Haemoxyte Conversion: A new unit for Haemonculus Covens

Welp. The new Dark Eldar/Drukhari codex finally dropped. I picked it up at release, and didn't expect too much new, assuming it would be a simple update for 9th edition. 

But then it hit me with a surprise! A new unit type for my other hobby love, Haemonculus Covens. 

This new unit, the Haemoxytes, are meant to represent elite Wracks, and they were the perfect excuse to dust off my drukhari and convert up a model to represent it.

Enter the dream combination of Delaque gangers from Necromunda, with Kaoric Acolytes from AoS, with a little Idoneth Namarti Reavers/Thralls.
And this Haemoxyte conversion is only the beginning. I've already started noodling on my next member of the squad, inspired by this horrific sketch from our lord and saviour, Jestopher of Goodwin:
Should be gross/fun :)

And if you wanted to hear my initial thoughts on the new codex, here's my quick review of it alongside the Liber Xenologis book from Black Library:
