Help Finding Weapon Bits: Hand Scythe/Sickle

Recommended Posts

    I'm going to be building a bunch of cavalry to use as Dothraki from Game of Thones, and I was wondering if anyone knew a source for their customary hand scythe/sickle weapon?    Rather than bend a bunch of straight words into curves, it would be a lot better if i could just find them sold as bits.

 

Did any plastic Warhammer figures ever come armed with such a weapon?

Yes the old saurus models had those.

Mantic Scarecrows - both right handed and left handed, as well as a scythe and a shorter straight bladed sickle. (Has a different name - but I am not remembering it.)

*EDIT* Their skeletons Troop sprue likewise has a single sickle (A uni-sickle?)

Thanks for the great ideas so far, everybody!   Those are some good leads for me to pursue.

Warhammer Tomb Kings have some Khopeshes. I can't remember which set gives the most. My army is boxed up at the farm but I may have extra bits. I know I used a lot of them to make an entire unit with them. If you want I can dig through them for you. If I have any they'd look like the second guy in this pic (not mine).

There's 14294 Nefsokar Weapons, as well as 14295 Necropolis Weapons but those don't quite have that good of a value to them for what you're looking for.

 

Kromlech's Legendary Vibro Scythes (KRCB151) for the two handed variant, and Khopesh Vibro Swords (KRCB014) but they're more futuristic...

 

Scibor Miniatures CPEG0123 Egyptian Swords is another Khopesh styled one.

 

Anvil Industries A-WE-DHS "Double Handed Scythes", although these have power armor hands pre-attached.

 

HiTech Miniatures ASCY034 "Infected Scythe"

 

Black Tree Designs HYW1024 Pesants are getting warmer, as they're at least fantasy...

 

 

Hmm, what about 89027: Lini, Iconic Gnome Druid?

Or 77421: Jade Tiger, Monk

Thanks for the continued ideas!

 

Zink-  Though close, those aren't exactly right.  I appreciate the offer, but don't think you need to go digging. 

 

WhiteWulfe-  I'll check out those sources.  A futuristic handle isn't necessary a deal breaker, as the handle will be hidden by the hand. :)

old warhammer zombies had the sickle, though I am unsure if they are in print. Also it was attached to a zombie hand. I think mantic skeletons also have them one per sprue.

      So.... have you ever started something you thought looked cool as hell... then way into it you just go "$&@% balls!!!"? Kinda what i'm feelin for this piece. Its my third and for a d&d campaign. its basically supposed to be a dark elf sorcerrer but since my elf wizard mini I had on hand at the time was ... well defective on arrival. I figured it was close enough and i'd swap him in (hence my attempt at a fire sword to give any indication of the fire heavy wizard i actually am playing). I primed in dark grey which is what i had at the time. (wish i'd waited for black for this color scheme) found out gun metal sucks on grey... first "meh". Wanted the red to be a bit more catchy so mixed it with metallic silver....wasnt using wet palette at begining so the paint frequently dried and subsequent batches werent always same...so now I almost get the feel this guys going glam..... second "Meh". Other player uses an elf but a ranger, I wanted this guy a paler tone but it just seems to close to the hair I'd done.... third "MEH". At this point i dont think I even like the model really. Think I was rushing to make the weekend dead line to have the three minis done with this being the last one.... any thoughts to possibly save this one from the green bath of shame? (at this point I'd rather play one of my spiders)

      Long time, no see. This fellow has been done for a while, but had no base. Also made up from flagellants and techno priests. 
      The flamer, and backpack are probably taken from some chaos marine. The fire 'bit' is straw from an ear-pin.:

      This fellow has been pieced together by random bits in the bits pile. Body is a techno priest from Warhammer 40k. Head is from the flagellant pack for Warhammer Fantasy.
      I believe the weapon is from a Chaos Marine. 
       
      Cloak, I don't know. Lizard men regiment maybe? 
       
      Skull pile is from Gorgotha, Warzone accessories.
