Welcome to Librarium Online!
My Ork army needs to be fleshed out considerable in to meat shield department. Grots are in my humble opinion to expensive and not enough variety. So i have been looking at this combination for a nicely visious regiment of grots.
A box set or two of Gnoblar Fighters from the Fantasy Ogre Range outfitted with Tallern Desert Raider lasguns to give their grot blasters a desert long rifle feel. Give them some Orky gadgets and paint them pale grot green and I hope they look as good on the field as they do in my head.
Any thought or ideas about how i could improve on this idea?
Are those laspistols or lasguns you want? Most of the gnoblars have knives so it would be an easier conversion if you just get them leftover laspistols.
I was thinking of doing something similar, except using catachan lasguns and a variety of other gear. I'm still contemplating putting them all in trenchcoats and have them running around as guardsman wannabes.
In my opinion gnoblars would work fine, though some of the heads look a little odd. Goblins work just as well, but look less weedy.

Well the original idea came to me when i decided to make my Warbosses favorite grot the gnoblar trapper in the fur coat.
I personally love the look of the tallern desert raider lasguns, and they fit my desert themed Orks very well. I'm going to chop them up obviously to make them look more like 12" range weapons.
Just send me some pics when you are done, I would like to know how it comes out (I'm thinking of getting goblins or what you have for grots, don't know yet)
