This is one of a pair that I've converted from the winged vampire model. This one is my army general, or captain in keeping with the army's theme. The conversion is fairly easy, the arm is from the zombie sprue, the hand from the empire militia and the armor is green stuff as is the hat. I spent quite some time on the skin, working up from tallarn flesh mixed with scaly green and fortress gray, and the armor with boltgun metal and washes with necron abyss.
The pictures could have been better but I don't have a lightbox and daylight is scarce.

Great conversion, I love it! sometimes the simple conversions are the best.
He reminds me of someone...hmmm, a skeletal Cervantes fromt he Soul Blade/Caliber computer games!

Looks good, I like it! The colors work great together!
The gold needs something more though. It looks flat. I would shade it a little more and add in some mithril silver to the gold and highlight it.
Thanks, guys, it was pretty fun to make and I'm quite proud of it.
@Almberg: The gold has been worked up from dwarf bronze and a couple of washes to burnished gold + mithril silver (about 3:1, otherwise it looks too silver and not enough gold, I think) The matte varnish I use probably dulls it down a bit and the pictures does wash out both highlights and shades. Still, I'll admit you right about the shade. Gold is tricky.
I really like what you've done with him, a very nice conversion and well painted. My only comment is that his right arm (on the left sign of the image) looks a little weedy in comparison.
