Holy crap, seems like ForgeWorld likes Orks! They never release enough of 'em, which is good fer us!

Incorporating Fantasy Orcs model into WH40k Orks Part 1

Its great that Games Workshop made both Fantasy Orcs and 40k Orks to be similar in looks. The better
news is that most of the Orc pieces are the same size as their 40k counterpart. Many veteran Ork modellers definitely will have some Fantasy Orc bits incorporated into their 40k Orks (and some vice versa). In this post, I'll go down the some of the potential Orc pieces that can be used in your Ork army.

Warhammer Fantasy Black Orcs

Description from Games Workshop:

Black Orcs are the biggest and strongest of all Orcs, and get their name from their dour, grim demeanour as much as from the colour of their skin, which is extremely dark green or black.They take war much more seriously than other Orcs and have the best equipment. Many of their fearsome weapons are captured in battle, and carried as a mark of their self-evident superiority, while others are paid in tribute by subjugated tribes.

This multi-part plastic boxed set contains 10 Black Orcs, which can be assembled with double handed weapons or choppas and includes options for a Champion, Standard Bearer and Musician.

Retail Price : USD28.00 / GBP17.00
Amazon Price : ~USD18.99
These guys make good Nobz in 'eavy armor and comes together with big Choppas (double handed weapons). You can make swap it by adding Nob sluggas and Power Klaw bits. There are people around the net who uses it as a 'ard Boyz squad too. They will also look great as a Warbiker Nob by doing some modifications to its legs to fit in a Warbike (or Warboar :P).

Flash gitz maybe possible too by adding in kustom made snazzguns, or getting them from a bits store online. Plus, the Ork Standard looks might awesome too.

Orc and Goblin Cave Squig Herd

Description from Games Workshop

Squigs are weird beasties - part fungus, part flesh, but mostly teeth and claws. Although they are wild and dangerous creatures, it is possible to herd them towards the enemy by means of pitchforks, firebrands and the beating of loud drums.

Retail Price : USD19.75 / GBP 12.00

You may need these metal blister squids for a few reasons, as Tankbusta Squig variant, Attack Squig for your Warboss, as a Angry Squig model if you successfuly turn a enemy IC using Old Zogworth's power, to accompany your Grotz and Runtherd, or simply stick it to your Ork vehicles for decoration purpose. Orks are a fun race, and squigs just add more flava into it. :D

Orc Warriors Regiment

* Sorry I can't able to find sprues of them around the internet...

Description from Games Workshop

Even the smallest Orcs pack a great deal of bone, muscle and bloody-mindedness into a body as tall as a man and substantially broader. Orcs are tougher than any normal man, although less nimble, and far less organised, which is why Orc Bosses have to be even more brutal than the Orcs they lead.
This box set contains 19 multi-part plastic Orc Boyz, which can be assembled with spears or choppas and includes options for a Champion, Standard Bearer and Musician.

Retail Price : USD35.00 / GBP18.00
Amazon Price : USD24.49

These guys look the same as your regular Ork Boyz. You are bound to have extra shoota or slugga arms for you can only make 10 shootas or 10 sluggas from a Ork Boyz set. The different look choppas and heads is also good to add more variety to your Boyz. Plus, 19 Orc Boyz for less than two times of the Ork Boyz box is already a good bargain. With some proppa modifications, you may even convert them to Tankbustas (add rokkits and tankbusta bombs from the Ork Boyz sprue) or Kommandos (by painting camo on them). They fit in any regular boyz' torso and legs so you're free to mix and match to fit them anywhere!

I've also mentioned the new Orc Boarboyz in the previous post, so its a good idea to get these guys too.

In the next part I'll scour more miniatures in the Warhammer Fantasy line that can be converted to fit in a WH40k Orks army. Stay tuned!
