What would be a good preferably plastic model for a ghoul hero? Or what could I greenstuff on to a ghoul body to make him heroic ?

The new Crypt Ghouls are pretty bad ass to begin with. You could try a hand swap if he got Weapon Expert to have access to weapons.

Fur on the shoulders is a pretty standard symbol for heroes, either as a cloak or just something gross. A crown of bones or some other bones stuff? Green stuff him to look bigger, or just have a more awesome pose than the rest? Maybe have him the only "upright" ghoul of the bunch.

The Crypt Ghouls are one of GW's more impressive new releases...nice starting point for some kit bashing/converting. For a Ghoul hero some bits of armor & more muscular arms might suggest his/its new status; the Catachan or Orc arms might work. The fur cape sounds good too. Alternatively you could use a Strigoi Vampire mini for an Uberpowerful Ghoul...they ARE, afterall, called "Ghoul Kings". affraid

Not plastic, but what about Heresy's 'who ate all the pies?' ghoul? Looks like the lad's got talent to me. For eating and beating enemies to death, if nothing else.

Yeah, it's a gorgeous kit.

You could mount on a more spectacular base, arm him with a larger bone, give him some decoration. Fur is a great idea--and taking that idea further, flayed skin would be cool too (a face peeled off a corpse and worn as a mask would be fun).

Think about things that a ghoul might like to show his superiority to other ghouls, what are good ghoul trophies?

If you want some kit bashing you could steal some bits from the deamon sprues to make the hero taller and such. Even old zombie arms will be bigger/beafier than the new ghoul sprue's.

For a cloak you could also steal an idea from the Beasts and re-create Morghur's Skull Weave in plastic...

Remember that's a house rule. As established here and in other places ghouls can use no equipment of any kind. Weapon's expert does not grant a ghoul the ability to take equipment. Though I know several groups do allow this.

These are all great ideas, but don't forget that the Crypt Ghoul box comes with a rank leader model. It is bigger and more muscular than the others.

note the dark guy in the middle

Actually that sounds like it could make for a great vampire with some other tweaks.

Those look great! I was going to just use the rank and file leader as my ghoul hero but now you got me reconsidering.
