So I've pretty much given up hope on GW releasing a plastic Grotesque kit or even getting more finecast ones in stock. I can't even find any unpainted ones on ebay. So my only option at this point seems to be some kind of conversion.

Those new Stormfiends actually look great. I think I could make a decent conversion out of them using extra heads from the talos/cronos kit.

My only concern is the size. If they are the size of Thanquol and Boneripper I don't think it will work. Maybe when people start buying/painting/posting pictures of them I can get an idea of the scale.

I just wanted to hear other people's opinions on this topic or what you personally use as grotesques.

Thank you.

Judging from the pictures I've seen of the new army box, Stormfiends are a bit bigger than normal Rat Ogres, but not quite as big as Carnifexes.
They sure could make for nice Grotesque conversions. But the problem I generally see with Rat Ogres is the amount of fur on them, which I don't think suits something that was supposedly an Eldar before.

By the way, I quite like the little "Zoantrats" on their backs. Smile

They dont have much fur and that can be filed off.

Me too ....

The storm fiend box is a 3 model - 101 piece plastic kit and runs $62 USD retail which is still better than buying 3 finecast grotesques (if you can find them). Kitbash them with extras from the talos/cronos box and they are good to go. My only problem is that I would need to buy extra bases.

What bases do you need? I have a few 40mm round.

I thought these would make great Grot conversions when I saw them last week. Some of the weapons look like they could be cool for liqufiers.

Fur doesnt look like much of a problem since they are armored up. All those tubes on them too are just too perfect.
