Arco-Flagellants & Father Repentias DIY

Update today with pictures (About time huh?), well I have been on a 40K kick lately and have busted out my Sisters of Battle and have been wanting to expand the army (currently its at 1500 points painted). Also with Rob and I planning on doing some =][= Inquisitor it was a fine time to play the Ecclesiarchy finest Daughters of the Emperor. So when my buddy Lonnie went on his shopping spree, I picked up a few boxes that I have had my eye on.

You see I have not been a big fan of the GW sculpted Arco-Flagellants or the Sisters of Repentias, so when the ghouls came out for the WHFB line, I thought, Hmm I could do a Arco unit. The GW sculpts just did nothing for me, so I dove into both boxes and my bitz box to come up with the first to Arco-Flagellants. These are early WIP and the pictures show I need to remove a few more mold lines before they are ready for paint. So here are the first two of six that I am building. The first one uses bitz from the Skeleton box as well as the Flagellants & Ghouls box, throw in some guitar wire and a few 40k bitz and you have a custom Arco.

The second Arco has the same bitz but with a power claw sort of thing made from the skeleton box.

I also never liked the S&M look of the Sisters Repentias, so I used the Flagellants from the WHFB line, just add a few chain swords and your set. I see the Father Repentias as captives of the Ecclesiarchy that are committed to becoming sinless by the act of dying for the Emperor. I will be doing up a Sob with a Neural whip in a few days. These guys are pretty much stock figures with Chain Swords added to them.

So there you have it, some of the latest things on the old work bench...

"Oh WOW!" That's what slipped out of my mouth when I scrolled down and saw your first Arco-flagellant!

Fantastic idea, fantastic use of parts, fantastic all round. Nice one mate!

@ Dave, thanks man, but the inspiration came from your creepy little guys that you did. I figured the ghouls were a perfect starting point. Glad you like them.

@ Tom, thanks man I will sure try...

Don't know how you do it... even at this stage it looks like they should be all part of one kit. Looking forward to the final product.
