Default Trukk Boyz - my addition to the KJ Fundraiser

Righto, first update!

Camera had new batteries, which lasted like a minute, so I need to find the battery charger <_<

Sorry about the poor lighting - they're all a little dark, due to horrendous weather.

Anyway:

A rough idea of the ork's new armpit. Please not this has been smoothened somewhat since these photos were taken, just no proof due to no power :P


Armpit and colour. If you look at the right hand arm (or second photo), you'll get an idea of what my Ork skin will look like (Dark Angels Green, layered with Snot Green - simple) Pay no attention to the Ork - he's an old model from many moons ago that got enlisted to go under the brush :P


My 'stuffed Ork will have this Slugga arm - it's a cross between an axe holding arm and a slugga =)




Yet to arrive is the Nob, yet to be stuck together are the rest of the Boyz, and yet to be photographed is the Trukk!
This is, so you know, the first time I've ever used Greenstuff - I was expecting to balls the arm up and end up giving him sleeves :P

[hr]

Just done a little more work
Got photos, will upload tomorrow.

Basically, I know how I'm doing the side gunner - instead of using those horrible little bodies.
The gunner (gun yet to be made, really >_&gt is half clambering over the back, Shoota in hand, either yelling at the riotous Mob in the back, or shouting at whichever stupid Ork is in the Trukk behind :P
The driver hasn't been made yet, though he's having Burna Goggles and Driving Gloves =D

Not bad, but the red gun is very very flat.

Like I said, old model :P
All you want to look at is the skin on that arm :P


More photos up soon

Ork Side


Ork Side Back


Ork Other Side Back


Ork Other Side


Skin (another poor shot)


Ork Stone




Right - that's the pictures done.
Assume the Ork on the Trukk is the Gunner, turning round and giving the lads in the back some grief. The Rokkit Launcha aint on yet.

The stone is something that I made because I had some spare GS left, so I made a little mouldy thing and tada :P
I figure I could base it and use it as an objective marker or something

Ta
Thoughts on the whole Gunner thing?
I figured I'd make my own, since the ones supplied in the box are horrible, but you just can't fit two Orks seated side by side, so I figured one could be clambering out, while the driver is pushing a 150 mph :P

The driver will have his driving gloves and goggles on, of course :P


Also, anyone who mentions mould lines dies :P

Cheers

"Someone like me?"
Heh, you'd be amazed how little I know :P

The gunner is, for all intents and purposes done - I just need to clean/pin/fill him, which I will be able to do as soon as the driver is sorted - that way I know exactly where I'll need to place him (the gunner).
I also need to custom-build the Rokkit Launcha, which is the next thing to get sorted

Okay, don't have my Ork Codex yet so remind me, are the Trukk Boyz just numbered at two and they stay as the crew for the Trukk? Or are Trukk Boyz a separate unit that just happens to command the trukk?

I think it looks great, personally, gives me some ideas for DrowningNixis' Trukk that's coming in.

Mold li- I mean, uh...hi, Pollo!
*ahem*...

A large shot of the whole trukk would be good. The pics I can see are all closer pictures, one good far shot would be nice.

To answer the last two posts:
FOXX:
Yeah, the Trukk only has the driver and gunner. The Trukk Boyz are the 10-Ork Shoota/Slugga Mob that sit in the back.

1Shot: I'll get it done
Got a littel bit of progress done on the driver last night too =D
