Since there are very few actual Rebel Grot models I need to do a lot of conversions to build a full army. I try to keep most of these simple so that I’ll actually be able to get them all done. So far I’ve used 2nd ed gretchin with small green-stuff mods, and I’ve used fantasy grots with 40k equipment. I’ve also used some of Necromunda starter box models as a source of weapons. Here’s an Orlock ganger. I’ve used a couple of these to provide lasguns. The right arm attaches at the shoulder and the left hand is molded onto the gun.
To use these I took the hands off of goblin arms and and lined them up to match at the wrists. It was a bit of an awkward conversion but it works well enough. Here’s an example of how it came out.
Then it occurred to me that I could cut the model at the waist and neck, then add goblin legs and head. This prevents me from needing to line up the arms (which was a chore) and has the added benefit of adding a torso that can already pass for wearing flak armor. I’m quite happy with the result:
And here’s a comparison between the original and converted models. The effective height is about the same which will help the grots play more like guard on the table.
