Those look really good. I've seen a number of kopta to buggy conversions but this is the first kopta to bike conversion. If you are going with just nob bikers I think this will work. If you plan on using the boyz that come attached to the koptas I don't think they'll look as good. They are a bit on the weedy side with those tires. Keep up the good work. :cheers

Looking great Orchead - & great to have you back!!! :thumbs
So - whenever dem doks finish staplin' yer arms back on Haky, why don't you an yer boyz come down fer a visit. We'll 'av a few squigaritas, throw a few grots around an' discuss who dis 'ere choppa really belongs to...

These Waaaghs are a cross between a mass migration, holy crusade, looting party and pub crawl, with a bit of genocide thrown in for good measure.

You know Nosher's MO, anything he paints blue is automatically his.

excellent conversion, a great way to boost your ranks of Nob Bikers with the larger size of the Deffkopta. I really like the sleek, lowriding look but still heavy and solid enough to plow through Chaos Beakies. Awesome work!

Love these! I love the look of the new bikes but these have something that those don't.

@Orchead The other images probably don't want to load due to "file size". I'm guessing they are in the 1Mb+ range ;) Decrease the size of the file and it should even out, no problem. LOVE. The Nob bikes, very well done conversion work :)
Always stay true to Ork beliefs: Bloo is lucky, Red makes fings go fasta, and rivits can fix ANYTHING!!!

I like both the bike and trike conversions. You made good use of the existing Kopta housing and made it mesh well with bike suspensions. The wheels chosen are a good scale match to the kopta frames, and the Nob works well too. Good variety developing with both bike and trike approaches. Excellent kickoff here, I'll be watching with interest to see how the final product pans out! My two teef, Warboss Gorhack

Going to go Trike ..... have done a basic fit while painting bike 3 and it fits better with the rest ( no pointing by Hummie and cries of buggy buggy ) Had to drill and pin trukk axis then chop a bit out to fit the chain drive ( more fiddly that a bag of squigs but has turned out OK ) Must go paint No3 now and try to fit a Warboss onto the trike har de har ( going to use the Blackridge one ) Doc Doc pass the hacksaw ... good to be Green Orchead the Red :thumbs
