Once again excellent work! Both concerning the conversion and painting part!

I have one slight problem! I can't see the pictures of the WR! Is there a problem or is it just me?

Thanks for the skin color photo. That is of great assistance. The Lord's bowmen conversion is fantastic. I cannot see the Wildrider pictures either.

Seriously, this stuff is inspiring! Just seeing it sends my head spinning with endless conversion possibilities with my own WEs...
Can't think of anything to change, just more pics! :D

Edit: oh, and i can't see the pictures either :confused:.

Although there are some regulation issues with the Lord on Great Stag -as the stag is a beast that can go on if the lord dies- i have to say that the conversion work is simply stunning! I love it!

indeed.. A regular model has no removable rider, too.
The best solution would be, you let your lord never die ;-)

I have thought of something though! As I like your conversion very much and I am thinking of making a lord like yours I thought of this! When One of the Two dies -either it is the stag or the lord- I will make another stag and another lord in mystic-spirit form! Like that the one part departed while the other part still lives in a mystic form to take revenge for the one that was killed! With white blue or white green colours to make some luminous look to it! But I have to work it out better before I go on with that little project!

That's a cool idea, but the only problem is that it is pretty expensive to buy a nother archeon horse and a other Orion model....

The most common (tournament legal) solutions are:
1. Don't bother. If the steed dies, place a regular US1 model in its place and pretend. If the rider dies, just ignore the dude on top.
2. Make an "On Foot" model to represent him without his steed. If the rider dies, keep the model in place and ignore the rider as above.

That's a very "right" solution but I thought of something more complicated to be up to Magnolia's army and it's fluff!

Btw you can't buy an Orion model! It is too big to fit on a 20x20 base! Logically when the Steed dies the lord must fight on a 20x20 base and not on a 50x50!

Really impressive army.
Your GS skills are excellent, the little spites are a great addition.

For your command group, just pretend that they're normal units then you can have the command group included while not actually having to have the command group cost points! :cool:

Amazing work MF! Some really brilliant conversion work on the lord!! The only comment I can make is about the scythe/axe - it seems a bit too unwieldy to have on the back of a mount. Despite this little niggle, the whole model is great

This is by far my favorite army I have seen in the warhammer world. Of all of the various project logs i've looked over this one is the most creative and well executed! I just love the idea and I think it really makes your army unique! (And now i shall steal all your wonderful ideas and make my own ghetto attempt at something similar haha - though i only play with my friend and gf so it won't see the light of day =p)

Being fairly new to warhammer I'm just curious what troops you used to convert your wardancers and glade riders?
Please comment/offer advice on my first ever army. My first army - VC/WE

Wow, I'm glad I wondered over to this part of the forums so I was able to see this. Even if it is a couple months old. Hopefully Magnolia will post some more updates.
