Ork/Genestealer Hybridz - An Introduction

Back in the early 1990s, when instead a single slim paperback the Orks had two huge hardback reference volumes (Waaagh the Orks and Freebooterz there was a weird Ork Freebooter model - the Ork Genestealer Hybrid (below left). It was one of several weird and wonderful Ork models Citadel produced that included a Chaos Champion, Stormboy of Khorne and the Pirate Ork Kaptin Robobeard was converted from.

Well, I updated the concept and built an entire army of these hybrid monstrosities. And I've only just got around to photographing it.

So above there's the original Freebooter Hybrid, a Nob (converted from the Games Day 1998 Gorkamorka Nob) and a regular Boy. Front row are two old Genestealer familiars representing the young purestrain offspring.

More photos in the next few days.

Absolutely brilliant! Great conversions and paint job.

I was just plotting how to update my genestealer cult with some Ogryn hybrids... :)

Great stuff! Oddly enough, of all the Cult armies I've seen I've not seen any Ogryn Hybrids yet. They'd be so straight forward with some of the new Broodlord pieces and Biomorph sprues.

Got any pics of your army?

I've got some very old ogryn hybrid conversions from way back when. Needs a repaint and some love though.

Any chance of a tutorial, or the bits you used for these?

Tutorial - good idea.

Dakka Dakka - good idea. A few more picture and I think the photos will be at a critical mass where it looks like a full-on project.
