“Da Red Ferret” – Shadowtrakk

I plan to bring a force of Red Shadowz to BOYL 2014 to take part in some GorkaMorka.  “Da Red Ferret” is a scratch built shadowtrakk taken from my regular ork forces and given a good pimping up for the event.

It now features reinforced armour, reinforced ram, a new engine, a pintle mounted big shoota and a shiny new red paint job.  The red paint was immediately given a large amount or weathering using my newly acquired rust and corrosion Games Workshop technical paints.

The Red Ferret is inspired by the Action Force Hyena.  I was certainly torn between going for a cleaner toy like style of painting and weathering the shit out of it using my new technical paints…needless to say the new paints won out.

The pintle mounted gun has been magnetised for easy transport and interchangeability with other weapons if the whimsy takes me to make a rocket launcher option.  There is plenty of space to fit a couple of models into this vehicle which while not necessary, is a useful feature for immersive GorkaMorka play.

Decals are all hand painted and then ruined with overzealous weathering for that authentic orky feel.

  1. Smashing ! I just love the action force + ork truk combo. They’re here for some tough business and they’re not letting it half done !
    can’t wait to see all our efforts joined on the same table. Th etable will probably break under the weight of such amounts of added awesomeness.

  2. Weathering is a hard thing to stop once you get started. Looks good from here though.

    Is Da Baron likely to usurp Zardork soon?

  3. The Baron will have to pull strings from the shadows (if you will pardon the awful pun) until after the dust of BOYL settles.

  4. Oh what a beauty!! Amazing result indeed!!

    Great job, it turned out really great. Those technical paints are fun, aren’t they?
