TTCombat has new miniatures for his "Carneval" and some of them look like they could be converted into Necromunda House Catallus. For example, top right and bottom left. I also find some other miniatures from the series interesting.

So I would be interested if anyone knows the Carneval miniatures and can compare their size with Necromunda miniatures?

Some of the other stuff on there looks really cool too! There's the bird rider guys, and the little guy in the plague mask might be useful to convert a cawdor stig-shambler if you need to do that.

In the first post I put a link to Gang War Miniatures on Shapeways. I have most (maybe all) of them and like them a lot. I also have the Heresy minis that @Pagumb mentioned above and they are really good too. Gang War Miniatures are 3D printed plastic and the Heresy ones are metal.

IMO she'd make a fine upscaled heavy stubber wielding catachan, but she doesn't look the slightest bit ogryn...
Well considering there is no official 40k female ogryns, and males and females rarely looks the same, who can say for sure, but thanks for the input as that makes it easier to make her stats :)

Oh and yeah she was made as a Catachan Ogryn by the designer.

Are lady Ogryns better or worse shots than males? :unsure:

Traditionally the chap Ogryn's Ripper Guns were burst-limited to stop them expending all of their ammunition in one loud, spectacular blast. Giving one an unrestricted heavy stubber sounds like a bad/amazing idea!

Also, I have to agree she doesn't look very Ogryn. She's come from the same old skool D&D realm of thought that makes male lizardmen well... lizardmen, and gives the females inexplicable breasts and beach ready bikini bods (If I wasn't at work I'd post an Oglaf.com comic which covers this nicely, but alas it's NSFW).

I’d say she’s more hot Goliath babe….

And that D&D aesthetic carries over to anime. Just check out “That time I was reincarnated as a slime”. Female lizard-people upgrade to hot human babes, male lizard-people upgrade to dragon-newts that still look like lizards. Or the new one Fruit of Evolution where a pink gorilla and a pony evolve into human babes.

I'm not sure if the sex of official ogryn models has ever been stated, so they could all be females for all we know! ;)

But yeah, as Stoof said, it represents a design philosophy that is a pet peeve for me - one wherein the females of a 'monstrous' species/sub-species are portrayed as decidedly more humanlike than the males. Of course sexual dimorphism does exist, but in cases like this where the presumed males look like big-headed muscle babies, I have a hard time imagining the females as nine-feet-tall baseline-human-proportioned bodybuilders with inexplicably chest-concentrated fat reserves on their otherwise soft-tissue devoid bodies. :LOL:



But don't let my ramblings put you off on using her as an ogryn, like I said, it's just a pet peeve and I'm a crotchety grognard. And it is a gorgeous sculpt in any case!

There are - a lot - of female ogryns in the 2020 advent Necromunda novella, Spark of Revolution, by Gary Kloster (on BL site here). Well worth checking out.

There are many slaves at the same factory that the main character is a slave, including juves, who clearly are female:

Setting down the bucket, Breaker looked up at the ogryn standing over him. She was called Pulley, just out of the juvehalls where the young ogryns worked with the smaller equipment. A bruise mottled half of Pulley’s face. Many of the ogryns bore marks like that now.

Later, after being cast aside, he meets a runaway with a BONE unit who is a rogue doc:

Bent over one of those tables, sorting supplies, was an ogryn – the woman Breaker had seen in the darkness.
‘Told you he’d live,’ she said.
‘No,’ Breaker said, and she frowned. ‘Little,’ he admitted. Torque was unsettling. The way she moved, her expressions, the way she talked. She seemed more human than ogryn.
But ogryn she was. Torque was almost as tall as Breaker Brass, and she had the same massive musculature, the same dark skIn, the same yellow eyes, the same frizzy red hair as him and almost all the other ogryns that worked in this sector of the hive. But… she was strange.

Definitely would prefer a female ogryn to not be a WWE pinup model, especially given the sole real representation of female ogryns in literature shows them to be very similar to their male compadres. But tastes vary - but I do hope the designer at least is aware of Spark of Revolution :)
