Welcome to Librarium Online!
My craftworld is darker then most and I wanted to add a unit that would fluff up my army a bit. The ideology of my craftworld is very much based off of Khaine so I thought why not use witch elves as harlequins? They are lightly armoured, fast lookings, and crazy to boot. Plus, they have some awesome models. Heres my troupe leader: (The rest are in the process of painting but have had guns converted on )
Sorry, but i had to borrow the camera so I'm not good with it and its not the highest resolution. But, before xmas i promised to post some of my work, and this is as good of excuse as any.
Anyone, else improve the fluffyness of there army by using substitute models or crazy conversions.
The idea to use Witch Elves as Harlequins is awesome.
But they should have shuripistols. Are there some shuripistols in plastic?
i used some exarch shuricats from the dire avengers sprue that and the pistols attached to the forarm. The model i have shown doesn't have a pistol but instead a force sword. (I wanted to keep the chalice.)
Looks pretty good!
I've been thinking about an alternative way to make some Harlies. I need about 30 of them, and don't really feel like getting 30 of those new ones when they come out. They look cool, but their poses are so... excentric... that duplicates will be way too obvious.
My main problem has been finding pistols. The only plastic ones you get are on Exarchs, and there's only 1 of them in each box. I guess I could order a whole bunch of metal ones, but they're like 1 pound each...

I'm going to be using some of the Harlequin models (the current ones, not the new ones) and some of the old school guardians w/ powersword and shuripistol to represent Storm Guardians.
There are some great models there, if anyone is looking for Harlequin alternate poses.
Gareth is the person I try to impress when I convert and paint.
For my Harlequins, Im gonna convert most of my current range models and give them all Harleqiuns kisses via green stuff... Nice and easy to do and considering the new list - it fits more with WYSIWYG.
For my Great Harlequin, I have used an old range Dire Avenger Exarch and given him a Harlequins Kiss on the right hand (that is pointing)
I would have though blood bowl and Wood elf war dancers are both potentially a good source of potential Harlequin minis

I'd say that the Dark Age line of miniatures are very good for harlie conversions, if you aren't constrained by official tourney Citadel-Taliban rules, lol. They are inspired by Brom's artwork and they look quite good.

bondage-ish girl with swords
beastlike girl with kick-ass fan
I'm a bit disquieted by these guys with spiky masks but otherwise they look perfect
some of them need a lot of work done on them, like the girl with paws, but most of the others need just a green stuff domino mask and some shuriken pistol/harlie kiss stuck somewhere on their person.
I think that I'll follow your example and get some hag queen/wardancer and some of these Dark Ages miniatures to do a couple of kick ass harlie units.
