Yeah, I want to have some but I don't feel like paying 15 bucks a model for them. I am not going to really use them much just to have the option there is nice you know? A strength 6 hit isn't bad at all against monstrousities. So I am trying to think of a way to convert them to make it seem legal. I've been thinking alot about the fluff and they are basically just overgrown humans from heavy worlds. So I have been looking over the models in fantasy and such looking to see if I can find a model that I could convert them from. I am thinking of probably taking Chaos warriors and replacing their weapons with Ork arms and Shootas to represent them being more primitive. The Chaos warriors are much larger than your standard guardsman so it will look much bigger. I think it could be justifiably legal in a game. What do you guys think? Can I get away with it?
If the conversion is well made and it fits the size and fluff you will be able to get away with it.. I don't see why not... You are simply using other GW components to make a mini... Go for it...
If you tell your opponent before the game that they are ogryns and if they are different enought so they aren't confused with any of you other troops then I don't see a problem. It wouldn't look right to me though... :)
If you take a chaos warrior and an ork to make a single model, wouldn't that be almost as expensive as buying the ogryn in the first place though?
Naw my friend is ork and he has all the parts I need so all I have to do is pick up my Chaos Warriors. Don't worry I'm going to swap out the heads I'm just using the large bulky bodies the Warriors have to represent 8th or ninth generation Ogryns on normal worlds. They would begin to revert to their normal stature again in the right environment eventually I think. So yeah, they should look interesting. I am making my own IG off of my own planets. I have the fluff and all I just have to critique it and I will post it in the fluff section in a week or two.Originally posted by Tubal@Oct 13 2004, 133

I dont like the idea, CWs arent big enough, they are too static and look to oganised and chaosy. Wait till ogre kingdoms are out and use plastic bull ogres.
Yeah, Ogryns are fine and all, but I have 2 of them, one is Nork and the other is a cool, pro-painted old Ogryn that just looks neat. I'd never pay 16 bucks a pop for a rather mediocre unit when GK Terminators do everything they do better and cost less AND have a decent save.
Karnov let all of us fulfil our repressed dreams of being a fat Russian man running around in the great outdoors and getting shot at by weird stone heads and crap. You didn't have a repressed fantasy about doing such marvelous things? Well, I don't believe you . . . [djpretzel]
Perhaps the OK Leadbelcher models at like $35 for 4 would help you... Much cheaper, supposed to be out soon... Kicka** looking...
Check this out:
Thought it might help.
Or get the bull ogres, plastic and Â£18 for 6 or something cheap
