I have never had any desire to collect Eldar, and nor do I still however the Wraithknight model is just amazing and after seeing it at my FLGS I knew I had to own one. As it’s not part of an army and just a one off purchase for me I wanted to do something special with it. Originally I thought about making a diorama with it but then I had the brainwave of making a harlequin style one. I began by getting one of the old harlequin jetbike fronts with the face on it and creating a mold with Instant Mold. I then used green stuff to create the face and wrap it around the head. Some GS work was still required but the basic shape was still there.
I wanted to create a more dynamic pose which wasn’t too difficult with this model. His right leg was cut in half in the shin with the lower part of the leg switched around in order to be able to pose the leg bent in this way. I thought a sword would fit in more with the harlequin theme. The pose below is only blu tacked into place as I wish to paint him in different stages.
The feedback I have received so far from Facebook suggests he needs ribbons and tabards etc. which I will certainly add to him. Most of which may be created separately and added on after he’s painted.
