Here's an "honour guard" element for the Alien Warrior Caste army. The idea is that command stands in that army have guard units formed either of monstrous aliens with heavy weapons (in which role the old Tyranid warrior will serve) or primitive alien fighters (these orcs).

Very quick painting with contrast paints - as with the others, the base isn't finished but will do for now. I'm going to finalise the bases by aping the rocks on our terrain mats and applying a final drybrush.

I've got a five-model unit of these guys converted to slugga/choppa nobz using spare parts from the 40K nob frame.  Proved to be quite an annoying kitbash due to the daft way the 'ard boyz arms attach to their shoulders.  Still a pretty good match size-wise between the two kits.

Yeah - I had a moment of panic when I realised that I had two bodies without a full set of arms on the sprue. Conversions looked distinctly awkward! But then I unearthed some bits from another sprue, and the crisis was averted.
