I like the originals, but they seem a bit off in scale – too small. I was thinking about getting 4 of them, but would entertain using different models – not even GW ones. I previously used Reaper models with good effects I think (look into (Show us your non-standard WH models!)THIS topic)...
If you used some different sculpts for these ladies, or if you know a model that would work in your opinion – post pictures or your thoughts here! THX

I don't have a camera so I'll just have to describe them for you...
I used Catachans with bandannas, arms from fantasy goblins (they don't look as stupidly Arnie-like as the Catachan arms, more lean muscle), some swords and daggers I had lying around, and I greenstuffed scarves on their faces. Now I have ninja with =][= tattoos on their shoulders. I'll borrow my friend's camera if you're interested.
Oh yeah, and as to the scale thing, one of the things I like about the DCA models is that they are small. They are meant to be women after all. It kind of bugs me that female GW minis aren't usually much smaller in bulk than the male ones. Women are generally quite a bit smaller than men, especially if the man is a big soldier and the woman is fit and slender from practicing stabbing and backflips all day. That's why I used an Escher juve for my callidus. It's meant to be a teenage girl but she looks like a normal sized woman compared to all the blokes in my army.
I was inspired by this thread to see what I could come up with using GW plastics...because, who really wants to use metal models? (not that I actually play WH/DH just too much time on my hands)
This is what I managed, it's only a quick job, and still needs greenstuff to sort bits and pieces out, but all in all, do you think it's acceptable?
(oh it's on a 40mm base because that's what I had available at that second )
(it's made from Dire Avenger legs, and the female Dark Elf Warrior body and head, and uses just a couple of the arms from that box too)

Also, you got me with the female models/scale thing. I was looking at my old witch elves, and they are huge ladies, but I think the more recent models are better. So consider my remark taken back
Yes - I did a lot of research into female anatomy over the weekend – LOL - and I agree that more recent GW sculpts are OK. As stated above - original DCAs are actually up to scale with the male models if you look at them side by side... Also, from all that looking I kind of started to like the models! Will be challenging to paint since everything is so small, but I am just finishing one Inquisitor that is also about that same size, so… Fell like I am up to it
My two alternatives from above are actually 32mm models - big dissapointment here Reaper and such produce interesting dual-blade models but none of them look particularly 40K-like... Necromunda has interesting Malcadon Spyrer models, but they are twice the price of regular DCAs, and still metal... In all, I think that I am going to pony up cash for 6 regular DCAs and use them, as I really have no bitz to work with, or talent for GS conversions - I think that I can only convert tanks
i found this one at a hobby store and i think it works quite nicely as a death cult despite holding that huge sword which i just say is the power weapon
THAT'S JAKOB WITH A 'K'!
