Hello all!

With my first playtest campaign of my Shadow of the Dog Lord Roleplaying Game coming quickly to its close and players almost begging me to run a second after that, I got to thinking about how combat worked in the game. Oh the system was great and all, but some players had a nasty habit of metagame thinking, trying to shoot enemies that were beyond their range or not in their line of sight. So I started using miniatures to help, a mix of Lord of the Rings and D&D models to be exact.

Anyway, I decided that while the LotR models are great, I'd prefer to have miniatures able to represent the actual character from The Shadow of the Dog Lord. So today I began playing around with some bitz I had laying around and made this (please pardon him, he's still just undercoated):



He has, for you perceptive gamers, a base from a plastic LotR Army of the Dead, with his tail from a Warhammer 40K Space Wolf set. He also has part of a 40K wolf skull glued to the front of his helmet over a small green stuff snout. This is because this lad, representing one of Fenrir's soldiers in the country of Dar-Koldor, wears a helmet with a face mask depicting their Lord (the concept art is below):



Now I have 9 more plastic Army of the Dead, all of whom will be converted into soldiers of Dar-Koldor, then I plan on buying another box (or two) and doing the same for them, maybe even a banner bearer or two.

After I have those guys done, I have my eyes set on some models from the Assault Group as soldiers from the western nation of Tar-Koldor, who have a Spanish design to their armor.

Let me know what y'all think. I'll be posting more WIP shots when I get them Very Happy

Cheers,
Fenrir

It looks cool. Do you have a front on shot of the conversion?

Yup, the artwork is my own.

I have already converted two more (for a total of three) and am halfway through painting them. I'll post pics when they're done.

Cheers,
Fenrir
