Thank you .

I've hit a firework moment .

You know? When you want to focus on one thing but there are so many bright and sparkly ideas out there that you spend all your time watching and thinking... and no time actually DOING? Yep... it's like that at the moment.

I've got Ogryns in the form of Minotaurs on my mind...

...so I've ordered some cheap, Russian, 54mm Minotaurs ( http://www.tehnolog.ru/images/forthcoming/art_minotavri.jpg ) to act as donor models for the project. I've ordered 12 so there will be plenty to mess around with / chop up... and they cost £13.00 including postage so not very expensive at all.

I've also pre-ordered 3 lots of Ambots (six models in total - https://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Necromunda-Ambot-2019 ) to convert into Hearthguard Assault Frames (Space Marine Centurions)... and I must confess that I am extremely keen to get my hands on those ...

... and that means that I have sort of lost my sculpting muse and have stopped sleeping . Creative processes, eh?

YESSSSSSSSSSSS that kit looks so delicious, good on you. Unsure why I haven't ordered any myself yet, probably because I'm not 100% on what I'm using them for? Plus the Ambull itself is battering at my wallet

It could be that you just need to see a few scale and comparison pix to make your mind up. It also helps to know where in the big scheme of things, you are going to put them.

I am lucky because my army has two distinct factions (Astra Millitarum and Adeptus Astartes) so I have a few options. My one worry is that these Ambots end up bigger than the dreadnoughts I have built... it doesn't help that my Sentinels look almost as brutal as my Dreadnoughts and I really want my Dreads to look tough as nails (I'll probably end up giving them a gnarly paint scheme... with teeth ).

I will be converting the Ambots (but not too much) because, straight away, the waist is a bit spindly and the head is too bug-like. The rest should remain mostly the same.

When they arrive, I will be sure to get them photographed and compared for scale .

I have now finished both units and have included two Sgts with 'omniscope' conversion from bits of the kit .

I have included a note for each of the poses and all of the four possible poses are shown. For info, the right arm only fits in one position, whereas the left has two.

Anyway... here are the two units:
