Last time I told you how I traded the Eldar Codex for a Chaos Rhino and the AoBR Warboss (pro painted). I had never built a real model before (even as a kid!) and I was excited for the challenge. It started by following the instructions until I had the base of the Rhino in tact and then I started to Kustomize!
I spent some time looking at images of other looted Rhinos on Google. That is where I got the idea for teeth. I did not have any plasticard, so I had to use stuff from the Ork bits box. I took the basic knives from the kit and cut them to size.
I decided I wanted my Looted Wagon to have two big shootas and a Boomgun because I like the idea of dropping pie-plates on people. Instead of a traditional mounted gun I thought it would be more Orky to have a guy hanging off the side. I got the chain from the Chaos bits in the Rhino box and used a lighter to heat and bend them into the right shape.
Next up was the Boomgun. I wanted something big and silly looking. I was going to use the shell of a dry erase marker but I found this instead:
That is a dowel used to hammer on the hubcaps to my Son's wagon. Lucky for me it was a perfect fit! If you seein the picture, I was going to have a gunner and a driver right next to each other but it didn't fit quite right.
I like the detail of the blasted door on the side.
I ended up putting the driver on the top of the Boomgun housing which looks great. I'll get some more pictures of its current state. I have finished adding all of the details and primed it. All I need to do know is learn how to paint and it should look pretty sweet. In the meantime I am scratch building a couple of things that will have a big impact on the tabletop. If you have any comments or ideas just let me know. Thanks for reading!
