Here's my final two squads of Corsair Reavers to finish off my 1850 points of Corsair/DE/CE list. They are converted from warriors, wyches, wood elves wild riders and dark elves corsairs. The flamers are from the fire dragons exarch.

The reaver bands are trophy hunters, one specializing in vermin extermination with flamers. The others are big game hunters, going after hard targets with blasters.

These are really great conversions! Where did the capes come from? Also, where did you get both right-handed and left-handed pistols?

FYI, I'm pretty sure the fire dragon exarch's gun that you used is actually a fusion gun, rather than a flamer.

It's the dragon breaths flamer for the fire dragon exarch. They are quite similar, but the fusion guns don't have the lip at the front, and the fuel canisters are parallel to the weapon.

The capes and left arms are from the Dark Elves Black Ark Corsairs kit. The kit has 6 hand-crossbows, which I cut off and replaced with splinter pistols from the wych kit. There's a chain mail sleeve which looks kind of off, but It's not too bad.

Really cool conversions. Packed full of character, as befitting corsairs. I look forward to seeing more of this army Smile

Nice the Wild rider heads look smashing on corsairs

Probably did weapon swaps on existing arms, I did the same a while back on my exodite corsairs (mostly wych knives).  I have to admit that the dark eldar bodies with elf heads look a lot less static than mine which are the other way around.



Even better if you can find/afford them though - the harlequins' shuriken pistols are left handed.



Apologies for recycling old, crappy pictures... too lazy to take new ones and haven't finished painting them anyway (at this rate I may never).

This army must be such fun to convert cheers

Have you decided on a colour scheme yet?

No, I really like these conversions too. I'd probably do a mixed bag between the two. Maybe use 1 style for standard corsairs and the other style for the felarch and balestrike bands.

Ultimately, I just wish dissonance pistols worked on vehicles so I'd have a reason to make my corsair army.

Well those look fantastic Smile i'm definitely stealing a fair amount of that for my exodite counts-as kabalites.
I've already done a set using harlequin bodies, shadow warrior legs and guardian heads but they look too 'feudal eldar' rather than the 'eldar techno-savages' that i wanted...

I am also going to shamelessly steal most of this. I assume you used Wych legs in the second picture (of the first post)?

I really hate how the Dark Elf Corsair kit has the cape blowing in one direction, and the legs running in an opposite direction. Makes it look like they are both running forward and backward simultaneously :\
