I have 40-50 odd wyches laying around that will most likely never get used in this edition so I'm thinking of converting them into harlequins! My current idea is storm guardian conversion kits for the arms and sisters of slaughter/witch elf heads combined with greenstuff and cutting off the spiky bits.
Anyone else have any suggestions for converting our miniature dust collectors into murder clowns?

Paging @spellcheck2001. @spellcheck2001 to modelling thread, please.

In the meantime, I highly suggest checking out their plog for ideas.

SC present and correct good sirs! jocolor

Go for it bipity. All my infantry stuff is converted out of the wych bodies. Have a look at the empire wizard kit as it has some great parts you can splice in to change the appearance of your wyches. Also fluffly shoulders from the greatsword kits are pretty useful. For face masks the blood angel sanguinary guard kit is great for them (you can also press mould them as this makes it a little easier fir mould tound the face. TBH any funky looking things you can find can be added to make your wyches more interesting and harlie like (head swaps ect). The grey knight infantry kit has some very cool trinkets on it. Just go for it and have fun. You will find that by having a laugh making them the harlie spirit will come out in your conversions easily Smile

You could also buy a new plastic harlie kit and mix all the parts together with your wyches, as GW tends to provide quite alot of wxtra parts in their new plastic kits. Hope some of that helps Smile

Awesome!! Ty for the ideas!! I never thought of BA guard masks so I bought some sisters of slaughter heads and was planning on press molding them into masks! I like your idea better! I was thinking that hydra gauntlets would make great caresses but I'm still pondering the kisses.. maybe splinter rifles with some knife work attached to a forearm?

I too am planning on running my Wyches as Harlequins, but my models are Raging Heroes' Blood Vestals, so will be painting them as Harley Quinns.

One of my Necrons is holding a rubber chicken: so easy to make out of a bit of greenstuff, yellow paint and a red beak!

I have a few of those as well! I've used the leader to make an autarch to run with my incubi! The masks they come with make excellent banshee masks! That rubber chicken is awesome!! Smile

From looking at the sprews it looks like arms and heads would work well. Harley legs look to be convex and the torsos are concave, opposite of the DE kits. Knife work will be needed me thinks if you want to mix torsos and legs!

I'm not so crazy about the clowns, so I'd actually rather convert Harleys to look more like Wyches. Razz
