What do you guys use to represent kustom mega-blastas on your mekboyz/vehicles? I'm a bit stumped as to how to convert these up. Thanks in advance!

Anything that has something that looks high-teck. Cables, coils, strange barrels. Think Orkified Plasma Cannons if that serves you.

Heh with the wide barrels those look more like grotzookas to me. But yeah, a KMB needs to look like some kind of energy gun, I'd say cobble toghether some plasma and melta guns and strap a lascannon power pack to it.

I find fish'ead bits very useful in this regard. Add a couple cables and a couple bits and bolts and you have yourself a mega blasta. Even the old school plasma guns. They are much more orky than the newer ones.

fish'ead bits and tin'ead green things would work out. I'm feelin' tin'ead green thingies for my KMBs, when I get to that. And that Kan is rockin', man. Yellow looks so good when its the right shade and theres a lot of it.

It's a kustom mega blasta, after all, so it's really you're choice. I've always thought of them as a kind of Spartan Laser for orks, like a shortened, slimmed battle cannon. Just make sure they don't look like anything else, and you're good.

Green stuff thats not exactly helping, he should use the search function but sometimes you need some inspiration to get a project started. Try meltaguns, they don't use energy per-sae, but lava or something. That or go old skool. Kustom mega blastas, were little more than a pile of weapons, of all sorts shapes and sizes, welded together to maim the enemy into a crater. Oh yeah shade
Of course all my topics are pic heavy, you know why? because people don't want to open 12 hyperlinks a page! it stands to reason

You could use burna-like weapons with spinny / worky bits like the Mek in the new Loota box.

My KMB is modeled from: Part of a Shoota Part of a Mech Warrior tank barrel A tin'ead green tube Part of a fish'ead gun and a few things i doubt have ever been identified by man. My best recommendation is try to get a tin'ead green tube in there somewhere
"Direction, for me, encompasses the recognition of the control/beatdown relationship but then breaking it and inflicting the reverse on the enemy so that the outcome is desirable for me. I have to do this because I am using a label whoms perameters are set/limited to a water army and I have to redefine them to suit my own style (what ever it is - we still dont know) A simple actual in game example of this is focus fire or shifting/sliding my forces laterally across the table."
"Thus the quality of the generals has changed, forced or contributed - etc - to the allocation of the beatdown/control relationship through direction and application, which, whilst enhanced by army composition, can be independant of it, or so I believe." -Pronto the 2nd - Denizen of Warseer
