I drew the name of a really good friend o' mine whose I.G plasmacide Chimera spam list has been terrorizing all the little kids at the store. Though to be fair, my Space Wolves are not too excited about facing his little metal boxes. Same goes for my Orkz.
I gifted him the joy of having to put together 20 Cadian Shock Troops and then a Lord Commissar to lead them. ;D
And then he gave me a Land Raider!
Turns out we drew each others' names!! ;D
Now.. where I've used my Land Raider a bunch is in games of Apocalypse.
As a Land Raider Achilles.
It has the word "thunder" in it, people!
So that's why I put the Land Raider kit in my list. The plan was to order the Forge World kit for the Land Raider Achilles and then convert it. But it wasn't until I sat on my computer all ready to order some resin crack until I realized that the only way to purchas the LR Achilles from Forge World is.. as a COMPLETE KIT. Basically they are selling a plastic Land Raider kit plus all the resin conversion parts that I actually need to make an Achilles. Well that sucks. Now I'm "stuck" with a Land Raider until Forge World decides to release only the conversion kit like they have done with all the other Land Raider variants. <_< I'm not spending all that cash in one big lump sum, you know? And I definitely don't want another Crusader or a Redeemer..
There's always the Orky option, though. Instead of waiting I could just unleash the Big Mek inside me and convert the Land Raider into (or is it "to"? Any Grammar Nazis out there?) an Ork Vehicle of some kind. Maybe a Battlewagon.. or something of the super heavy variety? Any ideas?
Maybe you guys could help me with this decision?
A) Wait for the Forge World conversion kit to come out and then make the Land Raider Achilles?
B) Convert it into/to an Ork vehicle?
Help me out, bros!
