Earnur/Captain of Gondor Conversion WiP

I've had an extra Aragorn, King Elessar head laying around for a while since I made my mounted Elendil conversion (Elendil & Isildur) and I have been wondering what to do with it. Another problem I have had for a while is that my Dweller in the Dark has tipped over (forward leaning pose isn't balanced) and I've been thinking of a way to prop him up that doesn't look to cheesy or contrived. My current thought is that I could take a spear and try to find a way to make it look like the spear is stuck into the critter and tactfully serves as a prop to keep him upright. In search of a spear, one of my plastic Warriors of Minas Tirith sacrificed his hand holding a spear for the greater glory of my miniature collection (he was already missing his head thanks to my Knight of the White Tower conversion, so it didn't bother him too much). A plastic Warrior of Numenor (whom I somehow lost his shield, so have not basecoated or painted) lost his hand holding his sword, and the various components have been grafted onto the Warrior of Minas Tirith in a Frankensteinly fasion.

I am thinking he might make a good representation of Earnur, last King of Gondor, or some other random Captain of Minas Tirith. This may not progress terribly quickly, but will try to update as progress occurs.
