Sweet models, but what are they supposed to be PLAYED as? (or are they just some random models for the heck of it?)


On another note, it has nothing to do with the parts shown on the first post!

You have to love when that happens. :D

I've always wanted to get dryads, but I had always envisioned them more at home in Daemons army. This is a nice twist, and you could pretty much call them whatever you wanted.

Great conversion Tael!

Great work. I've always loved the Dryad models, and have always wanted to find a way to bring them into 40k with style. It appears you have beat me to the punch, with these sleek, interesting auxillaries that I have the compelling urge to imitate. Not to mention the very intriguing backstory, well done Fio'O! :) I will be even more interested to see how you paint them. Will you be going for a traditional tree-esqe scheme or attempting to mimic a skin hue?

Hi All,

Thanks for the responses ./bow :D

Yes indeed these are not comprised of the pieces I showed in the first post - I am a tricksey fio. :P

Game wise I could happily replace my gue'vesa with these in a pinch, but I feel to do them justice - something akin to Necrons/Eldar - I'll have to peruse some unit rules. I'm going to work through a few concept ideas, so bear with me.

@Chillrend - I'm aiming to paint something different, elemental and possibly energetic - looking about for inspiration presently.

Lastly, certainly I appreciate the titles bandied my way, however ATT has an array of brilliant modellers; Xeones, Vet Sgt, Warhound, Li'Now, Phineos and pretty much anyone on
[Model Guides & Tutorials] Official ATT Modelling Resource. Certainly, there is good company to be found in modelling on our community forum. We're not wanting for inspiration and ideas that's for sure!

Thanks all, more shortly :)

now that sounds interesting, a little bit like the Unity Crystals from stargate, even though those where immobile ... and in that case they would most probably would inhabit one of Vet Sgt's Crystal-Jungles.

This is very inspiring.

These look interesting. Will you be covering a small tutorial later on when your done with your conversion and perhaps painting?

Will do Vash, they're not as straightforward as it appears - a bit of cutting and fitting to be done. The fingers will be removed and re-sculpted also.

Presently working on something else whilst I await extra parts now that I know the idea works. :)

Thats what I suspected. They look "simple" but there usually is more to it than meets the eye. A well executed conversion will make the model it self look like nothing hard was done.

Your alien looks very nice, although, at first I didn't liked the hands. But … maybe if you bend the fingers so as if they were grown together with the weapon? Maybe you also can connect the thumb or index finger (or whatever) with the little ripped piece on top of the gun? This way it would act as a trigger. Just my two cents.

Great work and a sweet addition to the growing Empire ;)
Do you plan to do even more Vesas?

This is almost word for word what I intend to do with a couple of variations ;)

For example, this was me trialling the Naga idea back in the day :

which evolved into this :

Essentially, not everything I do is a finished idea - it's just a progression - hence the new work log ;)
