    Cheap Scavvies

    I'm afraid I can't find the (non-LO) blog where I saw this idea a while ago, but the old Skaven clanrats - or current night runners - while not very ratty actually make quite a decent base for some kind of stunted and deformed humans. Here's an example:



    This isn't the point of my post though. I had a bunch of the old 2nd edition Gretchin lying around - I'd actually been trying (unsuccessfully) to sell them when I realised that they're actually pretty similar in size. Again, I had seen people update these models with head swaps (either Goblin heads for Grotz or Cadian heads for Squats) and I realised that I could do something similar:



    Just a simple head swap and one or two other minor conversions scattered throughout (every model has a head swap and one other change). As I say, these are about the same size as the Skaven-based models:



    And here I some that I painted - nothing too fancy, since they're still not the greatest models, but it's easy enough to knock out a small horde:





    Despite having to convert every single one, I really found that they were surprisingly quick because of the one-piece base model (no separate arms, legs, etc here). They were also practically free, since I had the bitz lying around with no real other use anyway. Now I just need to find an excuse to field loads of autogun-armed scavvies... Perhaps I'll find use for them as Nurgle Cultists (40k).

    Those actually look really cool! I was a bit dubious at the conversions but seeing them painted up really won me over. They're great! They'd be cool Ratlings as well thinking about it.

    So why the conversions? Are you starting up a Necromunda Campaign?

    Thanks. I did also think that they might make good Ratlings. The one third from left in the penultimate picture definitely reminded me of one.

    Sadly, no immediate prospects of Necromunda. I've not felt like adding anything to my WoC while waiting for the whole End Times/new edition to resolve, but I've still been aiming to tackle my sprue mountain, so this just seemed like a good idea to do something with some old models that were basically worthless. Of course, now I have the idea of making a Scavvy gang I just went and bought some more Skaven so that I can do some without autoguns... Perhaps if I make a gang I'll see whether I can find anyone to play Necromunda. Otherwise, I thought they might work in 40k too but I've not played that since the early days of 6th edition, so really this was just a modelling project for now.
