Looking to add blood knights to my VC army, but refuse to pay 50/55quid for 5 models.
Does anyone have any good alternatives for suggestion? I was looking at the Morgul Knights from LOTR miniature range and using a skeleton unit musician instrument to make the conversion into musician, std bearer and kastellian.
Any other good alternatives? Heard chaos knights can do well with heavy conversion, but my skill is slightly limited by the fact i am not the best builder/painter lol
Chaos Knights look hard as nails, but do need some work on them... empire/bretonnian knights give 8 in the box, rather than 5 and are more 'correct' from fluff perspective (blood knights being former empire knights)...
Personal preference is the bret knights... paint them with a lot of red and some VC logos and you're laughing (menacingly!)
as blood knights are vampires and preety any warhammer race can be a vampire i'm planing on using some spare cold one knights from my dark elves as they look great anyway and only need mnior changes to make them work for my VC to join them i'll probably just modify my dreadlord as im planning on swaping him out of my elves anyways
Chaos knight are a very good option, also i thought of buying bretonnian knight models and painting them in a way so they look like ghosts, like in the old VC army. You could even paint the chaos knights in the ghost colour.
Follow the links to see what i mean...

The models aren't too bad but i like the colour scheme and dont forget to Keep Punching
Just a note on the LOTR models, heard from others that they are slightly smaller than the Warhammer minis... so you could end up with small looking blood knights if you went down the line of LOTR cavalry models...
Yeah they are smaller models, but i was thinking to get chaos or bretonnian knight models and painting like the ghost models.
I don't know if you want to limit yourself to Games Workshop models, or you play in a GW shop but I think these would do an amazing job as Blood Knights. Have a look at all the mournful knight models. I use one myself as a mounted vampire.
