Forgot I snapped this pic for a buddy - my "force" so far.  The game we're playing, Scrapheap, can be played with 4-5 minis a side in many instances, so it's nice to have a wide variety to choose from.  I have another...eight(?) bodies on hand so I will eventually fill those out, and have several NPCs I'll need to construct.

Thanks, it's been a whirldwind.  My buddy and I started playing, then stumbled into some 40K players looking for something different, and then it's become "let's play Scrapheap" constantly.  Must avoid burnout... :D

So you have a sci-fi version, too? Please let us know if and when you have playtest rules available for the public  :D

If I may ask a process question, how are you getting such a nice fit with those Mechanicus heads on Orlock bodies. I am trying to work this conversion and the fit is extremely poor. Any advice would be much appreciated!

And thanks for this thread--very inspiring!

I definitely had to trim down the necks in some instances, and occasionally file off the bottom of some of the head/neck joins, etc.  They're not particularly clean fit in some cases.  Just enough to look the part.  Also certain bodies have wider jacket collars than others (slightly) and are more amenable.  I think I've also shortened the necks for almost all of them.

In Scrapheap, gangs can hire up to one "Monstrosity"...i.e. a big hulking creature, robot, etc.  So I snagged a box of Ogryns to split with my nephew and built up "Lucky Number 13" (because he's the 13th miniature of 2022...).  He'll be an Ogryn for hire for my Orlocks or the next Outcast gang I'll be assembling as a religious order.

That Ogryn is ace. It could easily be a big robot as well. Loving it.

That's a great looking big fella.  Also, 13 figures already this year!  I'm quite jealous of your productivity  ;) (I'm only at five so far - and they were simple critters).
