MFH Ishoo Twenty-Fiv: Modernising the Plastic Warbuggy

A lot of people find the idea of scratch building entire vehicles daunting. That's okay - it can be a big leap to take. But it does mean you run into a bit of a problem if you want an Ork speed freaks army; namely that the buggy kit dates from 2nd edition circa 1997 and the Wartrakk kit came out slightly later for Gorkamorka. They both look pretty dated, especially since the crews don't match the current range of Ork figures. Fortunately, it's not hard to get something like the old buggy to fit in to a modern 8th edition army. Here's Grot!
(note that this buggy kit came from Mad Juzzy the Flutist - the rear fenders had been used in a bike conversion and I had to rescue them; hence the paint).

And there you have it Hippo Fans! It really is that simple to update a kit that's six editions old to fit in with the modern aesthetics of the orks!
