Elf Giant Eagle

Posted by carlosfaro on 02 Jan 2018, 17:25

I am a big fan of all Tolkien universe and many P. Jackson recreations,

Related to that, and Warhammer universe, i was willing to make my own giant 1/72 eagles (with or without riders).

Well.. 1/72 giant eagles are the same as 28mm GIant Eagles :) Not big trobuel here (just finding suitable stuff in ebay, and I was able to find cheap (around 8 eur/eagle) original GW minis from the 90´s

But elf riders is really not so easy.. I got some 15mm demonworld figures wich are very nice elves in faces and torsos.. I just had to make some conversion with Zvezda russian to get a nice 1/72 Wood elf female Eagle Warrior :)


Image


I also prepare some light elfe horsemen.. One of the figure does not even need conversion( legs long) enough) He matches good with 18mm eureka wood elves (almost 1/72 scale..)

Also a fan of Tolkien's universe, but fell for Prince August's Mithril range. 32mm figures. Peter Jackson hadn't started with the movies back in the late 80s/early 90s when I bought the figures. There are a couple of eagles too (maybe too expensive and some quite boring: http://www.mithril.ie/PBSCCatalog.asp?CatID=1863680&BrandID=167465 ). And 32mm should fit the bill just as good as 28mm. :-D Nice to see your work!

Thanks Suso!
Nice suggestions..I know Mithril minis (i bought some at local shop around 100 years ago) but I believed they were extinct! Glad to discover them still Alive in the net! Mostly expensive but maybe I get anything unusual (some eagle action pose,wolves or ents-entings)

Hello, I made some progress on these figures, with some troopers going together with the eagle rider
I could not wait to finish to post some pics :)
I hope you ike them.

Foot elves are also converted form 15mm + strelets normaln legs (they fit so good together)

And maybe you find some "casual" ressemblance between the elve eagle rider girl and Evangeline Lilly -Tauriel :)
