Welcome to Librarium Online!
Needed some opinions on how to convert a vampire hero, i bought 2 boxes of bloodknights recently , have assembled 1 box , and have another 5 BKs to assemble , i wanted to field 4 BKs in each unit , with a vampire hero leading it (using the kastellan model) but in the second unit i obviously want the hero to look different to the first units , so i am considering making it a female bloodknight , any suggestions on heads to use? other tips on changing its sexuality?
well you could do like a headless horse men idea using archons horse would be kind of cool
Would it be at all possible to use part of, or even the whole of, one of the old Lahmian models? You get a blister with one on foot and one mounted.
The main trouble would be that they're riding 'side-saddle' so I don't think you'd be able to just cut the body in half and drop it on the Kastellan's legs. At least not without some re sculpting along the line.
I've heard there's supposed to be a female champion of chaos coming out soon, but I've not seen pictures of that. Might be something worth looking in to, though?
Oh, and I'm not sure if it's applicable at all, but Doctor Thunder had a project where he converted a whole bunch of female marines. You can find the thread >> here <<, I don't know if it will help but I thought I'd mention it. He has a bit of a tutorial in post number 15 if you don't want to look through all the rest of the thread (and if my linking works...)
I thought id post a little update to this thread , i decided to opt for the female vampire idea i had , and converted the bloodknight kastellan into my vampire , using the head and halo + sword from the sister of battle st.celestine the living saint , cutting off the shoulder spike to make room for the halo and to declutter the minature, i green stuffed the gaps on the model , and also green stuffed the appropriate parts onto the armour (ie: boobs) and as im not one for much converting , due to only recently starting the hobby i must say i am very proud of the results!!
if anyone is interested i will try post some pictures before i paint!
thanks for everyones input ,
