The Harpies attack!

Today we have a fun unit from Dark Age Games.  This is from the Skarrd faction, and they are Harpies.

The Harpy was the first successful strain of modified creature that the Grafters ever created.  Based on Female subjects, they are modified to become terrifying shock troops for the Skarrd.

First, the fingers of each woman are removed, down to the last knuckle.  In their place are implanted razor sharp steel talons that will become their only weapons.  In addition, their backs are carved open and upon them are mounted wings... powerful but limited in function.

The collateral damage done to the nervous system, coupled with the agony of the process, turns all Harpies into raving lunatics.  However intelligent they may have been before the surgery, their minds are vastly reduced to subhuman levels, capable of only the simplest and most vicious of thoughts.

The Harpies were sculpted by Werner Klocke.
