Hi all.

I decided recently that some Rokkit buggies would be a good project to play with, but when I did some research on here I couldn't decide how to make them. I saw some based on AoBR koptas, and some based on beakie Land Speeders, both of which looked awesome. So I decided to make both. I started with some deffkoptas traded from Det, wheels from Ramshackle Games:

And this is what's coming up next:

There's still a fair amount to do, but the basic structure on the kopta buggies is there to see. This is the inspiration thread for these.

Cheers,

I love your use of the deffkotas to make the buggies. My one suggestion is that you personalize each of them; at present they look uniform and that ain't orky ;) I also like where the speeder is going. My concern with that is without some sort of wheel/track in the front it looks unbalanced at present. Having said that, I don't know what kind of wheels you could use to fix that. Very lootable work! :cheers

I was thinking about using the skis that I chopped off the koptas to put on the front of the speeders so they are resting on something at the front.

Nothing is glued together here, just to see how it might look.


I wondered about making the weapons magnetic but I think I'm unlikely to use skorchas, I'm bringing these bad boyz for the rokkits.

Awesome conversion. My looted landspeeders feature the trakks at the front, rather then at the back so it's interesting to see them there.

Hmm, the back seemed to have more "open space" to put the tracks hence why it's there, but maybe I'll have a look tonight to see how it feels with the tracks at the front. But then what did you use to support the back, wheels?

Here's what I did with my landspeeders.

I used wartrakk tracks, with trukk wheels at the back.

Forgot to say, I love the quad bikes. They would make awesome Nob Bikes.

Nice. My trakks are significantly bigger so I think they're more suited to being at the back. You've done a great job detailing those, and I might have to loot your idea of GS'ing over the legs.

Here's what I've plumped for on the first of a planned 3 speeder rokkit buggies:

Does it work with the mono-ski at the front?

Possibly. You need something else to break up the front, so as to not have the skids blend in with the "bumper." What I would suggest is the same thing I suggest putting on the front of every Ork vehicle. Put a gob on there. That'll break up the parts blending together.

Loot anything from the buggies. I've been looting ideas from this site from my days as a lurker. There was a Landspeeder jeep here that was done prior here which I looted the idea from.

some great buggies here, love the trakks and the deffkopter conversions. I have done something similar with defkopters but used two blades of the kopter for forks and only one front wheel to make either Nob biker trikes with rokkits (or big shootas) or wartrike buggies, depending on what game i decide to play. They can represent either.

If that doesn't work...then you know you're up to your neck in it!

I must say I lilke the other 2 buggies better then this one. Its a cool Idea but I think it lacks that orkiness to me. I am interested where this might go though.

It does and it doesn't for me?? :bang Frustratingly I can kinda see what you are trying for but unless you are only going to play in the snow I don't see them working on rougher terrain so personally I would stick some wheels up the front.

Just a reverse of what I Rosputnik did with his:

Very good work. I have three AoBR deffkoptas in a box, and I don't really want them as deffkoptas (I use 'Deffsoots' instead).
I however really like your deffkopta-buggies, and you have inspired me! Now all I need to do is find some good tires. :thumbs

Irritatingly I think you're all right, perhaps the monoski doesn't quite work out with the trakks - I'm tempted to try a mono-wheel front wheel instead, not unlike a Reliant Robin:

Posted Image

Alternatively I could try standard 2-wheels at the front, but I'll need to find something smaller than what I have at the moment.

As far as wheels go for the first set of buggies, I can't recommend enough Ramshackle Games for unique bits.
