so, I'm building a wraith heavy Iyanden army and i was playing around with some dark eldar reavers to give my jetbikers the spiritseer look. After building my bikers though i still had some parts left and started messing around with some of the bit in my box and this is the result of my tinkering. The paint looks a bit thick in the photos i am aware but thats because some of the parts were already painted (also because the photos suck). i think i can work with it though and was wondering what you guys think about my jetbike.

That looks pretty cool. Is there some way of re-posing the legs a little though? Its the only bit that looks a little awkward.

Please excuse any spelling errors. I use a tablet frequently and software keyboards are a pain!

I see where you are coming from, but i am afraid theres really no room to reorientate the legs. fortunatly its mostly the angle of the shots here that make it so jaringly visible. On the table top its far less noticeable that the legs are sticking out a bit.

However now i have the problem of what i am gonna run it as. I was going to do a farseer on a jetbike but the model is just to big. And the farseer statline to wimpy to represent a wraithguard on a bike.

I've been considering taking some dark angels allies and running it as a sammael stand in in with a unit of dark angel marines, where i can use my old metal wraith guard as marines since they still come on the smaller bases and are a good head smaller then the normal wraith guard.

Alternatively take a Grey Knight Librarian and some grey knight terminators to use Wraith guard as Wraith Seers and then run the bike as a dread knight with jump pack. then Toughness 6 of a dread knight comes closer to a wraith guard. It has bike like movement and it can use the teleport strike as a turbo boost anology. Its not perfect but its not a terrible plan. If I just put it on a big enough stand on the dread knight base so its 6" tall that should eliminate complaints of modeling for advantage to.

Or the third option, Wraith Knight with a glaive a scatterfshield and shuriken cannon.

what would you guys do?
