I just picked up these to use as wracks in a wych coven/wannabe flesh carnival army.

What do you guys think?

I've had the idea of using some Cryx models in my DE army for some time, though I was looking into the Drudge Mind slaves that came with Cephalyx. The idea there being, the mind slaves were the wracks, while Cephalyx made for a very good looking haemonculus.

I must say though, they look quite good for role and aren't that big of a stretch models wise (modified bodies from DE point of view). I think it'll work quite nicely. Looking forward to see how it looks together with the rest of the army.

It may be quite some time before I start getting anything painted. The people in my gaming group make it a point to laugh at me for how long I drag my feet on painting my models.

If I do actually get anything done, I'll be happy to post some pics Smile

You might want to take a look at the Blighted Nyss from the Hordes range as well. They have proportions that are closer to Dark Eldar, and the blight makes them look particularly nasty as well.

Not quite as steampunky as the Drudges, but that's where the green stuff comes in Wink

Yeah, I had my eyes on some of the models from Hordes to convert into grots. I was going to use the lower half of the legion of everblight warspears with the upper torso of chaos spawn, unfortunately the warpears were significantly smaller than I thought.

I still have yet to find a suitable lower body for my mad creations. I've seen quite a few conversions online that other people have done but none of them quite fit my image.

Are these conversions for wracks or grots?

I already have my wracks taken care of, but thanks. I need conversions for grots.

Both have been used, you can plenty of examples in the Aphotic Gallery and other sections of the Haemie Workshop.

I used both, using the rat ogre arms, the rat ogre kit even comes with a thing to use as a liquefier gun (convenient)

I love those minis, I'm going to use them as Wyches. I think the GW Wych models are a bit plain and I'm going for a more piratey theme.

I already have her. ^_~

I just can't quite decide what to use her as. She could be a Hecatrix, a Succubus, or even a Haemonculous. Though the Blood Wyches come with a squad leader for a Hecatrix and I can't really find a place for a Succubus in my list, so it's leaning towards Haemonculous. That way I can have two other Haemonculi and increase the number of IC's and spread some more pain around. My other Haemonculi look more like the GW one, though I converted them from some of my old Dirz minis from Confrontation. http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=317650

I've been toying around with notions of having my DE Corsairs be literally Vampiric, thus staving off Slaanesh through drinking blood without being connected to Commoragh. So my combat drug rules, PFP, and Haemonculous rules would represent Vampiric powers. I just feel like drinking the blood of your foes is classier than feeding off of the torment of slaves. I'm still fleshing out the background, but I figure the Vampirism was created for us by a rouge Coven in exchange for some bizarre artifacts.

I think she would make a fine Haemonculus. It would be a shame to use that model to represent a Hecatrix. The horns definitely indicate some sort of flesh craft, which is why I use the other models as wracks.

I like your idea of having the combat drugs and PFP representing Vampirism and your project log link is amazing! Very nice looking models and conversions you have there. Great free hand on the sail.

Thanks!

I'm kind of kicking myself about the sail, as I can't figure out how to fit the image onto other sail shapes yet. I'm going have to rework it for each sail I suppose.

I've been painting the horns Tin Bits to make them look like metal ornamentation, but I could see them as wracks, especially if you have Skarre as your Haemonculous.
