Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am having trouble deciding what model I want to use for my DE archon/drachon. He will have an agoniser/splinter pistol combo so I need something with a pistol and a CCW. I refuse to use either of the models available as they are both horrible. I am considering a Harlequin model (shadowseer) or a conversion from something else but I am out of ideas on what to use as the base for the conversion.
Any thoughts from the veterans here would be good. Thanks.
The base? The 25mm standard doesn't work for you?
And as for conversions, I suggest using Maugan Ra, and just graft on some weapons, It's kind of working for me, but I'm not done yet.
I really like the sybarite models, and use one for my lord.
I'm afraid I don't have much advice as far as conversions go. Keep in mind that there's no way to tell an agoniser from any other CC weapon, so as long as it looks sharp it should be fine.
Mine is just one of the warrior models given a fantasy sword and has a pistol holstered on his hip. Makes perfect sense he also has a cape from i think an old chaos model but im not sure.
Well if your feeling adventurous you can try this.
Use a warlock, chop an agoniser of the wyche succubus or warrior sebryte, although the wyche one looks better and is easier to work with, then take a head from an incubi and swap with the warlocks, a bit of work but looks the part.
If you're always worried about crushing the ants beneath you...you won't be able to walk.
I've got 2 converted lords using the Drazhar model. One has him holding a punisher with both hands with custom t-helm, horns and cape. The other is really Drazhars head on an incubi body (the one with the overcoats) holding a whip and pistol. Having both allows me to field either configuration to whatever mood I am in.
These are works in progress and some are missing components and finishing paint.
I like the ideas, I may have a look at trying Dizzie's idea. I will also ask some of the store staff and look through the online store.
Thanks for the thoughts and I want to leave you with one:
What is this new smilie doing/for:
Here's my punisher-archon: Rust, Lord Entropy.
He started off as a Harlequin Dark Reaper with weapon from the female DE lord and tormentor helm and glove from an incubus. Not a cost-efficient hack by any means!
I'm going to repeat this model sometime but paint it in night-time monochrome (black/indigo through shadow grey to pale grey highlights) to represent the Shadow Field.
That looks very nice. I like the lighting effect you have done from the staff weapon.
My color scheme is going to be a deep blue, highlighted to a lighter blue on the edges of the armour. I have an incubi painted as a test model and it looks pretty cool. I will post some pics later once I get a camera.
I use a simple incubi body guard model as a lord. I usualy use punisher and torm helm so is fits the WUSIWYG idea and looks great too.
