I searched for 'Orc Marines' just now, and came across some pictures of Wessex Games' Panzerfäuste miniatures, which might be useful for you too.

They're basically fantasy races in WW2 kit, which, in a pinch, could work for your purpose...  :)

+++EDIT+++ And I found these guys from RAFM Miniatures, which als seem to fit within your concept!

Daeothar,

Thanks for the update. I do have a bunch of Panzerfauste and have looked at the RAFM. Nice figures.

I also have, on your recommendation, ordered Grunts. Like you said, it seems that people either love it
or hate it. I will give it a go and see what I think.

Just an idea - I used the Empire Militia bodies with Cadian arms holding lasguns.

In many cases I cut off the shoulder pads so the arms were just fabric.  It wasn't as hard as I expected, I discovered.

Probably Ghost Archipelago plastic bodies would work as well (I am building some  GA figures from the Empire Militia at the moment).

Not sure yet. Some sort of gang warfare.
Try to create some sort of story behind it that can lead to
a campaign style game. I found Shadowrun to complex for me.
I really couldn't follow history/timeline and what all the groups ect
were.
Just stumbled across this thread, have you seen the will Smith film bright? Posh elves ,orc gangs set in modern  usa.

No,

I have seen the film or even knew about it.
Thanks, I will look into that.

It's a clever flick.  I hope you enjoy it.
