Great Things About Ogryn!
But anyway, sorry for all that, on with Ogryn!
As I said in my post yesterday, I was inspired originally by Sonsoftaurus' Ogres to Ogryn conversions for his traitor guard army "The Scythiak Usurpation." But there is more to the story than that. My very first purchase of miniatures in the current era was a batch of Ork Boyz. I equipped them with pistols and choppas, which means I had a lot of primitive looking machine gun type parts left over. I have been determinedly looking for some way to use all those extra parts for some time. Oooh! I know, Ogryn!
I do have the Imperial Guard Codex, but since I am quite unfamiliar with it, I am thinking of having them count as something else. Therein lies the rub. I need to come up with something that is not only a good fit with my theme, but is able to be modeled by Ogres. One idea I had come up with was an all terminator Logan-wing. Should be easy enough to model, but I am not sure even my long-suffering gaming group would let that fly.
Since I currently have two army projects running, this is likely to be a while off in the future. As such, I at least have time to think. We'll see what I come up with.
