Recently I was gifted with that glorious nerdy collecting moment of "The Find". That classic antique niche thing that you recognize and snag because you know what it is and its cool for you.

For me that was a lot of....roughly 35 rogue trader era Harlequins, including five of the super kickass pewter bike masks.

The only problem was these things were MANGLED. Nearly every model was missing at least one limb, if not beheaded, bisected, or otherwise maimed.

Using a mixture of spare bits, greenstuff, and a little 3d modeling and printing (most of the shuriken pistols, for whatever reason the original owner 28 years ago really hated the pistols) I have restored my lovely circus to life. Heres some of the pics of the models as they are now!

"Got you, Yugi! Your Rubric Marines can't fall back because I have declared the tertiary kaptaris ka'tah stance two, after the secondary dacatarai ka'tah last turn!"

"So you think, Kaiba! I declared my Thousand Sons the cult of Duplicity, which means all my psykers have access to the Sorcerous Facade power! Furthermore I will spend 8 Cabal Points to invoke Cabbalistic Focus, causing the rubrics to appear behind your custodes! The Vengeance for the Wronged and Sorcerous Fullisade stratagems along with the Malefic Maelstrom infernal pact evoked earlier in the command phase allows me to double their firepower, letting me wound on 2s and 3s!"

"you think it is you who has gotten me, yugi, but it is I who have gotten you! I declare the ever-vigilant stratagem to attack your rubrics with my custodes' ranged weapons, which with the new codex are now DAMAGE 2!!"

"...which leads you straight into my trap, Kaiba, you see I now declare the stratagem Implacable Automata, reducing all damage from your attacks by 1 and triggering my All is Dust special rule!"

Your rescue shelter for mistreated Harlequines is a noble and inspiring project. Great work so far. Looking forward to seeing more.

Echoing theCrowe on this one, great work on fixing up some 'Quins, the pieces you fixed up blend pretty seamlessly with the sculpts.
