    I wasn't even close to first place in the Venom Competition, but I think I ended up in second place as usual...

    Here are my take on the Razorwing Flocks, using leaves from the fantasy trees as a base.

    Quickly painted to a tournament, so they might get redone some time.

    Excellent stuff, the best Venoms I've seen so far. Did you use an airbrush to paint them?

    I like those swarms, they're looking quite cool. I think they could look more "3D", some higher and some lower, so they look a little less organized.

    Well stated. Your dedication shines through. Agree with posters above - Best Venoms I've seen on the interwebz. Bravo. Those foolios at BoLS just don't know.

    The leg is from an old Blood Bowl Elf (see blurry background below)
    It's actually a lot smaller than ordinary legs, but the foot is most definitely to large, which has been fixed now.

    Yes it is!


    I think I'll base all blood brides on daemonettes.
    Here is a start.







    I've mixed in corsair legs in all my test models and experimented with face masks.
    Haven't decided yet if all models must have a mask or not.

    I have finished four bloodbrodes based on wyches and the upper body of daemonettes.
    The legs with boots are from the Dark Elf Corsairs.
    Modelled masks are made by producing a stamp of the Eldar Harlequins' masks.







    I'll have to take better pictures after spraying them white, as I'm having difficulty taking good pictures as it is.

    It's a clever idea to use the daemonette torsos, though I'm not sure they fully work in all of those examples - but perhaps the slightly contorted postures were the look you were going for as they are manic, alien gladiators afterall.

    I really like the mohawk and masks - can imagine some cool paintjobs on them.

    @Gresil
    I suppose you meen the girl with the net.
    She is supposed to be throwing it, using her whole upper body.
    Don't know if I actually nailed the pose though.

    @Rabid Bunny 666
    I made imprints in greystuff of the regular harlequins masks and then stamped masks of greystuff on the plastic dark eldar and daemonette heads.
    Not very difficult, but the results vary a lot, so I have to redo many aswell.

    I think they came very nicely, not sure if they scream harliquin outright. But definitely do scream lithe killers.

    Fantastic Venom conversion. Very original idea, great execution and stunning paint job.
    I always wanted to make a full harlequin army. I wish you luck with your project. If you keep the venom level on the whole army, it will be breath taking force.

    Keep up the great work
