Because there\'s so many of them, I wouldn\'t do anything too fancy. Personally, i would just use a mix of mutation sprues, catachan and cadian sprues, metal bitz, and marauder sprues. or maybe Ork sprues for comedic effect! Just do weird things like make heads bodies, and put legs on the shoulders etc.

I made mine from...wait for it

Ork boyz
Other chaosy mutant looking bitz from bits box

put them in a box
pull the parts out at random and stick them together
Creates a nice mix of troops

lol yeah, do a pick and mix style thing. Put \'em all in a big top hat and play bingo with \'em!!!

Yeh something like that

Of course you do have to make special ones such as the superman mutant on flying stand and the hug-in-a-mug off the soup adverts.
That one always goes down well
And if you can get your hands on catachan heavy weapons teams make sure you make the man eating plant mutants

If you want your mutants to look really funny attach an Imperial Guard head to an orks neck.

Tyranid bits look good. I use the front half of a ripper and stick it on the guy\'s neck sometimes and it looks like the ripper\'s coming out of their head! :)

Cool, i\'ve gone for this approach with kroot parts and whatever else i can fine within my bits box
*waits for the inevitble marine arm and a bolterfaced mutant*

Theres nothing wrong with bolter faced mutants.
Ive got 1 with 2 shootas for its torso and no head

LOL, lucky dip muties. What a great way to use up your bits and pieces!

Definately do it for comedy value, if not for anything else!
