Forgeworld will sell them, but be prepared to pay a rather hefty price. Here
I'd imagine them to be hard to scratchbuild, but a toy elephant with guns attached could make a good proxy.

The Forgeworld model is amazing. But the price tag is also amazing. I'd suggest a few options if you're a decent converter. 1 ) Go to your local hobby store and pick up 2-3 kits of dinosaur models. These kits typically contain a decent amount of bits which you can then patch together into a squiggoth or two. Obviously, the bigger the kit, the cooler the squiggoth. From my own experience, the model kits tend to be "disproportioned" compared toe a squiggoth (that is to say that the squiggoth is disproportioned). The feet should be wider, the head bigger, etc.

2 ) Look at the shiny new Lizardman Stegadon model. Now, imagine that same model without LIzardmen and without those horns (perhaps added as tusks). See where I'm going with that? Yeah, you could get a pretty cool squiggoth from that kit, in my opinion.

Remember that the #1 rule of playing Orks is: if you can't afford it...scratch build it.

Okay first off I love answering these kind of questions.Second I would like you to know that you can only use squigoths in apoc.Third the answer to your question you need to buy a lord of the rings elephant they are so fun to convert take metal wire around the tusks tto give a barbed wire effect 8) then take the top of the model and put as many grots as you can fit on it , then fill the crows nest on the elephant with all kinds of scary gunz and there you have it a super cool squigoth

Squiggoths are not just apoc. You can use them in a feral orks list.

I didn't think the feral list existed anymore, with fifth edition being out?

Opponent's permission I guess, but you can always counts-as with the Ork list - a battlewagon perhaps =)

When I was in high school I used to play 40k with my g/f's little brother. He took a toy turtle and glued the platform from a Basilisk on it and stuck some random weapons on it and voila! His very own squiggoth. We used the book that has rules for making your own vehicles to do the price for it. Pretty fun.
