That metalwork is a thing of beauty. It suggests opulent yet decadent, touched by entropy. The almost-but-not-quite (honest!) Chaos symbols work very well with it too.

Is that a 'nid skull? Very Happy

Personally I'd dismember the slaves responsible for cleaning that Venom. Excellent work though!

Now that's a well-used Venom RGC, a true veteran of the kabal. Well done!

I love it, it feels a bit 'Chaos Eldar' but there's certainly nothing wrong with that, looking forward to more.

I agree with Sky Serpent, definitley feels chaosy. I would love to see your Dark Eldar allied with Black Legion Chaos. That'd be pretty awesome visually on the tabletop.

Overall I like you color scheme, modeling choices. Feels like very high gothtic 40k. Looking forward to seeing more.

Cavalier, you are probably right with the black legion.... I had to look up reference pics though... Would be an interesting battle as well.

First of the Seeker Jet Bikes. Sorry for the bad pictures, alas taking pictures is not my strong point.







These are pre-green stuff to show the steps, one the ones with Seeker Heads I cut a middle section out of the hoods, and trimmed back the bike body about an 1/8th on an inch to give a flush and relatively large area to glue the neck to. For the Tail I cut off the "handles" and shaved that area down mostly flat for the same reason, the legs were a bit easier I just removed the "jewel" and foot pegs to make space. When I green stuff these more pics will follow.

OH and o get these seeker parts, I took the seeker bod and cut away where the legs get mounted and the saddle.
Tips for doing this: Get a modeling saw. If you don't have one like me, I took my diagonal cutters, and cut the saddle and tail off with that. If you do this MAKE SURE YOU CUT SHORT OF WHERE YOU PLAN ON REMOVING. I can not stress this enough, your cutters are going to pinch the plastic, take your exacto knife and clean this off giving ou a flat surface to glue.

Seeker Jetbikes? You Sir, are a very strange man!

Excellent idea though and I can't wait to see the finished product.

I really like the Seeker bikes, very covenly and very well done!

I have a set of Seeker heads myself waiting to get cut up, if I can get it right, they will form a Hydra figurehead for the next addition to my fleet of Raider dragon boats.

How many are you going to do, and will they all be Seeker-based, or will you mix in other weird and wonderful creatures?

16 seekerbikes, and two warped in to another creature. the 16 the riders are getting blended into the bikes as well. The two warp beasts are for the arena champions.

The Youngest Leader of the Coterie.

The insiration for this was simple, I like Crushing claws/wrecking claws from my time playing nids. Slaanesh also has a lot of these type claws. In my fluff I had written the moment The Youngest starts worshiping She Who Thirst when he lost to an eldar leader, having his left hand cut off, a voice said for your worship of me I will give you the power to defeat your enemies. So I knew I was going to put a claw on his left arm. Him being the first worshiper in The Coterie he is going to have a little more mutation, but not ugly or random. So I found a CSM arm that with a little carving amd heat would make a good claw/venom blade. I took the possessed sword arm with the cross tip. I trimmed off the cross pieces, shaved down the thickness intentionally gouging out, to give it a rough carapace-ish look. But knowing the divots are going to be osl bright green (I use this to WYSIWYG poison.) I know I am going t do the rest of the claw metal so it is more blade. Next I look at the arm it's self WAY to thick for D.E. So I looked at the details I liked, which luck was mostly the under arm. So starting at the shoulder, I started removing plastic making the armor plates more angular like D.E. armor. I did this and thinned down in between that plates till it was closer to D.E. thickness, and I was happy with it. Next I compared it to the torso, it was to thick to place under the shoulder plate, so I cut that off flush. then went back and made sure my arm's shoulder plate matched up with the torso's, this took a little bit more trimming but not much. Next was selecting the head. Sense fluff wise The Youngest doesn't live in The Dark City anymore, and I don't like helmets. I decided to look at what daemonette heads I had laying about I wanted something commanding, large intimidating. This one came from the seeker box. The daemonettes were left over from the start of my seeker/jet bike conversions. I also liked the flag from the same box as it is larger the the D.E. flags. Early one in my planning stage of m army I decided that unit leader would be carrying flags that matched up with their venoms, to make it easy to see if a venom had troops mounted or not. The Larger flag also meant I could do the Coterie's emblem not just the Kabal's. My first thought was to have the flag in his right hang and a blaster slung across his back. So placing the flag on the model, I looked at it and realized that the cape almost looks like a wind is blowing from the model's back. The flag has a clear wind direction. So I switched up my plan (luckily for me and a recommendation for you don't cut any parts like the blaster off it's arm, till you are absolutely sure where they are going to go.) I took the daemonette arm that is meant to hold the flag, rounded the edges of the bicep, so it fit in the back trophy rack socket better. then had a fun time of trying to hold the model arm and flag to find the angles before I glued them. I kept this up till I found the angle you see now, (Which is just over 50 degrees from the models left dorsal surface) I say 50 degrees not because I got a protractor out or anything, but that is a rough eyeballing. Glued the arm to the back, then to the flag, this is because there was more flex in the wist joint/socket the the back/shoulder. Now putting the head on, I recommend you do this before the flag..... The daemonette heads do not have a ball nearly the same size as D.E. So a rolled up a tiny bit of green stuff, about half a pea size. dropped that in the neck socket and pressed in the head, quickly taking my head and pressing it in. Making sure to get it at angle that the head was resting on plastic so the angle wouldn't change, then grabbing my tool, and pressing on an of the green stuff bulges, switch the wasn't much of.
Front.


Back.
