Looted Wagons 13

I know.

'No more Looted Wagons for a while...'

'Will work on my own Ork/Militia projects...'

So anyway i've been commissioned to build three Looted Wagons which I have now started work on.

I managed to get hold of three Leman Russ tanks off eBay which were in a good state and for a decent price.

The request was for three 'Destroya' type along the lines of these two Looted Wagons I did previously:



This will be a new thing for me as normally I would only build one vehicle at a time and I just don't do multiples. The only reason I did two Destroya's was because due to the second one being for the Bell of Lost Souls article.

However by giving each one something different and varying the look within the Destroya' style I hope the project will be enjoyable as building three vehicles which are completely different.

The basic pre-loot work has now started, this covers breaking the vehicle down and stripping paint. Only once this is done will I start to add to what is left.


I hoped to have them stripped today, but due to real life issues (including the repercusions of a leaking roof) and running out of Fairy Power Spray I couldn't get the paint off them. I hope tomorrow will see that done so that I can start cutting a gluing styrene next week.

Not a huge post I know, but I thought it would be nice to get the ball rolling on this one. Once styrene starts to go on i'll do another update.

  1. Put them in the spray when you get it, under the leak in the roof, that way it does some of the work for yer!

    1. Well thankfully the leak itself has been sorted. It is the clean up that is being a bitch.

    2. Always is - had that happen here about a year and a half ago while the wife was out of town for work for the better part of a week.

      Anyway, what do you ask as a commission fee for these Orky fings? (My wife has an Orky army on the go)

    3. Well if you are interested once these three are done you can drop me a message and we can discuss the possibility.

  2. These will be great when completed, like the rest of your Ork work (and yes I still have that moon to fit to my stompa, when I finally finish painting it!).

  3. Cheers for the comments. I'll be stripping paint this evening (after the rugby finishes) so I should be starting on the actual looting process soon.

  4. That's a bummer about the roof - never a fun project. Really looking forward to seeing what you come up with for these, Gotta admit you've got me thinking about doing another Ork army. Must... Resist!

    1. Why resist? In the long run you know you will so you might as well just accept it and start it now.
