Never seen it done, but it's a great big canon, and a beautiful one at that, so it should be perfect.

That's the beauty of Ork stuff, you just have to make it the right dimensions and stick it in place.

Not to be patronising you, Stu, but in the olden days we grey-bearded Ork veterans scratchbuilt tons of our own stuff, or merely heavily converted it.

Iīm still surprised how many of the 4th ed. "new" Ork players almost build their units as-is out of the box, not even headswaps between the different kits.

The new Ork line is perfect to mix-match and convert. E.g. the turret of the battlewagon and its cannon can easily be converted to a big gun, or a boomgun for a Looted Wagon. With a little work it can be all of them, by interchanging parts.

[/old man mode] :cool:

Unless you exclusively play pricks donīt worry too much about the correct measurements. Just donīt model merely to get an advantage and keep the base size or the modelīs footprint on the table roughly like it looks on GWīs photographs.
For your big gun: just mount it on a carriage or put two wheels on it and it should be fine.

scratchbuilding is the way to go. Why not even go on eBay and pick up a Stompa gigashoota or something to that effect? It'd be huge, and isn't that what Orks are really all about? If all else fails, pick up some plasticard tubing, cut it at slightly odd angles to make it look half-arsed, and tie some wire around it to hold it all together. Job's a gud 'un!

I plan to use Lego wagon wheels and the spare Zzap guns from battle wagons to make a big gun battery. Just have to dig out my legos.

I use the Ork Killa kanon as a big gunz Ork kannnon. It turn out very nice. I have no base at the moment, but Iīm planning to make one.
