Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ever since reading the Guardian of the Forest Novel by Graham McNeill, which I thouroughly enjoyed, I have decided to go about converting a couple of models that would be representations of some characters from the book, namely the Bretonnian Lord Leofric and the Eternal Guard Cairbre.
These models would just be for show, or for use in friendly games with friends.
Firstly the model for Leofric I would have based on how he is described near the beginning of the book where he meets himself as a Grail Knight and mounted upon an Elven steed. (Wielding a leaf shaped curved sword and holding a banner)
Secondly for Cairbre, i was thinking of converting a model for him being mounted on an Elven steed and with his spear (can't remember the name) split in two.
However I am having difficulty in thinking what parts to use to create these two characters and would appreciate any help and advice that can be given. I'm not all that confident in using green stuff, so any advice that would keep the use of it to a minimum would be greatly appreciated.
You could try a Dark Elf Rider horse for Cairbre. They are minimally armoured and have a look of speed to them. As for Leofric's steed, I suppose any one Bretonnian will do.
there was a white dwarf a while back, i think about maybe or 9 or 10 back. If you like i can look it up for you. If you own them look for the ones with wood elf covers. For conversion wise, The horse could be a dark riders, or a wood elf horse. For the eternal guardian guy, well you might have to build him out of glade rider parts, because that will be impossible to make out of a real eternal guard. You could use the spear holding arms and just modify what the hands are holding.....
