ok i want to build some armoured orks called ardboyz for warhammer 40k
they sell black ork models with two handed weapons wich are just about perfect
all i have to do is add a gun.
however these models are kinda pricey. 45 bucks for ten metal figures
any one knows of any good substitutes or have any good ideas for conversions
help me out. my desired # is 40 of them and im not looking to pay 180+ bucks for that
Basically, the regular 40k Ork Boyz have the needed stuff on their sprue: shoulder plates, an iron gob and helmet-wearing heads; since the 'ard Boyz are model-wise simply regulars equipped with two shoulder plates and the iron gob as some kind of face protection. Admittedly they have a bit fancier torsos to choose from and some other bitz made from pewter.
And of course, it must be mentioned that the bitz from one Ork Boyz' Box won't suffice to make 'em all into 'ard Boyz, but there's no loss in making the rest into other kinds of troops (as well as being a greenskin' player you might have extra bitz from other sprues anyways)
And if you fancy better armoured torsos (athough most of the front won't be seen unless inspecting from very close due to their hunched stature) and more variety you could mix in some fantasy Orks.
And you could ask fellow players if they could spare a few bitz of their own (or trade with exess bitz of yours), especially Space Marine shoulder pads also fit rather nicely (and gives your army a nice hodgepodge look)
if your lookin 4 a proper orky look jus get sum normal choppa boyz n give dem sum guns or sumthin, then get sum card or form board etc... then jus slap it on, proper bodge job
This is a perfect chance to exploit the orks MASSIVE conversion possiblities...
Buy a couple boxes of boyz, load 'em up in ALL the armour possible, throw in some left over tank tracks for shoulderpads :yes: , get just random peices of scrape, throw them on, heck, if your looking for lootas like me (or even if your not), throw on some torn up space marine shoulder pads!
Cheers, and happy mekanickin!
