@Sangus Bane - the cloak is from the Fantasy Dark Elf Corsairs kit.
@Jacobite - Yes, Iyanden do rely heavily on wraithguard etc, but there are some corsairs that stemmed from Iyanden, take Prince Yriel for example, he is High Admiral of the Iyanden Fleet and also High Admiral of the Eldrich Raiders Corsair Fleet. I am essentially using that as a theme, allowing me to incorporate some cool wraith units with guardians etc that look a bit more intriguing than the usual. The cloaks are going to be painted a turquoisy blue.
Nearly finished assembling 2 units of guardians. I haven't made the last two from each squad as I am not sure if I am going to include weapon platforms or proxy these guys as dire avengers, will see when I get a good look at the new codex.
I understand that guardians don't have exarchs etc but I wanted each squad to have some form of leader so have given them close combat weapons from the dark elf corsair kit.
Converted Eldar Corsair Squad 1:
All have cloaks form the dark elf corsair kit, was quite a fiddle getting them to fit, but you can't really see any mess due to the positioning of the arms etc. The squad leader has a sword from the dark elf corsairs kit as well, had to do a bit of a weapon swap as all the sword arms are right arms, the pieces are pretty flimsy even with pinning so I am going to have to be pretty careful with that model.
Converted Eldar Corsair Squad 2:
The back of the torsos are form the Eldar Guardian Kit. The legs and the front of the torsos are from the dark elf corsair kit. The torso pieces really don't fit together nicely; I had to do a fair bit of greenstuff work to get the backs looking acceptable, but I think they turned out reasonably nicely in the end. I've put a pic in of the bacl of one of the guardians so you get an idea of what was involved.
And last but not least, the first 4 models of my seer council. I have to say, I love painting finecast models, the detail is fantastic, but the amount of tidying up they need and the fact that so often, really important parts of the model have rather bad imperfections just gets on ma goat! i.e. I really hope my farseers face doesn't look totally crap when I finish painting it, was missing like the whole left side.......
Just waiting on some army painter sprays before I get going with the painting.
So, C & C please! What do people think?
