Thats about it really. I want something cheap that I can use as a model for Sanctioned Psykers in Psyker Battle Squads.

Thanks in advance

Empire Battle Wizards plastic Kit mixed with Cadian weapons maybe?

Thats exactly what I would call expensive... I mean something like a box of 10 for $22-$35 like most core models.

I think your best bet would be to look through Reapers online store.

A few players here use WHFB Flagellants as their PBS models.

They're one of the better cheaper options for plastics.

If you are just doing a single squad, the GW psykers blister does come with three psyker models, so you could get three of them for not much more than what you are looking at and have the squad.

I've suggested that myself to a local guard player. He's currently using Catachans, which _isn't_ a good substitute.

The robes and the crazy make a good look for psyker models, particularly with the stocks, torches and scourges. Play up the 'imperial gothic' angle a bit.

I agree with voss as the flagerant kit is good and then add a warrior preist with hammers as the over seer works well and looks good.

The Flagellant kit would be perfect, IMHO. And at 13 it's pretty cheap for a full PBS.

I guess that I'll try some Empire flagellants with cadian bits and if it fits with some WE Glade Guard cloaks (have to try to see if I can remove the arrows).

I use a unit of 3 Metal Sanctioned Psyker, 6 Empire Flagellents mixed with cadian and catachan bits and a model I had lying around with a lasgun and a hammer as the overseer.

The Witch Hunters inquisitorial henchmen are still available for 9 on the GW site and you get a couple of suitable models in there and the Sanctioned sykers blister is good value for 3 models. Also, sometimes the priests and mystics come up for a good price on Ebay now and then if you're patient.

Beyond that I have to throw my lot in with Empire Flagellants. Great models and you can always sell the extra parts off and at elast break even in bits.
