I am pleased with the proportions here, and am shamelessly putting them up for commission painting, as my painting is awful!
Raging Heroes Blood Vestal models, the Sci-Fi troops version, with wings from Maxmini.

For three of them I had to chop the wings into two, thread them through the girl's ponytail, and re-glue before mounting; very fiddly!
The fourth needed her hair to be cut and filed off her back, as there was no separate ponytail.

Hope you like where I've got to so far, and I will post further pics when I get them painted!

Colour scheme will be bright red leotards, boots and gloves (no boobs out, it's crass and daft!); silver armour plates, and I've yet to decide on wing schemes; My army is not Dark Kin, it's human pirate, so I haven't decided whether these characters are genetically modified, have wing grafts, or are wearing strap-on wing sets.

I want them to be really bright, I'm not a fan of muted colours and grimdark on the table, largely because of my old tired eyes!

Very cool - I love the Blood Vestals but haven't figured out what to do with mine now that 'more Wyches' is kind of an empty feeling in my soul Very Happy

These do look ace though.

They look pretty good!

I've never been able to get over the Blood Vestals' impractical footwear. I don't mind the boobs, but I object to the high heels. Maybe it matters less if they're flying.

Are you going to do anything to give them more Scourge-like weapons?

TBH, all my opponents are so used to my all-proxy armies that as long as the models are identifiable, no-one minds that the Devourers on my Clanrat Termagants are spears, that my Gargoyles are actually rats on flying carpets, or that my Scourges' Haywire blasters are obviously pistols!

I don't cleave to GW's designs for guns, so all of my wargear is clearly listed on my army roster, for my opponent's benefit.

what are you all saying, fighting in 6" stiletto thigh high boots is impractical?

I DON'T BELIEVE IT!
