    Basicly im just asking people if they have seen, done or are thinking about doing anytpe of non typical conversions. Arm positions or weapon swaps, adding parts or modifations. Just something ineteresting.


    Until we get more people using teh board on a regular basis I figured id just start posting on the boards. Hopefully that will draw people in.

    this is in the LOTR section so i think phantassamer wants LOTR conversions. I converted a knight of minas tirith into a makeshift knight of dol amroth first i cut a sheild off a warrior of minas tirith then painteed a blue swan over the tree nice effect trust me. then i cut the spear tip and head from a guard of the fountain court i switched heads with the knight and fountain guard then swapped speartips. finally i used greenstuff to mold a cloak which i painted regalblue then for added effect i made the wings on the helmet of the knight bend backwards ill post a pic soon

    yeah thats pretty cool, i seen the pics on the WD a while back. You did a good job matching it. at first glance it looked just like the one in WD (because of the white background) so that should be a comploment as to it looks that good.
