Took a few shots of some terrain I made on a whim a few weeks back. Little pieces that can be used in WHFB as stegadon/carnasaur eggs, in 40K as alien/tyranid eggs, or in pulp stuff as dino eggs. Plastic Easter eggs, CDs and plastic lids for bases, various flock and moss stuff, hot glue/glue, paint, sealer. Marines for scale. If Heroes HQ is interested these may find a home there, if not I'll add them to the woodland/jungle selection here at home.

I also recently found some cheap Star Wars toys on ebay that I thought would make for good Ork rokkit buggies. They're "Hailfire Droids". I didn't expect them to be quite so big, but I think they're still an appropriate size.

The big loop tracks are the main size issue - I'll probably leave them as is and just let opponents decide up front if they want to count them for LOS and providing cover or not. I think that you could cut out the middle section of the loop and reattach the top part, shortening the loop but still keeping the effect; may try that out.
They look suitably bizarre to be Ork vehicles as-is, but if I feel ambitious I may add some gubbins or even repaint them down the road.
