Upgrading the warriors of Middle-earth: Helmingas

Sun Apr 29, 2012 6:38 pm

Hi all,

Fëanor and I will be working on a series of articles, which will bear the (rather unimaginative) name of 'Upgrading the warriors of Middle-earth', and will describe some ways to convert and paint the upgraded versions of all the warriors that can be promoted in the new books.
Of course, the techniques described can be of use for many other projects as well, so they're certainly worth checking out! ;)

First up is my article on upgrading Warriors of Rohan to Helmingas, which can be found here:

blog.php/?p=425

EDIT: With the TLA library down, you can find the article here:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/584 ... mingas.pdf

We'll collect all the links to the various articles (still to come) in this thread, and of course, if you've got any thoughts or comments, you can leave them here as well!

Nice!

I've been upgrading some of my elves in the following ways:

For Galadhrim Knights/Warriors to Galadhrim Guard:
Added pennants to the spears with a lothlorien design on them and gave helmets/shields a silver rim

For wood elves to Noldorin Exiles:
Gave them a slightly different colour scheme and elvish characters on their cloaks

For wood elves to Mirkwood guard:
Swapped their bows for High Elf bows; painted them in a different colour scheme

For High Elves to King's Guard:
Added greenstuff tassels to their helmets and painted them slightly differently.

Nice to see your article's online Coen. ;)
As I said to you before, it's a great article. It's well written and has nice step-by-step pictures.

Looking forward to seeing your next article in this series (and I'm also looking forward to starting one article in it myself :P ).

Funny how it's still attracting views after all these years! Perhaps one day I'll get around to writing another one...
