Welcome to Librarium Online!
Bought a high elves army a little while back and didn't like their play style so I've gone beack to my empire. I would like a second army however and have always wanted to try undead. Would this work turning my elves undead? I figured it could work like this:
Spear elves= zombies
silver helms/dragon princes= black knights
white lions/swordmasters= grave guard
i have an idea for converting my lion chariot into a corpse cart
So basically my background would be that an elven warhost(or expidition or something) was infiltrated by a vampire. I would come up with something a little more in depth but any ideas or suggestions?

The majority of my Skellys have Dark Elf weapons, chests etc with skeleton arms etc, yours wouldnt work quite as well though
It would be cool... If you're good at converting it can actually be a great look on the Army
I'm pretty inexperienced with green stuff but other than that I love conversions but I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around how I can make it look like that theme without it looking like I got bored with my elves and wanted a quick switch. I would really like to put some love into this army so any suggestions and help would be really helpful.
You can use glue. Buy a cheap glue and let it partially dry. You can use it by cutting and bending. It's just a tip, if Greenstuff is no good for you
You could also do as me, "stealing" parts from other Armies. This will cost you ALOT, but will almost everytime make you satisfied. If you can, buy Zombie heads in some way or another, and switch those with the Elven heads Best-in-test
Elves combine with undead very well and can make a quite cool army. You will need to pull at least some of your models apart to add skeleton bits, a box or two of skeletons (the old ones would be better for converting if you can get them) will give you plenty of parts to have fun with. A lot of the model will be made in the painting as well though, darker evil robes and pale 'dead' skin if not skulls makes them look good.
I have made some undead mostly with Dark Elf bits because I wanted the crossbows when that was an option in the Sylvanian army, a few of them are here.
Good luck with the army and remember to have fun making them dead!
Green stuff is only expensive if you buy it from Games Workshop...
Buy the bulk container for about 10 bucks....I have yet to use all of it and I use it all of the time...and I still have a ton left.
Just look online for Knead-Tite...I believe that is the company that makes the stuff...it's the same as GW greenstuff.
