Feral Human Models: THE KROGGS by Proiteus Feral Human Models: THE KROGGS by Proiteus
I’ve always been a fan of barbaric humans in Sci-fi films such as Mad Max and Waterworld. I’ve been thinking of doing an army based on them for some time now.

I’ve looked at different armies to portray these characteristics with such as Chaos Berserkers and Orks, Guard are out the question as I want to break away from shooty based armies and combat is big no for guard!

In the end I decided to go with Orks as they seem best suited for a barbaric civilization from a toxic industrial death world. I’ve decided to call them ‘The Kroggs’ as it sounds very suited to their background. Well here are the conversions.


The Krogg Boyz
The base for the conversions are the chaos marauders with a few Catachan bits thrown in, these guys have to be beefy and brutal enough to represent ork boyz. Their heads are from ‘;Pig Iron’ and suit their character very well. They are 3 types of weapons that the boyz will be armed with: The first is one on the left with the massive axe weapon created using the frail arms; the second on the right is an example of boyz that will be using 1 or 2 smaller weapon using the arms from the beastmen set. Now the Slugga pistols are too heavy for these guys to hold in one hand so I plan to model them holding them like rifles using the Catachan arms with their close combat weapon on their back.
The Krogg Nob
For the Nobs I thought about using Orgyn or Ogre models but first I wanted to try out an armoured up version of the standard boyz by adding a few chaos berserker bits and I have to say he certainly looks the part, sadly I didn’t have a power klaw so I armed him with a large knife instead.

Now my only question is…

“Do you think they look suitable and hard enough to represent Orks?”

I though because they come from such a barren world they’re bodies would be a lot tougher than that of an ordinary human. Anyway any feedback on them would be very grateful.

Yeah, I like them. I started a group of ork models but painted them up as Hell's Angels with faded jeans/dungarees, white t-shirts, black leather and pale human skin.

I don't play tournaments, so I always enjoy working on and seeing alternative concepts for the main armies.

Lately, I'm actually only buying Hasslefree Grymn and Pig Iron Kolony. I'll send you a pic of some if you want. They don't fit with this project, but may still be interesting.

maybe condised using some ogryn parts, like replace an arm or two or a head here and there to represent more major stuff-ups with the mutation etc.
