Dark Eldar Wyches - Christmas uppdate - ØRNULVS DECEMBER PROJECT # 2

Christmas greetings!

My progress over the last couple of weeks have not been as planned due to an increase in my work load (damn).

However I have finished to complete my 3 units of Wyches. Having used a lot of the parts from my three boxes when building my Kabalite Trueborn, it was a small “undertaking” to make due with the left over from both the Kabalite Warrior sprues and Wyches sprues.

This is how they turned out:



Wishing you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year!

First of all, thanks for al the positive feedback guys!

After having built all the infantry models in my original “Kabalite heavy fleet list”, I realised that I also wanted to explore the close combat units (as Jørn commented). I have therefore decided to build two types of warriors regarded as Dark Eldars “close combat specialists”.

First out – 30 Wyches. I thought I should post some “in progress pictures”. This is the first squad. I build some extra models so I can field them in units of 5 – 9.

I think the models hava a great posture and they have lots of detail. The only problem I had was their legs; the models all lean forward making it difficult to “pin them to the slate”. I therefore decided to use the original design with the “cross bar”, attaching slate on each side. I think it worked out ok.

I will post more pictures as soon as the rest is built.

PS! Jørn – heeeelp, I need more slate… ;)

  1. Gotcha covered, old boy!

    I've got the rest of the rooftile slate that was lying around at Bergseng the last time I was up there, so I should have enough lying in the garage to satisify even your needs...
