HARLEQUINS DEATH JESTER AS A DARK ELDER LORD CAN IT BE DONE ??
sorry about the shouting !
i have mangered to collect a small force of dark elder.
I like the basic models but i cant stand the Dark Elder lord.
Would the death jester make a good substute ?
I have never seen the real model only whats on ebay. Im ok
with chopping and swooping heads and guns.
Any ideas ??
here is the link....
Wouldn't be a terrible idea. What did you have in mind for replacing that Shrieker Cannon?
any advice would be great, i just want to keep the basic shape of the model so
some kind of rifle. Sorry i dont the Dark Elder weapon names yet, im still
wait for the codex to turn up.
I'm not sure, but I think that Lords can take splinter rifles, though it'd be a waste of his initiative.
I don't know much about Dark Eldar Weaponry either. Look at some pics on the GW site for some ideas.
DE Archons can take Splinter rifles, but yeah.. it's a waste of the initiative he has. Perhaps you could model the weapon into a CCW of some sorts. An exotic looking scythe.
Use it as Poison blades or a Punisher. Or even a generic CCW. You could eventually say that it's a Agonizer. DE weapons do look pretty exotic anyway. It's just... the Shrieker cannon as a 2 handed weapon, that would count as a 1 handed Agonizer... would be kinda awkward.
I think it would look great as the HQ in a DE army. Might think about this myself whenever I pick up my DE army.
personally i think the troupe master or the shadow seer would make a better base for a DE lord.
hmmm... my brother plays DE. now i have to go buy some crappy eldar to make into good old evil ones

Prog rock FTW!
I agree with beatonthis in that the shadowseer or the troupemaster will be the better option. :yes:
Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.
If you don't like the lord why not try something like this?
This is what I used, model number 2, the guy with the sword. Stick some technology on him, like some more blades and a terrorfex or watever and he will very quickly look more 40k-ish.
The Death jester could be made into a Dark Eldar lord but it won't be the easierst conversion. The first part to look at is the weapon he has. That could be made into an unusual but convincing punisher without to much trouble. Cut off the end and add a large blade of some kind. GW mail order is full of that sort of thing particularly in the Dark elf section.
If you have only seen this model on Ebay I suggest that you buy it. It is very hard to know exactly what you will do with a model, what fits and what doesn't if you don't actually have the model. Also to make this or any other model that isn't Dark Eldar into Dark Eldar you will need to break it's ties to it's original army.
I would start by finding something barbaric such as some severed heads to have hanging from his waist or whatever. A trophy rack will work well to. The zombie sprue has some severed heads and the Chaos marines, particularly the Terminators, have loads of trophy racks and so on.
Other bits could be things like spare parts and blades/spikes from the Dark Eldar sprues. These will help him to break his ties with the Harlequins. If you give him that punisher I imagine you will want a tormentor helm and there are loads of Incubi bodies to get and cut one from. If you look at Drazhar that fancy Incubi dude you will see he has a tormentor helm but it is a little different from the common ones. This means you can make an unusuall helmet and not have to cut of his head completely if you want to keep it.
