Apologies if this is the wrong place, but I wasnt sure where else to post this.
I have decided to start an industrial themed goblin army. Using Kromlech orc war machines for spear chukkas and rock lobbas, killa kans for trolls and forge world grot bombs for my doom divers. My conversion and sculpting skills are practically non-existent, so I was wondering if the hive mind could help me find a suitable mad scientist/engineer/doctor/anything vaguely steampunky for my general.

They would be great for an orc. But unfortunately I had my heart set on an all goblin army.

Dunno how I missed that bit. Basically I'd check out the Grotz in various Ork kits. I'm sure many are available from bits order sites:

I like the one with the blowtorch a lot.

The blowtorch guy looks great. I'll trawl bits sites and ebay to see if I can get one on its own. Thanks a lot for your help.

They look nice, but his killa kans/trolls look a little too big for the base. So I think Ill use these guys instead. http://bitsofwar.com/home/160-clanking-destroyer-attack-mob.html

It's because Orcs are mentioned in the title?

Yeah, that's exactly what happened.

This is what you should have for the general! http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Dimreapa/media/redgobbo1front.jpg.html

Other than that, the whole Rebel Grot "faction" of the classic GorkaMorka should be good. You will need to switch around a few weapons, but it should be quite straight forward.
