This is now my general blog of conversions, kit-bashes, and scratch-builds. It will be focused mainly on Orks, Imperial Guard, and Imperial civilians.

-----------

I fell in love with Orks back when 40K Second Edition was shiny and new. Then GorkaMorka came out and I was in conversion heaven. Unfortunately, my gaming group dispersed and real world priorities meant that my Orks got shelved.

Then a few years ago the revamped Ork Trukk piqued my interest, and I have been slowly getting back into the modeling game. I have been lurking on this forum for some time, scavenging tips and ideas from the many talented members here and I hope that my conversions might inspire some of you. Comments or questions are most welcome.

These are some of my old school Orks that I did many years ago. I think my abilities have gotten a wee bit better since then, but I'll leave that up to you to judge.




Here is one of my trukks. It's not completely glued together yet to make painting easier. The driver was primed separately and his right arm isn't primed at all (it's magnetized to allow a variety of weapons). The bed has been lengthened in order to fit over the battlewagon treads. In fact, all of my trukks have been lengthened, as I like the look better (and I can fit more boyz in the back – important in GorkaMorka).


The reinforced ram is magnetized, allowing me to swap it out with an ordinary bumper. In addition, the front panel is magnetized to allow me to add glyph plates for whichever clan I want to play. My first four trukks (two with wheels, two with tracks) will be painted a generic rusty colour and will have magnetized panels for clan-specific glyph plates.


Here are the clan glyph plates. I will eventually make a mold and cast several of these in resin.


Here you can clearly see the magnets for the glyph plates.


The gun and gunner's arms are all magnetized, allowing for easy weapon swaps.


The gunner can be removed entirely and replaced with an ordinary boy or nob.


The bed itself is magnetized, eventually allowing me to swap it out with a large gun or a fifth wheel.


Stay tuned for more trukks.

Here is my second trukk. I didn't put the driver in as he was being uncooperative. I think I have to shave the little tab off the bottom of his feet to get him to fit in properly.


Both the glyph plate and boarding ladder are attached by magnets.


This shows the magnets, as well as a hole in the ladder attachment from my first attempt at putting in a magnet. These close-ups also really show where I need to fill in some gaps.


This shows the magnetized front plate. And some mould lines on the exhausts that I need to scrape.


This shows some of the magnetized front bumpers I've made. And some cat hairs. Static cling and curious cats are the bane of my existence.


The gas cans are just sitting in there loose until I get around to painting them.


The magnetized glyph plate on the other side.


The bed itself is magnetized, which will allow me to swap it out for a big gun or a fifth wheel (a properly sized one, not the sad little one that comes with the trukk).


D'oh! I just realized I used the same bed in these pics as my first trukk. Oh well, aside from the side panels, it's basically the same.

This is my third Ork trukk. I have started the painfully slow process (for me, anyway) of painting this one.


Spot for magnetized glyph plate.


Still a little gap-filling to do...


The headlights were a pain to make, but I like the end result.


More cat hairs. And I see a couple of spots where I still have to shave off the leftover sprue attachment nibs.


I was experimenting with the sponge method of painting to put some rust shades on the side panels.


Need a tow?


Experimenting with the Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust paints. So far I'm liking them. I especially like how Typhus Corrosion covers my many gluing smudges.


Comments and questions are welcome.

Nice modeling Zogg, really like the paint effect on the trukk bed too! Any chance of a group shot? All this is encouraging me to get working on my truck kits!

I'm liking the corrisive look Zogg very effective, keep posting can't wait for the final finish.

One question though I'm starting to use magnets (when they arrive in the post) does painting them effect the magnatisum? & have you just glued them in the holes or used anything else to keep them in there? Last thing I want is to rip it out when changing arms (I'm using them on some killa kans)

Thanks all!

@ Urtyork Rotfang
So far, it appears that primer doesn't inhibit the 'stickiness' of the magnets, but we'll see if that changes with some layers of paint and sealer. Of course, the items I'm attaching are pretty light, there might be a more noticeable effect with heavier things like killa kan arms. But if you use larger magnets, you should be good.

I just use superglue to attach the magnets, although I have had a couple that stayed in when I did a test fit to see if the hole was deep enough. Which can be a pain when the hole isn't deep enough. I've found that it's better to have the hole be a little too deep than not deep enough. As long as you don't push the magnet all the way in, that is. If you're making a number of interchangeable items, you want to make sure you keep the polarity consistent.





@ Boyz "R" Us
As requested. I left the drivers off as it's a bit of a pain to get them sitting right. And yes, build trukks. We need moar trukks.







And some progress on trukk number 4.

Thanks Theophony.

The sidewalls of each trukk has a spot where I can put a magnetized mount for a wrecking ball or big grabber.

What size magnets are those? They look super tiny . The magnetic weapon mounts look great as well. I'm putting a link in my blog or your page, there's a few Ork lovers hat might swing by, and quite a few scratch builders as well.

Wow, thanks Theo. I'm a big fan of your work, especially the Necromunda scenery and janitorial servitors.

The magnets are indeed tiny. And fiddly. They're 1/16" diameter by 1/32" thickness. Unfortunately the batch I have include a lot of defective ones where the nickel plating came off and the magnets pretty much disintegrated into tiny little filings, which stick to the other magnets. Each time I want to use one, I have to spend time rolling it around on a piece of tape to pull off the filings, then inspecting it to see if the plating is about to come off.

I get bitz from so many sources, it's difficult to remember where any specific item came from, but I'm pretty sure the six-shooter is from Zinge Industries.

Good luck Urtyork with your fun with magnets.

Used the underside of the bed to do some more playing around with Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust. Some interesting effects...

Looks very good, but a little dark to me. Not sure, maybe a very very light dry brush with a metal, just to highlight. Like the texture, and does look effective.

Agreed, lovely but a bit of metal along those sharp edges, as rust rubs back away, would work a treat.

Agreed. It is a wee bit dark. Although for the underside of the bed, I'm fine with that. And aside from some dings from rocks being kicked up by the tires, I don't know that there would be much bare metal showing from wear. Now the side panels on the other hand...

Speaking of side panels... some more experimenting. This is quite literally a "test bed" for painting. Supervised by one of my "helpers", Silk.


I painted one of the panels Astronomican Grey, then dabbed on some Typhus Corrosion and brushed on some Ryza Rust. It didn't come out quite as planned, but it is interesting.


I added a little Runefang Steel along some edges, and brushed some grey weathering chalk onto the bottom edge. These trukks are intended mainly for playing GorkaMorka, but on a former agriworld that is now a barren wasteland beset by ash storms and acid rain.


I'm getting closer to the look I want, but there's still something missing. Suggestions?

Not where I should be

I am far from an expert on this.

Two suggestions.

1st I personally use a more orange than red rusty colour. I use hobgoblin orange, but that is ancient.

2nd is washes. Throw a watered down coat of sepia or earthshade over it. they add depth.

Please remember I am no expert here. If you are going for ash waste type I would say go with Angrax earthshade.

Please correct me people.
