LOTR - Angmar Spectre & Moria Bat Swarm

This spectre conversion was made using a knight of Numenor and a 40k skull that came free with a terminator in White Dwarf. Green stuff sealed up a bullet hole in his forehead and I added some hair to help the skull fuse with the body more seamlessly. I also tried some NMM on his sword and shin guards. I could have gone further with bleached bone highlights on the figure and more white on the metal but you know yourself, sometimes if you push it too far it ruins everything.

Reaper Bat Swarm, dry brushed codex grey and white. Bats where glazed with a mix of Scorched Brown and Chaos Black which was more on the black side than brown. A light glaze of scorched brown was done on the bats body. I tired some flesh colour on the face and ears but it didn't work out. The stones where painted with Codex Grey.

Looks good! Much like the Shade, I'm really liking what you did with the spectre!

What colours did you do for the warg? I've done some wargs up in the past; and though I was quite pleased with the results, I still remember how long they took me to do. How involved was your process for them?

imaginarywars; Thanks, the specter practically made itself. if you look under his teeth you will notice a fold which is apart of the skull but for luck it appears to be apart of his attire. I think that little part was the axis for the entire conversion, it made the skull fit perfectly with the body.

For the Wargs I used; Chaos Black, Codex Grey, Skull White, Scorched Brown, Bubonic Brown, Desert Yellow, Bleached Bone and Badab Black. As for the process, I thought if I do a post (Painting Wargs) with some pictures it would help me explain it better.
