PostSubject: The Phantom Troupe - A hallucinogenic Harlequin themed Army   Fri Sep 18 2015, 15:38

Hey guys,

So I've officially started my second army; I actually started about 6 months ago, but I stopped and waited for the harle models to come out so i'd have more bits to play with. However I did do some work before then that I want to post up Smile

The overall theme is that the whole army is a large harlequin troupe that go into battle to play out the fate of the elder race both present, past and future. To this extent the harlequins will play the roles of the different units; IE They will stylize themselves as Dire avengers, fire dragons, reavers, incubi etc... (thus allowing me to field any eldar unit from the entire race with a harlequin twist).

The second theme to the army is that you are actually viewing them while intoxicated by the hallucinogens that the harlequins use on the battlefield, thus they have a demonic twist to the models with the inclusion of tomb kings heads, flaming weapons and ghostly spirits.

The paint scheme is a vibrant slaaneshi scheme; vibrant blues, purples, ghostly greens, pinks and blacks. The scheme is based upon the fact that the troupe is mocking slaanesh and they appear on the battlefields as demonic ghostly ninja's carving through their foes.

I have got a load of fluff for the army, but I will include that at a later date. For now I just wanted to post up some of the models I've worked on this far.

Models;

Whats on the dungeon slab today?

I apologise for the poor quality photo's, I am in a rush! I have a fresh batch of flesh ready for the carving!

Reasonably happy with these, first time i've really tried to sculpt full forms. I prefer the arms to the legs on all of them, found legs difficult.

I really enjoyed the fleshwork though, doing torso's and chest muscles was great fun.

Again apologises for the poor photos.

Wow. Very cool conversions. Wish I could do that. But my skills with green stuff isn't all that good. Owell.
