    Wild Riders Conversions

    I need everyones help here on proper conversions for wild riders.

    I wanted to know all of your opionins on making wild rider sout of glade riders with dryad bits.
    Im thinking about keeping the spears on their back and removing the bows from their capes and using dryad arms and maybe dryad heads for the arms and head.

    i think I could pull this conversion off without thenm looking like the real wild riders because of the fact that they are forest spirits so I want to make them look like forest spirits or maybe half man and half spirit to make them look like they are changing to get into combat

    any thoughts or ideas?

    Well, what I would do, is swap out the glade rider arms, for Dryad arms.

    Then I'd not use capes at all, but greenstuff trees into the hole where the cape is supposed to go. This way it looks like they have branches growing out of their backs like Dryads. I also only use the hooded heads, although, that's probably preferential.

    If you use the dryad arms that reach forward, you can get them holding spears and thrusting forward. Also, you can probably attach branch components the horses if you wish, like antlers growing out of their heads.

    I did unarmed versions of these for wardancers, and they look great! I'll try taking a picture and throwing it up sometime this evening.

    The easiest way that i found is to do a 50/50 split with horses and dryads. File the saddle flat and taper the neck slightly. glue a torso up dryad to the neck slot and fill in with green stuff. A nice little addition is to use green stuff to add vines wrapping around the body and legs. It end up looking really cool and completley diff to the normal ones.

    Yeah. That's probably cheaper too. Just buy a box of Dryads and some horse sprues on line.
