The plastic troops, specifically Clan Mors; are they human-sized or smaller?

I ask because I want to use skaven bodies to make hybrids for my 40k genestealer cult, but upon looking through this month's White Dwarf they look a little smaller than I first thought.

I'm not exactly sure what you're alluding to as there are as far as I know no official 'Clan Mors' models, but yeah, Skaven are hunched over and thus notably smaller than your average human...

However the Stormvermin are pretty buff.

Here ya go, made a pic for you... though the problem is that I don't have many human minis to compare.

Clan Pestilens Plague Monks are a much better bet as a base for hybrids than Clanrats, I should think.

Thanks. They do look a little smaller than I'd have liked.

Yeah I considered mixing in some plague monk bodies, but I particularly like the mix of ragged robes with bits of armour (especially the back plates) on these bodies:

On a related note, has anyone picked up the new Ikit Claw? Is his head a separate component from his body?

Either way, he's going to be turned into a hybrid special character, but not having to gouge his head out of the recesses of his armour will make the job so much easier.

Yes his head is seperate from the rest of the body.
