I've been pondering on adding Harlies to my Disco Booters, but kinda don't feel like spending so much on them to field 20-30 Harlies and Shadowseers/Death's Jesters. Has any of you tried to convert other models into Harlequins? I was thinking about picking some wych boxes, painting them accordingly and kit-bashing some bits to make them look harlequin enough. This could even work for Death's Jesters with creative head picks (like har-ganeth executioners etc.) and aproppriately modeled Dark Lance.

Edit: From my research into GW models,  these units (other than wyches) could make nice Harlequins at lower price:
Sisters of Slaughter

Wardancer Command

For a more commando approach, mage hunter infiltrators:

If you play covens, it might be a funky idea to kit bash wyches with Wracks for a more grotesque troupe.

A fun idea for a Shadowseer, just add a staff in her hands
Issyria, Sybil of Dawn

I will update the list with more models if I find any nice options from non-GW sculpting companies.

Hi.

I hope you don't think it presumptuous of me to link you to my own project log, but I have based an army around a harlequin/carnival theme predominantly using wych, scourge and dark elf wyches as the base. Simple bits swapping or kit bashing can really achieve a nice effect without having to spend a fortune. Maybe buy one box of harlies and mix all the bits in with the wych kits as you will get far more for your money that way. I am going to do that for my vehicle crews and second scourge team.

These are brilliant - not exactly what I was aiming at, but gave me some really nice ideas. Thanks a lot. Smile

Thanks Smile

I know they are more carnival than harlequin, but it shows how versatile the wych and scourge kits are. With a little conversion work and bits swapping you can really fit them to any theme you want Smile

Also check out this log. It was one of the things that inspired me to start my army
