Nice! I think the claw is a bit oversized and not too practical but it looks imposing and deadly so that's cool.

The head is very cool, I dig it!

Thanks evil Smile 4 more being made at the mo.

Eye. Yes I have been umming and Arring about the arm since I put it together. It does look cool but proportions are not right, no matter how cool. Thinking of possibilities for changing it but unfortunately my bits box is empty of talos parts to replace it with something smaller. Will post a quick pic once I have decided

Changed the mechanical arm on my haemonculus for a deadly potion. Much happier with the result. Makes the figure much more balanced

That haemonculus is seriously awesome. Really, everything here is. I can't wait to see when this stuff becomes painted.

Hey thanks very much. I am looking forward to painting them too. My airbrush paints finally arrived yesterday so when I have time I will be laying down some base colours for the wych squad and then layer up with brushwork.

Just finished my warrior squad as well. Used wych bodies as the base as I like the sense of movement in them and they are fun to convert. Tihs project is the most fun I have had converting up stuff for a long time. I hope it shows Smile enjoy

Hi folks.painting my wych squad at the moment so hopefully have a painted update to show you soon. In the meantime here is my archon I have converted. Used a high elf Mage for the body. Had to saw, drill and hack the skirt out to fit the wych legs in. Was a royal pain in the bum but worth it i think.

La classe !
those empire bitz are well used

I realy like yours two haemonculus very creepy !
cant wait to see them painted :p

PS:not sure if "danse de morte" is supposed to be a french sentence, but if it is :p the correct sentense would be "Danse de mort" but this sound wrong in french -> "danse des morts", "la danse morbide" or "la morbide danse" sound better and older or ofc "la danse macabre" witch is the medieval art form

Merci Sangarn!

It was supposed to be french but obviously failed. Damn you google translate Wink. I like La Danse Macabre. Sounds more fitting. Painting updates soon!

Hi evil denizens! A Painting update below Smile. These took me a very loong time to paint but I am pleased with the result and colour scheme. I used the red as a base colour to try and tie the whole squad together and I think overall it has been successful. Let me know what you think.

Awesome models! I love the riotous colors. Idea on the solitaire would be to use Lilith's rules.

@power hungry monkey - Thank you so much. Really appreciate your comment Smile I was not sure how all the colour's would fit together when I started out painting but fortunately I managed to pull it off without it looking discordant.

@infamousme - Yes, using Lelith's rules for the solitaire would be a great idea to bring the model onto the tabletop. I just have to think of a conversion idea to do it justice. Thanks for your positive comment. It is great to hear people like my stuff Smile

More painting updates soon!

I love seeing well-executed concepts like this. Hopefully I can come up with something cool at some point.

@Bearded Dan - thanks Smile. It took me a few projects to be able to work up to something like this. I find that if you have an idea just go for it. If it doesn't work then put it all back into your bits box for a later project, and if it does then the sense of satisfaction is great. Start small and build up. I am still in the infancy stages of green stuffing at the moment so am only attempting to sculpt small bits like hair ect but I hope with practise I may soon be able to push up my game a bit. I have made some atrocious mistakes and ripped off a fair few yards of green stuff from my models just to get to the stage I am.

Phew! Just finished this gal. The hag queen of hearts. Counts as my succubus. Painted her as a treat for completing my first 5 man squad. She was alot of fun to do but quite fiddly. Enjoy!

You know I'm more a fan of harlequins with lots of diamond and damboard patterns, but still, these are also great, lots of colors, clean painting jobs. They certainly do have the harlequin feeling.

@khain mor- thanks. I know what you mean about the damboard and diamond patterns. I wanted to try and get them into this army but realistically I know I would never be able to finish a unit if every surface had to be painted a pattern, So I made a consious decision to build up more bold colours with the patterns as accents to the model rather than covering them. I am glad you think i managed to pull it off even without as many complicated designs. I am happy with the overall result and maybe as my skill level increases i will be able to get a few more patterns onto the models Smile

Just a quick update. Painting progress is a little slow so I thought I would post these up. Knocked them up when I had a spare few minutes at work. My harlequin pain tokens. Let me know what you think.

Cool tokens and the Hag is amazing. Great use of the Banshee model. I've been looking for a way to use her myself.

This log just gets better and better. I can't wait to see more painted stuff

Thanks power hungry monkey. The banshee model is one of my favourite new plastic models that gw has bought out. The detail and dynamics on it are amazing and beg to be painted/ converted. Glad you like it Smile

Hey folks. I am struggling to complete this final batch of wyches. Time constraints mean that progress is incredibly slow. Also batch painting does not really work as each figure is painted slightly differently. I managed to paint up till about half way as a batch (of 4) then had to go onto individual model painting. Below is the first completed out of my second batch. I will display single figures as i complete them for a bit and do a squad photo when all is finished, otherwise it might be another week before i can get anything posted up. Keeps me motivated this way as well Smile

Thanks Herbert. I had alot of fun doing all the conversions. It takes longer to paint them than it does to convert but still takes a while. I prefer the converting part the best but having a unit painted ready for the battlefield is also a satisfying experience.
