About this creation
Disclaimer:I cannot be held responsible for bleeding eyes that may or may not result from the gratuitous use of Orkish (Minus the blows to the head, of course. I can't do that over the Internet.)
Oi! Wot're you lot doin' standin' around? Ya wanna make a Stompa, eh? Well den! Lets get to it. I ain't gonna teach ya runts 'ow ter build a Stompa from scratch o' course, just 'ow to make one better. We's gonna start wif da finnished one. I'm gonna explain da features to ya, and you's gonna take notes. Why ain't ya takin notes, ya lousy grots?
Let's start, eh? Dis is da front a' da Stompa. No, dis ain't da same pitcher. Whaddya mean I'm lyin? You wanna take a ride in da Kannon? I dinn't think so.
Dis be da side wif da Deffkoptas. Dis way we can launch in da field ta raid da Humies, den come back ta base. And den we do it again! WAAAGH!
'Ere we gots da back a' da stompa. Da enjin lets all da smoke out here so's we can see. Can't kill da humies if'n ya can't see.
Dis 'ere's da side wif da Bigga Choppa! It's like a big choppa, only BIGGA!
Da 'eads got a gatler shoota, so's it kin shoot up da humies planes. Dis one gots lots a Dakka!
No Stompa is complete wifout a good face ta scare da humies ta deff. And den, when dey're all dead from da face, we'll chop'em up wif da choppa! An' if dat don' work, we still gots da Dakka! Lots an' lots a' Dakka!
'Ere're da feet. Good for stompin' da humies tanks an' stuff.
Da Belly's where we stuck da Kannon. We's can only shoot it once, cuz we's ain't gots enough ammo.
Dis is Da Bigga Choppa. Da Choppa's best for killin' da enemy Stompas an' tanks. It's great fun.
'Ow does we make da big choppa better? We Add Dakka! Den we Twin-link da Dakka!
Da Deffkopta is gettin' ready to launch. See da rails dat keep it on? Dat was MY idea! Don' let no stupid mekboy tell ya he came up wif it.
Da platform gots ta have Dakka too! I wanted to add a choppa, but da meks said it won't work. Dey seemed pretty sad too.
Ya can see da deffkoptas bein' carried up to da platform. Da grots gotta pull 'em up from inside da stompa. Be sure ta kick yer Grots twice a day. Makes 'em obedient.
Thanks for struggling through! My sincerest apologies to OSHA, because the Orks are in violation of just about every protocol you've laid out. Also to those of you who can't stand bad grammar. That must have really hurt. Anyway, there's actually something of a story behind this hunk of scrap. The Lego Military Group over on Flickr is running a Carrier contest, and one of the categories is a Microscale Carrier. The Steamy Battlecruiser resulted from that challenge, but the Carrier it was supposed to accompany was lost in the Warp. I gave up on an airship carrier, and started scouring the Internet to try and find a viable design. I couldn't come up with anything until, on went the lightbulb, I remembered an episode of 40k Radio. They'd been discussing 'Da Evil Eye in Da Sky' Stompa variant, which was like an Orky Aircraft Carrier. One night and another afternoon of psychotic building, and BOOM! I built the ugly little fellow staring you down. I have to say though, it's quite liberating to know that any screwup I make I can claim is planned BECAUSE the Orks are such a ramshackle army. Heck, in the Fluff the Imperial Techpriests are completely amazed that any of this stuff even runs! I'm told it runs on 'Clap Your Hands if You Believe' design philosophy. Turns out the Orks themselves have quite a bit of faith. Or stupidity. Actually, that sounds more like it. Anyways, you get to leave with whatever body parts you still have now. Thanks again for reading!

Dat dey does! We run outta paint when we wuz makin' it, so we's gonna go splatter da 'umies ta paint it!
And no, I don't play 40k. I'm trying to scrounge up an Air Cav guard force though. So far I have: 1 valkyrie. It's going to be awhile...
@Crazy Jay: We don't gots enuff paint. But we's gots plenty a' humies! It's gots ta earn it's paint!
@Delta: Well, this was based off of a specific model. Derefore we don't need no boyz! We gots da deffkoptas to bring more dakka!
@Mark: Dat's right it is! Dem humies ain't gonna know wot's 'it'em.
And thanks! That launcher was... Interesting to place. I really have to stop trying to build with those things loaded...
