So I saw a link about this idea on the WoC forum and got me to thinking about my least favorite looking army. Anyone have suggestions on filler that would look cool for corsairs?
Not entirely sure what you mean by "filler." Do you mean to use instead of the Corsairs models?
(WH40K) Dark Eldar - (12,000pts) Sisters of Battle - (5000pts) Dark Angels -(3500pts) (WHFB) Dark Elves - (10,000pts) Beastmen - (5000pts) Empire - (3000pts) Wood Elves - (1500pts)
Ya basically...the post I was reading talks about using a model of some type like maybe a cauldron to represent a bunch of corsairs in the middle of the block rather than having to buy 40 corsairs (or my true hatred making them line up and look good)
The filler he means is this -
x = Actual corsair model
o = a creative thing in the middle that represents 12 corsairs, which you remove once 12 die. It could be a few corsairs on a big base sacrificing a chaos warrior, or something cool looking that looks like it could belong in the middle of an army.
The purpose is to be able to rank up those pesky corsairs and their annoying weapons etc that never like to fit together..
you could go buy a mini ark from a christian store or something and put in on a monster base....
One good unit filler I've seen used is Corsairs with hunting wolves (chained Chaos Hounds). You can stick them on 40mm bases so they'll count as 4 models. I personally don't have any unit fillers at all...I'm the fool who actually painted and has to rank up 50 Witch Elves, 50 Corsairs, 76 Crossbowmen and 70 Spearmen.....Corsairs are the only ones that are b*tches to rank up neatly though.....
If I remember correctly Chariot bases are 6x3 (might be 1-2 smaller/larger) so those could come in useful if you want to use them for unit fillers.
You could also have a few dioramas of netted/harpooned captives the Corsairs have run down in there.
