More DE HQs

Not started painting any of them yet, but I've been assembling Dark Eldar for ages and ages, it seems!
Anyway, most are standard so I won't bore you with pictures, but I have been messing with HQs.

Here's my first. She was originally meant to be an Archon, but she came out looking a lot more...nude than I was imagining to begin with. I think she'll make a pretty good succubus though.

I decided I needed an actual Archon still. At the moment she's just blu-tacked together so I can see how the pose etc looks. Thoughts? Not sure about her right arm either. Maybe a blast pistol?

I'd have her sight down the length of the blade with the right arm holding a gun in the typical upright position as provided by the kit.

This would give her a menacing top down pose when put against other models to that would broadcast an "I'm coming for you!" vibe

Hmmm, that's a pretty good idea, thanks!
It changes the dynamic of the figure and gets her a bit further away from "random DE hanging off the side of the raider" territory too.
I'll have a play and see what works.

I like the pose, if you want to get crazy maybe an extended arm holding a crystal skull or other form of soul trap for the right arm. I wanted to do the same but aside from sculpting it the only hand I could find holding a skull was on a necromancer from GW, who knows how chunky the hand is too. But yeah maybe an extended soul trap if you swing that way :)

Think I'll stick with a weapon of some sort, however that is a good idea. You could steal one of the hands from the Raider pilot, cut it off and turn it over, and place a skull in there.
