Hi all - am planning on converting some Wyches into Harlequins. I will be using the blank Wych heads but wondered if the community had any ideas on what else I might use, maybe plastic wood elves or something I haven't yet looked at?

Cheers

Mark

I think you should look to the new wave releases for pose inspiration. The Venom hangers on and Scourges all have dynamic poses, perfect for a Harlequin Troupe. You'd also be able to recover possibly half your expenses selling the unused Scourges on the Barter-port here at The Dark City.

I'd wager well more than half if you don't use the wings. Those things are going to be selling faster than hotcakes.

I ike the look of the Scourges (thoug not sure how to use them in my army) so could prob justify getting a second box giving me spare wings etc. Venoms will have to wait - the plan is to use some of the Heavy Support choices as anti-infantry which means I'll prob be better off with raiders to ensure a reasonabe amount of Dark Lances etc. I may be able to use the hangers on from the raider/ravager kits in that way I guess. the Wych poses are pretty solid though, are any of the fantasy kits compatible to make them stand out?

There is a thread on Warseer in the Xenos project logs about Dark Harlequins. The WIP PLOG kitbashes current Eldar, Dark Eldar and Dark Elf plastic kits. I don't have the time to look for the thread for you, but I'm sure you could find it if you took a look.

I have used bits from Empire and High Elves aswell as Eldar and Dark Eldar for my Harlequins and Harlequin-inspired army.

Those are really very impressive speedfreek! Some lovey figures well painted.

I was thinking as a concept how would Tim Burton do Harlequins - how to keep the playful asthetic while still fitting with the rest of the army. I may go for a combination of orange and green with a third colour for spot detail. Not sure I have the ability to do as intricate patterns as those

Another idea along those lines could be Dark Harlequin. Think Hellraiser meets Craftworld models.
