I've started playing Necromunda. I had some orks form gorkamorka, but no trukks nor buggyz yet. So I've decided to play my orks as Goliath gang.

I've used my Weapon Converter:

Shoota > Autogun
Slugga > Autopistol
Six Shoota > Stubgun
Choppa > Club or Maul or Sword
Granades > Krak or Frag nades

There is one special weapon: one spanner has flammer looking backpack. I've used him as a Heavy with Flammer.

I'm thinking about giving my boyz some real 'eavy weaponz (like H.Stubber or Rokkit Launcha by konverting autogunz or pistolz, but dont have suitable Orkz yet).

Use a Big Shooter Ork as a Heavy Stubber! Much the same type of gun.

And there's no reason why an Ork couldn't "loot" a Lasgun or two! CoolOrkDark.gif
Just "ork" them up a bit and presto, 2+ ammo rolls! CoolOrkDark.gif

I think that shootas, sluggas and big shootas would be more accurately represented by bolters, bolt pistols and heavy bolters... mainly because of that orky ammo roll.

I was thinking of doing omehting like this if I were to start necromunda. Heres my conversion table thingy:

Shoota - autogun or maybe boltgun?
Slugga with ammo clip - autopistol
Slugga with no ammo clip or any revolver style gun - stubgun
axe choppa - club
sword choppa - sword
Chainsword choppa - chainsword
Burna - flamer
Big shoota - heavy stubber

For weapons with no ork counterpart, I'll just give the ork the actual weapon pphhtork.gif

And model wise:
Leader - nob sized model
Ganger - ork boy
Heavy - ork boy with the special or heavy weapon, maybe loota models.
juve - grotz maybe?

Hope this helps! biggrin2.gif


the age of the 'umies is over, the time of the orks has come.

before there were orks, "Games Workshop" was called "Games Wbeakiehop"
