How does one model a Kai Gun? It is supposed to be larger than normal (normal man couldn't lift it), so where do I find a suitable gun to represent this on the model?
maybe try an ogryn ripper gun or use the heavy bolter.

Cool...I've never seen a ripper gun on a model. How does it compare in size to a las-cannon?
For my Lieutenant I took a metal heavy bolter from the old predator's sponsons. It looks pretty cool, and you don't need an ammo belt anyway as the thing doesn't use ammo .

Ok here's my up to date wildest idea for a Kai gun.
Go into a standard hobby store where they sell model airplanes, tanks and artillery.
Get your hands on a 1/72 scale 155mm "Long Tom" artillery cannon.
Then just model the the arms of the model to fit onto it.
The cannon is really long, and even has a "gunstock" that's almost screaming for further conversion.
I once moulded one of these on a chaos space marine and counting it as a autocannon, I'll get a pic later today aiight?

Something neat I've figured out for this is using the Dark Elf Reaper Bolt Thrower main body from Fantasy - it looks a lot like a giant rifle or shotgun, and it even has some nice "evil" iconography on it - all you have to do is take off the lower part and then mold your mini's arms to be holding it, and ta da! You have a Kai Gun!
yes the ripper gun works for the kai gun but won time i took a bunch of lasguns glued them all together and it just looked so nice it was unbeleible
