Totally loving A Game of Thrones at the moment so I thought I'd try doing something a little related

Just a quick shot of a conversion that I did. Minas Tirith Body, Uruk Hai head, Roman shield and a bit of converting.
This is probably just going to be a one off but I just wanted to see how easy it is to do



Inspired by these.



The paintjob is probably a bit bright but I like to exaggerate with colours anyway.

Any Comments, Criticisms etc are always welcome.

Oh, my, it's Nicolai Coster-Waldau... DK's own Sean Bean-wannabe  Laugh

Good call for the proxy parts, and well done on the conversions - how did you remove the original shield properly?

A bit of green stuff to extend the ridge, and to build up between the eyes, could have gone even further to make it match, but if you are not going to do more, never mind - it's a nice 'captain of the guard' og hero model for something, anyway.  Smiley

Are those some lost Uruk-hai in the background of screenshot?

Love the conversion.

A really nice conversion there. Turns it into something almost unrecognisable from the original donors (and that's coming from someone who had to stare at these every weekend for two years, hint hint).

I would actually like to see some more along the same lines.

I just hacked away the original shield, it's a plastic mini so it was fairly easy to do. I left the hand and detail and just cut away and filed the excess.
It was pretty straight forward, the helmet was a bit of a pain, I used plasticard to extend the helmet 'fin' thing and that in all honesty was the longest and hardest part of the job. The hardest bit was getting it to the right shape without the stuff snapping and splitting. I might try a few more who knows, I'll try and find a more efficient/easier method of helmet construction.

My brother has actually been similarly inspired and is currently using Perry WOTR plastics to make a few men of the Nights Watch. I'll try and persuade him to get some shots up.

I agree. It's an excellent conversion, but the helmet does still look a bit too Uruk Hai-like for my taste. Making separate eye-holes should help change the look.

Tbh I didn't even notice the eye holes until you guys pointed it out, I think I might have a go at sorting that out. My main focus was on the top of the helmet. Will have a go at it. I think I might try a few more now tbh as I have a full sprue of Minas Tirith men, who knows how long my motivation will hold though, probably until something new and shiny comes along.

Here is a link to my brother's pictures, I've been having prolonged, ongoing and very very annoying issues with photobucket. It was working fine this morning when I posted the above but this afternoon it's deciding to warp and stretch all my photos beyond recognition so I'm afraid you'll have to bare with a link.

I'll try and get some images sorted onto here but I'm not holding my breath.

Again any C&C is welcome as always.

First off its a mounted commander.


Next up is a spearman


Spearman #2


Now a swordsmen


Polearm


And finally... A group shot


Sorry about the volume of  pictures, I hope that you like them.  Like I said they are meant to represent members of the Night's Watch. They are based on Perry WOTR miniatures with a bit of greenstuff and some LOTR plastic bits too I think. My brother also frequents here so I'm sure if there are any further C&C or questions he'll be happy to answer them,

Inspired bit of kit bashing there. I have a load of poorly painted LOTR plastics collected via ebay over the years from numerous lots, but be life in the old plastic yet!

Thanks for sharing.

Vary cool, are they going to be used in some kind of skimmish game or some thing like that?

Excellent stuff!  I've been wondering how to convert the House Lannister and you've done a terrific job (I'm probably going to steal it).  Cheesy  I was thinking that the LotR Rangers of the North plastic boxed set from GW would do a good job as proxies for the Nightwatch.
