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.

Triplet

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.

Aeldari turn sequence reminder

turn-4

I built this reminder because Warhammer 40k is a bit overwhelming at times. I always forget something important. While my friends are always gracious enough to allow me to rewind time a bit, I didn’t want to feel like a fool a couple of times per gaming evening. 

I decided against using a real alphabet instead of the Aeldari runes to keep the aesthetic consistent. So a little bit of Aeldari rune lore is advantageous to use this tray. If you have this covered, simply insert a flag at the appropriate place to remember that you have an important ability to use. There are two slots for every point in the turn sequence.

The flags can either be magnetized or inserted directly into the slots. There are STL files for both options. If you use the magnetized version, there are five additional flags*. 

* I don’t know how useful the runes on the additional reminder flags are. If you have a better idea, please let me know. The sockets are designed for magnets with a 2 mm diameter and 1 mm height.

This turn sequence reminder can be combined with a Strands of Fate tracker and a scoreboard. You can find these here on the blog or on Cults3D.

Aeldari Scoreboard

This scoring board is designed to track victory and command points. For the secondary there are frames where a handwritten piece of paper can be inserted. To track the actual points, there are dice sockets, which can hold either a 12mm D6, standard D10 or standard D20. Finally, for each battle round there is a flag that can be placed to track if a command point was already refunded or not.

  • 1 Primary victory points per Battle round
  • 2 Secondary missions
  • 3 Command points
  • 4 Command point refund flag holder
  • 5 Flag repository

Secondary mission 

The secondary mission tracker consists of dice sockets to track the victory points earned and a label to track which mission was picked. The label frame consists of two parts and a piece of paper, no larger than 9 x 31 mm, can be wedged in between. 

You have either one label per secondary mission available and put the chosen one in place. Or you have three label frames and exchange only the piece of paper every battle. Both of these methods work. You can place magnets into the frame, but this is optional.

Magnets

The flags and secondary label frames have sockets for 2 mm diameter, 1 mm height magnets. An alternative pin flag is included that works without magnet and is inserted directly into the tray. But the magnetized version works better.

Aeldari Strands of Fate tracker

Here we are. The first real download of this blog. I designed this Strands of Fate tracker a while ago to better match the Aeldari aesthetic. There is an area where you can store unused dice and then insert them into the 12mm dice sockets.

Hello world

When the phoenix pantheon burns a last time in defiance. When the final battle is lost. When the ashes of our children grew cold. Only then we will rise again. Only then we will reclaim our heritage. Only then will we receive the prize of rebirth. Oblivion will spark new life. Oblivion will start a new cycle. Oblivion, the great gift.

Rhana Dandra cycle, stanza 23

What’s the mission statement of this blog?

  • Mainly I will talk about my long-time Aeldari project, Panthemonium, an Eldar doomsday cult, who believes the Eldar gods are not yet dead.
  • My AoS side projects will feature too. At this time, these are Nighthaunt and Gloomspite Gitz.
  • Sometimes I will do tutorials. 
  • Occasionally, I will share STLs I created for my projects.
  • Sometimes I will comment on game design and community stuff.
