Forge World Ork Halftrakk Flatbed

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

The flatbed of my Ork Halftrakk was sprayed with a Humbrol brown paint. I then gave it a wash of Devlan Mud. Not sure if I like using this wash over the usual brown ink and paint wash I usually use. I usually use a wash consisting of brown ink, paint and water.

I added some more washes to the body of the Half Trakk using Devlan Brown and Badab Black.

Next stage will be a drybrush.

Forge World Ork Halftrakk Chassis

I added the front “bumper” and frontal armour to the chassis. The chassis was then given a drybrush with Boltgun Metal.

Quite pleased with the result so far.

What I do like about this model is how it turn the Trukk into something a bit heavier and more robust.

I added the front “bumper” and frontal armour to the chassis. The chassis was then given a black undercoat using spray paint. I then drybrushed the whole chassis with Tin Bitz.

Here is the Halftrakk with the plastic flatbed and crew area added to the model to see how it would look.

Forge World Ork Halftrakk

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

January 2008 saw the release of the new Ork Trukk. I had expected to see some Forge World conversion kits relatively quickly, however though we saw the Flakk Wagon at GamesDay 2008, it wasn’t until July 2009 that we saw the first actual Forge World variant Ork Trukk kit, the Ork Half Trakk. What you get in the box, a complete shrink wrapped plastic Trukk kit and a bag of resin. As you might expect the resin consists of the wheels, tracks and wheels for the tracks. There is also a new engine which replaces the plastic one included with the kit.

So the model goes together quite well with the plastic Trukk components. You could of course not use the provided resin front wheels and use the plastic ones you get with the Ork Trukk. What is nice is that as you get the whole Trukk kit, you get lots of spare wheels to use with other models or for conversions.

I had very little warpage with this model, though as you can see there is a gap in the tracks.

The only problem that was (probably) shrinkage with the tracks, so I used some plastic rod to cover the gap in the tracks.

I do like the resin engine provided, much better than the plastic one. You kind of wish Forge World would make some Ork conversion packs with engines and the like.
