MORE Reavers

Four more weeks to the Strange Bedfellows Team Tournament!

Yesterday I finished up six more Drukhari Reavers!

And that finishes off the first massive, full-sized murder pack of TWELVE!


I have nine more Reavers to do at some point. I'm wondering about doing them in different colours - so they could be from a different gang and could be used as rivals in Gangs of Commorragh (which I have a couple copies of!)

I'm already on to the Hellions! My hope is that I will crank through all twenty in the next week and then the last three weeks I'll just have ten Wyches to do each week (and one Succubus!).

Looking over this force of Drukhari, there is a total of 93 Power Level (and just shy of 1900 points). I'm thinking once I've done the stuff we have, I'll have to convince Amanda to get herself a Ravager to give the force just a bit more hard-hitting, anti-armour capability - which will also bring the force to a nice even 100 Power Level (and just over 2000 points) - and be fieldable as three detachments.

Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:



(well... all the ones I'm going to paint for the upcoming tournament)

(Actually I'll probably do them in batches of 10... so it might be the first batch of 10 in a couple days and then another batch of 10 after that... probably next weekend)


  1. Nice work! The twelve together look fantastic!
    Best Iain

    1. Thanks! Hope they work well as a unit together!

  2. Those are quite striking! (and I wouldn't want to be struck by them)

    1. Cheers! the "blade vanes" do look pretty brutal!

  3. Those look great!

    I know you have plenty of other things to paint, but now I really want to see what you would do with a different scheme for the opposing group of reavers. (maybe blue bike and black suit?)

    1. I'm not sure just yet.

      A lot of these came from the board game Gangs of Commorragh - one of those board games that used regular GW figures that was waaaaaay cheaper than actually buying the miniatures separately so most people end up just buying them for the miniatures... The guy we bought these off of had bought three of those boxes - two of them he gave to us with the shrinkwrap still on. Anyway, the game came with a rulebook which has loads of pictures of them done in all sorts of wildly different colours (different from the standard black with green edge-highlighting that ALL the drukhari on the GW website are painted in) and that got me thinking that maybe for the next unit I could do them in a different colour - so they'd look like they were from a different gang/cult. That way we could actually try playing Gangs of Commorragh some time - and have different gangs.

      Also the full Drukhari force will likely be fielded in at least three different detachments - two Wych Cult and one Kabbalite - and I was starting to think maybe the second Wych Cult detachment could be from an entirely different Cult - and thus be all in different colours than I am currently painting...? The primary one will be the Crimson Wave Wych Cult (using the Cult of Red Grief rules), but we could make up a different one and use one of the other Wych Cult's rules.
