Default how to make an A.S.S?

how do you model the A.S.S? also, is it worth it for a broadside?

Sculpt it with green stuff. heheh

Ok, ok, seriously? I've seen players take the butt-end (teeterteeter) of a burst cannon, and replace the lower parts of the Broadside's leg. Throw in the burst cannon's barrels as compression pumps, and you've got it.

Conversely, my Broadsides use the little energy-battery thing on the bottom of fusion blasters. But those on the back of the Broadside's feet, and it looks like something is different.

As for being worth it: yah. It's nice to hide them behind cover first turn, then walk out and still be able to shoot. It gives them just enough mobility to make them more deadly.

Game Workshop's article on modelling wargear
Personally I don't like the A.S.S there, but an idea always helps.

While I have seen the end of a burst cannon conversion as said, you can alternatively use the antennae of a multitracker extending from the knee to back of ankle. I mean, take a scan of any bits you happen to have and find something that you can hack to look cool.

You should get a pilates DVD from your local sports store, that will help you to define your a.s.s.

On a side note, A.S.S is a decent upgrade for your 'sides but it is not the end all. Just make a sound choice during deployment and you should be alright, unless it is Dawn of war deployment or you get the shaft on terrain cover.
