    A Cheaper way to do Chariots.

    With the new rules on Chariot units and awesome flying Pump Wagons I can see alot of people fielding more, which is expensive. So, this is how I'm getting around it..............

    great tutorial!
    I'm currently working on my first proper conversion. Turning a Giant into a Giant orc.
    This is the first time i've used greenstuff, except for gap filling and have so far given him bigger muscles, pointy ears and Orcish tusks/teeth.
    I was looking for a way of making wooden platforms, want one to go on his shoulder for a goblin archer to stand on!
    This tutorial is just what I needed
    I'm not to keen on the GW chariots myself (or the expense of buying a few of them) so I'll have a go at building a couple once the Not-so-Jolly Green giant is finished.

    Aye, definately put pics up when you've done that!! Here's my giant if you're after some ideas. There is tutorials and more pics (he is finished a couple of pages later) of sculpting work that might help or give you ideas! http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...be-orcs-8.html (Da Iron Gob tribe! - Orcs)

    I'm not keen on the GW chariots either. They just seem to well made and manufactured to be 'orcy'. Especially seeing as they have no 'techy' Orcs. Plus, no two Orcs chariots would look the same and the old boars look stupid. This way I can make two chariots from one box of Boar boys that will look different and feel orcy!


    If I have time I'll make some pump waggons as well. I want at least 4.

    That chariot looks really nice! I like the standing boards ( that protect the riders) especially lots of cool little details.

    are those wheels made of potatoes? xD i pitty the boar that has to pull a thing with rock wheels, thats gonna tear the wooden frame apart heheh.

    It allways bothered me that those silly giants are pink-skins! im going for something completely different myself(<-- see avatar) , but an orc/ogre like giant is really cool

    Cheers guys. I will be making another chariot and some Pump Wagons in the near future so there will be loads of Green stuffing and Orcy conversions going on!!!

    I'm thinking about doing a GIANT squigg Not sure what as. It could be a Giant or it could be used as a mount for a Snotling pump Fortress. No idea!! Damn Orcs have made me go conversion made!
    EDIT: what's that? Use the Spider Rules you say............why that IS a good idea..........

    Digger: They're made from Pink Foam!! Potatoes would have gone mouldy and the Mrs would have had a go at me from stealing them from the Kitchen. Plus, lets be honest, that would just we a little bit weird!!!

    Speaking of edible models: I used choclate powder once, to flock a piece of scenery (a barrow) and spraypainted it. worked perfectly for 10 years! and then while i was moving out of parents' house i put it in the attic a few days, in that time the mice had stripped it bare >.<
