On a stegadon, in a unit of skinks (they also have M6) with banner of frenzy and 2-3 kroksagor.

Would this be a viable unit in 2k games?

Pretty expensive but the +5 combat res and frenzy could make a mess of things. Plus, i like stegadons.

It can if its a mounted monster, just like the corpse cart. (however it can still be picked out, but it is in there to give frenzy and benefit from rank bonus xD )

Ld7 on the skink and itl be near your lord anyway, plus you have a bsb.

Less points that a normal death star and itl get the job done.

Plus, 16 S6 attacks would put the fear of god into meif it came running 12" a turn to me! Not to mention the impact hits. Put the steg on a flank on the outside edge of your army and you wont be flanked easily either. Use terradons to ensure people dnt flee from you.

Why would you want a deathstar composed of ranked skinks? Its like a real deathstar composed of dog poop. Just put it in a unit of kroxigor.

The skinks make it worse, not better. The Skink BSB is fine, but the skaven franzy banner isn't worth it because all skink chiefs need to either be lance caddies or be wizard unters on terradons.
