Default Ratlings

I was wondering - the old ratling models are getting a little outdated now, and so with that in mind, what would be the best citadel miniature to convert into a ratling squad? I was thinking Hobbits, but if anyone has any better suggestions please let me know. Thanks.

If you are thinking LOTR Hobbits, you're out of luck if you want to go to a tournament, tis not tournament legal. And I dont see anything on the GW shopping site that you could use, sorry :-\

Just convert some guardsmen to have sniper rifles and use them as ratlings, no one likes the hobits anyway.

They'd have to be exceptionally feeble guardsmen with that statline...or possibly children. :-\

So, with that in mind, perhaps you could convert some Necromunda juves to carry sniper rifles?

If your guard army was a real techie army you could convert drones sort of like tau drones. It would go with the weak statline of the ratlings.

My army deeply mistrusts cybernetic augmentation and AI, which kinda rules out drones and servo skulls.
