I dont why anyone hasnt done this yet but a friend of mine suggested a simian army....ape like (brutes from halo/ wookies from star wars sorta thing) big hairy mamal...
here is the trick I need a model that is big, easy too convert and paint in different styles.
it came too me
if youy take the ork and put lots of waving body and facial hair you could make a really imposing gorrila like army....
I was thinking they could be jokaero offshot (the smart monkey race no one remembers) that evolved faster due too someones meddling (could be deciever could be a demon la la la)
I think it can work but i wanted your opnions, maybe links too some already established ape army and some models i could use...
I was even thinking of wasting some more cash and making an all
Yhetee army but its a lot more expensive
so here are the questions
what models are large and easy too convert (i,e very little detail and lots of open space)
what other models could i but and use
and any other info and theme or idea you could throw at me...
Since, as far as I know, there's never been a clear description of the Jokaero beyond being 'brightly coloured' and 'ape-like', you could just do an army of Jokaero. All we know about them is that they're very good at miniaturizing technology..
You might have more luck in the conversion forum regarding your conversion questions.
It's a good idea. Jokaero supposedly weren't very physically imposing, but it's entirely possible that your race could be distant cousins, a mutated subspecies or degenerate descendants. Maybe they were the ancestors of the Jokaero, like Neanderthals. If you want them to have advanced tech (guns, ships) you could say that they hijacked Jokaero technology. Jokaero were supposed to be tech-mimics: they could imitated other race's weaponry and miniaturise it, but they didn't invent a lot themselves.
Orks would be your best bet for proxy rules and conversion. You could take a look at Fantasy models for bitz; I can't think of any, but there's bound to be huge hairy guys in there somewhere.
