Either models, basis for conversions? Not having much luck on Google?

I use these. They're not perfect scale, slightly bigger than most Drukhari infantery but at least they fit on a 25mm.

Try these. GW quality, but cheap by their standards, all you really have to do with them is clip/file off the leaves and put them on 25mm bases

I just used wyches, and added black cotton shadow-mist, two melee weapons and some skulls/green stuff for baleblasts. Not entirely happy with them though. Might try rebasing them so they are emerging from a shadowed crevice or beneath something

In terms of conversions, I came across these a while back:

I grabbed anything I could find which resembled a Ringwraith.
Came out with thirty of the things from various sources (GW, Reaper, etc).

Do you have photos of those models? I'm interested to see what the Reaper ones are?

Google Mr. Pink's custom mandrakes, he uses GS and Kronos parts, really cool for a Coven-themed army.

Pelgrane Press's Legions of Everblight army has some cool stuff--check out their Spawning Pit unit, Blighted Nyss Hexhunters, and Strider Blightblades.

I'm considering modding some AOS ghouls--swap in some Drukhari or Dark Elves unhelmeted heads / hands / melee weapons, add GS clothing as desired, remove the bones / fur as desired.

@SleepyPillow those Gaki are awesome! They really nail the "boogeyman" vibe.

These were actually a bit of a pain to find, so I thought I'd actually link the relevant articles:
