Trukk Conversion? Trukk Conversion!

Post by Guildenstern » Mon May 09, 2016 3:30 pm

Ok, so, getting into Orks, and while I haven't been a huge fan of doing conversions, cuz I dunno what I'm doing, I kept looking at my son's Necron ghostark whilst I was making/painting it...

And you know I want to do a pirate themed ork army. You know what the prow and even really the ribs look like on the Ghostark? Especially with those guns on each side? Yup, a Viking Ship you got it!!

So, I'm trying to figure what I might can do, once I get another Ghostark model, to help it look like a trukk? I want to (obviously) put wheels on it. After that I'm kinda, yeah um, I dunno. Has anyone done something similar? I didn't find anything on google, specifically to really help (except more how to pleas lol)

When you have a suicide knob on your tractor, it's serious business.

And so it begins! went to our local goodwill and spent a few bucks to get the wheels on these bad boys. Not sure a lot of the chassis will be useful, we'll see. I can already see a looted gun from a doomsday ark on top >:) well maybe lol it's a thought
