The basic Dark Reaper miniatures are good, but the standard skull-shaped helmets look a bit silly and there are only two poses for the standard squad members, which is a bit limited. To that end I converted two of the four to produce some new poses and the skull details on the helmets were filled in.

date: 2012-present (work-in-progress)
components: Dark Reapers, Green Stuff, brass rod

5. A second Dark Reaper conversion. The torso was removed from his legs, repositioned, pinned and then glued in place. Green Stuff was used to fill in the resulting gap.

7. A close-up of the converted Dark Reaper helmet. I'm very pleased with how the faceplate looks - the removal of the goofy skull design make the helmet look a lot more like regular Eldar designs.
