Comparison shots are always useful, but don't go to any trouble for my sake. As it happens, I just found some useful ones anyway:
Hi All, I'm part-way through painting my Cannon Fodder kit and I'm really enjoying this kit, how is everyone else finding the kit? And are you using them as "Conscripts" or something else?wargamesatlantic.com
Ah, restrictions on the number of fighters would make a huge difference. I'm tempted to cut it down to 5 Scum and add another Champ to make it a more viable gang.Orks can be done so many ways in the Hive. Two players in our campaign are currently running them - One is using Goliath rules, with everyone having T4. The other using using venator rules, representing an Ork Boss and a couple of champions that have won the hearts of some puny humans for their underhive misadventures.
Using Outcasts you could give the warboss any profile, or use any of the guilds as the eladwr and champion/s. Lots of options to increase the Toughness.
One thing to consider is that a lot of scenarios have restrictions on the numbers of fighters included in the battle. So there is a good chance you won’t be able to include all 12 of them, may be better throwing a few of grots in the trash and giving everyone a bit of mesh armour.
ps: gladiators look great, and what are you going to do with the squat?
