Black Numenorean Banner Bearer
Here are a couple of pics of my new Black Numenorean Banner Bearer that I converted from a Black Numenorean Warrior. I cut the shield of his left arm and tried to smooth out the back of the arm a bit and texture it slightly with Green Stuff. Not in the picture, but it didn't really turn out that great. I cut the sword off at the hilt from his right hand, and cut off the pommel of the sword and glued it to his left hand. I sawed his right hand almost off, and then bent it outward to be able to hold the banner straight up and down (mostly). I filled in the gap in his wrist with Green Stuff. I used the banner that was left over from a box of Morgul Knights and glued that in place. For painting, I used my standard Black Numenorean paint scheme: black primer, Boltgun Metal on the armor and sword with a Devlan Mud wash and Bleached Bone for the exposed skin. For the banner, Blood Red on the pennants, bleached bone with a Thraka Green wash on the emblems (not sure if it's what I had in mind, but wanted to try it), Chainmail on the moon/sickle at the top and Scorched Brown for the staff. I did add a light highlight/drybrush of Adeptus Battle Grey to the black areas to hopefully add a little more definition.
Anyway, hope you enjoy :)
