I've been meaning to get a beastmaster unit together for a while now, but some quick calculations told me getting 6 razorwing bases from GW is not really a financially sound option. This got me thinking what kind of models I could use as stand ins for the razorwing flock. I want to stick to GW models because of tournaments, but other than that I'm open to any and all suggestions.
I was thinking of maybe using the FW flying rippers (http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Warhammer-40000/Tyranids/TYRANID-RIPPERS-WITH-WINGS.html) and de-tyranidify them.
Some models in the Warmaster range might work as well, although I don't really like the look of those.

Ideas? Suggestions?

Rippers might work, however I wonder why they need to be de-tyranified. I can imagine how some beastmaster can think those odd small bastards will make a great entertainment on the arena.

Mostly because I don't like the look of Tyranids Razz.

Ah! Good reason indeed. I suppose winged rippers would work, what if you made gs feathers on them? I did that on a group of tzeentchian bestigors long ago...
Otherwise I can imagine that many of the WHFB swarm figures or the like can look interesting as razorwings if you put tiny wings on them. Snakes, lizards, rats... Nurglings... Well, maybe not Laughing

How about Necron Scarabs? Attach curved blades to them, paint it not-like-Necron and you should be fine.

Or sculpt them yourself, it's actually easy.

I saw someone using the leaves from the GW trees. It wasn't that amazingly done, but as a concept it was excellent. I may have a go myself.

This literally came into my head, might actually do it myself.

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat490082a&prodId=prod1130116

Undead Carrion from Warmaster. £8.70 = 3 stands, 12 birds.

If you're going for 5 birds a base then £19.40........

Ooooops, it's only 4 birds a blister. Just an alternative then.
