After buying my army all at once 3 months ago I finally have it all together for the most part. However I dont really care for the extra models that are supposed to hang on the transports and ravagers. I was kinda looking for ideas for what to do with em...proxies for harlequins maybe? Any and all ideas are welcome!

Warriors can be used for Scourges and Incubi.

Wyches... Yes, they would fit Clowns. Maybe Hellions, provided You have Baron Whathisface.

I find that the poses are such that they don't look quite right when portrayed as flying or leaping. Since they're supposed to be hanging, the center of gravity is wrong and they just look off.

So I've chopped them up and used their limbs and heads to provide some variety to other units or to make Trueborn. Their "hanging on" hands are nice to put other weapons or grenades in. Maybe also to hold a skull or other trophy of battle.

Because the pose tends to be a little weird for standard basing. I used built up rocks so they look like they are stepping on or over a large rock.

There are a lot of rocks on my bases, LOL.

Yes.
Or sculpt, not hard at all.


I can give link to tutorial (... mine Smile) but it's in Polish :/
And frankly not so good, tho result looks kinda nice if You skip armor plates.

Good tutorial, Local_Ork. The membranes between the bones turned out cool. Google translates it to english well. Few words were little odd, but no worse then regional differences between English speaking countries local variations. Many where I'm from won't watch British tv, they say they can't understand it. They don't know what they're missing.

After messing up my last Archon I needed to replace him with what bits I had laying around so I used a hanging body, reaver helm, power sword, shard net cape and blast pistol all mounted on a flying base to make his less than awesome posture make sence... did I mention he is wearing a retrofire jet on his back Wink

I made a female archon out of one of the raider hanger figs. The one that had seperate legs, posed like she was leaping past a enemy, while twisting to swing husk blade at them. Used some leftover kabilite/wych parts also.

The flying archon sounds cool, Marquis Vaulkhere. To bad there are no flying options for Archons anymore, I use to use jetbike/skyboard archons.

Do you guys have pics of those conversions? The few I've seen might have just been poorly done. I'd like to see your efforts. I'll be glad if I was wrong cause then I'd have more uses for them. ^_^

My friend who is also doing DE gave me a bunch of those parts since I'm going for a Wych heavy theme, and the Infinity style scenic bases I'm using make for good foundations for the couple I did. I should be able to post pics later, since my completed stuff is at my other friend's house where we all do our modeling.

I'm in the middle of assembling my DE army atm, I use a couple of the venom hanging bodies as extra wyches or warriors as their feet is more leveled. I then replace the space left on venoms with hanging bodies from the raiders.

For venoms: total of 3 crew(pilot/gunner/guy hanging-raider guy hanging on hook is an easy fit.
For ravagers and raiders: total of 4 crew(captain/gunner/2 hanging guy)

I also found a easy way to make the raider a ravager, I simply used the leftover dark lances from the warriors and put it on a hanging body on the raider=ravager.

LOCKING THIS THREAD for Threadomancy!

Last post was 2012, this thread has probably served its purpose.


@macknight, I appreciate and want to motivate you to continue sharing your experience with your army and progress. And I recommend you open up a Project Log, or simply create a new thread similar to this one. Thanks!
