well here is another stompa thread! i have done a few conversions on my stompa. This is going in my armored vehicle Bad Moonz army.
well here it is. I will also update this topic as updates happen.

i used plasticard to make my own face plate just to convert it a bit. you may also notice a 'ramp' on the stompa's right shoulder (this is for the grot bombs to take off):

The stompa bitz: ( i will stick these on after painting as it will then be easier.)

Boss pole: (still needs some rivets on the bad moon symbol)

Normal belly:

Dakka Belly: (belly gun)

because i haven't put the turret on the stompas shoulder i added an extra one in one of the grot holes:

I added a extra smoke stack from the manufactorum:

I then added a engine from the 'new' ork trukk kit (makes the combat weapon go fasta! :biggrin)

i like the belly gun and the plasicard faceplate alot. seeing as you've used magnets you might aswell have a go at building the other options for a kustom stompa, and being badmoons i think you should have a go at a lifta-droppa. hoping to see more soon :D

Not bad. I wonder if there is anything you could do to make it look like it moves faster, put it on tracks/wheels, booster rockets etc. Something to fit in with your clan. Speed Freaks Bad Moonz? meh each to his own. One thing I would suggest is plating the inside of that belly gun. It just does not look feasible (even given orky know wots) that a gun with a barrel that thin could have such calibre.

Yer i was thinking the same, i might do this later on though, after i have painted it. :thumbs

a good point,i have tried to make it a bit thicker but don't want the barrel to get thinner. this is what it looks like, not much thicker (it is ork! what do you expect!)

I have now also magnetized the exhaust stacks (for easy storage and travel.

The belly gun just isn't working for me, something that fires projectiles that huge needs a thicker barrel or else the propellant would blow it into a million glowing fragments inside the stompa. The trukk engine, while a novel idea, doesn't seem to actually have a function since it is just tacked on. Overall it's a solid build though, I'll keep an eye out for this build.

oh the idea of the trukk engine is to drive the close combat titan weapon (chainsword) i know the drive shaft is the wrong way but it still drive it, the meks have been at work.

Well with that reasoning heck why base it in reality at all, lets throw away all the laws of physics and anything that makes sense or that we can relate to. Surrealism ftw!

Agreed
It's Orky. At the end of the day, most people don't look at the model and say "That doesn't make sense". Most people will look at it and say "Wow that looks cool!"
Excellent conversion :thumbs

Great job! The magnetizing was done expertly and smartly - not just for future build possibilities but for storage. Very well thought out. I like the bad moon icon you've done, and the belly gun with the armored drop-down door is great.

The Welder Grot is great and I shall be looting it! ;) Nice work so far... but the BellyKannon realy does need its barrel walls thickening IMO. To do this easierly... find a peice of pipe of suitable diametre. Stuff some putty down the end of the kannon and push this thinner pipe into it. This gives to plenty of time to faff about getting it straight. Once happy with its position let the putty set and then fill the gap with more putty. When thats all set you can file down the end of the kannon. Its best to leave about 5mm of extra pipe protruding so it can be filed down... better to be too long then too short ;)

Those grotz look great I'm in agreement the welder is brilliant. Whole build looks very good and well thought out. The one exception for me is the belly gun barrel. i agree with the others the needs a bit more work. Still looks to much like a tube stuck in the belly of a stompy stompa. Thicken the barrel a bit more and some gubbins/rivitz? TBH you may better starting again with slighty thinner tube and building up on the outside. Maybe hydrolics ( to aim/suppress recoil) and other gubbinz. You've got a great build here and would be a shame not to finish it propa. Thats my two teef
