The core body was a Dark Eldar Archon Finecast figure with some details shaved off or modified. The shoulder pads, fur pelt, knee pads and hair were sculpted from greenstuff as well as the Obsidian Orb which replaced the flaming pyramid in the right hand of the Finecast figure. The head is a High Elf Dragon Prince Helmet with the front detail shaved and sculpted to match a Dark Eldar Aesthetic and the back banner is from a Dark Elf Corsair banner. Several small gemstones were shaved off assorted High Elf bits and added all over Vect, including on the gloves, front helmet and shoulder pads.

The staff arm started off as a Dark Eldar pike arm rom the Raider crew, but the glove was sculpted to match the Archon glove on the right hand. The staff itself is comprised bits of several High Elf Mage staff pieces as well as some Dark Eldar vehicle blades.

The base is mostly sculpted from greenstuff with the exception of the face itself which is from a Scibor basing kit and the side of the helmet fin which was a rudder from a Dark Eldar Raider.

I plan to give him this Court of the Archon when finished: HERE

Very VERY cool idea for the base! And the many parts works well with the model. Looking forward to the painted version!

Yup, pretty much a classic slice of awesome. Still my favorite Vect conversion. Twisted Evil

Oozes power and command. Your Vect is a great centrepiece for your army, EoE.

I had to snap a few quick pics as I was working on this Beauty.

Asdrubaels Vect's Pimp Ride; The Dais of Destruction, converted from a Forge World Tantalus Sky Serpent so graciously sent me after I redesigned the look of the Dark City Forum.

I started with a base Tantalus, added side gunners and an underslung las. I modified the shape of the sail around to accommodate them and I removed the pilot area and made that Vect's throne.

I still have a fair amount of work to do (like reconverting a new Vect mini sitting down) however, here's some pics of current status.

make sure you leave enough room for some "slaves" up there... if you don't know what to use... i could recommend some of the ladies from hasslefree Twisted Evil

In any chase, i deeply envy you for this beauty!

Thank you guys! I hoping this is my Dark Eldar tour de force.


This Boat is getting full!

Some more quick pics. (Terrible lighting I know)

I added the pilot, moved him down to lower front between the gunners. He originally was in the throne spot on the Tantalus Model. I added Vect's Staff Madien, worked on the throne some more and worked on the head honcho himself.

Wow! Love the addition of the passengers, though I'll call you a slacker for not sculpting cool retro cloaks on the Incubi to get the full effect Razz
(totally kidding; this is freaking AWESOME Twisted Evil )

Looks fantastic so far.

I second ESE's suggestion for cloaked Incubi.
I want to see an alien pet, more banners and maybe the vect slave girls too to tie it all together.

And a pony. Vect should definitely have a pony.

I def think I'm going to add the cloaks.
There is a dead elf at the base of one of the incubi, but I don't think I have room on the boat for slave girls.

...But I would like to add a Grinx!

Wouldn't leave much room for the pony though.


Sorry, I seem to have become slighlty obsessed over the pony.

By the Muses I hope so!!!!

Looking good, Eye! Just make sure your beastmasters have made the proper arrangements in the stables for a certain equine addition.

At last the Dais is fully built.

Here's some beauty pics before I get into the details.

















I started with the base Tantalus by drilling holes and putting reenforced brass tubing in for the stand. The FW kit came with a feeble plastic flying stand, what a joke.








The sail (Which was a night mare of a casting and highly warped when I received it) had to be substantially modified for 2 reasons. There was a huge amount of flash and miscasting and it extended too far back to accommdate all the crew and the new position of the pilot, underslung Lance and Vect's throne.





I added side Dark Lancers using raider prow gunners and installing magnetic mounts for the bottom of the gun shields. The underslung Dark Lance was done much the same way with a magnet mounted in the base of the model.

Room needed to be made for Vect's throne so I had to move the pilot down to front and center between the 2 Dark Lancers.

Vect's Staffmaiden was made from a Darf Elf Sorceress. I figured Vect is too arrogant to be bothered to carry his own staff when travelling.






















Vect's throne was made from a myriad of Dark Eldar & Dark Elf bits as well as a hefty amount of green stuff and plastic shapes. A magnet was added into Vect's Butt and the throne chair to allow me to remove him when he is disembarked.












No Evil Supreme Overlord would be complete without an evil pet! Hence the creation of Vect's Gyrinx!

A Gryinx is sometimes seen as a familiar to a Craftworld Eldar psykers. This makes sense to me with Vect, cause even though all Eldar have innate psychic abilities, the Dark Eldar shun them due to their location in the webway and not wanting to draw the eye of Slaanesh towards them. Vect however needs to stay on top of his game otherwise he gets overthrown quicker than you can saw "Commorragh". A little psychic help and some foresight would give him that edge to stay one step ahead of his usurpers.
