I'm bringing a thread over here that I've started on the Dark City as well.



Time to embark on a new Dark Eldar project for me! The Wych Cult of Red Death.

Considering that I've done Kabal Forces (http://www.thedarkcity.net/t142-dark-eldar-kabal-of-endless-twilight-hellions) and Coven Forces (http://www.thedarkcity.net/t143-haemonculi-coven-models) I figured it was time to make Cult force.

A while back I painted these 2 Razorwing Fighters (http://eyeoferror.blogspot.com/2012/01/deux-razorwings.html) in a red scheme that I was experimenting with. This will be the color scheme for The Cult of Red Death.

This will be the Sigil.

First off in this new Cult Force are a unit of Cyberpunk Wyches. I used spare reaver heads in this simple modification that adds a lot of unique character (and creepiness) to the wyches. I was inspired by fond recollections of Molly Milions (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molly_Millions) when I was converting these lovely shaved headed ladies.

For my Wych Cult of Red Death I wanted to use Lelith Hesperax… but being me there is no way I could use the standard model. I had to make her creepy and wicked....

I wanted the new Hesperax to look like an insane augmented 4-armed Shiva Techno Gladiator. Basically if you are within 12' of her your dead!

Most of the pieces I used were from the base Hesperax finecast kit (I LOVE finecast for conversions like this) with the addition of a Talos Hook arm, some scourge impaler spears and a Reaver helmet. I posed her on Scibor ruins base to match my other DE.

Man she is wicked…. Hands down one of my favorite conversions ever.

I have finally finished 9 Reavers for my Dark Eldar Wych Cult of Red Death.

I airbrushed and handpainted the Figures, Bases and Bikes and OSL Exhausts all separately then put them together in the last step. I replicated the same Paint Scheme I use on my Razorwing Fighters Seen HERE (http://eyeoferror.blogspot.com/2012/01/airbrushing-deux-razorwings-tutorial.html)

Also, earlier this week I posted a tutorial on how I painted the OSL Jet Exhausts HERE (http://eyeoferror.blogspot.com/2013/04/painting-osl-jet-exhausts-for-flying.html)


Overall I'm very pleased with how they came out and I can't wait to field them in my next game!

Absoloutely love the contrast between the red and blue. What a suberb looking Cult that is, very impressive indeed.

I love the way you've added the jet flames to the rear of the bikes. That looks seriously awesome!

What with your Wyches and Power Hungry Monkey's coven there are some seriously great Dark Eldar conversions floating around here these days. Can only echo the comments above about Lilith, very dynamic and well converted. Simply put, I'd love to paint it!

Thanks again everyone for the support. Here's a Beastmaster unit that I've recently started painting but isn't ready yet. In the mean time, some unpainted pics.

For the Beastmaster himself, I modified a standard Hellion figure so he looked like he was wearing a skull mask from a Clawed Fiend. I used a DE banner pole bit for clawed fiend skull and slapped it on a Scourge head.

The Khymerae and Clawed fiend are standard finecast figures posed on Scibor bases The detailing in the musculature and fur is amazing!

The Razorwings were my biggest gripe about the beastmaster figures. Birds? Really…That's it? Well I wanted something more alien, a kin to the creatures from Pitch Black. I smashed up a bunch of Tyranid bits and hope they don't look too Tyranid and more like general flying alien creatures.

I can't wait to paint these guys!

Lucky, great looking Cult so far. Really love the Lilith conversion. She'd be the pride and joy and any Haemonculus worth his salt. Also those Razor Wings are very nice; reminds me A LOT of Pitch Black

This log continues to be great except those razorwings. I feel they look very much like the tyranids you've tried to disguise. Maybe a rethink is in order?

Wow that new Beastmaster head, consider that idea stolen! I love it at that point.
One small detail though, a beastmaster has 1 close combat weapon only, described in the codex rules :p.

Love the razorwings conversions, I also love the GW ones, however these make perfect sence, it's not bad to go some something else.
I'm glad you sticked with the Khymera and clawed fiend, those models are extremely beautiful, GW really did a great job there.

Those wyches with shades look cool, I also used the reaver heads on mine, i thought from the beginning it just made perfect sence.

That Lelith is weird, but makes sence and the conversion isn't bad either. Why not, a robotish Lelith.

The Reavers and Razorwing flyers are awesome, big fan of the light effects, though I would only wish you would ahve gone for slightlier flashier highlights on the red. It's a choice, you went for a little bit less flashy red without the fancy highlights.
