Welcome to Librarium Online!
I love the Ork Special characters (with the exception of Ghazgull, he steals too much of the limelight) and I have always wanted to convert one since I started 40K. Then guess what, a friend gives me Ghazgull Thraka for my birthday knowing full well his fighting style would muck up my battle plans, so what happens?
The next time he played me I had brought along the new converted Ghazghull : Nazdreg using reference from the codex picturre. Now I had the use of his special rules so that I have four Heavy Support choices and so he faced:
2 Lobbas all souped up to the max with loads of extra krew slavers and a mekboy.
1 Looted Leman Russ
2 Killer Kans
1 Battlewagon with zzap cannon
Thanks to Nazdregs amazing shooting skill and my four Heavy Support choices I won hands down (I always do anyway).
So why doesn't anybody else seem to field him and why don't GW bring out a minature?
because Nazdreg is un orky and doesnt really flow with the whole WAGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!&# 33;!!!!!!!!!!!!!!&# 33;!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thing hes some weedy little git who walks around with big guns... get the tau if thats what you whant sure hes good soooo much heavy support... but hes unorky and soooo much heavy support is unorky unless its dreadnoughts or killa kans!!!!!! WAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!& #33;!!!!!!!! da orks
people don't use him because most people never thing to convert him
and like Warlord Urzbag said he is unorky

I think Nazdreg rocks as an ork (besides being a bad moon) its just that he's never been a really big selling point for GW. I mean, he's never really done anything major in the universe that concerns alot of people. Thus, no reason to buy, thus, no new model. There is the weedy old one however.
But you did the right thing converting the Ghazzie model. I'd like to see what the final product looks like.
"Where dere's wun - dere's ple'ty more!"
well yea i do have to salute you on the conversion and I guess if he was the gazzi model he could be kind of orky...
