That's rather spiffy! Excellent work, and good luck to you using him in games. As a 230-point HQ (only 10 points cheaper than Vect himself!) I find him sorely lacking in survivability.

The pose in the codex is actually very different to the pose you've got him in, but necessary - the pose in the codex is something only Dark Eldar or a Slaaneshi worshipper would be able to hold. That's his RIGHT leg in the foreground, for God's sake! Bodies shouldn't twist like that!

To summarise, fantastic conversion, looking forward to seeing the paintscheme you use!

WTF?!?! I just looked at the pic again and your right... he is massively turned to the left over his left leg upon close inspection...

Think i may have to start again...

Nonsense, this is a great conversion! I was just pointing out how difficult GW's artists have made it for anyone trying to make a Drazhar of their very own. Very Happy

I actually must whine about using Wych legs instead of Kabalite ones. Underpants just don't give 3+ armour save. I think that ones from Raider kit would fit tho, similar pose.

Aren't those the legs of a Scourge?
If not, consider using Scourge's legs instead.

It was just annoying is all as i missed it in the initial planning... he was seconds away from the knife... but i decided i liked it as is rather than trying to match that exactly... it FEELS like the pic even if its not exact.

Yep - converted scourge legs as i wanted the tall mantis type description.

I actually had to widen his hips and stance considerably as the scourge legs or almost skipping...

Paint started so more pics shortly!

Glad to hear that you didn't scrap it and start over. I really liked the conversion and may steal the idea for a Klaivex conversion! Twisted Evil Can't wait for the paint!

+1 on Awesome comment for Model =]


Also, just wondering where did you get the blades for the Demi Klavies?

Luv it, awesome indeed! Very nice conversion, you have captured the original artwork extremely well Massaen, and your paint job is nice and clean as well.

Well done!

Have to chime in with the rest of the wows and praise - that is an amazing conversion. I really wish GW released a model for him, but your conversion is incredibly close to the artwork.
