Dwarf rangers WIP

   These are my last twelve rangers that will reinforce my army of Dwarves. As of now, I have 48 dwarf rangers, 2 dwarf ranger heroes and the named character of Drar. I think I am good!

   This time I converted almost all of the twelve rangers. I gave shields to rangers who carry throwing weapons, changed the two-hand axes with spears, erased the straps of their leather vests, changed some hands, added furs on their coats, etc. The Celtic shields, the helmet and the pagan pole are pieces of a Celtic warriors sprue of Warlord games. So, let's start.    

The Hero

   I put the hero on a rock to distinguish him from the rest dwarf rangers. The "rock" is just pieces of balsa wood covered with putty. I gave him also a Celtic warrior's helmet, which is hung from his belt. I used green stuff to add a crown of fur to the helmet. 

   Since I had a Celtic banner pole and I didn't want another dwarf with a flag, I converted the below ranger into the banner bearer.  

   Next are the dwarf rangers, to whom I gave Celtic shields.

He is an ex-two-handed weapon ranger. I switched his right hand with the one of the above banner bearer.

   I switched the upper parts of the two-handed axes with a spearhead of a Rohirrim, or the blades of Orc swords. I also added some furs and gave a Celtic shield to two of the rangers . 

The spearhead is an Orc sword blade.

   Finally, I used green stuff to erase the straps from the leather vests of the four archers, to add some hair and fur to their coats.

   That's it for today! Stay tuned for more!

   Two years ago I bought nineteen second-hand Orcs. My intention was to convert a rhinoceros of the "Schleich toys" to a Great Rhino-beast and for that I needed a crew of ten Orc warriors, nine as archers and one as the driver. After the Rhino was ready, I put the rest nine Orc warriors in a drawer.
   Recently, I decided to paint them and use them as reinforcements! So, I divided them in three groups, one with swords, one with spears and the last one with axes.

Orcs with axes. The warrior in the middle has an axe of a dwarf ranger!

Orcs with spears

   To avoid duplication, I switched the heads of the two warriors that you can see below:

   And the last one is the Orc with a spear of a Minas-Tirith warrior and the shield of a warrior of the Dead.

   That's it for today! Stay tuned for more!

The command team

   If I haven't done any arithmetical error, I have 61 miniatures of "Warriors of Rohan" and 20 miniatures of "Riders of Rohan" but none of them as a warrior, on foot or mounted, of Rohan! Instead, 43 are Dunlending warriors, 4 are Dunlending charioteers, 8 are Dunlending horsemen, 12 are Riders of the dead and 14 are the below Warriors of the Dead.
