Originally, these minis were Castigators from the Soul Wars set. There was only 3. So, not only they don’t hit the minimum squad size, I don’t like how they play. Looking through the book, I found I like how the Vanguard-Raptors seem to play. I like the number of shots the Hurricane Crossbows have, in particular.

All I needed were the fronts of hurricane crossbows (plus my custom wolf ornaments) to make this conversion.

I cut off the crossbow limbs, set aside, and flattened down the front. Glue the hurricane crossbow bit to the flattened front. The limbs have ornamentation on the base and tip. I cut those off and glue them to the top and bottom of the crossbow, just behind the front bit. This will make it look like scales of some sort, just nice detailing to make the weapon for interesting. Any gaps should be filled with greenstuff or the like.

The squad leader is holding a bolt for the greatbow. But since she no longer has a great bow I needed to think of something else. I couldn’t think of anything to replace it with, so I added some Stormcast helmet halos to make it some kind of flare/torch/lamp thing.

They only need 3 models to a squad, so we will see if I want to make more of them.

A small batch of Sequitors, most of them with the big hammers.

I got more bits to make 4 more Sequitors with the big hammers so my squads are round off to 4 or 5 minimum-sized squads.

Finished the first half of my Phoenix Guard unit. They are part of the elite forces of my army. They keep their uniforms particularly clean and their armour polished.

Their feathered helmets and magic halberds will make them easier to see since they are just fancy Freeguild Guard. I wanted to go for those shard glass or shard weapons that you’d find in Warhammer Underworlds.

The first of my Stormcast Eternals are now done. Custom bases, helmets, motifs, and hammerhead. With all those fancy bits, I came up with a name for my Stormhost too, Ulric’s Retribution.

The story is my Stormcast are the men and women who fought in the fall of Middenheim and the Old World, true heroes one and all. They were reborn on the anvil with the unique quirk of still worshiping Ulric over Sigmar. They were put together in a Stormhost called Ulric’s Retribution and now fight with the Middenheim Historical Association (Cities of Sigmar Freeguild, name still WIP).

I made several unique helmets and bases that I will be using on all my Stormcast. I also made a hammer head that I will be using to replace all the 2-handed hammers that will be available. I’m most happy with that one, it looks great.

The colour scheme is an alternate version of the Hallowed Knights scheme, adding a bit more black, gold, and off-white to get it closer to my original Middenheim colour scheme.
