If they are plastic models you might be able to pirece them using a very hot needle.
Place the other end of the needle into a cork and heat the sharp tip. Should melt through plastic,
However, you'll get a burr and if you haven't a drill i doubt you have any files.
In theory you could carefully cut the burr off with a craft knife.

when all's said and done you might be better off getting a pin vise or a handrill


EDIT: actually this thread should be in modelling and minis really

Try taking a hobby knife (or barring that, a very narrow kitchen knife) and spinning the tip of the blade on the base. It will function as a crude drill well enough so that you can get a model's peg into the base hole. I do this all the time when I don't have a pin vise handy.

As far as the models go, Ghazghkull is one of the newer ork models and one of the best sculpts in the GW range. I doubt that they'll replace him.

They might replace the meganobz with plastics in the second wave release, but I haven't heard any rumors about it.
