I'm thinking you could cobble together something like the cars from Mad Max with engines and wheels from the ork trukk sprue and vyper jet bike canopies.

perhaps going to your local toystore and looking for some good sized car models, rip them to pieces, and stick em back together, using mainly it's outer shell and chasis..?

Mad Max themed Imperial Guard army = IG Army just raised on colonized orc world. (I bet you were the Warmaster who just get rid that world out of those greenskins :P )
0. Mechanized infantry or Armoured Company
1. sports the heavily use of looted weapons, including the re-looted Leman Russes :lol: , just make it looks orky, even the Imperial symbols, the winged skulls, it should be made that as crude as Orc glyph.
2. Autoguns made out of orc shootas
3. No uniforms! you may use chaos marauders (fantasy) bits but don't forget to remove chaosies
4. Trofies using orc bitz
5. Halftrack chimaera made out of ork gunwagon, lotz of applike armour
6. Red paintings. Salamanders shall get red ones :lol:

that would be cool, an orc hunter type force. An imperial world cut out from imperuim cause of weirdboyz jaming the signal, three or four generations later what was the pdf is regressed into a ork like force with crude imperial glyphs on their equipment. Along comes the imperium with an expedition army to [I Swear Too Much] out why the said planet has not paid it's tithes. Mini crusade helps tip the scales and the imperium draws its troops from 'da two-headed eagle tribe'

Consider the idea STOLEN!

Dude, this is what you MUST do:
Get an O scale car (you can use these for 40K anyway) or 1/43 toy car
Take a tire, vaseline it, and run it through GS.
When that sets, press it into some more GS.
This can be your mold to make....

...wait for iiiiit...


tire-tread shoulder pads! Yeah!!

Seriously, get a copy of GorkaMorka rules and have some [Warning No Swearing].

Also, IMEX Robogear junk is cheap and with some chopping might make some crazy Mad Max vehicles.

They look more like just Orc looted vehicles to me... I think you may be better off going with some non-GW models to base your tanks off of, maybe some Stuarts and do them up like TankGirls.

The Orc glyphe on the dozer blade doesn't help either...
Can't beat that price though.

Bit of a limited travers on those tank turrets.

As said above, they're still very orc-like.

I would think that Mad Max style vehicles would have a little Orkyness to them since they are all patched together from what ever they could [I Swear Too Much].
It is true that going too Orky would be bad but you need to make the vehicles look ill maintained.

I think adding Ammo to them, barrels and armour and "cloth/[Warning No Swearing]" to them mite bring out the mad max theme well 2/3. and having troops hanging on the sides, with guns waving etc, big engine poping out from some were,

but at mo they look very Orky

*this is making my mind think of starting somthing like this*

Stowage. I think you could make them look more cobbled together if you went with lots of stowage, you know, tarps, bundles, [Warning No Swearing] drums, ammo boxes, etc, stashed everywhere on the outside of the tank. (without making it look too orky)

these aint imperial
these are orky
no doubt
don't deny it, mad max is the spawn of orks and gorkamorka
as said, mad max is orky, no imperial

Personally I'd go out, buy a whole heap of model car kits and start going nuts swapping body panels between them and such. Scrap the tanks, they look like Ork looted vehicles. If you want the Mad Max look, I'd put a Battle Cannon in a cradle-like mounting on a half-track vehicle with an armoured cabin, kinda like an Ork Gunwagon but cleaner done, human ramshackle handiwork instead of Ork.

^ for orc trucks for chimera. don't forget to make it with covered tops. well you may make it looks like technical but don't forget that Chimera is not open topped.
you may use existing truck frontal mount shoota as Heavybolter (because it looks close! in fact it looks like 2nd edition IG HBolters :lol: )
