Hi all hope you are well, just thought I would share with you all my method of obtaining a fabled Big Mek Stompa for 40K. This is a scratch build (a very cheap one I might add) abd will update you all with progress over the next coming weeks as to how it is going. The first images show the Big Mek Stompa Belly and Lifta-Droppa arm. If you have any questions/comments I would most appreciate them. Obviously this is really the beginning of the project but I think it is the start of something quite special! P.S. sorry about the quality of some of the images, I am new to digital cameras !

A quick question here, do you all think I should add some more cardboard panels on top of the ones already on the body? In a kind of ramshackle fashion? Thanks for any suggestions.

Totally!!!
I would cover up all these spaces in between panels, adding another layer (maybe 2), in order to make it more "messy", in pure ork style.

Keep it up, 'cause it's coming out very nicely.

cheers

Edit: and rivets.. lots and lots of rivets...

Depending on what kinda rivet I want I use one of three methods.

1) Cut plastic rod

2) Use hole puncher on plasticard

3) PVa glue drops

For something large like a stompa Id go with #2.

Cool thanks for the tips and ideas all, will provide an update once I have got some more work done but unfortunately my real job keeps getting in the way lol. Was thinking about giving the thing a rough coat undercoat what do you think of that? I think it will be a good idea as it will add some (needed) texture.

Another brief update, I have added some more colours to "da Krumpla", notably the metallic areas. Have a look! coming along nicely I think....
EDIT- I know it looks a little bare on the "tummy" area but I plan to add some small details once the painting is complete - going to add some yellow flames soon in true Evil Sunz fashion!
