Well, here is the deal. I recently sold my high elf army to some really desperate individuals who fell in love with the new codex. As for me, well, I just wasnt feeling it with the HE so I couldnt play with something I didnt like no matter how great the rules for them are. Anyway, back to the topic. I am trying to make my own grail relique model since I dont really like the one from GW. I am thinking of using a large silver cross that I had lying around, and I was hoping to mount it on a base with wheels and have 3 pilgrims at each side acting like saints. I got the idea from a movie, and was hoping to realy go through with it.
Wood bases are too light to support a heavy metal cross so I will have to use something heavier. Also, any ideas for possible wheels? Also, how can I mount the cross into the base?
Any ideas, comments or suggesting on how I could turn this into a reality?
well in theory the idea sounds really cool. in terms of the base I would do what I did which is to take 2 small bases like the ones battle pilgrams are mounted on ten take a larger base like the one a treekin is mounted on glue them together (into a rectangle sort of shape) then mount your cross on it. in terms of wheels I would go with possibly some steam tank wheels or somehting like that. Also I would model some ropes onto the cross and have a couple of pilgrams straining to pull it. keep us posted on how it go's and make sure to post pics of the finished model, It sounds really cool.
i had this idea, well after watching watching kingdoms of heaven and playing medieval total war, have a good look at it on medieval total war if you can get pictures, that will help, . they're seriously the only places i have seen a "great cross".
i'm probably going to do this conversion too, because like a great deal of the few that play bretonnians my army is crusader themed, well early hospitaller, full of peasants and knights errant to reflect how the hospitaller were poorly equiped. use foot knights instead of monks, a good excuse to use foot knights
gonna have to get wheels and start from scratch, shouldn't be that hard its just a cross supported on a platform with wheels. got to get the size right, screaming bell parts might be useful?
