You don't use any of the statistics of the original tank. That's the way it used to work, but with the new rules, you only use the weapons in the new ork codex. However, since you're allowed to use the looted vehicles, and most ork weapons don't have a standard design, you can basically say that any gun on the tank is whatever gun you want it to be.does it use the wepons on the tank? or the stats on the looted wagon if you dont have a booom gun do you use the wepons on the vehcile that you chose
That's cool. Virtually any marine vehicle will do. I wouldn't worry too much about making a skorcha. Just pick a main gun and call it a skorcha. That's the beauty of looted vehicles.I am going to be running three immolators as my looted wagons, after I make them orky of course. (They are gonna be my transports for my burna boyz.) That way I don't have to fuss with making some skorchas. Already done for me. It was that or the hellhound, but I just figured the rhino body seems to feel so perfect to loot. Lets face it, I don't know how many beakies leave these things laying around as da orks run them from the field.
The only catch being that it no longer has indirect fire. It's true though, you can play the exact same model as you did before. It just isn't as good a unit as it used to be (although it is considerably cheaper).i'm still using the basilisk that i was using for the old codex, just now instead of an earthshaker cannon, it's now a bomm gun. When I orginally put the tank together i made it where the cannon will slide out. So if i don't want the cannon its now a transport.
Has he considered simply converting it to a battlewagon. Landraiders are big vehicles and with a bit of work make very good ones. I put a death roller, missile launchers, big guns, a large transport deck, a suped up griffon mortar and rickety lookout tower on mine and it looks brilliant. :drinking: (no real reason for it just like the smilie)kinda sucks too. I have a friend who has this Land Raider that he spent a whole lot of time converting into a looted land raider, its got all kinds of orkiness on it. The guy really hates space marines too, which he represented by having verious bloody space marines torsos and parts against the front of the vehicle, its quite detailed.
But now its statline is suddenly much less impressive then its appearance, kinda sad.
