Default Old Trukk - New Trukk size comparison

Awright; a while ago I saw the question pop up how big exactly the new Trukk is compared to the old version (I think it was somewhere on the rumours board).

Well, I received my Spearhead today for Christmas (we had a green AND a white Christmas where I live... ), and I`ve worked until half past one in the morning to put the Trukk together. After some digging in my Bitz Box, Ive found an old Trukk (from Gorkamorka).

A couple of minutes later, I had these pics (sorry for somewhat bad lightning; they were taken half an hour after midnight... ;D):







As you can see, it is nearly possible to transport the old one in the new one! Definitely a great model.

Aw, dang; Ive forgotten to test how many of da Ladz can take a comfortable (if somewhat bumpy) ride in this thing...

No matter, building this beast was great fun; you start with the carriage and build your way up. It took me some two hours to get this far - the model itself is incredibly detailed, with loads of small gubbinz which serve no other function than looking cool - and it is still not finished! I could go on and add boarding planks, and other various bits and equipment! Lots of work for a 40-points-ish model, but worth it.

My worst nightmare is actually dropping it during a game, since it looks very fragile (and it probably is, too)... Well, it IS AV10 around...

Here a couple of further detail shots - one showing the gunner (unfortunately, again, there is only a Big Shoota in the box; no Rokkit Launcha available...), the other a further close-up of the Trukk itself.




Enjoy.

Cheers,
-Bone

PS: If you want more pics of the new beasties, just ask; I think Ill build the new bikes sometime tomorrow, and the Lootas/Burnas will follow soon.

Looks to be about the right size. The old Ork Wartrukk is based on the smaller Gorka Morka size of Orks. It is a great looking model and I intend to get a few after the Holiday season.

Karma point for a good post!

Best Regards,

It is kinda funny that the old trukk is aprox 1/4 the size of the new trukk....or atleast it is to me

I love the front, the teeth and air intake are pure genius.

You can actually fit 5 Orks comfortably into the hold...

But without bases and some modelling work, I do believe that you could fit all twelve of "da Ladz" in there.

Since I`m a bit disappointed that there are no new Warbuggies, I`m already making plans to cannibalize two of dem Trukks to make three Buggies (which should be easy, since you get three axles per Trukk); the only weak point are the six Rokkit Launchas I`ll need...

Yeah, that is sad...the buggies and traks should've been replaced too, they just don't look right next to that thing. :-\
