I finally got a bit of time to do some work on converting up the Ymgarls and I decided I wanted to make them look different than the regular stealers but not go completely wacky on the conversions (so more of a subtle change). I have looked at the drawings for the Ymgarls and based my slight conversion off of that:
So, looking at the picture I knew I would need the feeder tenticle head (obviously) and the middle claw on their rending claw hands are also elongated. So below is what you will need to do this conversion:
The main thing to change the overall profile of the stealer other then the head are the rending clawed hands. So, for all of mine I cut the middle claw out and replaced it with talon from the Hormagaunt Scything Talons:
Here is what it looks like when you throw all the pieces together:
Next up: Is going to be about how I base this army and basing in general and what it can do for the overall feel for your army. After that I will be expanding on the painting tutorial I did a year or two ago and I will go more in depth on which colours I used for this army and the actual technique of how to get the "carapace" for this army.
