Chaos Marauder champion cloaks from WFB.

Might add some extra color details to their armor, but as I have yet to decide upon a color scheme, thats all for now :p

I considdered for a while to give them Scourge wings, but I figured it would've been a bit too much Final fantasy :p

I used the Reaver Tron helmets(like EVERYONE else did) and gave them the Syrabite/Hekatryx trophy racks. Seems to work, though I really only have the one 4-man Blasterborn squad.

I didn't! ...alright, I used one. But otherwise I stuck with a mish-mash of pieces - I didn't want my Trueborn to look uniform. I feel like Kabalite Trueborn would go even further out of their way to appear as individual as possible on the battlefield, considering how they see themselves genetically superior to the standard, vat-grown Kabalites.

Storm your bitz-box for personal touches. I think that fits Trueborn far better than a uniform goldfish-bowl look.

Ultimately, of course, it's a matter of taste.

Something that protects the eye, there was info about dark light weapons that they scar unprotected retina if it watch on the beam of dark light.

My trueborn are helmetless. I paint the hair different colors to identify the different units.

All my warriors have helmets.

My Trueborn are both regular Kabalites (just with Phantasm grenade launcher bits for the coolness aspect or flags), or the Wyches that come with the Venom kit given blasters and posed on some terrain.

I used the mantles from the WHFB Phoenix Guard kit, and only used helmets with hair sprouting out from the top. Those mantles are particularly fitting to my kabal, as the have a flame pattern.

OK thanks for everyone's ideas. I only started playing 40k in the last couple of months so I dont have a massive bit box yet to rummage through. And I went with the best army first so I dont have anything but DE stuff LOL.

I used the hangers on from the Raider kit arranged in various poses on scenic bases. I've also left them with unhelmeted heads. All my other Kabalite Warriors have helmets on so the Trueborn stand out. To be honest you don't see them that often unless their Venoms get taken out lol.

Working on my first unit of true born now. Like Raucir I'm making each one an individual. As this first unit is essential the bodyguard for my Duke counts as, I'm carrying the pirate theme through.

The Dracon uses the Succubus body with blast pistol and hellion head as well as an arm from the WHFB DE Corsairs. Second one is venom hanger on mixed with slyth.

I've used pretty much a mix of 2 types of helmets, but the main helmet is the spikey one found on the Raider kit. Have also converted a backpack of sorts using spikey bits of the Raider sails and masts, again more spikey goodnes........or should that be spikey BADNESS.........

Each Warrior box makes 3 Blasters, the 2 converted Blasters I've used Shredder/Blast nozzle combo and a sawn-off Dark Lance

You could also try raiding the hellions sprue, noticed last night they have some skulls impaled on spikes that could replace the spikes on the normal warriors shoulder pads. You get a couple of similar ones on the raider kit, though the spikes aren't quite as extravagant.
