That's a very good idea of them... hadn't seen that at all!
My concern would be scale, I've seen some good looking diggas made from the khorne bloodreavers, but they're kind of bigger than the space orks. I'm guessing that while these guys aren't as beefy as the bloodreavers they may be just as tall.

Looking at how hunched-over several of the poses are, I think they'd actually make for great greenskins!
Weapon swaps and filing the armour into blockier shapes would be easy but gw ork heads might be a bit too bulky. I've heard that kromlec heads are a bit smaller but have no direct experience.

I have ordered the bits to make some Kairic accolytes (without the heads) from Bitzbox, and I will report back on the size/scale when they arrive.

I figured the torsos would be good for Goliaths.

EDIT - The models arrived today. They are very tall, and not very heavily built (more like a basketball player than a strongman.) I don't think I will use them for Goliath conversions, but I imagine I will eventually find a use for them.

@Unslain - I don't think you would want to use them for Orks.

I will try to take some photos with other models in the shot for comparison. It is too rainy and dull today though.

hmm... some potential for massive pit salves... or more likely I think some scaly alternatives... but otherwise... orks look like a very good fit!

I've ordered some of those 15mm Close Combat guys, just to give me a break from painting 28mm.

Like the post, but hate the terrain. There is just something .... wrong about it. Can't exactly put my finger on it though.

I can confirm these are just as nice 'in the flesh' as on screen.

I bought a set of close combat guys to paint up just for fun, and as a break from all my current projects. They're still in the box at present as they only came last week, but I'm really looking forward to getting some paint on them.

Cool stuff, I've made a couple of ork-ish trucks, once I get photo privileges I'll put them up.

Maybe a bit controversial, but I always thought of using Chaos Cultists with orky rules. They look nuts enough! Also not a lot of skin on display or faces so could pass by by if not too fussy with the aesthetics.
