As are the original figures. The tragedy being I had twenty of the original Manflayer models back in the 90's, now worth, it would seem, about £10 each. Sad.
So to create the new unit I had a look at the various current offerings out there, and in the end settled on the Black Ark Corsairs as reasonably suitable; I was able to pick up a pack for £13 on eBay.
Now they weren't going to be perfect, most notably in that their cloaks are clearly of a reptilian skin rather than human skin attributed to Mengil's regiment. But we can easily get round that with the discreet renaming above. During assembly I noted that though incredibly detailed, these modern GW plastics are remarkably mono-posed. There is little you can do with their appearance really.
Still that sort of repetition makes ranking up easier, and painting can be straightforward:
I think if I'm honest, I rushed the painting of these somewhat, the armour in particular looks pretty crude to my eyes. However some things worked well; for instance I used washes on the cloak to pick up the details to great effect, and I had fun with the simple banner - designed to appear like it is made from the skin of some great reptiles.
Not my best work, but to a good enough standard, and they add an enormous 400 points to my Dogs of War army.
