I finished another unit for my Dark Eldar army. The latest addition is a unit of three Grotesques. These should appear like the link between my Wracks and the Cronos. My Lady Haemonculus has her very own style as a flesh-twisting artist and I want to show that in my, ehm her creations.
The models are based on a Genestealer torso, which were placed on legs of the Dark Elfs from Blood Bowl. The legs were extended with Wraith-Guard legs. A Scourges back was placed on the shoulders and a Reiver-grav-thing was also placed on the back. The armour which was created this way got it's full effect from the paintjob. The slightly converted heads are from the Wraith-Guards and I really love that Xenomorph-like shape!
I'm working like a manianc on my first small army, so here is a quick update. I reached approx. 450 - 500 points and this is a really satisfying project so far.
My latest addition to this force are two Venoms. I really like their stealth-bomber-like appearance. These are the most out of the box models I've done so far. The only thing I have changed are the crew's heads.
I have a few plans what I want to add to my coven, so stay tuned and thank you very much for your visit! Best regards!
sorry for the lack of updates, but I am quite busy on all fronts these days. During the last weeks I made a satisfying start at building up my first (ever) 40K army. I love the Drukhari, their lore and their cruel elegance. So there was no doubt to choose this faction. Part one of my army will be a Haemonculus Coven.
One thing I really like about the Dark Eldar, espacially the Haemonculus, is the opportunities they offer for conversions. They are such a horrific and terrifying race that you can build some sinister creations.
The first model I would like to show is a converted Haemonculus. I choose a female one, just because I've never seen one before. I used the lower half of the Nighthaunt Tomb Banshee and replaced the torso. I really wanted to have that hoovering look like the original model has.
I build up two units of Wracks. Each unit contains 5 Wracks each. I like the official models, but after reading the truly awesome 'Path of the Dark Eldar' novels from Andy Chambers, I just had a quite different vision for these servants. So I converted and kitbashed my own version of them. They are based on Crypt Ghoul torsos and Kabalite Warrior legs. I used masks from the Daughters of Khaine and heads from the Spite-Revenants. Arms were token from nearly every aelven-like kit I have.
Cronos Parasite Engine
Next I wanted to create an alternate version of the Cronos. I wanted to create a tall, nightmarish, creepy monster. I combined a lot of different parts from Tyranid Warriors, Wraithguards, Canoptek Wraiths, Helions and many more various bits to bring my vision to life. And I really love my sinister looking creation.
As always, thank you very much for your visit and stay tuned!
