Hungry Ghosts of Tomorrow Today, Part 2

Since I am a compulsive converter, and the latest IG Codex really blew open the possibilities for special troops and characters, the first Hungry Ghosts post for August will be another preview of works in progress for moving beyond 1500 points.

Legios Moriad XIV Military Commissariat
Voenkom Rycraik is the Hungry Ghosts' version of Commissar Yarrick, an Exo-Armour Chaos Squats with a Power Scourge instead of Claw (from the Khorne Blood Slaughterer) and Baleful Eye taken from an Eldar Fusion Gun.
Partly painted in regimental colors.

Commissar Lord Don Bug Volga
The Commissar Lord will scuttle about the battlefield in a four-legged walker with the Squat Living Ancestor Sidecar in the center.

Commissars Ob Dnieper and Amur Yenesei

Regimental AdvisorsMaster of the Fleet Admiral "Black Hole" Tunnler,
with the remains of his last meal.
One of the Pirate Squats.

Astropath Arc Wendigo with vestigial wings and Ratlord Familiar.
Another of the Pirate Squats.

Special Characters
Gunnery Sergeant Harker, taking on the 'nids in their own mutation game.
The Smurf-Hat Squat Adventurer with the first version of the Rogue Trader Grenade Launcher.

Colonel Schtarken now with Bodyguards with Zombie Eyes,
from Bob Olley's series of Squat Troopers

Finally, the nucleus of a second Veterans Squad, likely to tunnel through the battlefield with a Ramshackle Games Boring Machine (http://shop.ramshacklegames.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6&products_id=211)


  1. That's terrific. I simply love the Yarrick, but I also can't wait to see how the Commissar Lord turns out.

  2. I'm Excited now for the boring machine.

  3. Your Yarrick conversion means there's one less Khorne Tricycle out there. And for that we are all thankful.

  4. I also can't wait to see what my Commissar Lord will finally look like (if you've been follow the Hungry Ghosts you know that each complicated conversion is a product of a kernel of inspiration and plenty of evolution.

    I'm not sure why, but since childhood I have been anti-sidecar and pro-4-legged robowalkers.

    My Dear Curis, though, nothing can stop the Khorne Tricycles. Not only do I have the other Exos to convert to Chaos, but also the Exo-Armor Space Dwarfs sculpted by Bob Olley for Fantastic Miniatures. And the posts about my Rough Riders should show that I can construct a motorcycle out of just about any pile of bits.

    The Termite Boring Machine is finished, and is next in line for posting. Now I can justify buying the Ramshackle Games Boring Machine for my next squad of veterans.
