Like this one as a Black Numenorean captain.

Do you have the scale of these miniatures?

here ya go.

I compare a GW elf to the Dark Sword mini shown in my WIP.

Also, I forgot to look at the George RR Martin collection from Dark Sword, some of them look nice.

Most of them aren't perfect, more specifically the beards some of them have, but I think I can sand that off.

Alright, the elves fit. They just happen to be 6'5", makes them more lordly and in first age men and elves were supposedly taller.

Renly sculpt would make a nice elf king.

The 9 or so Dark Sword mini's I posted are the main figures in all of their ranges that "could" fit in my armies.

The main reason I said could is because I am still not sure on the idea of making all of my main characters from Dark Sword mini's.

I think that I will stick with just using four main Dark Sword miniatures within the army. First being the fingolfin model I already have, the three other characters would be his three sons, Turgon, Fingon, and Argon.

I was thinking of using DS mini's for the various leaders of the Houses of Gondolin, but I think that would look weird with different looking miniatures all around. Instead, if I just use 4 or so, it wouldn't look weird, if that makes sense.

Going through the Thunderbolt miniatures line, I can't believed I missed this one, but this one just screams for a Feanor proxy.

The facial expression, and the pose is so aggressive, which would be perfect to portray feanor.

I just ordered King Arthur and Merlyon from Thunderbolt not to long ago to be an Easterling Champion, and Blue Wizard.

nice, if you can take a comparison pic, that would be awesome. Still curious about thunderbolt mini's.

I have a bunch of Thunderbolt Elves. They are a bit taller and very slender compared to GW sculpts. I have the entire, earlier sculpted, Elven line including cavalry.

I don't think that you could mix these in with GW sculpts.
You could use them all together, as an Elven clan or Second Age Elves.
Don't misunderstand me here. These are excellent sculpts and would be an excellent choice for your projects.
They just don't mix with GW. in my opinion.
Perhaps you'll see it differently.

yeah, I've seen some other comparison pics online and they seem a little different compared to the GW models. I'm not really planning on intermingling them with the GW elves, but I will be having them represent another army alongside the GW ones.

I wonder if that would look ok. We shall see.

Anyone know of any sources to find just heads?

For example, I know ebob makes these heads, which I quite like, and am thinking of swapping them with Dol-Amroth knights.

I was thinking of using the Perry Bro's War of the Roses archers as alternatives to Blackroot Vale archers.

For reference: http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0309/8 ... 1397662143

My question is: does anyone know a heroic looking mini that matches the look of these figures that can be used as Duinhir?

Fire Forge minis will be releasing their medieval Russians. Their town militia will be great Lake Town militia. I love the old man and the fat guy, so characterful. Also, I think they are 1/4 the price each of the LT militia. If you lose the base, they are 100% scale compatible with our minis! Win all around!

I have their horsemen and love them! They got the Numenorean cavalry conversion that is floating around. Their footmen will likely get ebob heads to become KoDA, since I don't like the huge wings and mine face Haradrim in the desert and would die in plate mail from heat exhaustion. The Mongols could make great Khandish proxies also. My next conversion will be barded horses with old school KoMT riders and capes to be Citadel Guard Mounted.
