Ashigaru Archery Sergeant Conversion

I had seen this simple conversion on the Warlord Games website and wanted to try it out myself – with my own little twist. It is the standard Bow/Yumi arms adjusted slightly to give a completely different look to the model. I have been undecided in what combination of models I wanted to build the bowmen/musketmen sprues. So to give myself some options for the future I decided to make one of my standard models stand out from the crowd so I could use him as a Sergeant of Archery if required.
There are no work in progress pictures for this model, just a brief description of the process and a series of pictures of the finished conversion.

There currently isn’t a Ninja model available armed with a Tactical Bow in the Infinity range, so I thought I’d convert one for him. Continue reading

Khador Mortar Conversion

So this is yet another of my old tutorials that are no longer on the web, and hence getting republished on my new blog.

Modernising the Mortar

Mortars have existed for hundreds of years in the real world,don’t believe me go look at wikipedia. The Khadoran mortar resembles the early style of portable mortar (link or link), and while I recognise that the Iron Kingdoms’ history and technological advancement is not meant to mirror that of our own history, I would like my Khador light artillery to have developed a little further than depicted by their models. So with that idea in mind I want to make my Khador Mortar represent an Iron Kingdoms version of a more modern mortar (link). Continue reading
