OOooooo... thanks for the pic, Z. I've not seen that before. Those are some big-ass mechanical sights. That gives me some more ideas for detailing! I had some bitz for sights, but they've just been tossed in favor of something far more outlandish like this real-world example. :lol

 

And yeah, much to everyone's relief, I am just getting started on the gunz. And there's more good news. Today I realized that the cab was bumping the edges of the gunz on rotation and it occurred to me that I had pushed the bed too far forward. An easy mistake to fix and I've now got almost an additional quarter inch to pack gunz into! Woot!

 

Building hopper boxes for the mini-gunz now. I promise the next update will be visually more exciting. :biggrin

Flakka Dakka Trukk, Moar Dakka Edition...

trukk_05.jpgOkay, I'm real proud... uh chuffed... with how this turned out. Not to say that I won't add glyphage or other tidbits of detailing, but the turret and gunz are done (minus final gluing) and I'm  happy with 'em. I think they'll even pop more after paint which will bring up some of the odd details (like the fire extinguisher), although that's probably a couple weeks away (given other projects getting in the way).

:thumbs Weatherman predicts a slight chance of Dakka in the air tonight! Good stuff going on there Mad Grot. Great work on the sights. Sorry to give you more work than you already have, but  that grot carrying the blunderbuss sorta pointed down,  ( Double checking grots that I have access to there's with both hands on a wrench that would work better w/ less work.) with a little bit of work that might turn into a shovel or a broom & you could have him on the deck somewhere in a pile os spent shell casings.

Nice one, Z. I have several of those grots and have done very similar things with them like...

shovels

ObjectiveMarker1_05.jpg

and sticks

InvalidBob17.jpg

Broom is a gud'n. The trick will be positioning him so he doesn't interfere with the rotation of the turret. He might have to get stuck on behind the gunners chair.

 

Now I owe you for three good suggestions on this build. :thumbs

Workin on that now, CBob. Things have gotten crazy around here lately and I've only got three boyz in the bed so far. There's an amazing amount of cutting and fitting that has to happen. I remember Kr00zA doing a similar thing and didn't expect this much fiddling around.

 

It is my intent to get the rest done this week. Pics as soon as I have some progress worth showing.

Oh, I understand how and why it would be so much work.  That is why I am so interested to see it.  It is a great idea - if it turns out that I end up playing again in 8th ed then I may do this as well for transports.

'ere's wot I've got so far. Boyz one thru four are glued in and five and six (still armless) are just standing in for positioning purposes. I am figuring I can fit another two or three boyz. Maybe four with some extreme mods (like hanging off the sides). Note to self: I should include at least one grot.

 

So boyz three and four were quite fiddly because they are interacting with part of the truk that they can't be glued to. And all of the first four still need some filling and fixing (note that four is missing a thumb).

 

trukk_07.jpgStill much to do, but I figured I'd toss up a WIP for yez.

I like it so far!

 

It is surprising to see how many models you can pack into the space on the trukk when they are not stuck on their bases.

Really fantastic AA mount, and I too am fairly impressed by the number of boyz you've fit onto the bed, there! Not sure it would quite make it to 11 and a Nob, but still looking pretty good, heh. Definitely do a couple hanging over the edges or off the sidewall (even hanging off the gunner's cage), taking swipes at passing skumgrodz and tossin' around stikkbommz. And, yes, a couple gretchin as well.

Mork, the master of cunning, waits until his foe isn't looking before clobbering him with a low blow.
