Added a few skulls up top. Can't have enough skulls on this build!

I have an idea, see if you can convince a Games Workshop guy to give you a Skull or a skeleton warriors sprue, you could use these parts to make unique parts like a shift lever made out of a femur with a skull atop it?

Just an idea but this build is definately headed in a creepy, messed up direction and I like it, keep going mate, i'm behind ya all the way!

Had some more time to work on this last night. May have to come up with something else for a seat now as there is no more room for the current one. That or I need to find some smaller skulls. Also made a hood ornament as well.

Thanks everyone for the comments. Not much to update, spent the whole night trying to figure out where to put the weapons, and decided the seat was too big and any seat back would cover must of the detail from the back of the cab. So I decided to make a new seat with no back. That way all the detail should show thru. Some of the weapons will be on the doors and some hanging from the dashboard.

Thanks Kevin,DSCN2268.jpg

making some barb wire to place on the vehicle somewhere. Also mocking up the steering wheel and dashboard. The steering column is coming out of a rat swarm from the reapers mini set. Now to just figure out how to sculpt some bones and I think im done.

Wow mate, really good use of the reapers set! I'm keen to build a cadillac hearse using parts from the skeleton warriors sprues and call it the undertaker :( Or perhaps an Edd Roth inspired topless paddy wagon done up as a hearse... hmm ideas.

Thanks for the inspiration mate!

If you are going for a factory stock look on the truck, the seat is too far to the middle of the cab.

No, seriously, this build is cracking me up. I can just see some hooded skeleton driving around town and people saying "oh, dear, look at that!". I like the weapons holder on the door. The single seat makes sense - who the hell would want to ride round with THAT guy? Great!

your best bet is if you can find an "actual" Games Workshop store. There's more inspiration then an M Night Shyamalan movie in there B)

Its as close as it gets to a gamer store here in turkey town, most everything has shut their doors in the last 4 years. In fact at one time we had like 10 hobby shops now only have 1 1/2 left.....ohno.gifohno.gifohno.gifohno.gifohno.gifohno.gifohno.gif

Maybe look fro sprue kits on ebay? they should be easy to find. Again it's a huge hobby but yes in remote areas it's hard to get the parts.

You know what's funny? I went into the hobby shop yesterday and they'd just gotten in a shipment of new kits, and low and behold there's the cadillac I'm after... well bugger me if I didn't say I was after one just a few hours before i went in store!

Thank you, I am trying to decide when enough detail is enough on the interior so I can start to work on the pumps, hydros and work out a paint scheme to try to get this thing together.
