January 2008 saw the release of the new Ork Trukk. I had expected to see some Forge World conversion kits relatively quickly, however though we saw the Flakk Wagon at GamesDay 2008, it wasn’t until July 2009 that we saw the first actual Forge World variant Ork Trukk kit, the Ork Half Trakk.
This has a considerable amount of resin for the tracks, new front wheels and a new engine.
I had very little warpage with this model, but I did have a shrinkage probem with the tracks, which I fixed with plastic rod.
The chassis was then given a black undercoat using spray paint. I then drybrushed the whole chassis with Tin Bitz. The flatbed was sprayed with a Humbrol brown paint. I then gave it a wash of Devlan Mud. I added some more washes to the body of the Half Trakk using Devlan Brown and Badab Black.
The engine needs work and the whole thing also needs more weathering.
Then there is the main weapon and the krew.
