The Desert Wraiths were the starting point for these models. I have always thought of the Necrons as 40Ks version of the Tomb Kings, so with this in mind I wanted to make something using a Night Bringer model, which I have always liked.
Adding wings from the Vargheists seemed to bring it to life and add real movement to the model. It looked as though it was swirling out of the sand or summoning a sand storm. To try to create moving sand I used thin wire and coiled it loosely around the model. Then I coated it in glue and poured sand onto it, adding more in some places, I also added sand to the robes to try to give the impression the Wraith was coming from out of the sand.
I enjoyed making this model so four more followed including a Banshee version of the Wraiths.
Probably the models with the least conversions were the two Tomb Guards. I swapped the heads from the Dark Eldar Mandrake bodies and some arm and weapon swaps. Simple, but I am really pleased with how they turned out.
I had to have a go at Nagash. I hated the old model, and love the new one, but found it too big for my taste, so I based mine on that figure but used the Deceiver model as the base and added parts from the Mortarchs.
Some conversion work on Neferata: added some hair from the Witch Elves sprue. The other priestess is a combination of a Brettonian damsel/sorceress and the cloak from Manfred von Carnstein.
I will be adding more models to this project, including more Mandrakes/Tomb Guard. It is however taking second place to my Norse army and offers a welcome break to dip into when i have had enough of snow!
