[Archive] Alternative CD Lord/Hero

Father Grumpmas:

I got an order of miniatures from Heresy yesterday and I had ordered two of the below for a laugh.



A lot of you have probably seen this before so I apologise for re-posting but it is a nice wee mini - very crisp detail on the cloak and it sort of blends in with 3rd edition CD figures.

The mini is three parts - main body, head, and sword hand (or a football hand for BB players). It would be very easy to graft new weapons on to it.

Anybody convinced? - a bit sci-fi I know.

wallacer:

That is the miniature I use for my Chaos Dwarf Lord.

He looks good on the tabletop and usually elicits a smile from my opponents.

Father Grumpmas:

Do you use the football? :stuck_out_tongue:

Hashut’s Blessing:

What prompted you to get two? One to keep original and one for converting? How will you convert it, if you do?

Father Grumpmas:

I thought one might get a staff and head modification to turn it into a mage.

The other thought was to find a TIE fighter model of the right scale and do a particularly dumb Lord on Taurus conversion (he would be riding, not flying the fighter).

May the farce be with you?

Snotling:

hm, would need some converting and another colour sheme (not darth vader-like ^^), but could look good (and all in all, funny :D)

okay, let’s talk about alternatives, how about these reaper guys:

nice sorcerer

and something else… mixture of sorcerer and lord… so why not? ^^

Revlid:

My advice would be to do up the helmet to look more like a metal helm than a sci-fi helmet. Shouldn’t take too much, just a small bit off greenstuff over the mouthpiece with a slit down the middle and the eye-pieces drilled out.

Then file off the buttons on his chest, and you’re done.

Love the model, anyway! :smiley:

Hashut’s Blessing:

I think it’d be cool to have the model IN the fighter, or possibly open-topped to show how he can attack. Shouldn’t be difficult. If I can find my old model, I may try getting the courage to hack it up… Or buy a new one. Get it from Hasbro…

gORCUS:

Now convert an emperor Palpatine sorcerer lord.:smiley:

Hashut’s Blessing:

That’d be cool, just got to find a model the right scale! He he he. (Yes, because I’M not a Star Wars geek shifty eyes shifty eyes)

Father Grumpmas:

An entire Star Wars themed CD army - how cool(?) would that be.

CD - Emperors guard

Hobgoblins - Stormtroopers (they are pretty crap and no-one cares how many die)

Wolfriders - scouts on speeder bikes/ stormtroopers on lizards

Orcs/Arrer Boyz/Black Orcs - assorted bounty hunters

Sneaky Gits - Scout troopers

Bolt throwers/Death rockets/Earth shakers - assorted heavy weapons teams

Bull Centaurs - assorted Sith baddies on speeder bikes

Oh, the horror of it all :wink:

Hashut’s Blessing:

Stormtroopers are only crap because they have to be so the heroes survive. In all other scenarios, they kick arse! The lizards are called dewbacks. I now have plans for a secondary army of CD, based on SW! W00t!

Father Grumpmas:

All you need is an Ewok themed BOC army and you can recreate the battle of Endor.
