Upcoming knights replacement
I'm in a Lord of the Rings mood. So, I've set out to try and convert the knights team to the forces of Gondor. All items are based in some form on objects in the film, with some modification to get them to fit with current models. This is still in very early days, but the image should give you an idea of what I'm doing.

The player skins are very basic at this point: in theory the end knight won't look too much like this one. My plan is to try and amalgamate the standard Gondor soldier (for the armour) with Pippin's Gondor uniform (for the mantle on top of the armour). Unfortunately I lack the modelling skills to do the helmet, so you'll just have to put up with the original. I'm planning on adapting the archer to as closely resemble Gondor's Rangers (ie Faramir) as best I can, although I've not started it yet. As you can see in the image, a shield will be included, along with banners and flags.
If I can make the berserker look good, I may do a Rohan version for the Vikings afterwards. As for the pirates, that's a different matter, they are too far removed from the Middle-earth legendarium to be easily converted to a Middle-earth race without substantial modelling.
