Your kitbashing is truly inspiring. I love what you've done with the Victrix-sprues.

Great thread! I really like seeing people using more realistic scaled historical minis to create fantasy miniatures.

Thanks all. I've been expanding the forces of darkness, with my Celty/Vikings/Daciany/Germanic take on the Angmarim. I was after a mixed origin, vaguely uniform look. To that end I've used helmet types and shield shapes as well as general colours to tie these Victrix mix and match figures together.

There are two leader types - one is a Dacian straight off the sprue, the other is a more menacing-looking Viking. His helmet doesn't match the rest, but he does look like the sort of warlord who might be comfortable working for Witch King Inc.

Thanks Rick!

Here's a better picture of the Angmarim, and some of the Deadmen of Dunharrow.

They are largely made from Victrix Dacians, with a few Gallic and Viking spare parts. I wanted to try and capture the descriptions given by Legolas and Gimli "The shapes of men ... and pale banners like the shreds of cloud and spears like winter thickets on a misty night", with "dim horns blowing".

My band of Noldor grows slowly.

They're all essentially Victrix Saxons, with a couple of spares from their Viking and Gallic warriors sets and a fairly billowy Wargames Atlantic cloak.

As I've said earlier on, I was very taken with Victor Ambrus' pictures of elves in the Tolkien Bestiary. His idea of them has stayed with me and is the basis for these four.

Missed this thread until now. Seriously impressive work. Really awesome.

OMG, those look unbelievably good!

Curse you, Sir.  Now I won’t be able to get that idea out of my head.  :)
