Changed this thread from just tankbustas to include more oddboys, including kommandos, burnas, and lootas. I will put mini meks here too.

Finally got some pictures today of the 4 units of 15 tankbustas, plus a nob each (since one might want 15 without the nob.) I have an extra set of bomb squigs since in an Apoc battle I can see using MSU tankbustas with max bomb squigs each. I may prep more squigs, but this is a lot for now. The weirdos with the spears or without arms are future tank hamma guys. I don't like tank hammas but I will prep some anyway. BTW, these are all on magnetic sheeting in a box, so with washer bases, they don't bang around. The tankbusta nobs in the bottom shot show the rebasing I did from 25mm to 32 mm. I did not want to use the same mini over and over, so I just used the arm with metal nobs, and made a box launcher "pistol" for one.

That is a LOT of Tankbustas! You could take out a Titan with that lot!

Love the conversions for the Nobz, I have 3 of them, and left them standard, which TBH, I don't like.

The plan is to build each unit with a full 15 basic kommandos, plus Kommando nob, plus 2 dedicated burnas for 18 figures per unit. Most of the units are not complete yet and need a couple more basic kommandos. Rokkits or big shootas will come from the ones in their matching Korps.

 

Kommando Burnas: Some of the burnas have my tiny laser cut fuel cans on their backs as a fuel supply.

 

Most of the units are complete units of old metal kommandos from second edition. I plan to replace all the burna heads with the Ork Iron Mask Heads from Kromlech

 

Spoiler Summary: Eight-celled tray of 7 Kommando units with Snikrot and misc in last cell

I promise to take better pictures of each unit as I improve them. Remaining work is getting final couple figures painted, repairing as needed, and touching them up. I have a pile of backpacks for the lower left (sentinel camoed boys) to make them look better.
