I'm considering my first conversion/kit-bash project. Here's a unit I came up with:
Akhelian Queen - Isharann Tidecaster on Kharibdyss
Fly (according to its description, the Kharibdyss is an deep sea creature, so as all other Idoneth mounts, it should be able to "fly")
Feast of Bones
(removed one ability that is related to the handlers)
Spirit Guardians - I think it should be nerfed a bit - First save roll is an automatic success (instead of negating the first wound)
The Wide Ethersea
Weapon table (weapons from both basic models, excluding the handler's weapons):
My plan is to build the Kharibdyss without its handlers, and then add some kind of saddle or howdah, with the Tidecaster standing on it.
What do you think?
For balance purposes, what do you think is the estimated point value for such a model/unit?
(as a side note, I think of trying to fit the War Hydra heads from this kit as alternative heads for eels, but that's a different project)
