Assault Truck

Postby Ben-Jammin » Fri May 04, 2012 3:46 pm

Spawn of boredom and disgust of my old truck:

Image

I'm quite pleased with the turret. Although its bigger than some of my tanks, it can't match their firepower, but most infantry that face this thing is pretty much screwed.

Image

The driver's seat. There are no side doors to protect it from boarders. The only way in is through the opening door in the rear, which can only be accessed from the truck's bed.

Image

The bed is rather cramped, but can hold four figs and their gear. The grey wheel thing near the door turns the tow cable on the bottom.

Looks pretty badass! Reminds me of some kind of post-apoc vehicle.

Yeah, its inspired by the Ranger's truck from the Metro 2033 video game. I wanted to try making the one from the book too, but its like a large fire truck if I remember right.

Looks very cool. Now all you need is spikes.

I love this truck; it's pretty badass. The gunner looks a little vulnerable, though.

This truck is badass! My only suggestions for improvement are putting grenade launchers or skulls somewhere. Keep up the good work!

Looks pretty badass to me. Spikes sound legit. Maybe some flames and smoke belching from the non-existent smokestacks/exhaust pipes too.

I wanted to add spikes, but the only ones I have in abundance right now are the little curved white ones and the large flexible spikes in gold. I really need to change the blade on the front too IMO. As for the gunner, I suppose he could use some extra cover; I added the 1 x 4 wedge plates to try and help protect him from attacks from above.

Looks awesome! I like the turret and chassis design. I like!

I really dig the gunners turret. The inside could use some work though. The roof is high enough that you could fit a couple chairs and more controls.

Thanks for the comments!

I agree with you on the inside, but I can't add much else to the roof without obstructing the turret's view. I want it to have a 360-degree field of fire and still be able to pivot. I have highly considered adding gun seats on the sides of the truck though, as it could be easily done.

That's some solid work there, even if the minis have to be a bit friendly if they want a ride. The thing looks huge!

It is pretty big, a normal minifig standing next to it won't even touch the top of the tires. The bed's door can fold down like a ramp to let them get inside.
