Welcome to Librarium Online!
What do you all use to represent Rokkits? I am having a hard time figuring out what I should use on my Killa Kans and Warbuggies
Well Killa Kans can come with Rokkits (if you don't have any, try e-bay or bitz ordering) I've also represented rokkits with a looted multi-melta, same range same strenght and I can claim orky tampering has made it less effective. I have also used the hunter killer missile from the Imperial tank accesory sprue to gret effect in making rokkits for the boyz.

Another easy way to make rokkits is this:
There are these little rubber plumbing plugs that look just like bullets. Buy a small plastic tube (plastruct) from the hobby store, slice a cylinder about a half inch long. and glue the rubber bit to the end.
Then, from a slotted sheet of plastruct, cut tiny rectangles and slice one diagonal edge off. 3 of these glued to the sides at the bottom make the fins for the rokkit.
Ive even used this along with metal rod and more plastruct to make nearly identical rokkit rigs to the ones the mobs carry. Same relative size and dimension, within a millimeter or so, I'd say. I made 14 rokkit boys for just the cost of some slugga plastics this way and they look pretty damn good.
I'll take pics of what I'm talking about and post them as soon as I can.
I was OK with Rokkits. I needed loads of them, so I just went through my bits box, got anything that was imperial and fired a projectile, and slapped it on a Shoota.
I also got some Stormboy jet packs and slapped them on a Slugga. That looks pretty Ork-ish.
Personally, i got some fantasy orks for the job as with a few bitz, a spear quickly becomes a rokkit.
You can also use stikkbomz as parts of rokkit conversions, after all if you can just make it look like they've got some sort of propulsion they can count as rokkits, after all they are explosives!
Plus on vehicles they could double up as stikkbomb chukkas!

In my Kommando army, rokkit launchas are replaced by Orks with a comms-pack from the IG sprue, holding radios and pointing. Calling in airstrikes
I bought a piece of 5mm wooden rod from a model shop, repeatedly stuck the end in a pencil sharpener to get a point, then chopped of a 15mm length to make a rocket. All my orks/vehicles carry lengths of plastic tube for their launchers, like bazookas.
Why are you using a rokkit?
