I think it looks great, at least you are trying. So many people are frightened away by converting models because they don’t want to quote unquote ruin a model. The only thing I would recommend is to take the bridle and wrap the end of it around the top by his hand like a noose. That way you don’t have the open end and an angry looking wolf trying to eat the middle of your whip. No hard feeling, because like I said, it looks great, and I am jealous. It looks nice painted as well.

That was actually a good Idea. I have tried it and the bridle certainly looks less like a whip.

Good effort, loving the idea and you have done a sound job putting it together. I wonder if a slight reposition of the head would look more natural? Keep em coming and great idea.

Here comes my second model. He's going to be the squad sergeant (hence the vox and blue aquila badge).
It certainly is easier to make a bridle held by both hands

I am making ten of them. When I finished the first one, I should probably have said "9 more models"
Any way here are three more raiders:



This unfortunate guy's legs were too tight to be used on stead, so I made instead a wounded soldier, who left the wolf to fight on it's own and is probably about to die.


Nothing particular about this model. It looks very similar to my first one.


So far this model is my favorite. I had lot of fun painting the ork's head and it proves again, that buying assault on the Black Reach box was not a waste.

A friend of mne gave me some spare spears from fantasy, so I could give them to my riders. They look a lot better now.

these models turned out very well! it takes some balls to risk the time and money for conversions like this, knowing that its possible to end up with a horrific plastic train wreck.
