That's been my plan for awhile. To use Orlocks and turn them into former miner turned guardsman veterans, Van Saar (and the new enforcers!) into either Inquisitorial Acolytes, or carapace armored veterans.

Anything can be an acolyte with a little work! I did in fact preorder the Enforcers box (Coming this Saturday), and plan to make it so I can use them as an enforcer gang when playing Necromunda, or as acolytes in a main game. They'll look sweet painted like squat and bodyguarding Eisenhorn up the board.

Nice!! I really like the figures. Unfortunately they did not go with anything I am currently working on. I was thinking I wanted to eventually get an inquisitor going and they will make great body guards.

Right now I ordered the Marine collection of Shadow wars box set and looking forward to paint those guys up

so I found great deals off of eBay for Black stone fortress beastmen, plus what I found in the Steveb stuff I should end up with at least a platoon, they will go grate with the Merc. outfit. Just wish I had rules for them.

Pics or it didn't happen.

Btw, Victoria miniatures released Matilda and cruiser-inspired sci-fi tanks, since you're interested in a WW2 North Africa Brit theme: https://victoriaminiatures.com/collections/vehicles-and-bits-1

Edit: And if you want a lawrence of arabia look, Reptilian Overlords makes the right bits (note that their site is dogshit): https://www.reptilian-overlords.com/online-store/Desert-Reaver-Torsos-x6-p138430387
I agree with the inhumane treatment of animals.
