15mm Fortnight: Completed 15mm trucks.

While I waited for the tissue paper tarp on the back of the second truck to dry, I ended up building a Grav Ambulance for my medic to hoon around in. The ambulance uses basically the same techniques as the normal truck, but obviously it's a different shape. The anti-grav pods are made from rectangular section plastruct tubes and 1mm plasticard, the flashing light is a small googly eye.
I intend to design and print decals for these vehicles, but I won't have access to a high quality colour printer until next week when I got back to work, so that'll have to wait.
Anyway, here are some pics of the three completed 15mm scratch built trucks. Paint is a mix of Vallejo, Citadel and Tamiya. Part of the plan is to have the trucks colour coded to their squads; Green Squad drives a green truck, red squad a red and so forth.

Why not have a go at building your own trucks? It's really not very hard, and it's terribly rewarding!
Next time, Hippo fans!

  1. These trucks are excellent, and the instructions on how to make one are very clear. Great contribution. Looking forward to more like this (as well as the usual great terrain articles)
