Second Death Skull Trukk

Here is the second Ork Trukk I painted for my Death Skulls.

I mix of the dark Gothic rust mixed with the Ork comically bright colors. Among the blue panels, you can see segments of other Ork clans like the yellow Flash Gitz, red Speed Freaks, and checkered Goffs. Because there are so many great tidbits all over the truck, I felt the need to highlight them in different colors, patterns, and chipping. Take for instance the side panels here; you’ve got little dags bolted on the top, arrows and lighting …
