I was wondering what the plausibility of using Beastmen Standins for my WoC army would be. I want to avoid some of these ugly ancient models that are still the best GW can offer us.
Chiefly, I was thinking of using Gors/Bestigors in place of marauders (Or perhaps in conjunction with the others - I have a regiment of the plastic marauders now that I might make Wulfrik's dedicated unit to stay fluffy)
Then I started thinking about Minotaurs instead of Chaos Ogres (Hideous models!), maybe even centaurs as marauder horsemen or a gorghon as a chaos giant.
What do you think of this idea?
Are the model sizes pretty comparable, as it seems?
Would this be legal in tournament? Assuming of course the addition of extra chaos-ey bits, banners and a paint scheme to match my warriors.
I don't know about tournament legality, but I would applaud your style for doing it.
This also gives you the option of buying a couple of extra bits and having most of a Beastman army to hand.
But if you prefer the asthetic of beastmen, have you considered just playing a beastman army?
It's definitely tournament-legal, as long as you clearly state what they are (and they're GW miniatures, of course). Bestigors are quite a bit larger than Marauders, though, so I'd recommend Gor torsos with Bestigor Great Weapon arms. I've also seen Marauder or even Chaos Warrior heads on these Gor torsos (which I think is pretty boss). Chaos Ogres are terrible, so I wouldn't bother proxying them.
