I'm back in the groove on my Army of Sylvania and there's some conversions I want/need to do.
The first one concerns Blacknadder Von Carstein who is the general of my army.
I'm considering giving him something like the Ring of the Night for a 5+ ward save and a great wep. Go to http://store.us.games-workshop.com/storefr...2237&GameNav=13 and look at the von Carstein on foot on the far left. That's the vampire I have.
I need to figure out a way to give him the ring and a great wep. Of course, I already assembled and painted the model. Nothing in my life is easy.
For the ring I thought of using green stuff in a thin roll, cut a bit off, make a hole in the center, and have that be the ring. Sort of like the Ring of Power (aka One Ring) from LoTR. I'd paint it silver or something like that. I'd have it hanging on a chain around the vampire's neck or something. Don't think I'd be able to actually model a ring onto the hands since the free hand has to hold a great wep and the other hand is hidden in the cloak.
The great weapon is even more tricky. I have a plethora of Chaos bitz and thought I could use something from there.
The Chaos Warriors, plastic, that came out before the brand new ones had a pole for the standard bearer. Just above the hand it is spiky and at the very top is a sharp spear point. I considered cutting that off and giving it to the vamp. Or, I could cut the spear point off, affix an axe head or halberd head top, from the same plastic warriors, to the top of the pole. Then cut the pole from the hand and glue it to the vamp.
The other idea is suggested by Creon. I could use the Lord of Slaanesh halberd (see URL below) for the vampire's great weapon.
What do you guys think of these options and what suggestions do you have of your own?
I just noticed the URLs to the photos got spliced. Sorry about that, I guess it is something in the forum software.
This URL will take you to a photo of the vampire I have. He's far left on foot.

Some people on other forums have also recommended the Mounted Wight Spear 2 for the great weapon.

What do you guys think?
So, are there any people with strong feelings about this? Someone told me there's 2 Mordheim vampires with halberds/great weps but I can't find both of them. Can someome provide a link for me? I'm wondering if that would be less expensive eventhough I already have assembled and painted one vamp on foot.
look at the emporers champion sword heres the link
