Those look awesome. Too bad I traded all of them away. :cry:

That is awesome and doesn't look like it's hugely complicated. Great job :D

This is very impresive. I think it is a very good sub for them as long as you don;t own any BG.

here is tht comparison shot you asked about. That is why.

As soon as they remake the Last Alliance models I will convert all my numenor plastics and elf plastics into either orcs or specters, probly specters. But I do like the orcs you made with them. You did call them black numenorians, I didn't compare those, but black numenorians are bigger than black guard if that helps.

I do like the black guard models (tho are insanely large, those are some big angry orcs 8-) )... but they are just so expensive. I think it's around $109 NZD if I want to make one command formation. Tho the command blister is double the price of the standard blister. Judging by your pic Sithious I don't think even if I converted Uruks they'd be close to the same size that size looks like they are 28mm. Thanks for all the kind words from everyone. I've culled my Numenoreans down from 50 to 26... now what to do with the last 26.
Hmm specters.. good idea Sithious

Very nice tutorial, I will definately try to make some Black Guard using numenoreans now!

That is an unbelievably clever conversion. I found these on Google IMage Search and didn't even realise they were converted until I read the page.
