Two Custom Slayers and a Reaper

More Cryx Helljack kits. Need them for my 50-point Mortenebra tier list. to make your 5th and 6th Slayers a little different from the others in your collection...

In this photo, the two new Slayers flank the Reaper model in the center. These are assembled, and as you can see, I've added on some customizations to keep things fresh. The Slayer on the left gets some Texas longhorns, and I glued skulls over the fist spikes. I also removed one of his tusks and drilled a hole where the tusk was lost. The one on the right also got a pair of Stegadon horns (or at least that's what I think they are), and some model razor wire wrapped around his hands. His head was swapped for a Menoth Templar head (oh, those Cryx just don't care where their parts come from!). The Reaper is stock.

OK, no the models have been primed and sprayed a few shades of grey-green. You might be able to see that I also put a few bits into the bases for more visual interest.

And there they are finished up. Used the rust and dust again to stay in theme with the rest of my Cryx forces. The more you do this, the faster it goes.

I got the idea for the skulls on the fist spikes from the Deathjack artwork and model.

The razor wire on this slayer came from Army Painter.

My first Reaper.

So, I played the Morenebra tier list at the local steamroller tournament yesterday and went 2-1 for 6th place. My one loss was against another Cryx army...and honestly, I would have been much better of switching over to my alternate eSkarre list. This Mortenebra list does best against lists with living models...the eDenny list I faced was all undead/incorporeal. Anyway, it was a fun day and it was good to see the familiar tourney faces up at Thunderground. Thanks to Roy Kim for putting on another fine event.

'Til next time.
