Trukks are designed to transport mobs of choppa-wielding Boyz into combat as quickly as possible. The original Ork Trukk model was designed for Gorkamorka, and then became part of Warhammer 40K with Codex Orks. It was really way too small and needed to be updated, and updated it was back in January 2008 with the release of the new Ork Trukk.
I revisited another of my Ork Trukks in an earlier blog post.
The model was constructed as per the instructions, Generally I try and build as much of the model as possible to avoid having to glue painted parts together.
The chassis and wheels were the first parts I stuck together. As I had got the Forge World Ork Halftrakk I had some spare wheels, so rather than use the mix that is provided, I doubled up the wheels using the “squarer” wheels. This should give my Trukks a more diverse look.
The chassis was painted black and the flatbed was given a brown spray.
I am keeping the back of this truck quite clear of boarding ramps and armour as it will be a mobile weapons platform.
See how I made the Trukk.
