A few weeks back i was taken by the idea of constructing and all loted ork boy army. using rhinos as transports, some big tanks as battle wagons and so on. but now seeing the new codex its completely dropped the whole idea of looting which really annoys me.
Im just wondering is it possible to still use looted vehicles but say they are trucks and just use there rules. Will GW let me play?
thanks to anyone who can help and has the same feelings as me. I really like the idea of looting and the whole concept.
WIP tau project coming soon.
I'm not familiar with the old codex admittedly, but it seemed like looting was still optional. I plan on giving my Orks a good amount of Tau gear (from the old battleforce). If nothing else for looks, I don't see a problem with using some slightly modded looks and ork weapon stats.
I think it'll be fun.
You would probably need to get your opponents permission when playing, but still there shouldn't be any problem with using a "looted" vehicle as a Trukk as long as it you stick to trukk rules and have all the equiptment you need etc. WYSIWYG style.
Unfortunately, looting is out. So therfore, people like me who play deffskullz or those who play Baddmoonz will have very little to keep them happy with. The new rules is the use of an overglorified trukk with a cannon mounted on it for I think plus 70 or plus 90 points. I havent tinkered with these yet, but as of now, I'm especially disappointed.
I'm still gunna bring my armored company to mega battles, but I think they're pretty much gunna be retired now.
I would like to know the specifics here also. I had recently decided that deff skulls seemed like me and I intend on having many "looted" vehicles that are simply ork 'upgrades' on the original. Such as my space marine dreadnought which is clearly driven by an ork (his head is sticking out the front and the assault cannon has been deftly replaced with a large hammer). I don't think it is necessary to say that you have to use the looted wagon rules, just make it look suitably like it is an ork trukk that was at some stage a rhino. Cut the top off and give it a big shoota. Nobody will mind if your whole army is themed this way, its only if you show up and use completly unmodified vehicles from other races that people will complain.
ok thanks evryone. I think ill still go forward with a plan for this looted army should be great fun.
WIP tau project coming soon.
The new looted wagons have a huge variety of options, and starts at only 30 points. My only complaint being that they're a little fragile at 11 armor, but when you add the boomgun, which is a 36" range str 8 ap 3 ordnance, the whole wagon only costs 105 points. Or it can be a transport with two big shootas and a heavy flamer for 60 points. Plus there's nine other useful non-weapon upgrade options.
Finally, as the others said, if you give rhino's and other various vehicles an orky look to them it's 100% legal to use in GW tournaments. You'd only really have problems if you've got a rhino painted up in ultramarine colors with a marine poking out the top.

My trukks are converted rhinos with huge engines on the back and a boarding area built up top to hold the boys. I didn't like the weedy trukks honestly, and needed something that screamed ork.
The looted vehicle option really isn't my favorite, but is a ork players dream to convert what you want. You can really add to it as you like, and the low armor value is perfect considering the fact that it would be a destroyed vehicle orks are trying to get moving.

I´m building a looted rhino as a transport for my burna boyz with their meks, should look plenty orky and be a characterful addition!
As a side note, posting weapon stats and point costs isn´t very popular at this forum..just a heads up! Are you from sweden by any chance?(I live in gothenburg)
