Wheels of...ricketty wood that would probably set on fire quite easily -WIP chariot

Hallo, more WIPS! This is a converted orc chariot. I didn't want a metal one from GW - metal models that size are terrible to move around and paint, and the tuskgors look a bit goofy. So my plan was to use the new boars as a replacement and make an eniterly plastic chariot.

Unfortunately, the new orc boars were a bit too big, and tipped the chariot itself. The boars which came with the chariot were too small and looked like baby boar, not really fitting for my beast hoard. So I'm compromising with warhounds, they're not the biggest but look much better than the standard likkle boars (who are now in a ungor filler).

As it was an Orc chariot, I had to "beastify" it. First, the riders were an ungor and a gor. I gave the ungor a whip from the corpse cart and the half horns head - technically, the crew is suppose to be a gor and bestigor, but using the "rule of cool" and since the metal chariot looks like an ungor and gor too, I don't think it matters much. The bestigor is a plastic gor with bestigor arms and head. I put a couple of spare minotaur shields on the wheels to make it extra beastly.

The model also didn't come with a chariot base, but GW have promised to send me a free one in the post so that's all gravy.

So, without further ado, this is my converted chariot so far!

As you can see...wee bit too big!

Ungor unit filler, isn't he cute?
