People are saying buy Fantasy Goblins to Convert to Gretchin. I was wondering how and what all do you need to make this conversion happen?
Basically, just some leftover weapons from the 40k Orks sprue (imperial lasguns do as well, as do any small calibre you can get a grip on)
then just cut off the spear or bow from the Goblin's arm and the slugga from the Ork arm (or shorten the barrel from the shoota, whatever is needed to make the weapon look a bit less impressive), glue them together, et voilÃ* - you got a gretchin blasta
Of course you can always add some extra bits if you so desire or if you wanna make some special 'runts.
Loads of exess ammo belts (and maybe some magazines cut off from some weapons) and you make a fine ammo'runt. And so on...
There is also a grot weapon sprue, it comes with 8 to 19 grot weapons on it, perfect if your converting goblins to grots
I could not find the Grot weapon spure on the website. Know where I could find this?
Also on subject the weapons from Necromunda work well also.
Grot weapon sprue? Sounds good. Do you have a link?
Also, fantasy grots can be armed easily by making simple muskets/shotguns from bits of plastic piping. I find that cotton buds (those things you stick in your ears) make good gun barrels if you cut the heads off. I usually load down all my grots with bags, boxes, ammo crates, etc. They are supposed to be an Ork force's slaves/scavengers after all and they can also double up as ammo runts, grot oilers and orderlies if needed.
Come to think of it, why convert them? It could be argued that a thrown spear or shortbow has the same effect as a grot blasta. (feeble range and low strength). They would especially be in character for Snakebite or Ferral Ork armies.
Also, in a White Dwarf there was a pic of gobs that just had ork arms and shootas. The reasoning was that the grots get blown back by the kick, making it horrendously innacurate.
