em4 are selling these (http://www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/Beastmen.html) sci-fi gun wielding Beastmen. The guns aren't particularly 40k-ish, but they might fit in nicely as a CSM, Daemons or IG auxilliary unit.

Thanks but no thanks one thing i'm always greatful for is the fact that the IG lost Beastmen type units

While i do have a 1500pt Khorne traitor guard made up of just beastmen and Children of chaos, I dont think these will fit in.
But thanks.

Perfectly good for traitors although I have seen fanastic things done with the cadian and beastmen sprues already.

Cool idea, I remember the IG Abhumans of yore. But these models don't look too modern.

I like these dues a lot. They may just be what I need to add traitor guard to my LatD mutants and plague zombies.

Size wise they match pretty well with IG and Fantasy beastmen. The sculpts are fairly old from the metal magic range going back to the late 90s iirc but still acceptable particularly at 1.25 each. The guns are fairly good lasgun/autorifle proxies.

Delivery from em4 when I ordered them was next day. I'd recommend them.

wow, these are really old models. I actually have some of these, and some of the other bits from the Spacelords range, including some of the Yoyodyne and cybertech models which I used to use as guardsmen back in the day... I've also got a couple of Yoyodyne skiff type things somewhere which I used as guard landspeeders, back when they had them...

Yeah, these have been around since the mid-90's if I'm remembering right. I've got a bunch of the Cybertech - they make great proxies for Stormtroopers, Enforcers, Arbites, etc. in Dark Heresy.

Not too fond of these models. Look like old school GW stuff and that isn't a compliment. I'd rather just kitbash some beatmen and cadians/catachan than buy those.

Considering that the Imperium is pretty adamant at wiping out abhumans that are too abnormal... beastmen that are so obviously non-human would be round up and shot (or ... just shot on the spot).

Lol. They really look like GW minis 20 years ago :) i kinda like this oldschool feel.
