Welcome to Librarium Online!
im probly stateing the obvious o_O and everbody already does this , but
10x BK= £70
TK horsemen + box of GG = perfect unit of BK for £33
also they'd be nicely customisable
(excuse my spelling )
Yeah that is a good idea. You would end up with all the legs of the GG spare of course, but oh well. Lots of people actually convert from empire or particularly Bretonnian knights mixed with skeleton pieces to get black knights, which also looks very cool. Yours would be more undead looking, and not themed from another army. Depends on what feel you want for them really.
Yep - already doing them, though am getting caparison and barding from Empire and Bretonnian warhorses and "dressing" them....It's is a royal pain carving the armour away from the horses, but the effect is WELL worth it. I have also proc-created the armour on one of them (pro-create is like grey "greenstuff") and am working on creating a fully chainmail barded model...

For some reason my pictures have gone, so I will have to take a few more shots and post them back up here later.
As a bonus, it leaves you with nice armoured and robed legs for grave guard conversions and also to make "Elven" skeletons using parts from the High Elves sprues...
