Ork Big Trakk with Supa Kannon

This Ork Big Trakk with Supa Kannon was part of the Ork Shanty Town display at GamesDay 2010.

I have been making my own Big Trakk and it’s a nice if somewhat complicated kit to put together. I am not going to arm it though with the Supa Kannon and will probably use a “normal” Kannon. According to Tony Cottrell at the Forge World seminar at GamesDay 2010, it would appear that Forge World have “finished” with the Orks for a while and will be doing lots of other stuff before they return to the Orks (it at all).

Of course what we still have to see from either Forge World or Games Workshop is a new buggy or wartrakk. There are images in the Forge World Imperial Armour book of a new design of a buggy, but so far no real concrete evidence that any new model is going to be released.

Epic Kult of Speed

I can’t believe that my Epic 40000 Ork army is nearly ten years old now! I do have Epic models which are older, but I used them for Dirtside. It was Epic 40000 which I really liked as a ruleset for Epic.
Here are some of my Ork forces, part of a Kult of Speed, in the main buggies and wartrakks (though you can see a Skorcha in the background as well)

When is a buggy not a buggy? When it's a trukk!

The original Ork trukk was released for Gorkamorka and was (at the time) just the right size for the smaller Orks which were also released for Gorkamorka.
With the release of the (previous) Ork Codex, it was used again as a trukk, even though the Orks had grown in size.
It did mean that the driver and gunner looked a little on the small size and not in keeping with the new Orks plastics and metals.
With the new Codex released this year, we see a nice new trukk model which is much much bigger than the old trukk. Interestingly we didn’t see a new Wartrakk or a new Warbuggy which was a pity. Even a slight modification with new crew would have been nice.
Of course who defines what is a trukk and what isn’t? Few ork vehicles would be identical due to the way the Ork vehicles are “constructed”.
I am considering that with the new (bigger) trukks that I may relegate my current Ork trukks and define them as warbuggies. Now I don’t have any warbuggy models as I don’t like the model, so it’s not as though I have a few warbuggies hanging around which would need to be re-defined as well.

Of course I now need to get some of the new Trukks…
