Hi guys,

Been a while, but here is a simple converted Chaos Lord I made the other day:

I like it! :eusa_clap: :::cheers:::

I've accumulated some of the metal chaos figures, and hope to build a small army of them some day.

Very cool conversion. Innovative use of those skull emblems.  :eusa_clap:

Forget the 6'x4' game, focus on the story beyond that. Because fantasy matters.

So in June I painted up some of my Heroes of M&M 3 'Tower' units.









I know the Gremlin skin tone is messy, and I don't feel happy with the Naga, but its something....

I discovered it was easier to place an extra weapon hand in the old chaos knight kits as the shield arms don't fit too well

Yep, exactly what I found above.
Annoying.

Nice idea! I love HoMM3 as well! Your 'Titans' look a bit underwhelming though.  :-D

They are Golems, not Titans. Great idea, Warlord. The Tower was my favourite faction in HOMM3 - indeed, still is, since I still play it from time to time.

Wonderful! I loved HoMM 3, and often thought of doing something like this!

Mea culpa. :engel: The armour/clothing confused me.

Both the Golems and the Titans had a "classical" appearance, but the cingulum (the belt decorated with metal fittings) was specific to the Stone Golems. And, of course, the mud colour (in combination with the metal colour of the one Iron Golem) should have been a give-away. That said, ego te absolvo a peccatis tuis.
