Anyway, back in 2013, I was lucky enough to discover the Confrontation project done by the Spiky Rats (and the subsequent battle report posted on Opus Maius) and I was inspired by the sheer majesty and madness of the whole endeavour. I started to design my own spyrer warband because I really didn't like the originals as they were far too colourful and manga-esque to deserve the flavour fluff of feared daemons stalking the shadows of the underhive.
I pulled inspiration from the bio-suits that the Engineers wear in Prometheus and decided to go Gigeresque with my design. The first one I started with was the Malcador mostly because it seemed the easiest, especially with the arms from the Dark Eldar Wracks set with the hand scythes. After the Malcador, I set the whole project on the back burner until about a month ago. The Orrus was inspired by John Blanche's illustration and the Jakara went through one design remake before I was happy. The Yeld, however, was the trickiest to nail down and I'm still not sure it's right, I think the wings are a little too organic looking and I may change them before painting.
