They'll drag you to Commoragh!

Hello everyone,

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.

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!
