Default Ogryns Alternatives

Now, with the new Imperial Guard Codex coming and the fact, that they'll be overall decrease in point cost, I wanted to get some CC-units. Rough Rider is kinda iffy for me. Ogryns, on the other hand, have more pleasing appeal e.g. they're big and stompy much like the Nobz I play. So, I was wondering if they were alternatives to the current Orgyn models. I got 2 ideas right now. One of them is using Warhammer Fantasy's Orge Kingdom's Leadbelchers. There's a picture below:

The second idea was to emulate this guy's O.G.R.Y.N.s. I can get get some spare AoBR Terminators from some of my friends and my LGS sell them separately from the AoBR Box Set.

So, what you guys think? And if you have other alternative ideas, please don't hesitate to post up the idea

I didn't like the Ogryn models at all. not the new ones either.
Doesn't look too good, too expensive, metal etc.

Some time ago I used normal Ogre Bulls and converted them a little:

A little GS and orky bits, and there you go Ready for a stompin!

The iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you?re a god or a total bastard. The iron will always kick you the real deal. The iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But, two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.

I like the idea of those O.G.R.Y.N.S. But they are not 40K if you know what i mean.... I quite like the new ogryn models.. But not enough to buy some...
Sorry if my posts are messy or unreadable. My keyboard is naff!

I like your idea, King Winter. I agree getting the Ogre Kingdom Bulls will give me more models per dollar plus I got some Nobz Bitz to spare Thanks. A lock please then. I already got my answer.

I would say out of all of them I really like King Winter's models. That looks extremely nice and IMO very 40k...very impressed at how it turned out. I think if I decide to get some for my Imp Guard I will probably go that route as they are quite costly models!
