Default Tanith heavy/special weapon teams... where can I get some?

Is there anywhere i could get Tanith Heavy/special weapon units?

A link would be handy... i don't care where it is from country wise... i just want to know wether i can get them or not. If not i'm going to have to convert Catachan Heavy weapons and special weapons teams

Hmmm... I don't think so.

But!

Hope Remains!

Heres a quick way to convert Catachans to Tanith...ians...?

Take your Catachan Trooper, and some Greenstuff.

GS a cloak [it can be smooth and low-quality... camo-ing will deny the need for folds and detail on the cloak, but the extra work never hurt anyone], and then work on the arms. Most Catachan arms look like they belong to Arnie. You may want to sand them smooth of thier 'guns' and then GS some sleeves. Ripped sleeves look good!

Throw a few Space Marine scopes around, a few heavy and special weapons, and HEY! You've got Tanith!

Good luck!

that was my basic idea for them...
I'll be getting a load of tanith from UK online stores hopfully... like i said, when the money comes around.
For now i am planning a 500-750-1000 point list of Tanith Ghosts.

EDIT
New idea...
Necromunda Heavy Gangers. Specifically... these, with a bit of converting.
--1--
--2--
--3--
--4--

I'll have to add cloaks and get rid of certain bits... but overall it should do. The stubber one will be an autcannon.

However i still might go with a Catachan Heavy weapons box, a box of catachans (to covert) and the rest tanith models. I need some more Catachans anyway

looking at the necromunda heavies the best would prob be the orlocks as the other 2 don't look quite right. You could also use the female necromunda gang as there are quite afew females in the Tanith.

Wow so many Tanith threads. Anywho, you should convert catachans. At least one autocannon team should be Bragg.

Madmonkeyrtu dug them all up; they're from weeks back. Guess the man has Tanith fever...bet he's got facial tattoos and a camo cape that he wears on special occasions.
