Was really unwilling to buy new Mek with Shokk Attack Gun (I like heavy metal, but not when big miniatures are made of it!), so built my own, using a new Loota (and biker hand/boy head), class SAG spinning gubbinz and lots of bits from Robogear and 1:35 models (that huge wheel at its end is taken from T-34 engine for example :))

I was thinking of doing something like this, cept I wasn't gonna use the vacume suction thing. some sort of grot paint ball hopper on top I think would be awesome. :D 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

Well, there is no mistaking it's a Shock Attack Gun. It looks really good. Do you plan on beefing up the boy? Maybe add some plasticard platforms to his feed to make him stand a little taller, and/or use a slightly larger head like grusmock suggested? Or maybe using a mek head could easily convey the Mekness of him as well. Other then seeming a little short, it's good! :thumbs

In the original rules for the SAG I think it stated that a vortex just formed in front of the gun & the snots were sucked in. With the new hose configuration I'd imagine that the vortex would be right at the nozzle of the hose, With a gun that size you could fire out whole mobs of gorkamorka yoofs if you put the right sized nozzle on it.

It's looking pretty gnarly! Can't wait to see it painted! Perhaps you should put some grotz hanging around to get sucked in! :lol

Way better than the original, I think. I like it even without the spinny thing on the front.

I like it, esp the smallness of the mek. The size was a bit off for me at first but i like the way he is all crushed under the weight of the gun. It is such a characterful and powerful (well some of the time) table top weapon that the single model normally doesn't really do it justice. I think you've cracked it however, tres bon!

Awesome conversion! i agree that he needs something to make him look more mekky such as a mek head.

Good work - it's pretty clear what it is, and I like all the detail. What's missing is the most distinctive feature of the SAG, which is the spinny gubbins on the 'muzzle'. That's all it needs, IMO.

I like the fact that its a ridiculously large gun on an ork. The look, like res stated, is fitting as it looks like the ork is almost being crushed. Oh, and your model > GW's

Agreed , i bought the spearhead box, and i'll surely endup converting him so eather hold something else or maybe make him into a nob or something

tho i'm quite fond of your conversion, i feel that you need to beef up he's muscles and maybe add a more characterful head

Thanks for your comments, I indeed decided to make the big mek slightly bigger - now he has a nob's head and new bionik 'eavy duty legs for a better surface grip :) Hopefully it didn't ruin the 'crushed' look either.

I also added more detail to the shokk attack gun and even used a fantasy snotling - or, to be more precise, his legs (his top part will be going to another conversion, which is coming soon :))

If you're after a bit beefier plastic legs and torso, I'd highly recommend the Plastic FB command sprue, which has a good sized set of legs and torso on it for the Nob. Very nice model by the way, I love the over complex worky bitz!

I can't wait to see where the other half of that Snotling ends up...
However, as we know, Gorkamorka favours the hopeless optimist and players who hold back on their shots should be jeered loudly.

Ok even better with the spinny thing. To think I passed on buying a bunch of those things about 5 years ago because " I had no need for them" :( never pass up a deal.

a really amazing conversion! love the over-sized SAG (looks much better then the original)
maybe you could add some wires and stuff to the legs to show they're mechanical ones.

(his top part will be going to another conversion, which is coming soon :) )


I got an idea of what it could be, but I won't tell anything about it until you posted it^^.. looking forward to seeing the rest of the snotling and the whole project finished

Very nice conversion!

I was thinking about doing something similar.

Not because I don't like the GW model (I think it is spiffy)

I just have a Squigton of bitz and I am known for making unique conversions in my local circle.

The sad thing though is with the current list I have a Warboss and a Bigmek with a KFF. I would never go into battle without a KFF. The SAG would be something I would field in Apocalypse only as there is no force org.

As a side note I saw the tubes and thought.."Wait..I have bendy straws!! I got them for conversions..Brilliant usage!!"

Kudos!! :thumbs
