I don't like the Dark Reaper model that much. In the entire Eldar miniature range I find the Darkreaper model to look a little too cumbersome for my taste.
So I decided to try to find models that could replace them and have some conversions done to them so my opponent can know which units in my army are Reapers and which are'nt.
So I was browsing the Eldar Miniatures gallery and I found the Rangers.
See how their black cloaks kinda remind you of the cloak the grim reaper wears? (as long as the cloaks are in black, which is what I plan to do.
I like the heads with hoods too, it gives that Grim Reaper like feel to the unit.
Heres the problem.
Not all heads have hoods (I want them to look like grim reapers damit!) on them and the guns just don't look like they are heavy weapons.
To compensate for this I thought of chopping the barrels of the rifles off and replacing them with the green part (gauss) of the necron gun (I like the hook/scyhe like tip of the gauss gun too because it also gives that grim reaper like feel to the model and the fact that the green part just looks cool)
With the guns out of the way I thought about the heads.
Not all of the heads have hoods so I thought that I should make use of the rest of the necron set by using the skull like heads of the Necron Warriors to be the heads of the models without hoods.
That sounds fine but, Dark Reapers wear skull masks and I'd be damned to see an Eldar with a skull for a face.
So I need to turn those skull like warrior heads into mask like things or helmets.
Do any of you guys have suggestions?
Maybe some Necron models have really big heads that would look like helmets on Ranger models.
I don't want to use the Dark Reaper helmet for the heads.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thanks Alot ^^
hmm, ok factors:
1. reapers are bulky because they wear bulk armour (hence the armour save)
2. the gun, as you point out the ranger long rifle doesnt cut it, but for my noney nor does cron stuff, wqhy not use EML?
3. the whole "dark reaper"/Grim reaper thing - the grim reaper is human mythos, not eldar
Everything you have been told is a lie!
1. I know but I like the cloaks alot better.
2.Yeh i thought of using the EML but then my models just won't have the cloak on their rams and that would make them look akward. Personaly I like the Cron stuff. I love that green thing
3.I know, but we are human players.
