Playing around with different armament packages:

Gaz 66 with ZPU 4


Toyota Crew Cab with medium mortar, M60 and M2


Another Toyota with 90mm RCL and two M240s


Final Toyota with 106mm RCL and a M240


Now I have to figure out to paint them so they look derelict enough but not complete rust buckets. I would like to see more technicals based on flat bed pickups and such. (Hint, hint, GHQ - I hear you have a list of new items in the works)

I have a whole bunch of my own technicals I have made, but getting the images here are a nightmare!

I have made:

Utilities with BMP-1 turrets
Utilities with
BRDM-2 carrying a BM-14 rocket launcher assembly
Eight wheeled 130mm cannon conversions (ala Syrian army 130mm home made)
Six wheeled 122mm cannon conversions (ala ISIS D-30 cannon on Ural truck)
Six wheeled trucks carrying S-60 57mm cannons
M-ATV with BTR-80A autocannon turret
M-ATV carrying ZU-23-2 cannon
Hummer with ZU-23-2 cannon
Hummer with BTR-80A cannon (representing an Iraqi militia twin 23mm cannon)
GAZ-66 with ZPU-4 like yours
BMP-1 with ZPU-4
Hummer with ZPU-4
T-55 cannon on ground mount

Various uses of the M151 Jeep to represent Iranian rapid jeeps.

You can see a lot of my work on the 6mm wargaming Facebook pages Smile

I finally got some technicals done, but they are not terribly impressive. I was trying to go for the beat up and abused look, but I think I need to do some more washes an weathering.

I love all the different armament options you came up with. I need to get my hands of some unused weaponry to add to my trucks!

I cannot find my Technicals so showing a few other items.

Armored FMTV with MG bucket and soft canvas.


Armored FMTV with improved weapon station and Armored Box for soldiers. I apologize for it being so dirty..


M35 2.5 ton Gun Truck, but instead of quad .50s, installed 40mm Bofors.


Armored Cab FMTV with Improved Weapon station, canvas with the lift system for heavier loads.
