    An Orky Hammerhead?

    Is it possible to take a Hammerhead tank from the Tau Empire and convert it to look like the Orks got a hold of it? My younger brother plays as the Orks and he loves his Looted Wagons and such. Has anyone done something similar to this so I can get an idea of what it would look like?

    I havn't seen one done yet but orkify-ing any vehicle is pretty easy. Put extra armour plates on the hull where maybe thers was battle damage or the mek just thought it would look good. Strap a few more guns in random spots on the hull: more shooty = more killy.

    The best thing to do would be to put in on wheels coz it's unlikely the orks would be able to work or reconstruct the anti-grav engines. Maybe swap out the rail gun for an orkish battle cannon and you could count the whole thing as a battle wagon

    How in the heck would I be able to get the wheels on in the first place? I'm pretty sure I can't put a few axles on a Hammerhead.

    Well, as I said in your other thread, I don't know much about the Hammerhead (not being a Tau player myself) but I'm sure you could fit on a couple of axles and wheels somewhere on the bottom. It might require a bit of filing and Green Stuff, but remember that it's Orks, so it's meant to look crude.

    Also, paint some random bits of it red. The red ones go fasta.

    If its anything like the DevilFish (dont have a hammerhead yet) then you can probably swap out the landing gear and glue wheels in its place ( but it wont roll, since its glued). not sure if itll look very Orky with 3 wheels, but its the best I can think of.

    3 wheels is more Orky than 4! Orks love trikey things.

    i did not do this model. this may give and idea or 2. so maybe you wont need to add wheels or tracks. i would how ever make it look as crude as possible.

    Ork vehicles work because the orks believe they do. If they believe it is a skimmer, its a skimmer.
    I would cut a jagged hole where the cockpit window is and stick an ork driver in. Replace the gun, or add more barrels, like others have said. Just slap things on. Thats the sign of a true mek.

    If I was going to butcher a devilfish and put wheels on it I would take off the engine pods and mount some huge RC car wheels. I would hot rod it with smaller tyres on the front either by having some suspension bolted into the gun drone bays or remove the drone bays all together to bring the wheels closer to the nose.

    It would also be kinda cool to cut out the under side of the nose and make the devil fish into a giant trike.

    Indeed you could leave the drones in place drop some suspension from them and put a roller wheel in between

    If you didn't want want the engine pods for anything else (warboss bike) you could 'bolt' them to the chassis and mount wheels inside them. That would let you use smaller wheels or even tracks from war tracks. though I would rather have another unit of tracks over a trukk.
