I said a while back that I was converting some Empire models to become Black Knights, and I promised Big Canadian that I would post some progress. I'm using the lame excuse that my camera, which is true but everyone says it.
(Could someone resize these, they are huuuge)
This is my Hell Knight, he is much better in person, because these pictures are a bit dark but enjoy!
~Editted to remove the image tags, those pics are huuuge. Click the links to view them, the thread will be easier to read now~

you might want to resize these pics
but from what I can see (damn they're big pics) you've done a decent job

How did you make the horse rear like that?
I happen to be making my own unit of Black Knights with Empire knights. I'm still debating whether I should give a couple skeleton heads or leave them helmed and painting glowing eyes in their visors. An empty open-faced helm would be pretty cool as well, but I'm not sure how I'd go about making making one.
Gods, I hate the default Wight Cava... Black Knights figures. Heavy metal rider on plastic skeleton horse... why on earth did they think that was a good idea?
Yeah, I know what were they thinking, plus the models suck IMO.Originally Posted by prince_dios
Lol, that's the first time someone's asked modeling advice from me; First I chopped off the hooves at the ankle, then I sawed off the right leg at the knee, I used a modeling saw for this.
Then I pinned the legs to the ankle at the angle I wanted and filled it up with green stuff, modelling it a tad so it isn't just flat and there you have it.
I like the BK models as they are, but maybe it's because they're the first time I painted something, looked at it, and thought, "Wow, I didn't a decent job for the first time."
What bugs the snot out of me with them is that the arms are so thin. At the time, I wasn't familiar with green stuff. If I were to remake them, I'd putty those arms in place and not rely on superglue.
Identical to the pros Alucard but I gotta say I rather like the GG and the BK models GW has out... I use to hate them then I took a closer look and saw they were actually kinda nice... for my BK I bought the GW models and then I added the barding from the empire warhorses (LOTS of friggin work) but a great result Ill post when I get a chance.
What you are we once were. What we are you will become!!!
Thanks man, nice idea for yours. Your turn to show 'em, and there's more coming soon, now that I've kinda mastered the Digital Camera. (Y)Originally Posted by Big_Canadian
Looks good, the metal looks very good and in the right tone etc etc.
A little smaller pics and a better focus should make it easier to review the minis more closely.
But as said, they do seem to look good.
Cool sig by the way!

It looks good so far.Originally Posted by Alucard
I like the 'rearing' as well; Perhaps to help out the static grass, go for an earthy color around the base? - (of where the grass is coming from) A brown maybe? Just my two cp.
Ah, I forgot to mention that I haven't done the bases yet as I need some sort of brown.Originally Posted by Zombiekatfizh
