Eldar Wraith'crons

I got some of my Wraith-construct Eldar finished. I should mention that these are "Count as" Necrons, but their backstory is an all Wraith-construct Eldar Craftworld.

The Eldar Craftworld Nekrauni was once full of talented Psykers almost to rival Ulthwe. Unfortunatley, a psychic virus ravaged their world, turning even those Eldar without extraordinary abilities deathly ill. Their only recourse was to construct many Wraithbone bodies for the survivors to enhabit, as the Wraithbone itself seemed immune to the virus.

Delving deeper into Wraith technology then sensible Eldar would dare, they made enough Ghost Warrior bodies and various Wraith drones to defend their Craftworld in its weaked state.

The virus not only took their bodies and damaged their minds, but ensured that no other Eldar would dare come near them, for fear of infection.

Whole army:

Wraith Overlords on Wraith chariots:

'counts as' Necron Overlord w/ Warscythe, Sempiternal Weave & Mind Shackle Scarabs. I felt that a Wraithlord and a 40mm base would fairly well represent an Overlord. The Command Barges are modified Vypers w/ magnetized Guass cannons and Quantuam Shielding (the dispertion shields).

Wraith Guard Court:

'counts as' Crypteks and a Lord (the one with the crest).

Ghost Warriors:

'counts as" Immortals. Simple converted Warriors with greensuff shoulder, knees and heads. I also used Dark Eldar splinter rifle barrels on their guns.

Night Scythes:

These are Night Spinner turrents with lots of extras put on them. I don't feel the need to rename them since Eldar have 'Night Spinners' & 'Night Wing' flyers.

Wraith Destroyer Lord with body guard:

'counts as' Destroyer Lord and Canoptek Wraiths. The lord took a bit to convert, but I am pleased with the outcome. The new Wraith models are so cool, I didn't feel like converting anything on them.

Wraiths Drone Sentries:

'counts as' Wraiths. I converted these out of Preatorian torso back halves and beads on a wire for their tails.

Wraith Spyders & Wraith Drones:

'counts as' Canoptek Spyders & Scarabs. I converted these Spyders before I had the Wraith-construct idea, but it worked out since I used Eldar and DE Talos bitz to make it. The legs are made from long beads.

Annihilation Barges:

The outside 2 are the same as the Command Barges. The center one is made the same as my Night Scythes, just with smaller 'wings'.
