------

I decided to write up some archetypes and wargear for the Ogryns and Ratlings official species options. I know that you could squeeze them into another archetype like Ganger with a little house-ruling but I wanted to go all the way instead.

Let me know what you think, if you like them then please feel free to play them and let me know how they go.

EDITS
2018-09-17 - Removed "Avalanche of Muscle" from the Bullgryn archetype and added "Shieldwall Indoctrination".
2018-09-18 - Increased Grenadier Gauntlet range from 20m to 30m and specified the type of clothes Ratlings receive.

Ahh, I hadn't read the comments there so far.

Still, mid-2019 is a fair way off and I'm keen now. :)

Nah, by the looks of it, pre order and you get the stats for them in digital
Anyways, I'm going to add a few things of my own here

Weapon Specialist Homebrew
► Show Spoiler


Weapon Specialist Homebrew based on the Only War Class. Design Decisions was to focus on keeping the Weapon of Choice Relevant for the character’s career at any tier.

Edited it to be less Crunchy but still effective. Wishing I could Collapse the posts. Found it

Need to stop doing this while sleepy. Meant to only post this and the Sniper and Scout classes, but i didn't stop. Will do something about that and throw in a Base Ogryn Archetype

Scout
► Show Spoiler


This Class is Based on the Scout as well as the Ratling from the Hammer of the Emperor and the Only War Core Rule book. It can probably fit the Specialist Trailblazer from the Shield of Humanity as well.

BP Cost 25+
Bulwark

► Show Spoiler


An Ogryn, whose simplicity bore a natural talent to smashing things really, really hard, has been set aside to be trained differently than other Ogryns. It is based on the Bulwark Class in Shield of Humanity.

Natural Focus is to Grab a big Unwieldy Weapon with huge Base stats and then get just enough Weapons Skill to Hit’em; Going for a Greater focus in Strength Vs. Initiative.

Dashes in BP is my uncertainty on the Balancing Point of the Archetype. Its definitely less then a Sister, but probably more then a Stormtrooper.
