides, im guessing. Not planning on making a frontal assault ramp, or a deff roller/drivers cabin that flips up? Probabbly too late to change things now, but it's worth asking. ;)

OK, after a busy week I did some work on the BW.


Started on the deffrolla
Posted Image
The arms are then magnetized onto the side of the landraider.
Posted Image
I also got to work on putting panels on the other side of the Bw and also having panels which give a bit of protection to the boys on the top.
Posted Image
Added the two big shootaz to the turret and then two more bigshootaz on each side (see first pic)
