Welcome to Librarium Online!
In looking to start another force, I wonder into this forum with a question.
I don't have the codex yet though was wondering if there was still an entry for looted vehicles. If yes, are they any good in the current codex?
I ask as I have quite a bit of used tank kits, and prob can make some decent looted vehicle models out of them.
Thanks in advance.
As of now, there is an entry for a looted vehicle in the ork codex, but it is now a vehicle with set stats, instead of the orks being able to loot a vehicle and use it's stats. (I wish I could use and orky basilisk but that sadly isn"t the case). However, the entry in the ork codex for the "Looted Wagon" has not disappointing me so far, in fact, I love the randomness of it and my boomgun (a gun option for the looted wagon) is my favorite weapon to sneak into games and see my opponents faces when I say that I'm firing a Str 8 AP 3 large blast template from 36" away. It makes marine players cry as I instant kill (The strength of the gun is double the marine's toughness) there tactical squad and they don't even get armor saves.
It can also transport units (as long as it doesn't have the aforesaid boomgun upgrade) and equip big shootas, a skorcha (read: heavy flamer) and various standard Ork vehicle upgrades. I also wish we could loot other armies' tanks and use their stats, but for the points the looted wagon is very good value too.
