Hey very nice! He looks ace. I won't try this as I don't want to cut 2 minis in half like that and I also have no skill with green stuff so the joint would look awful.

But a stunning conversion nonetheless!

Very well done! I have one conversions waiting in the wings for ages now, but in retrospect, this was a much easier way of doing it.. Good to have someone with the eye to spot a conversion like this!

I like it. A rather simple and neat conversion. Great idea.

That is a very tasty conversion - expensive but if you want a mini that stands out from the crowd, there is a price to pay. Neat article and I like the paint scheme.
A cheaper alternative mount would be one of the new plastic SKoDA - it would need to be tattered and distressed to look 'dead' but you would also be able to convert the unused rider to a casualty. There sould be more sculpting and greenstuff work involved too. :yay:

Thanks for the comments chaps.

Yeah Dorth, a little bit expensive I know but I'd already planned on amputating the Witch-Kings sword arm for my own devious purposes so it just gave me an excuse to hack him to pieces totally :twisted:
