My Catachan arms & guns bitz came in, as did the two boxes of Ungor that I had ordered from the FLGS. So Saturday afternoon and evening was spent combining the two into a cannon fodder platoon.
I have 21 in all, plus one of my renegade enforcer models (not shown) to function as a commissar/prefect/goat herder (depending on the list used). Again there was little to no additional cutting or conversion work to do. The Arms fit well enough as is. About the only issue was trying to align the left arms with the guns they were supposed to be supporting. However I tried adding in a few of the Ungor shield arms and rather liked that (eliminating the left supporting arm issue altogether). I think I'll add a few loose/slung shields to some of their backs (on models with shoulder straps).
There's no rules for standard bearers in conscript platoons & their like, but it looked cool. Along with the random shields, it gives them a good 'tribal horde' feel. Also, as was suggested in my last post on these guys, I went with two flamers for special weapons. The odds of hitting with anything else barring a GL frag round is just about nil.
