Hi folks!

I was a bit quiet recently, but I managed to make some conversions for fellow Warseer-ers:

First up, Arco Flagellants for a Witchhunter army Dio'ra has MAS to make him:

As I already know they found his fancy, I will be painting these soon.

Then, there is a VERY late job of 8 Flash Gitz. Lots of other commissions running, a bit of misunderstanding, then short memory, then postal problems with bitz... Equals a job we started talking about in January is finished now :eek:

I won't be painting these.

When I read flagellant conversion I said to myself.. *please be made from the new ghouls, its exactly what project I have going on in my basement!*.

LOL, awesome work Hortwerth. Too bad about that mis-communication for the gitz commission, the guy had to wait so long... Trust me, I know how that feels. :p

The flash gitz are very characterful and cleanly produced.

You have no idea how much I wanted your flagellant conversions to be made from the ghouls. The main reason is because far from the plasti WhfB "Empire Flagellants* and there flails, I had no other ideas of how to customize them. But now I see that you simply just go with what looks cybernetic and what matches the metal models. Like the vials and other things on the flagellants backs.

On a client's request, I added a bolted-on eyepatch and a squigbeard to 2 of the Flash Gitz:

I also made 3 more Arco Flagellants as I had the parts left over from the Ghouls set, primed them and they'll hit eBay today:

Those Arcos are just amazing!!

I've searched long time to find a solution how to do Arcos relatively cheap. Now I found a solution.

This idea has been stolen by D3V!L !:D

Hortwerth, those Arco Flagellants are terrifying. How do you dream up something like that?
Did you have a rough childhood?

One or two of those guys may be chasing me in my dreams tonight.
