hello (boy i havent been on in a while)
I have a completed (glued but not painted) armoured company with a total of 8 tanks (all leman russ type). In addition to a *****in paint scheme i would like to do some conversions, and im not talking about some crappy little conversion that few people will notice. im talkin the big mama pajama. I have two ideas:
(even though these conversions use different armies they still use armoured company rules)
1) convert all my tanks so that they are all looted by the orks. Add gobbos over all the tanks, add some holes, and orky things all over the tanks.
2) convert all the tanks to look like they are traitor guard, with spikes and chaos symbols (tzeentch), and chains and all that jazz on all the tanks.
2)a) make the traitor guard tanks flying with flying bases, make it look like a gift from tzeentch, cover up the treads with tread guards, and green stuff.
Tell me which one you think will look the coolest.
I like the idea of the Trator Guard. it just sounds cooler plus i have had a few people tell me just becuse of my colors i could call them a Trator Guard.
If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.
2a would be the coolest by far, but would be hellish to do... go for 2
i must agree with the above post about the flying vehicles. unfortunately it will indeed be very hard to do. i love the idea of a traitor army! go with number 2!
EDIT: Apparently my post about track guards landed in this thread for some odd reason. Ignore me and go Orky. :>
Heck no! Orks are the way to go! Just think of all of the hilarious grot conversions you could have. :w00t:
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
Flying russes just doesn't sound.... natural. I think that would probably just turn out very wierd. I like the idea of orky tanks, simply because if it's looted by orks there's absolutely no limit to how much you can mess them up, especially with the paintjobs, and writing funny orky slogans on dozer blades and the like.
A Chaosy armored company works too. Consider buying just a bunch of chaos tank sprues from bitz order and gluing the 8 point stars all over the place, maybe crudely paint one onto the front of the tank, and make the imperial imagry (if any) scratched off.
You could go for a combination of the two, but that's a bit overambitious. I think you'd get the most original idea going for an orky armored column. It leaves you with a lot more possibilities too. You may have to explain to people why the tanks are at bs3 and 4 instead of 2, but just say they're orks who have been looting tanks for too long and forgot about shooting retardedly in the air to make noise.
