PostSubject: The Grand Unification   Wed Dec 17 2014, 06:01

My army consists primarily of Dark Eldar (mostly Covens), but I like to have a story to support my dudes, (to forge a narrative, to coin a phrase) and have them all fit together.

To that end, I wanted my Exodites to fit in with my Freakshow list, since that's going to be my default list in this edition I think. So I wanted Exodites that used fear as their preferred weapon. So I was really excited when Secret Weapon Miniatures put out the Field of Screams bases.

Here are my first two 'jetbike' Farseers on the new bases.

The models work really well for Exodite farseers, but the bases have absolutely put the cherry on top. Hallowe'en theme across whole army pls.

Putting a Corpsethief claw together now. I'm using old metal Wraithlords, and I'm going to convert them to look all Dark Eldar-y. I'm going to base their looks on Cenobites Pinhead, Fan Dancer, Little Sister, and Halo.

Hell yeah sounds awesome. I know those models are "dated" but I still like em. If can try and find the old metal Zoanthrope head from 3rd ed. It fits perfectly on to the Wraithlord, has horns, segmented plates etc....

Looks promising. I'm also a fan of the Eldar unification theme, but not sure I'll ever get round to doing anything about it.

Finished my latest Talos/Cronos conversion.




In case the pics aren't clear, I pinned a Dark Eldar trophy rack to the back of the head, ran a row of spikes from the Raider kit down the midline of his noodle, and wrapped barbed wire around his wraithvanes. For weapons loadout, his right hand has a hypodermic needle that can serve as either a spirit probe or an ichor injector, depending on what I want to field him as. The left hand, raised as though shielding his eyes, has a magnetized port that can be left blank when he's a Cronos, or given a heat lance, splinter cannon, or haywire blaster if I should want him to be a Talos.

Here's my newest Wraithlord-turned-Talos, based on the Little Sister cenobite from Hellraiser. Right arm is the Ichor Injector/Spirit Probe made from a hypodermic needle, and left arm is magnetized for to take a weapon if I want her to be a Talos (or stay bare if I want her to be a Cronos). Added some Chaos trophy spikes to her back. The face was done with guitar wire, although I had to build her 'jaw' and the top of her 'skull' out with GS in order to conceal where the wire came through. Added some knee and knuckle spikes to make her extra Dark Eldar-y.

Got the last two Cenobite-Wraithlords modeled. (Painting is another story!)




Halo (left) has homemade barbed wire around his upper legs, and skull-laden trophy spikes on his shoulder and kneepads. The head spike halo came from the spikes in a Raider kit. The corpse strapped to his wraithvanes is a Warmachine bit. I think his 'attitude hand' came out particularly well.

Fan Dancer (right) is a little unfinished, since she has a skirt, hair, and feathered fans that will be added once she's painted. Still, she sports an athletic, sexy-leg pose that was a bear-and-a-half to do (I had to cut her in half at the waist--her midsection cabling has been replaced by a bendy stray segment) and her wraithvanes have been replaced midway up with Dark Eldar trophy poles.

Both of them are rocking the ichor injectors (Halo's is made from a hypodermic needle, Fan Dancer's from a drilled out Dark Eldar polearm shaft.) on one wrist, and a magnetized port on the opposite wrist, allowing them to play double duty as either a Talos or a Cronos.

This brings my total of Taloi/Cronoi up to ten, meaning I can now field up to FIVE Dark Artisans, or two full Corpsethief Claws!

Not sure if anyone even reads this, so this may be a waste of time.

I was recently told my third party grotesques wouldn't be acceptable for competitive use, so to comply with my local TO's requirements, I got ahold of some legitimate GW models to convert into grots, as well as some old school 3rd edition grots.

Spoiler:
 

I've included some closeups of the conversions to the rat ogres' tails.

I do Smile

I like the rat ogres as grots. They are about the right size, and with the added masks look like muscled beasts. Those tail conversions are a nice touch. Maybe the addition of a few vials ect from the talos kit owuld make them even more DE like?

I like to check in on it as well. I find many of your ideas interesting and creative. I look forward to seeing what you do next.

Looking good Jimsolo. Bummer about your Cenobite-Wraithlords... thats really lame. Were they banned in a tourney or just in your pickup scene. Because if they were banned at your pickup scene that really sucks.

They're fine. It's my wulfen-grotesques I was told were no good (thankfully just for tourney play!).
