Hi all, I want to create some assassin teams to use as mandrakes, will need 15 in total. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to do this? I thought about using glade guard with wildrider torsos but the GG sculpts are pretty ancient

Another thought was to use the naggaroth nightmares with different heads and wych weapons but they might look too heavily armoured?

Last thought is to use harlequins and replace the pistol arms with wych ones. Don't know if players would be ok with that though

Common options for mandrakes:

Indoneth Deepkin - they are a little fancy/uparmored for mandrakes, but look reasonably sinister.
Wood Elf Tree Revenants/wraiths - they are a little big, but turn up the *not normal* aspect of mandrakes to 11.

Another: daughters of khaine. The basic unit ones. No reason all your mandrakes can’t be half-naked chicks with knives.

I've seen these mentioned, great ideas but not quite the aesthetic I'm thinking of, I'm thinking more drukhari assassins/ninjas if you get what I mean

what about combining the Bladegheist Revenants with Dark Eldar legs/torsos?

It would involve a bit of modelling, but could be pretty sick if pulled off right.

All great actually, I think I'll try the revenants, I was going to use them as they are before but will get some and see if adding legs is an option

Those crows look nice too though, but want to have games in-store when I visit Europe next and they get a bit funny about non-GW models
