I've always found the archon official model very nice, but too satic to be a good leader for my wyches... so after a lot of thinking (evaluating Prince Yriel and Wood Elf Highborn as base model for a conversion) i decided to scratch build him starting from one of the Raider's hanging kabalites!

It's almost finished, I have to do only some small details. What do you think?

PS: sorry for the low quality pics

I think he looks amazing. More so if he's an Archon leading Wyches, as with the stance and topknot would fit really well with the models.

Very fancy, and a great paintjob will make this guy look even better! I quite like the improvised huskblade - simple, yet very elegant.

When he will be finished il show you the paintjob for sure... The only thing that I have to finish is his hand: I don't know what to put in it. I originally think about a soul trap, but I'm thinking to throw it away from my list (used only once in the fifth turn XD)... so probably I'll leave the hand empty and maybe I'll put something in it in the future... or do you have some suggestions?

Awesome job!!

Really like the way u built up the base to fit the stance, I havent done any of the bases yet but have been magnetizing all of my vehicle crew members to use as regular warriors when they disembark, free models!

Glad to see it can be done so well

Edit: As for what to put in his hand, if u mean from a gameplay equipment point of view... no idea...
But for fluff/ conversion I got a few suggestions
-Slave tracker/Eldar version of auspex (Venom pilot control screen?)
-*Insert skull/gruesome trophy*
-Holding a chain connected to a slave of choice added to his base
-Grenade/Detonator or slave collar remote control shock collar, explosive collar, who knows

My converted GW archon just has a little green stuff ball meant to look like Vect's orbs of darkness cus I plan on using him as vect

I second this, I like the 'come get some' attitude of the empty hand.

Sadly I've stopped to work on my DE for a little time (I have a big tournament this week end, and my DE are too low on points, so I've got to work on my Dark Angels). After that I'll show him to you all painted... in his dramatic pose!
