While I wait for the putty on the steam tank to dry, I continue to work on two minor conversions for 15mm Lord of the Rings. As you have seen with Aragorn, Faramir and Saruman, I try to go for the Peter Jackson's movies looks as much as it's possible in 15mm. With Khurasan Orcs and Eureka Man-Orcs (a.k.a. Uruk-Hai) and many Viking/Norman/Late Roman miniatures (read: Rohirrim) available, it's not that hard - but sometimes, even if a certain mini is 'close enough', I want to take it even closer.
Legolas is based on the Splintered Light Miniatures Wood Elf Archer (second miniature from the left). His shoulder pads, shoe tops and gloves were trimmed down and replaced with ones made from putty. These still need some corrections, but even with the elven cloak and webbing still lacking, I'm much closer to The Two Towers look I am aiming for.
Gandalf the Grey (as seen in Moria sequence in Fellowship of the Ring) is based on the Chariot Miniatures wizard from WIZ001 pack. I've modified the end of his wizard staff, added a hand with Glamdring in it and replaced the hat so that it would resemble the movie prop more.
