    Civilian Models- Any Ideas???

    I don't know about you guys, but I'd be quite interested in getting some civilian models- both living and dead ones. How sweet would it be to have a terrain peice littered with slaughtered townsfolk or city dwellers? Or how about a group of peasants, laborers, or even a group of women and children fleeing from a battle and getting shot down? They could make for awesome scenery or even objectives (imperial guard must protect the inhabitants of an imperial city etc.). Unfortunatly, it dosen't seem like GW makes a line of civilians (althhough some models can be substituted or found, such as the cowering peasant in the last Giant box). Does anyone know of some good models to use as civilians? GW or otherwise?

    I'd use combinations of IG and some Warhammer Fantasy models. It'd be good to make a conversion of a space marine steeping on a civilians back to get a better firing position or something along those lines. Bringing back the darkness they used to have.

    If GW made a few civilian sprues I think they'd sell like hotcakes

    You could combine the Empire Militia box with Necromunda close-combat spures and Necromunda basic weapon-sprue.

    Or you could order some of these fellas!
    Enter the word 'Frateris' in to the search engine and watch the civilan models made by GW!

    in the mordheim range their is also some human casualties and the frenzied mob: http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefr...orignav=300808

    they look a bit medieval but could easily be converted to look more futuristic

    Hmm, thanks for the links fellas. Those frateris are cool, and the mordheim dudes look like they just got out of the chaos carnival. Perhaps one day GW will produce some civilians. Until then we can only hope and convert.

    This is going to sound a little strange but zombies make good battlefield citizens if suitably converted, mostly because they have hands without weapons in them but also because they look starved and diseased.

    The bits that look obviously dead can be used for trophies and base decorations, or that some of them were dragging dead/wounded with them.
