I have the wish to have my lvl 4 mage maunted, to give her some protection and to make her more moveable.
Now to the tricky part, I want her on a steed, but (I asked the local GW) is seams like I have to cut her of and then glue her to glade rider legs. I whould hate to destroy a model like that, and thought it whould be cool to make me able to choose, horse or not, depending on the situation. But for all I tried I cant do it. I tried magnets, but they were to big, tried other magnets ans they were to weak.
Do you guys have any idea, or do I need to taste the sour apple and decide, ruined and maunted or normal and walking....?
Why not put a pin through one of her legs, and pin her to the base of an ELven steed at rest, or else to a standard 20x20 base? Also which spellsinger is this model? If it is the floaty one, then you could simply mounte her o teh base and say that she counts as mounted.

I wrote alot and missklick, so it all went away. Short recap:
I dont really understand the pin thing, whould you mind refracing it? "Pin here to the base of an ELven steed at REST?
Ill will buy both of the mages, I want 2 in my army. I will make the easiest one of them the maunted one (this explains itself).
The main idea was to really make her MAUNTED, Ill rather have a non maunted one then saying that "This one is on foot be I count it as being maunted...
As I see it there are 3 ways of doing this, 2 ways where you can choose, one definitive way.
1. The one way that dont enables you to choose. Go centaur on her ass. Take a saw, cut the model in half just below her belly. Take a steed and remove the head part. Glue them together (might require a pin to hold it steady) and use greenstuff to get a smooth transition. There you have it a spellsinger/ centaur...
2. Use a pin and put her on a elven steed.
3. Use a magnet (one in the foot, one in the horse) and use that to hold them together.
Pinning: Drill a small hole (1mm) in the two places that should be on top of each other. Unbend a paperclip, cut it to the right size (the two hole depths together). Glue the paperclip in one of the two models. I would go with the horse cause that would make spellsinger interchangeable.
1) how about taking a Glade Rider / Wild Rider / Mounted Lord and just using glade rider etc parts and some other bits (painting it different than other GR) to make it look different...
2) mount the mage on an Eagle... If you buy the Noble with Greatweapon you can pretty much take the log he stands on off and just not attach the weapon (doing something interesting ) and then mount him on a eagle or even Warhawk with the Eagle sized base...
3) I've even seen someone mount the top of a model (Glade Rider or even Dryad) as the head of an Elven steed... (makes it look like a centaur... was kinda cool i thought)
Use your imagination, over here the bases are what make things legal, the models are open to interpretation
PS: There used to be a Mage on Steed model for the WE army years ago, you might still find one on E-bay or somewhere. Good Luck
I wrote a long answear and then my internet died....
Here is the short summery:
I like the ideas, I think I will go for the pin idea. What is best, electric drill or non-electric. And is 1mm a good size? I think I will put the pin in the torso of the mage and then hace holes in the glade legs and the singer legs.
So, is 1mm good? And with a electric drill?
About the drill, I use the GWS hand drill thingy, just because I like it. I think the best way is hand drill cause if you mess up, you wont mess up as big as with an electrical drill
For the diameter of the drill, depends on the paperclip you are going to use. I thought 1mm is the standard, but im not sure...
Thats a really good idea, though you will probably need to GS a simple belt or similar to smooth the transition. A 1 mm with a manual pin-vice is best, electric drills tend to run too fast and thus run too hot. You have less control.
Be careful with the bit, they are very hard but VERY brittle as well, so don't apply any beding moments on them if you can help it, rotate evenly etc.
I have think i can help you.
What you need to do is take a Gladerider and take of his head, both arms and his cape, the you need to find the head you think best suits a spellweaver (I used an old dark eldar head and put a dryad head on it like a mask). Then take the arm and standard of a standard bearer cut of the top bit you glue on, this is the staff. For the other arm you could take an arm with a bow cut the bow of. Then glue some kind of long flag to it, or greenstuff something magical to it. the cape needs to be done frong greenstuff and parts of standards and plastic capes.
I sadly can't send you a pic my camera only broke last weak.
