Default fantasie orks in 40k

hi all

I've been reading about you guy's buying fantasy orks to use in 40k armies

i was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers how to do so
I'm not very skilled with greenstuf but practice makes perfect right

i was thinking to buy a box of goblins to use as grots

greetings from da fist

Changing Fantasy Orks into 40K orks usually involves chopping off one of the Choppas and gluing on a Slugga. You can take one of the Shootas and chop off the long barrel. Glue on a shortened plastic tube for the Sluggas' barrel and then glue the gun onto the same hand you've just removed the one choppa from.

Best regards,

If you wanted to be real simple with the Goblins, you could just glue them onto round bases and you have insta-Grots.

If you want to actually give them 40K weaponry, you could chop off their regular weapons and glue on a slugga or shoota.

Ask your friends that play other armies if they have any extra guns of any sort...IG arms are almost identical to a Goblins arm as well so feel free to use them if you can get your hands on some. I have used chopped down Necon Gauze weapons, bolters, cut down sluggas/shootas, lasguns and even pistol from the Empire Fantasy range. On the goblin spure you will find arms that are simply fist, holding spears and bows, these are prime arms for using for a grot blasta. The bows can also be turned into daggers by cutting off half the bow.

As for orks will just take the slugga or shoota arms/bitz you didn;t use in your last box of 40k orks and glue them to the fantasy ones instead. Remeber that a box of 40k orks comes with 16 slugga/choppa complete arms and 16 shoota complete arms. That leaves you with plenty of left over bitz to use. There is no need to cut off choppas and gluing on a slugga to a fantasy ork since the arms are the same.

There's a few ways to make Nobs. You can pickup some Black Orcs from the fantasy line and do some converting as mentioned previously. The Black Orcs are rather beefy and make pretty good looking Nobs.

If you want the cheaper way, which is what I do, then you need to get some greenstuff and do some work on a normal boy. What I do is greenstuff over their arms to make them bulkier. It takes some practice, I'm no expert yet, but it's not that hard to do, just takes time since you need to do it in stages. Hope IVEATCH doesn't mind, but here's a link to where I learned to GS the arms: http://www.the-waaagh.com/forums/ind...dpost&p=326801

Since I have been advocating buying fantasy ork for about 2 weeks now I decided to buy a box myself...hahahahahaha.
[glow=red,2,300]WOW [/glow] is all I can say 4 boyz have hoods on there heads, 4 butcher blades, 2 types of choppa (sword type) that are different, face mask bit, similar to a black ork, for the NOB, 48 glyphs, and a giant cow skull.
