Default Vostroyan Ogryns

Im reworking my armies theme, turning them into a siege army instead of just a regiment. One of the component regiments of the 8th army will be a Vostroyan regiment who has ogryns.

Does anyone have any idea of how i could convert ogryns to look vostroyanish without the use of greenstuff cause i suck at that.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

I was gonna give the regiment the feril ogryns doctrine from one of the white dwarves. So that would work, but the vostroyans seem to have really nice decorations, how do you guys think i should represent this with my ogryns.

Gah, what was I thinking? I was Imagining Valhallans. It'll be difficult without greenstuff. As a side note, check the
=][= range for hand weapons for ogryns.

Those shakos would look daft on an Ogyrn. I say give them some Greenstuff bling (big regimental badge, chainmail and the like) and leave it at that. And use Fantasy Ogres. Ork shootas do quite nicely for ripper guns.

+++As above. Just model badges and purity seals to put on them. Maybe some extra armour would come in handy too.+++

I have used the same thing on my ogryns. Greenstuff-work don't have to be too extensive either.
I can post a pic if you want it.

i was under the impression that ogryns were supposed to look daft... ;D

I think it would add to the brute fell of the ogryns if you have them clunking off in to battle with the little hats on thier head like it means something.

Well... Vostroyans have links to the Mechanichus, no?

In that case, I would model bionics of some sort onto the Ogryns, such as a bionic eye or hand, and maybe throw in a respirator of some sort like most of the other Vostroyans have.

Fancy boots?
Greenstuff cape or jacket?
