Hexwraith conversions

Some months ago, I converted a unit of Hexwraith because the original GW unit doesn’t fit the Nighthaunt aesthetic anymore. I designed some bits in ZBrush and bought three boxes of push-fit Dreadblade Harrows. Surprisingly, the cost for this is on the same level as a modern cavalry unit and you get one spare model that you can use for its original purpose.

The paint job is not the best. And I have polished the bits since then. I have incorporated arms, chains and skulls and added a plate for the helmet to make it easier to attach it. So the images at the end of the post do not show the current bits. The render images show the downloadable bits.

Conversion instructions:

Manual
  • Right arm: cut at the elbow or where the arm leaves the cloak.
  • Left arm: cut where the arm leaves the cloak.
  • Head: (optional) remove the top of the head so that the head lantern thingy fits a little bit better
  • See the picture above to see where each piece goes. For both base models there are two variants with left-handed lantern and right-handed scythe. And one additional variant with right-handed scythe and left-handed lantern.
  • When you have found a suitable pose:
  • Drill 0.7 mm diameter holes into the cloak/arm pieces and attach the pieces with super glue and a piece of wire
  • Coat the contact area with additional super glue and attach a little bit of green stuff right into the glue (don’t use your fingers for this obviously). This increases the stability and cleans up the area at the same time.
  • Glue the helmet to the head. It looks better if you remove the top of the hood.

I would be super delighted if you post pictures of your conversions. And I am always open for feedback.

Woundmarker

Skull1

Keeping tracks of one’s wounds is important business. Common practice is to use a good old D10, preferably in bloody red. But some heroes do not have a need for a full D10 – a D6 might be more apropriate. And for some warmachines and gods of the battlefield, nothing smaller than a D20 would do.

Some players use small trays for the wound dice, to avoid accidently tipping them over in the heat of the battle. While this is servivable, I thought that I can bring some additional flair to this practical solution.

Eldar1

I have created sockets that work for all the dice types at once. So you don’t have to bring trays for each of the dice types. Just slot the right size into it.

Astartes2

For an extra portion of flavour, besides the generic skull marker, there are markers for three well established factions: Adeptus Astartes, Eldar and Chaos.

Chaos Large2

Since space is a precious commodity in between the tight ranks of the clashing armies, I tried to keep the markers as small as possible. As a result. the Chaos one has two versions: one with the full eight-pointed star and one with a smaller footprint.

Chaos Small2 1

Have fun with it. I would love to see some pictures of painted markers or just some in use next to your armies. You can find me one Blue Sky or Reddit or as Panthemonium on Discord. I have some Blue Sky codes if you haven’t got access yet.

The files are .obj. The Eldar and Space Marines ones can be printed without a problem on a FDM printer, for the other ones I recommend a SLA printer.
