|My collection of bits for conversions on the jetbikes|
I've just placed the order for my final set of bitz for Saim Hann force. You might be asking yourself why would I need these bitz? Don't the Eldar jetbikes come with everything you would need already?
Well, the answer is yes, but I don't just want an ordinary army, I don't want to just say "these jetbikes are counting as my seer council"; so I've searched the internet and come up with some ideas.
As you can probably see in the picture, there are a variety of parts, so far I've got:
- Guardian heads
- Dire Avenger heads (and an Exarch one)
- Eldar swords and spears
- Dire Avenger torsos
- I've also got some Guardian torsos on the way
|The current GW jetbike model|
Firstly, I don't really like the torsos on the Guardian jetbikes, they just don't seem to look right, so I plan to swap them all out with Guardian torsos and also replacing their tall heads for standard Guardian heads. I think this will give them a more uniform theme within the current eldar models.
Now, I've got some Dire Avenger heads, torsos and weapons; they are for the plastic Seer council conversions. I took inspiration form this image I found on Dakka Dakka
As you can see, it gives them a more distinctive look and will easily separate them from the rest of the force. They will also be painted with a higher black content than the other standard guardian jetbikes. I plan to use the Exarch gear for the Farseer and give him a reversed paint scheme (swap the places of red and black around).
Well, there you have it! I've listed all my conversion ideas (so far!) and I should have a test model (a warlock on bike to be exact) completed by the end of the week so you can expect that soon.
Stay tuned for more updates...
