Im going to do some based on the standard guardians.

Any suggestions for the look? I was thinking rough guys in dented up kit with lots of bags and pouches on them.

If you have a bit of money to spnd Forgeworld does an upgrade kit t turn Guardians into Corsairs.

It's quite pricey for what it is, but if you don't really have a set budget it makes some really good Corsairs.

You could also try adding more banners and blades and stuff to tem to give them a corsair feel. I have some Guardians and I gave them some Wych heads, mainly the heads tht have a mask or carf covering the lower half of the face, and it really works to make them look more piratey.

Those helmets on them look damn good!
*sigh* I promised myself though not to spend money on Forge World stuff... but maybe someday...

You can get a lot of the DE kits such as the heads. Hellion heads pretty much give them an edgy look without any big effort. Here is a pic of some WIP jetbikers of mine:

I mixed old dark eldar, scourges heads, kabalite legs and the rest dire avengers to make kabalite/dire avenger/corsairs models so I could flip them between all 3 rule sets.

I used the eight of a square WHFB base on each of their shoulders as jump packs, as there is no way I am forking out for the FW stuff.

Tose are some nice models, ESE and Dragontree.

I would certainly down the kitbashing route. There are so many possibilities and you can make each model have its own unique character.

They're TROOPS!! Jetpack infantry as troops with access to missile launchers and SC's is a beautiful thing.

They hang out with my Exodites. (I figured there was no other way to get my Dinos into SPAAACCEEE...) So they must be lame...

Are you using the rules from Doom of Mymeara, then, or just CWE? I jumped to conclusions and thought you meant Corsairs with jet packs
