I liked what Nozeminer had done with the head on his "Noze Uv Dork" so, rather than going with the described Grot effigy of Mork/Gork, I'm going with a Grot-esque head. For da revulooshun!!
Ye Olde Tinbot that I'm roughly basing this model on:
The weapons loadout might get switched up just a tad because I really want to make a Snapper, but I'm not set on that if some other arrangement works better. I'm interested in working this more from the ground up and hope to build a fairly detailed & characterful interior for the model.

itsa strange one, but a gud start, perhaps some reconsideration on the nose?
It looks like a rokkit has crashed into the back of his head and comicially ended up into his nose. Which is a cool idea but i don't think that was the idea you were going for.
Perhaps overall, a smoother more pointed nose would be the best solution.
The nose is still rough, but I thinned the width on the nostrils and put some of the other bits on. Dropping the nostril width seemed to put the shape more in line with what a Grot nose looks like.
Smoothing the whole surface out seems like it would be a move away from the "scavenged" look I'm shooting for to stay true to the background of having the Grotnought made up entirely of filched parts.
Good , bad, ugly?

Although the exhaust/nostril/shoota thing underneath the nose at first made me think the Grotnought had a squigar, and then thought it was chomping a big shoota, but mostly is just confusing me. Not sure where you're going with those.
Those would be nostril-mounted twin-linked big shootas! Feer da nose!
The weapons loadout as per the PDF is 2X twin-linked big shootas, a Big Gun, and Kombat Klaws. I figured since "Klaws" sounds like both arms are spoken for and the Big Gun would likely end up in the belly, it semed like the head turret/hull would be a good location for the shootas.

@Zog, it's likely. I'm in love with the newer (in my case) Gorkamorka era Grots and have been developing a force of sorts.

I finished the basic work on the gunner for the Big Shoota. Still a bit of sanding needed on the GS:
I pinned the feet so they can be posed, but this is about where the they will end up. Definitely going to wait on setting the pose till I get the arms finished up, but I ultimately want it to feel like it's bumbling along haphazardly. The front spikes are tacked on and some basics on the rear of the Grotnought as well:
Closer view of some internals on the removable side and the start of my foot:
Loads of building still to do & any criticism/comments are welcome!

...what are you going to arm this thing with?
Right now I'm thinking about doing one arm up as a Snappa, possibly with a skorcha barrel inside. I always liked those on the old Gargants and it would be fun to make one. The other arm is either going to be a hammer or a lobster-ish klaw like the RT dred & Epic Tinbot.
