I have a spare battlecanon and a spare hellfire cannon, For a Looted wagon do you guys think it would look good and fit to use a rhino chasis and fit on of those guns in there? And then of corse make it look suitibly orky.
Also do you think orking up a vindicator wold work?
Alrighty and the last question is barring any of those what do you think makes the best Looted Wagon?
"We are Retribution Personified!"
Yes, either/all of those options work nicely for a Looted Wagon. Just remember that it is opened topped unless you give it an Armoured Top. So technically if you use a rhino and don't cut open the top you would be required to take Armoured Top. though I generally take that upgrade anyway with a Boomgun. That said, that would only matter when officially playing WYSIWYG.
As for the best Looted Wagon, my favorite is the IG Basilisk. I have converted mine so that the gun platform is removable. This allows me to slide it into place for a Boomgun Wagon, or remove it and use the same model as a transport. I also plan to construct an armoured top for the model so I can swap it on and off as needed.
EDIT: I should note that I am further converting my gun platform so that it will swivel. I am going to try using actual gears with a crank to make it swivel That is the only bad part of using a Basi, the Boomgun isn't turret mounted, so if you are immobilzed you could be in trouble.

Just make it look orky. attatching a giant cannon to a rhino would do just fine, and even look pretty funny.
For my looted wagon, I glued a ork bike chassis to the top of a hellhound missing a turret, and then I put a baneblade cannon onto the bike, so it acts as a mount for the cannon.
And then orkified it. This is the most important step. Make it spiky and orky, and you'll be fine.
I couldn't think of anything funny, smart, or witty to say, so I said this.
I been bought my predator as looted wagon so i use my ork boyz etc bosspole to attach on my autocannon and tht means its waagh! i decide prepared get my deathskullz looted wagon as more powerful so i attach my heavy-bolters turrets on my predators for looking!
My first looted wagon was a rhino I bought and put together without looking at the instructions.
It's crooked, a little lopsided, and has openings in random places. Also, I wuzznt sure wot some of da tings wuz for, so I just glued 'em on whurever I woz at the minute. Then of course, smoke stacks and spikes and what-not.
Basically, think back to everything you know about tanks design, and then do the opposite.
i have hellfire cannon on my predator so i use my golden yellow on my tank then regant blue on metal on tank so tht i chose to hijack imperial fist predator with my boyz that i created a looted wagon for deathskullz. i decide i prefer Deathskullz cos its awsome! So i will buy IG Hellhound at the shop in blkpool where i live!
Funny you should mention this, my Boomwagon is an old Rhino I had, I cut a hole in the front, and stuck my left over Hellhammer cannon in it, Orked it up, now dubbed the Vindikatork it works fine. Has got a few laughs because it looks like the Mek in question reallty wanted to build a real Vindicator.
the armor for a looted wagon sure looks the same as a rhino...so I use rhinos.
the armor for a battlewagon sure looking the same as a leman russ...so I use russes
Take a look at my modeling, painting, and terrain blog
The Iron Cage
what i used i a chimera chassis and a battle cannon. just stick the turrett onto a 500ml fanta bottle lid and plasicard around it to give it the armoured look and voila...a looted boom gun.
i will post a pic of it...
