New Cryptek Conversion (using WFB Banshee)
So we have all seen the ole' Cryptek converted from a Cairn Wraith at this point. I mean, almost everyone has done one. All my Crypteks are converted from plastic Fantasy Undead characters. Previously I had the old Cairn Wraith standby and two more made from plastic Corpse Cart drivers. For this last one it came down to either the plastic Banshee or the plastic Necromancer. It basically came down me wanting an additional floating Cryptek, as both the Corpse Cart drivers were planted firmly on the ground. Overall this is the little more difficult than the Wraith conversion, which is just a weapon and head swap. I basically just sliced the Banshee in half and then built an upper body with extra bits from the Barge sprue, making sure to pose the upper body quite wistfully.
