Ogre kingdoms gorgers as bloodcrushers for a daemon army.

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat1300314&prodId=prod1040010&rootCatGameStyle=wh

thats them. i really like the bloodcrusher models and would happily use them, but i am aiming to have different models to everyone else these days, and i think they suit the bill.

rules-wise i dont see a problem either, bloodcrushers dont move as cavalry so the gorgers are plenty "slow enough". power-weapons, can you see the size of those claws, quite substantial, iron hide, well it's just tough skin.

your opinions.

I would not have a problem with that, as long as you told me before hand.

I can defiantly see people have having problems with this though.

Put them on 60mm round bases (or 50mm square if yuo're planning on doubling up for WHFB) and you're golden. :)

Just make sure all of the BC in your army are this. Don't mix and match.

I wouldn't object if you Khornified them a bit.

Good idea!

I have no problem with anyone making "counts as" models for Bloodcrushers merely because of the exorbinant price GW charges for them. $25 for a single Bloodcrusher?!?! I dont run any of them for exactly this reason. No matter how good they are or how cool the models are, I will not pay that ridiculous price.

I saw someone used the new WFB Plastic Chaos Knights to represent them... cost effective and I guess decent in a friendly environment...but the bases were 60mm cardboard........

My 7 Cents.

Nice idea, I use Raveners in my Slaaneshi forces, to pull daemonic chariots and sometimes as Seekers or Fiends (I do clorify before the games as to what they are). I always like to see some imagination out there, mixing things up with models that work and were not originally intended for what you use them for.

But as far as the models go, they always seem a bit more Nurgle to me than Khorne.

@ DR.mercury, im intrigued as to how they are nurgle. state your reasoning!

and @ lonelypath, that sounds funky. For fiends i have conbsidered beastmen centigors, As with the right scheme they could look very slaaneshii i think.

They look diseased IMO
Plus the one with the bandage over his eyes seems blinded.
I don't know, I think they would look wicked cool with a rotten slimy green paintjob!
