The latest Striking Scorpion models are a vast improvement over the previous range. One Exarch was constructed in a standard manner with a Biting Blade. The second Exarch was extensively converted to arm him with 'chainsabres' - a weapon option described in the Codex but not available as an officially-released miniature. The third Exarch is a woman, armed with the Scorpion's Claw and the fourth Exarch is armed with the standard Striking Scorpion weaponry, so that every Codex wargear option is represented by a miniature.

date: 2008-present (work-in-progress)
components: 4x Striking Scorpion Exarchs, brass rod, green stuff, cork, Eldrad Ulthran left arm, Autarch shuriken pistol arm, Autarch Scorpion Chainsword arm

15. This conversion uses arms from one of the Autarch kits to give me the option of fielding an Exarch without wargear upgrades. The pose works really nicely and is an interesting change from the more aggressive poses of the other models. This Exarch is also wielding his weapons in the opposite hands to the rest of the squad, which further sets the model apart from the standard squad members.
