Keeper of Secrets

Looking to get a Slaneesh Army up and going. Like many players I don't like the KoS model. Have been looking for alternatives to use in "its" place but have been mindful of model size.

How tall is the Keeper's model? Ideally I want something of similar height so I don't feel I'm trying to look over things on a battlefield (I'm a fan of customizing - not cheating).


Also am considering using the Necron 'Deciever' as a possible alternative (with a bit of custom work). How tall are those?

did a quick scale of the GW keeper of secrets model based on a picture of the model on a 3" base. It looks to be between 3.6" to 3.7" from hooves to horns. Can anyone confirm with the real model?

EDIT: What was I thinking? No one would have bought that p.o.s model...

You don't like the model?

I think the Keeper of Secrets looks pretty sweet when well painted.







Whats not to like about that?

it is roughly that size but theres quite a lot of variance allowed, scenic base makes one another inch taller! and it is a nice model, especially compared to the GUO but that purplr scheme is putrid

buy the FW one. Towers over everything, has hair tendrils that are 8" long and 1/8" thick at the widest... shame really, impossible to transport but absolutely beautiful.

90% of people think they are above average.

Guys! Guys! While I appreciate the whole "KoS figure is awesome" - the question comes back to again, what is the HEIGHT of the model.

Sounds like I may need be specific. What is its height, from toe to head, basic standing (no crouching etc...)?

Any model 3.5"-4" would be the right range
