So I was adding up the prices of a few things I need to buy to start my KoS army, and I was a little thrown off by the cost of Trukks. Yea yea, I know, $20 isn't that bad, but when you need 3-5 of them for a decent army, PLUS buggies and boyz...
So I started thinking about conversions from cheaper models, GW or otherwise. I figure that a flatbed truck model, with a few Ork sprue additions (armor plates, maybe hacking the roof of the cab off, that kinda thing) would work. And using different model kits for each trukk would make the army look a lot more ramshackle.
Anyone else convert their Trukks? And if so, with what?
i haven't converted a trukk cuz i only need 1 and it came with the battle force, but i have seen some conversions. they are on http://www.nightserpent.com/orks.html so take a look at em and maybe u can do something like that
On a similar note, does anyone know what scale that 40K vehicles are at? I believe it's 1:35, but I'd rather ask before buying non-GW truck kits.
wow that is an amazing attlewagon. Probably the best 1 ive ever seen. GJ
I love the Kustom Force field conversion. I also love that forgeworld battlewagon, brillant conversion job on it though.

A FW battlewagon with lots of add ons, briliant!
Seriously, Dreachon, do you ever post anything other than paraphrasing the post before you?
Anyways, I guess I'll just have to buy one Trukk, use the pieces to mark up some plasticard, and make my own duplicates. At least they're so ramshackle that I don't have to worry about exactness
Basically all you need is a platform for the orks to stand on and some guns and wheels.. It looks like great fun to convert trukks, nothing to be unhappy about!
I think the standard GW trucks suck anyway, the drivers are too small and you can only fit like three orks into it...
BTW, http://www.nightserpent.com/orks.html is a great link, Xtreemedoomedass! Now it's officially bookmarked

I know this question was answered before, I remembered seeing it but I cant find it. So anyway, do Orks acually have to be in the Warturkk? I know you cant fit 10 of them, so I was wondering. They cant be shot at if you put them in a warturkk correct?
