Weirdboy Warbike

Just under a year ago, Games Workshop released some new plastic Skaven kits.

It wasn’t just me, but a lot of other Ork players looked at the new plastic Skaven Doomwheel and thinking, “now that could be an interesting Ork vehicle or bike!” I am thinking a Weird Boy transport option. Of course being plastic means that conversion should be easier than the previous metal version.

In the box there are three plastic sprues.

As you might expect, a fair number of the parts have Skaven style insignia and icons on them. I am thinking that carving these off the plastic parts shouldn’t be too hard. The other thing I could do is cover them up with Ork icons. I have the new brass ones form Forge World and a fair few plastic ones from the various Ork kits I have.

The engine will be a key conversion for this model, it’s at times like this that I wish Forge World would make more conversion bitz for the Orks. I think I will need to use some plastic tubing for this. I am intending to add to the conversion using parts from the Ork Trukk kit, though I am also thinking that I may need to get some Ork Bikes as well.

Is it just me?

Thinking about it.
