First up, thanks for reading! I hope you have patience as this is my first attempt at a plog and I go through long phases of inactivity followed by brief frenzies. This is one of the frenzy times, and my current focus is Vampire Counts. Conversions is the name of the game for most of my armies, I can rarely leave anything as it comes from the box and I think my Vampires are a good example of this!
I present you with my Crypt Horror stand-ins:
Just got the parts for another 3 of these beasties, I plan to be a bit more inventive with the heads this time, now I have a better idea of how everything will work. Perhaps one howling for the champion?
Next up is my Winged Nightmare. This one is a bit of a whim, bashed it together as an excuse to use the spare wings I had from the Crypt Horror kit and now I'm wondering what to do for a rider. The Z.Drag guy is way too big, I have an old metal Lahmian knocking around and she looks a bit lost on him with the huge wings!
So in my quest to find a suitable rider I got to thinking about the Coven Throne and the Handmaidens that come with it. Given the position of the wings (originally done to fit the metal figure on sitting side-saddle) would one of the maidens fit on there? I don't have the kit myself, so I'm looking for a bit of help before I go out and spend the money just for ONE part of it! Arm positions aren't a problem, I'm more interested in how the skirt and bum will fit on the horse. I've already carved away the rear of the saddle to make fitting a model on there a bit easier, and there is plenty of room for the long skirt to flow given how high the Hellsteed is off the ground.
Hopefully someone out there can help me!
Updates with the rest of the army (some of it even painted!) to follow tomorrow, hope you like what you see so far!
