Im almost settled on the VC army I want to make but now I need advice of a different kind
I want to make my VC army by converting HE models (long story)
So far Ive come up with::
HE Heros --> VC Heros
Most of the HE Heros can easily be converted to VC heros
Spear Elves --> Skellies / Zombies
With added bones and rotting bits this conversion isnt hard
Silver Helms --> Black Knights
Cheaper and looks just as good imo - also easy to make them look more dead
Swordmasters / Pheonix Guard --> Grave Guard
Depending on the weapons I take, shields can be bought seperatly
Archer Elves --> Spirit Hosts
Looks ok once the bodies have neem reshaped etc
Whats-her-face --> Banshee
lol cant remember her name, but shes a special HE Mage with Hand Maidens
I need some ideas for the other VC untis though any thoughs?
Maybe some deadlooking giant eagles as fell bats? Don't know about good models for that, but perhaps you could do a cross between giant eagle and carrion from tomb kings.
A good thing would be to get some dire wolves, but I'm a little stumped for ideas how to do that 'high elf-style'. Isn't there something about white lions in their fluff? Don't know if that could work, and it would probably be a lot of work to do...
Other than that you're pretty much set. Solid core, heroes and wights, what more do you need?
You have to go and look at this link to the US Games Workshop site. Someone on there has done exactly what you're talking about. Down to the model!!
Enjoy, I hope it's helpful.
All I have to say about that link is GODDAMMIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ah well lol, guess I wasnt about to be semi-origonal >.>
Ok so lets see we noe got::
Vampire Lord / Count / Thrall --> HE Hero / Tryion
Necromancer Lord --> Teclis / Mounted Mage
Necromancers --> Male HE Mages
Skellies --> Spear Elves with skelli converisions
Zombies --> Spear Elves with zombi bits
Wolves --> Atm goblin wolves, but if I can find some White Lion models as a base/visual help then major conversion work todo
Ghouls --> Hmmm, any ideas?
Bat Swarms --> Hmmm, only vialble way I can think of is to convert the VC bats into pigeons XD
Black Knights --> Silver Helms
Grave Guard --> Swordmasters/Pheonix Guard depending on weapons
Fell Bats --> Great Eagles converted (wil try to Carrions etc)
Spirit Hosts --> In that picture he's used Hand Maidens, I may try that or Archers
Black Coach --> Will be difficult but converted from the Tironic Chariot
Banshee --> Female HE Mages
Ok now I need some more help
Does anyone know where I can get some Lion models that are the right sive for warhamer? Or have any ideas what I will need to convert Dire Wolves into Lions?
