    Is it possible to use heads from the Lord Of The Rings range on 40k models, or is the scale too different? Has anyone tried any swaps between the two ranges?

    The only head I could see you using from the LOTR range is Saurons. Any others just wouldnt look right.

    LoTR heads don't work; they are too small. However, many of the WH Fantasy heads fit.

    What about LOTR heads on chaos spacemarines? The head proportions are wrong on them, so maybe LOTR heads would make them look more realistic.

    I'd use LotR heads as trophies for CSM or DE modells. They are easy to fit on the belts, or backpacks and they look cool. In this case the small size is an advantage,.

    But has anyone TRIED such a head swap? I&#39;m not convinced before someone tells me he tried and failed.

    Actualy, it might be kinda cool to use LOTR heads on SM, It would make them seem more like there actualy 8 feet tall.

    No, if anything it would make them seem like Punk Children in Power Armour.
    I&#39;ve tried ONE headswap. Mordhiem Model&#39;s head onto an Uruk&#39;Hai body, now note that Uruk&#39;Hai are the biggest LoTR models around, but yet the head was WAY oversized.
