"I come to dance the Dance of Death."
I've wanted to do a Dark Eldar Themed Harlequin unit for sometime now but wanted to do something unique and different than what I've seen before. I affectionately call them "Darlequins"
The coolest conversions I've seen in recent times were from Speedfreak's Harlequin Macabre army and taking a note right out of his book I went onto convert my own Harlequin characters.
Instead of a traditional jester feel for everyone, I decided to go the Masquerade/Carnival route and create characters based around some traditional terran ones. The Death Jester is the leader cause we're all united in death. The Shadowseer represents Wisdom and War is the Troupe Leader.
Honestly I can't even begin to tell all the pieces that went into them. Wyche, Hellion, Scourge and Kabal pieces were mixed with Empire, Bretonnian, Dark Elf, High Elf, Vampire Counts and Even Tomb King Bits!
The Whole Troupe
The Plague Doctor
The Low Born
Now the real question... how to begin painting them?
