Junka Trukk

It’s not uncommon for Feral Ork tribes to capture vehicles left by other forces. These vehicles will have been heavily damaged, and it’s rare that a Feral Ork tribe will either have the mechanical expertise or spare parts needed to get them going. But that does not stop the Tribes from cobbling things together with their boilers and boars to make surprisingly effective war machines.

The Junka Trukk is a model from the Epic Armageddon range.┬áHaving a Trukk model hanging around…

I decided that I would see if I could build a 28mm Junka Trukk. It would be more Trukk than the Epic version, but the idea would be the same, cobbling things together with their boilers and boars to make surprisingly effective war machines.

I built the Trukk according to the instructions, but added two extra parts, a Rhino frontal armour plate to the front and a Land Raider top front door to the rear. I had these parts left over from using resin Forge World doors.

I then added a Rhino side door as a roof to the cab of the trukk. I also added the trukk’s frontal armour plate to the Rhino front armour plate I had already stuck into place.

I did think at this stage of using it as a Gunwagon of some kind using a pair of lascannons, however I think the lascannons looked a little too high-tech!
