Default Using Necrons in fantasy

Hi all,
I love the new necron wraith models and was trying to think of a way I could use them. Since I don't have necron army do you think I could use them as rat ogres in my clan skyre. Any thoughts about that? Too much of a reach?


credit goes to wolf.

I only really concern myself with three things when borrowing a model to be something else:
(1) Is it mountable on the correct size base?
(2) Is the visual profile approximately equal?
(3) Does the idea make me happy?

So I say Wraiths as Rat Ogres (and probably many other monstrous infantry units) is fine.

You may want to add some more "fleshy" bits to the wraiths, like making their "tails" look like rat tails, and maybe swapping out a wraith head or two for a rat ogre head...
