…Like a harpy scorned.
Constant assault, chaos and confusion, death from all sides. This is what the beastmen army excel at and what they need to exploit in order to succeed.
The hooved gors only go so far. Ambush is a risky maneuver, fast beasts; like the razorgors take two rounds to get to their targets, and the Beastmen need the enemy war-machines to be neutralized. We need a reliable form of ‘war-machine hunting’.
That’s where the harpies come in. Harpies can fly, upgrade to be ‘scouts’ (start even further ahead than the rest of the army), skirmish and have two attacks. With this much mobility and utility, the harpies can help put reliable and consistent pressure on war-machines and ‘escort’ fleeing enemies off the field of battle.
Sadly, the GW harpies are very old (made in 1989?) and very expensive.
The solution? Conversion.
I took a unit of ‘bloodletter’ demons and wings from “Meltdown/ Dragon’s Den” bits bin to make myself some unique harpies.
The wings are three coats of different reds, each applied with dry brushing over the other for a shaded feel.
