I’ve finally found a good day to get primer on some ratmen. So that’s good. My enthusiasm for Green Gorilla Orks is still waining a bit so I’ll see if I can finish this squad of jump pack boys.
Honestly I’m still stuck in Goliath zone. Especially as I’ve just received 12 unpainted, unglued 1995 plastic Goliaths!! Oh yes, I see a few more short and stocky Juve/Bully models being converted up soon.
Now to comply with modern rules I’ll assemble them up from the HoC Bully Weapon list. But I don’t need 12.
So crazy option no.2 - Modernise the 1995 boys.
Plenty of stubcannon arms from the plastic sprues left, plus necks and heads. Should I make up a couple of autogun/lasgun Bully boys for ORB/NCE games?!? I can then use a mix of newer and older models for both! Dunno.
I say do crazy option no.2! If it's any encouragement, the new-style goliaths will fit onto a 25mm cylindrical base instead of the usual chamfered. Having an autogunner who's now defunct with HoC, I'm tempted to change all my gangers with pre-17 viable weapons (and stubcannon can just be big shotguns) to pinned bases so that I can swap them over if/when I persuade my group to try NCE.
