Remarkable work so far, MGD. :thumbs

 

I seem to recall someone else trying something like this. It was with the old trukk, and I don't think they used entire boyz either.

 

Would a boy/grot crawling out from underneath the mob towards the tailgate for a fresh breath be extreme enough? :?

Krooza did it with a rat rod looking truk and the back was covered so he could get away with using partial boys. I have and will be trimming some non-visible parts of boyz in order to fit the ten that I intend to get in there. Krooza only had a few visible boyz iirc but the effect was of boyz waiting to pile out into combat. I might be able to accommodate a squirming grot... Good thought.

This is coming along nicely. You know how much I love coming up w/ more things for you to do, so how bout this. Since you plan on having some not whole ladz, maybe have one kneeling down shooting out the window. Be a terror to paint, but you could have another one standing over/on top of. You could even go so far as to have him pressed up against the wall and just an arm sticking out.

I love it. You probably don't need to fit the full complement of boyz on back there - as long as it's full to overflowing, who is gonna count?

I particularly like the shoota guy hanging out of the left. And I second the call to fit a grot on there somewhere, if at all possible.

Do both!

 

Bonus points (towards what I know not) if you can sculpt the seated lad as if he's guffawing, having a good belly laugh at the sight of his mate falling off their ride.

I got a bit of time tonight so I made some progress but no pics. Currently up to 8 boys and 2 runtz. Eyeball estimate says two more max. Three if I can manage one hanging/falling off the back.
I'm trying ladz. Thanks for the inspiration.

Just to add to the suggestions -- a Boy throwing another one off the Trukk. I have a similar model in my Mad Mob...there are 2 hands in the Boyz kit for holding shootas that you can use to hold the Ork aloft:

I love all the suggestions. And the crowd-surfing ork is awesome, Yara. You guys are all nuts.

 

Well, I got all the boyz on board (mostly on board) and the final count is 10 boyz and two grotz. No pic tonight, but I'll snap one tomorrow with everyone sticky-tacked in place. I have one last hand to reposition (waiting for the glue on the arm to dry) and then I have to fill all the joints and sculpt the missing bits of hands and arms. After that I still need to do detailing (armor, pouches and spare weapons on the boyz, gubbinz in the trukk bed, etc) before I can prime. And it will remain partially assembled until final paint... there's just too many places that I can't reach a brush when everyone is in the trukk.

...and 'ere's da promised pic:

trukk_08.jpg

It is, quite literally, a quick picture because numbers 8, 9 and 10 were arguing over space and kept falling off the back of the truk while I was trying to setup the shot. It's hard to see from these shots, but 10 has one foot against the step-up ladder while 9 hoists him aboard. 8 is meanwhile leaning back (not like in the pic where he appears to be leaning forward) shaking his fist and shouting over his shoulder. Note there is also an ammo runt trucked down in the front where he cannot be seen in either shot.

 

I have since added a bunch of shoulder pads and gear and I have done all the gap filling. No one past 4 is glued in place yet (for painting). Just a couple more details and this is ready for primer. It really is packed full. I could've gotten another boy or two and a nob in there if I had resorted to leaving out the legs (covering that fact with the press of bodies). But that would have been an absolute nightmare to paint. I think I've managed a decent trade-off here. You can see all the boyz and their gear (which means they can be painted). The bed still clips off and on cleanly despite all the over-hanging bitz. And I don't think it would blow apart into a thousand pieces if dropped.

 

Still a long way from complete, but I'm pretty chuffed with the way it's going.

 

Again, thanks for all the great suggestions. I think you can all see which ones got looted used. :thumbs

 

***EDIT*** Just noticed that 7 looks like a standard shoota boy in these pictures... he's actually gripping the armor plate to hold himself up there and gunning with the other hand. It will be a lot more evident in the final photos. I'll get all around views (including the invisible ammo runt).

Absolutely amazing! It comes off exactly as it should look in "reality."

Just the other day I saw a picture of a Rhino loaded up with 9 Beakies fit tightly into the back (looked about right for anyone who's ever been inside real APC's, heh); now I'm starting to wonder if GW may have got the size of their transports a bit more accurate than is generally assumed.
