Hi all,

Just saying hi and showing off my new Looted demolisher/Russ. I like the site a lot and have been playing orks for a long time now. Glad to find a place where like minded Orks hang. Please let me know what you think.

This build is only the demolisher nothing added, only glue and 5 magnets (Russ barrel, Head). A fried had it in his car over the past few summers so it was warped/melted, from the heat.

First, welcome to the waaagh! Second: That is a novel way to assemble a leman russ! Nice stompa, only problem I see is the low gound-clearance, it would get stucked on a beercan...

Yeah, riggers are useful for that. But if you have time/parts I think it would look better raised a little bit, either that or riggers running beside it carrying metal ramps used to scale things, and sweeping the area in front of it clean.

If you are realy unfamilar with the 'RuzzBot' concept then you havent search this forum properly... or even bothered looking at Da Olia'z BlooPrintz for that matter.

This is a great new design in RuzzBot, and its going straight into Da Olia'z ;)

Welcome to Da Waaagh :cheers

I heartily second that!

It puts me in mind of the old skool Runtbotz, only bigger and shootier.

A fine debut on the Waaagh, now I guess you've just got to get it painted ;)

I like this. It's a comfotable step towards a full on stompa and carries many of the stylings that Epic Orks carry. I would like to see taller exhausts and the nice odd bits (lifter arms and grabby bits, and everyone loves a good got tower). Welcome, and you've made a nice showing for your debut.

We see a culture that is strong and despise it as crude.


Check out my site and blog. Pardon the horrendous design.. it's a WiP

Welcome to the waaagh! :cheers I've gotta agree with the others, this is a really nice new take on a ruzz-bot. The tracks look much more orky in you configuration, though I would prefer a little more ground clearance. Nice scenic pics too - your bot's seeking new targets in a desolate wasteland. :biggrin Looking forward to seeing more of your work. :cheers

Do you need some 6th edition fortifications for your army, a new terrain piece or an 'armies on display' board?

Then build it, paint it, post it and move into "da orkiest town in da ooniverse", and have the chance of winning a prize!

OK after Reading the posted ideas i made a few changes, but the over all build has not changed. If i ever do any more ill make lots of changes using your ideas.

Using Magnets i have two types of tank, Russ with H-Bolter, 2X H-flamers or Demolisher with Las, 2X Plasma.

Oh well, I know what I'm going to be doing with my demolisher russ ;) Well done there matey, keep up the good work and I do hope you will be painting it some nice, bloo or yello' colours ;) And throw in a bit of red maybe? If it's going to flatten everything in sight it has to be fast too, don't it ;)

Personly I think the belly gun is too long. The Demolisha kannon would look better with out the extention. With the new codex soon to be here and the general view being that 'Looted' vehiclez are going to be crappy, you might want to concider turning this into a stompa instead of a RuzzBot. You could make a nice arm mounted Kannon from the BellyGun extention, and fashion a CC weapon for the other arm. Erez a pic... You can keep it looking like a RuzzBot thats had a serious upgrade ;)

i love the build. really nice job. dont agree with some of the other posters though. anything gets caught on the undercarriage, just back up and shoot it, or floor it and just crush the snag to pieces. and yes, i too think it would be find to use as a battlewagon in regular games and perhaps in the new codex if the rules for looted vehicles suck background looks like you are living in californias interior valley. what a great place to breed orksuses. welcome to the waaagh.
My boyz stomped in da welling blood as into a riva, da wheels of me bespattaed with blood and filth. i filled da plain with da corpses of da humies like hebage. the panic of me onslaught overwhelmed them like GORK and they fled, passin scaldin urine and voiding excrement in their pantis.

I HATE fish'ead.

Very nice. It's always goos to see something get all the way finished around here. So many of us build the best stuff (well, not me) and then never get around to finishing the paint. If i could make one suggestion, it would be to give the tracks a drybrush of a shinier metal (boltgun, maybe).. They would be getting pretty constant wear and the surfaces that routinely touch the ground tend to never get rusty because of that. :thumbs
