Coven Wyches Conversions - Nurses
What's more, I'm not a fan of just slapping a tentacle or a atrophied talos arm on something and calling it a coven unit. For that reason, I still think I could have done better with the following unit of wyches. However, I'm not a huge fan of Wyches, particularly now that they've been depowered, so I figured I should just get this unit done with and move on.
Initially I had planned to have them all holding syringes, or to have their splinter pistols converted into something that looked more like a stinger pistol, but I've given up since it'd be a lot of work, and, like I said, Wyches are boring.
Very pretty, since they could be a good place to pick up on the Coven of the Unmarred Narcynogenesis process (not sure I'm spelling my own creation correctly there) fluff of using the secrets of the Haemonculi to make things beautiful.
Beautiful and horrific, that is.
Plus, they do a good job of showing both the horror and beauty in my coven in just one model.
Coven Hunters / Kabalite Warrior stand-ins, they use the wonderfully vial-ed-up Scourge torsoes to give the impression that they are benefiting form the close association with the Coven.
The heads are straight Puppetswar headswaps. The legs and splinter pistol arm are stock. The left arm is an atrophied Talos arm, which I still feel is a cop-out, but I'm not dedicated enough to wyches as a unit to give them my full wracks level of TLC.
What do you folks think?

These look great mr P. I really like the puppets war heads, they work really well and help give that freaky feeling synonymous of the coven units.ReplyDelete
SpellCheck! Thanks for the love, fellow fleshcrafter.ReplyDelete
I think I make it pretty clear here, but this simple head/arm swap for repping Coven Nurses feels very much like mailing it in when compared to the effort I put in to most models. Therefore, I'm happy that a fellow Haemonculus thinks that they work. The heads are, basically, expressionless, but that really works for me with this project because they look so much like porcelain dolls.
Sonetimes a simple head swap can be as effective as a massive conversion job. I think it is smart to save the love for something you really want to go hog wild for and use simple effective methods for more rank and file troops. They still look really good. I love the expressionless faces. Most def porcelain doll like.Delete
You're right, sir. And the reality is that the more I look at the Nurses, simple head swap or not, the more I like them.Delete
Those heads are unsettling...wow they creep me out. Great find and great use of them!ReplyDelete
If they're creeping you out, then they're working, Greg ;)Delete
