PostSubject: Converting reavers into warlocks on jetbike   Tue Feb 28 2017, 23:00

True kin. I have a confession. I enjoy the psychic phase and have wanted for sometime now to build a jetseer council. When the Gangs of Commorragh box dropped I first wanted to convert the hellions into a seer council but, after much thought they just don't have the dimensions for it.

Now I'm looking at the six reavers. I have heard that the wild riders box from AoS can be used for witchblades and helms. I'm not a big fan of their torsos. Looking at the sprues on GW's site the helms from the wild riders won't connect to the reaver torso without green stuff. I would like to keep this project simple.

My question is what other kits should I look at for this kit bash or should I just try to work with the WR? I could get over the torso if it makes the project simple.

My fluff for this project is a group of latently psychic reavers left Commorragh during the disjunction brought about by Yvraine's resurrection and now have taken up the mantle of warlocks for the new Ynnari faction. I'm open to suggestions for other kits or fluff reasons for the WR aesthetic.

I would just make a bunch of arena champion style reavers. Add symbols to the bikes to make them look more like seer bikes.

Use wych heads or kabalite faces? and then an assortment of pikes from different veichles? Really depends on your bitz box. But I think as long as you paint them obviously people will know they are seers and not reavers so you dont need to do any crazy conversion, just some light kit bashing

Could you use hellion glaives somehow seeing as you are buying them anyway?

I really don't want to use anything DE aside from the bikes themselves or the legs. I've got shuriken weapons for the underside.

Guardian Torsos are easy, if you want to add some bulk you could grab plate torsos from Cold one Knights (drakespawn knights now), or Dragon Princes (Dragon Blades now). If you want to match the Visarch's look I recommend Phoenix guard as they have a striking resemblance to the Visarch's armor (even got a little soulstone on the belt)

Wild Riders won't be an easy fit--their heads and arms won't join easily to a Reaver torso.

I've got both a Seer Council converted out of Reavers and a Seer Council made from Wild Riders, (a Deer Council?) so I'm happy to help with any experience that might be beneficial. Smile

Jimsolo's right about the Wild Rider heads. However, if you clip the neck of Scourge heads and cut the end into a bot of a wedge that glues quite nicely into the base of the Wild Rider head and puts it at about the right height Smile

Used it for these dudes:

For a more sci fi look, the Wild Rider masks should slot right onto a Harlequin head with little difficulty.

Haha! Can't believe I didn't think of that...

All this butchering of Scourge heads could have been avoided...

Ynneadwraith those minis look spectacular.

I've only built one of the council and have no pictures. I'll likely end up using a harlequins torso to make the 6th passenger. I'm using a mix of the sisters of the thorn torsos and helms of the wild riders as well as the legs from the AoS kit. Only having one built I'm pleased with the result.

Expounding on fluff reasons; If it's an Eldar renaissance then why not include scale mail in the future..

Thanks dude Smile I've got loads more in my plog if you want some inspiration Wink

They sound pretty good so far Smile I'd love to see a pic of what you've come up with Smile

Apologies on the lighting and the time it took to post these. I got the bits in to make a couple more the other day and will be working on a few more to flesh out the squad. I used the helms from the wild riders and the torsos from the sisters of the thorn.
