Elector Count: How do you get one dismounted?
« on: January 20, 2005, 11:49:42 PM »
I am just wondering, how do you get an elector count on foot?  I tried the online store on gamesworkshop and couldn't find one.  This goes the same for captains, on foot, or mounted on a horse or pegasus :?:  Also, what do you suggest i should get when i have a 1300 point army?  If someone knows, please replie:-D

MOst people convert they're own.  If you search for Elector count on foot using the search engine, you should get a few topics on this.

Some people use old greatsword models, some use Mordheim Captains.  I converted mine from the knights sprue and the Soldiers of the Empire Sprue...and an axe from a Raul Partha mini.

My Elector count is practically always on foot. To represent him I'm using a classic Reiksguard Footknight. Since they come with full plate armour, they are absolutely brilliant in this role.

Try the War Room for Tacticas on beating Vampire Counts and Beasts of Chaos.  For a Blood Dragon, I recommend the Clarkarias Special

Wizard Lord
Level 4
Van Horstmann's Speculum
Sword of Righteous Steel
White Cloak

Since Blood Dragons MUST issue/accept challanges, then you're all set.  Just charge him and issue the challange.

In a coach?  He can't ride a coach.  You might want to tell your friend that he's breaking the rules...

If you are not using Greatswords, simply taking the GS champion model can be a very easy solution. + you also get a GS Standard Bearer which can act as a BSB. That's 2 Heroes in 1 blister = your most effective dollar/points pursache ever  :)

The mordheim range has loads of suitable models. I use one of the Ostlander Models as a GS champion/captain/EC

Well, I've used a number of Morheim models such as the Ostlanders with Great Weapons or a Reiklander Champion but now I've thought of a conversion with the Valten Exalted on foot.

Hey kaz, do you think the vlad model from reaper mini would work as an elector count of middenhein on foot?(not boris)  Or should i use someone else from that site.  Also kulgan, nice advice with the greatsword blister.
