hate the current black coach model , think it looks static and plain - any conversion ideas? or pics of conversions? once i have decided on a style and idea for my coach il begin posting progress in this thread!
You could try to Corpse cart to make a conversion of the Black coach. The Corpse cart has a fair amount of bits and pieces that look undead. It also has some kind of Wraith that drives it that would work well on a Black coach. You would need to replace the Zombies pulling it though as the Black coach uses skeleton or rotten horses (Nightmares I think they may be called). The Black coach is enclosed and includes a coffin. You would need to make some sort of casket for the regenerating Vampire remains.
Things like the curtains or just general old, creepy rags can be made from tissure paper soaked in watered down PVA. Just tear off what you need soak it in the PVA and place it where you want it. If it doesn't go right straight away it is easy to replace as it is just water + PVA + tissue paper. I would look at what bits are available from mail order. Things like coffin shields can help to make a coffin obviously. Coffin shields can also be useful in applying them as part of the Coaches frame, making it appear that the Coach is make out of parts taken from a graveyard. I would suggest gathering a fair number of skulls, bones and general undead bits to help make the Black coach.
You could make the coach go uphill, downhill or across a slope, making it lean in any direction. You could also have it go across a small hill, making the coach and nightmares lean in different directions.
Another thing you could do is equip it with large flapping banners, och some kind of creatures hitching a ride on the roof.
These things should make it more dynamic.
Signatures are annoying. Here's right back at ya!
I actually quite like the old Black Coach, but to update it a little, I have converted old Bretonnian Warhorses with the heads from old Chaos steeds, as these are more like Nightmares than the skeletal steeds the existing kit comes with (an also gives me two more skeletal steeds for my black knights....) Additionally, I will be hanging tattered greenstuff banners etc from the coach.
My bf actualy tryed taking a dark elf chariot and having it pulled by two of "the thing in the woods" models, the thing in the woods is huge though so you'd need a wider front base than having 2 horses.
Tomb Kings, Marines, Eldar
rep for you^^^ never knew about the mordheim model , and i love it , i can really change its look with a few subtle modifications , spikes and such , and painting the steeds to look more possessed and tormented!!
thanks all for your input and ideas , i shall post the progress of my coach as it develops!!
Use barded Empire steeds or Bretonnian Warhorses rather than the "ponies" - these are too smal really. You could also potentially use the Glade-rider steeds, as these can look pretty "demented" if painted correctly...
