Title: My Tolkien Orc/Goblin conversion method
Post by: ldobson68 on May 17, 2022, 08:23:02 PM
Hi guys,

For a more gangly taller standard Goblin I like to use the Warhammer new Kruleboyz bodies with a head swap of the OOP Warhammer fantasy Goblin regiment heads, these always seemed too big for their small bodies to me, but are lovely sculpts, this guy got a milliput helmet and some mail to cover the back join, undercoated with the excellent Halfords khaki, shield arm left off for ease of painting

Nice conversion! He's got a sort of Alan Lee orc look about him, and your helmet looks great! And the big heads are a nice Tolkien-esque touch - something JRRT mentions a few times in various places.

Echoing Daeothar again! I was sure that was a render. Great conversion!

Many thanks, neutral colours and harsh shadows hide a multitude of sins
