Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have this idea.
Actually, my newest mek, Sawzy Da-dak-dakka, has this idea. See, he hates Snotlings. This isn't the violent disregard that most orks posses, but a real, underlying hatred that seethes just beneath his severely warped and altered tek-brain. See, once, when he was a yoof, a gang of them stole his brain. Don't ask, because he doesn't remember. All he knows is, he got mobbed by about forty-somethin' of the little buggers, and when he woke up, he was on some dok's table with a ten pounds of shiny nuts, rusty bolts, and sputtering circuitry stickin' out of the top of his plundered cranium.
He promptly forgot the whole ordeal and was the envy of every mek in his klan. That is, until he one of his fellows developed a spiffy new shokk attack gun.
Poor Sawzy was torn. It was so big, so loud, so killy...but it's used would require him to round up snotlings! He wasn't going to risk letting the little runts steal his brain again!
So Sawzy went to work and dissapeared into his mek-shop for a month. Or a week, no one really payed any attention.
When he finally emerged, he had strapped to his back and wired directly into his head was a massive block of steel, iron, copper, and what appeared to be a bit of his cybork brain welded together in the rough shape of an Imperial Whirlwind missile launcher. Except instead of missiles, it had chainsaws.
Hell yes. Chainsaws.
And then there was Dakka.
Sawzy Da-dak-dakka's Explosive Chainsaw Salvo Doom Cannon of Doom, MK 1
Weapon stats are identical to the Shokk Attack Gun
All the effects resolve the same as a standard shokk attack gun, though obviously with slightly different reasoning behind them.
1,1 The weapon explodes in a huge fireball, gouts of promethium, chainsaws, and ork-bits going in every direction.
2,2 The bits of cyber-brain in the horrific device get a mind of their own and decide to shoot...somewhere else.
3,3 Snotlings! Die! Sawzy swears he saw some snotlings over there!
4,4 The chainsaws explode too soon and shower their target with a some-what less lethal blast of shrapnel.
5,5 WAAAAGH! With a flurry of multi-colored sparks and a booming, cybernetic warcry, Sawzy reverses the direction of the explosive charges that normally propel the chainsaws at their target, and instead propels himself straight into the thick of it!
5,6 With a a horrible screech and a whiz-bang, every single chainsaw fuses into a burning ball of molten metal death.
6,6 Sawzy's Supa Meltdown Surprise Attack! One of the "chainsaws" fired this attack was in fact a massive warhead of Sawzy's own design that was supposed to be experimental, and required further tinkering before use in order to maximize it's true killy potential.
(If any of this needs to be modified or removed for being too revealing about the codex, let me know, but I think it should be alright. )
That is the Orkiest idea EVAR, a flaming-chainsaw launcher!
Consider this idea stolen, and only at the paltry cost of a few rep points

I welcome any and all to use this idea! Nothing would please Sawzy more than to know that orks all across the galaxy were building flaming chainsaw launchers to terrify dem 'umies!
As soon as I get the bitz for it and start building it, I'm going to be posting pics all over the place!
If you do make one, I'd love to see it!
I want pics of this truly awesome Ork machine!
Get to building ya git!

and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
Ha ha ha ha! Rep for you MethodicalMeat! The only thing even more terrifying to the Imperium than Sawzy's invention is to set all Ork CCW (which incidentally looks like Chainswords) on fire and tell your opponent that it rerolls to wound and are power weapons.
This is getting mounted on my Warboss' Bike. In normal games its just the normal bike gun. In apoc however, well, my Warboss is mounted on a salvaged landspeeder with a Big Mek on the back
But that is TRULY awesome.
holy jeeesus. rep for you, you perfect madman

This sounds amazing! Please convert and show pics!

Update! I've finally gotten my green tide set, which means construction can begin!
My plan is to use the pewter warboss that came with the set to make Sawzy. The first step, however, is to gather chainsaws! Pics as soon as I've got him started!
