I'm a GK player converting to more of an Inquisitorial Army (Inquisitor as main HQ and a good mix of GKs and WH, especially anything dark and evil like Arcos, exorcists,etc), and need some modeling advice from the crew here. I don't like the Seraphim models, and love the Raptor models. So with some hand weapon conversions, flames and books, I could have a cool FA unit, but is there a good female head out there to replace the sargents chaos head? The Canoness' head looks good, but I was wondering about any other heads, since I already have her in my force.
Overall I think Raptors are more elegant than the SM assault models, more twisted with inquisitorial flair, and just the shape of the jetpacks alone look more sleek, but not whimply like the Seraphim. Also, they look like a unit that would have 3+ save. And with female heads, would look like a unit with S3.
I think that it might fly for you - Raptors are really nice, but I do not know ow they will mix wit otehr WH models on the table... Good Luck!
As far as the heads, I don't know, as far as the idea.....
I don't think replacing only the sarges head is the way to go, otherwise everytime you face somone new the'll be log "OMMG! You gotz teh Raptors from teh Cha0s list0rz!!!!Haxxor!!!!"
You'd really need to do something big or special to the models, mainly to help them lose the link to Chaos.
True, they need to look like witchhunters. So I'll need bits on each model in addition to the WYSWYG of weapons. But I think with the flames base and smooth lines, it won't be hard to lose the chaos look.
I like the flame cage on top of the Canoness, so I see those on the sarg too, I'll also model those spikes you see on sister pack packs on top of the chaos trim around armour. And I think only one or two will have sister sister helmets, and the others will have none. Raptor heads are too evil to keep. And somehow I see Celestine bits added to the sarg as the leader in this squad, but more thought needs to go into that one.
In my list in general there will be no actual sisters. More elite freaks. STs will be the troops as that's more in line with an Inquisitor's choice. That way the Raptors won't look funny next to a very lighter looking sister squad.
The combat core is GKs in immolators. STs in Chimeras
And don't worry about the fluff, I will be phasing out the GKs as I get more combat beef to replace them and will be adding daemon host, etc. More freaks for the show. Damn elite FOC limitations.
Any updates or pictures on this project?
