Hologram entities likely don't look like themselves anymore. They become irregular over time as their shape software becomes more and more buggy.
One critter has 6 brain spines that stick out of its head. Each can be removed and stabbed into another creature, overwriting some of its personality and making it well disposed to the mutant. These spines are one use and do not regrow, so the mutant has at most 6 mind controlled slaves during its life.
Horror art has plenty of nonsensical creatures (like those without mouths or spikes for feet), but they could still have a place in GW as one use vatborn. Once they are awakened and freed from their vat, the creature has 2-8 days to perform its function and then die from starvation or organ failure.
