Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am slowly starting to work on an army that I have always enjoyed playing against but have never got around to fielding. I love the almost comic relief provided by the orks and the crazy inventions they come up with, not to mention the scopr for some truly unique conversions.
So, when planning my list I have had several crazy ideas running through my head and wanted to vent them.
First up on my probably build list is a Kustom Force Field for a big mek. Is there anywhere that states that the KFF must be modelled on the actual mek? Or is it perfectly acceptable to be modelled on a seperate base and just ignored for gameplay purposes? The idea I have is quite a large one, and should hopefully be some fun to build.
What I want to do is make a KFF that is powered by a good old fashioned 'hamster wheel' - but instead of hamsters its going to have a squig chained to something (haven't worked out what) chasing some terrified snotlings while the grot oilers have some fun with a modified grot prod - egging the squig on, while a cage of despondent snotlings is ready to drop the next unfortunate in to power the device. If I ever draw some plans that I am happy with, I'll attempt to post them.
So what do you all think - could it work? And would anyone have any problems with a large scenic base following the mek around?

i like the idea. You could probably get away with the KFF being on a separate base because there's already precedent for it with models like grot oilers and ammo runts. It might make it difficult to play around, but I think it's totally worth it. If any one has a real problem with it, tell them to lighten up. It's just a game and it's supposed to inspire creativity.
Ein is doing a SAG on a different base, sort of like a heavy weapons team I believe. I don't mind the idea but good ways to make it look are like coils from generators? that sort of thing.
How about a snotling on a stick? Just like the donkey trick. I would put it on wheels/tracks just so it looks like it could actually be moved around instead of being stationary.
