I.e. this lovely bugger: https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Bones/latest/77082#detail/77082_w_1 The smooth face-y bit immediately made be think of a Talos or Chronos engine, moreso the Chronos - since I believe it'd make use of all that pain and emotion on the battlefield to flare it up with extra energy.

However, being the modelling nut I am, I'm hesitant to purchase one and field it bare-bones and I wonder what I could do to Coven it up a bit?

Ideally what comes to mind would to find a way to slap an extra Talos mask on the front, but I'm also loath to slice away at that smooth, alien0ish head it has to try it.

The irony is that I probably won't make use of the Chronos tentacles for it - instead saving them for a Coven-specific raider where I can also plug a Dark Elf Cold One head in the place of the shock prow for s**** and giggles. XD

Anyway, any ideas? Or is it a pretty much cut-&-dry 'slap Dark Eldar bits on it and call it a day' kind of situation?

Find a way to slap a talos carapace on it, as if the flames are shooting out from beneath it?

Maybe craft a facemask for it with green stuff, could work though, and as Mr_Pink suggested try and get a carapace on it, make it armored, but then pure energy.

Agreed! It makes me wish that the Talos kit had included an additional back carapace, but I can snag one from ebay if need be.

And the go-to wargear choice for it is the Sprit Probe, right? That's the proboscis looking thingy for one of it's faceplates?

How about a projection platform?

I'm thinking along the lines of this fro Star Wars:

Maybe more compact, hovering instead of on legs. Put the model you're thinking of on a platform thats projecting it.

Could work well! I just wondering how well it could balance even using a large flying base. Could also look nice with all the curved blades from the raider kits projecting from said projection platform. Though I also could use said blades to pepper the arms and body of the Cronos itself to beef it up a bit since I won't be using the tentacles on it.

Hmm... decisions, decisions.
