One of the advantages of being a tabletop player since 1998 is a large collection of miniatures. Ten years ago I was playing Devourer of Vile-Tis in the skirmish game Confrontation. The game and the producing company are long gone. After re-reading the Codex Dark Eldar I was thinking about using them as alien mercenaries. GW only produces one (boring and expensive) model for the Clawed Fiends and I think the Devourers match the stats very well.
What do you think (khymera and normal wych are shown for style and size comparison)?

These are awesome models, and yes, a great alternative to the Clawed Fiend. I certainly wouldn't mind playing against them. I think there is great potential for us with alien mercenaries.

I wouldn't mind playing against this and frankly it only makes a difference in that your opponent now gets a better line of sight to the model, since you have no shooting you don't get a benefit from the larger size, and it is harder for you to get a cover save as the model requires more to obscure it. All in all it is not an advantage to you. Honestly I loved Confrontation and miss it dearly so seeing the models again would be great. I still have my wolfen and may do the same. Smile

I would definitely play against you, and I don't even care what do you use those awesome models as - Clawed Fiends or Grotesques, they can honestly be both.

Thanks for your feedback. Now it's time to build to build some beastmasters. I have two ideas:
a) stay with a wolven theme and put some wyches on riding wolves from the LotR/ Hobbit range
or
b) staying with a mercenary theme and use the theme "brain and muscles" the clawed fiends as muscles come along the the "brains" - SciFi Bounty Hunters with some kind of JetPack/ Jumppack on their backs (like Boba Fett from Star Wars)

Personally, I'd really love to see the mercenary theme played out. Dark City, after all, is the city of equality when it comes to murder and manhunting - every xenos race is free to sell their services, as long as they can survive. I think they would look fantastic!
