Two creepy men and a weird headed lady - The Coven
She'll sit in the back field, giving a pain token to any warrior squads she sits with. She may also instakill any model with her sniper rifle. Granted, there's like a 5% chance or something equally measley.
I must say, I really enjoyed painting all these models. They just ooze character, one of the best parts of the original Dark Eldar line. I honestly hope if they ever resculpt the haemonculi, they don't make them too crazy and too far from these guys. I'm sad they never made more variations.
And here are a couple of my covens creations - two wracks
RAWR! I've used the fantasy flagellants as a base, and used the old warrior heads - they give a pretty brutal, mask like appearance, almost a pennance mask. I've tried to make the cuts in their robes look freshly bleeding, to represent their heightened toughness and carelessness in the face of pain (granted by their gnarly gnarlskin). I've given them assorted blades for hands to make them extra nasty looking. I try and get a green theme on all my coven units to link them all, and I've also used neat astronomicon grey for their skin - the paler, almost white hue separates them from the pale-but-still-living warriors.
On a related note, I'm very pleased they arn't releasing metal wracks now. I'm a strong believer of GW not spoon feeding gamers. I like to see armies and units that are created from conversions. Plus, my wracks are plastic, and a squad of ten is much cheaper and look very striking than 10 models in a couple of separate poses.
So, that's all for now. Please drop by again - remember to follow and comment if you like!
