Elendil & Isildur

I finally got around to painting my Isildur Foot & Mounted models to go along with my painted Elendil. Also, I finished my conversion project for a mounted Elendil model. I took an extra mounted "Aragorn, King Elessar" model, swapped the heads from a spare Elendil model, as well as removing the wing shaped thigh armor (if that is the correct term?) and gluing them onto the Elessar model. It isn't an exact match of course, (missing the massive shoulder plates and the design of the chest armor is different, among other things) but I figure it is close enough for my purposes (and after all, they are related, and it is the same sword ;) ) As for the headless Elendil model, I glued a Warrior of Minas Tirith's head onto his body and used green stuff to smooth out the spots where the armor plates I cut off were. Borrowing an idea from BilboOfTheWhiteTower, I plan to use him as a Knight of the White Tower, since I have the old Minas Tirith Command box set (with hornblower, captain and banner bearer) and didn't feel like spending $40 for one model. Hope you enjoy :)
