It's been a while since I posted anything here. It always seems like that's how I open my threads, it is true though. Anyway...


One sunny day in June 2010 I saw this model sitting in a charity shop window:

Of course being an Ork I immediately thought, "I should make that into something!". I came up with this plan to turn it into a Big Mek stompa:

The Mr Potato Head Stompa is by no means an original idea, a lot of inspiration was drawn from IronDog's 'Tater Titan, and various discussions before that.



So I worked on it on and off for the last 9 months. It's finally got to a stage where I could consider putting it on a table. There's a lot of detail work to do and I haven't included shots of the rear because it's very bare still.

I have an apoc game lined up in a couple of weeks and am hoping to get it more table-ready by then, including giving it a base (for stability). At the moment I think I'm happy enough with the lifta droppa arm, but the dethkannon/gigashoota is looking a bit bare. Perhaps it needs a massive ammo feed or similar? Will have to work something out for that. Suggestions welcome!

Gigashoota needs an ammo drum, like the pic below. It is the gun from the sexy A-10 Warthog. :dakka

It looks like you got a mouth going, perhaps make open to shoot the rokkits, then close it again? Kinda like a bomber's bomb bay doors?
