I'm afraid that's right. A friend got the game, we played it... and I liked it! Can you believe that? Yeah, I'm shocked too, but it happened.
Anyway, my pal commissioned me to convert & paint his minis. I've just finished the first warband, the Sigmarite whatevertheirnameis. The instructions I received were more or less to make them look like Knights of the White Wolf, but under this AoS prism. That's good, for I can still paint new AoS minis and present them on a oldschool blog :D
Well, let's get into bussiness. First thing I had to do was getting rid of all those lions and transform them into wolves.
|Or Paw Patrol characters, whatever I could get
|Great. Now you're singing Paw Patrol too
|Of course Knights of the White Wolf wear fur cloaks
|Well, yes, the three of them needed cloaks
Now for additional details. The shield. That large shield with a hammer. Nope. I had this banner in mind...
So I tried this...
|Yes, 'tried' is the key word
|And kept trying...
|At least it looks like a nightmarish Blanche design
|This will have to work
In the end this is what I got for the boss.
|That's a converted Thunder Hammer from the Grey Knights Terminator kit
About the other two guys, I was certainly determined to not use the original masks, but bare heads. Wonderful Statuesque Miniatures provided me the solution I needed...
|That's an old Sisters of Sigmar shield from Mordheim
|And that's a synthetic fur cloak. Don't worry, PETA
|WHFB Empire head. Suspiciously resembling Chuck Norris
|In his stylish fake cloak
Now to the brushes! Knights of the White Wolf means metal and red...
|... so let's stick to that idea
|You better make this idea work
|Meh, I wanted to look like Chuck Norris
|Checkers. You can do whatever you please as long as you paint checkers
Let's see the final result:
|Is that... Is taht a decent pic?
|Yay, look at my shield
|Your shield? That was meant for me!
|Now I have a hammer which is bigger than my shield!
|You call taht a hammer? This is a hammer.
|Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac. Age of Sigmar version
|Don't forget the wolf fur cloaks
Well, so this is my first step into Shadespire. I of course still have to convert and paint the other warband. But that's not all! In fact I have to confess that I liked the game. I liked it so much... that I've bought it too. So damn right, I will have to convert and paint another full set of the thing.
Do I have a problem, doctor?
