- There might be some doubles or broken links. I have tried all links and they work (for me anyway). If you find any broken links, spelling errors, or found new links, please post them in a comment below


Article list is brought to you by I am Frodo, SidtheSloth, SouthernDunedain, Azog, ElfLover and Fëanor, the mighty elf.

Thanks :frodo:

Great idea but I've moved it from the Painting forum to the Miniatures forum as I think they might be more use in here.

I've also stickied the topic so it can be added to.

I'd like to think you might add more directly to your original post to create a useful list.

If these were made pre-warbands, should we:
A) Use Warbands with the points that are there
B) Use Warbands and add a certain pts value to each selection
C) Use LoME (not Warbands)

Hey Sid, the Chariot conversion link you gave me is to convert Rohirrim. I'm going to delete it.

Ok, I think that is it. Does anyone want me to start a page for non-G articles? I'll have to talk to a mod about deleting all other posts and locking it so it is just a list, but ill do that in a week or two as we are waiting for a certain sloth to post the ones he has saved on his computer. You have been named and thanked on the list. If there is anymore, *cough cough sid!* just pm me or post 'em... and Sid the 2nd link you gave me didnt work for me, do you want to test it? Thanks for all your contributions and I'm hopeful it will help some others.

Maybe it would be better to leave this thread open just in case anyone finds any more articles. Then when they are added to your list, the other members' posts containing links can be deleted?

Anyone able to dig up the article on plastic wood elves? It was a showcase of them painted for different themes - seasons/night time, things like that I think. Thanks.

PS Great work on getting all these together.
