The Ride of the Rohirrim Part Four - Captain, Hornblower and Banner Bearers

"Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?"

Here we have my converted Rohan captain, and my mounted Rohan Hornblower. I took the axe from my Eowyn conversion and gave it to handless Rider of Rohan, as well as sculpting some horsehair coming out of his helmet. For the Hornblower, I sculpted a horn and added that to the model, as well as sculpting some horsehair.

The first Banner Bearer (on the left) is the Rider of Rohan with Throwing Spear, with a simple banner sculpted onto the spear (a triangle of Green Stuff, wrapped around the spear). The second Banner Bearer (right) started life as a Rider of Rohan with Bow. The banner was made in the same way as the first, and his right hand was replaced with that of Éowyn's, as she is now headless. The spear which the banner is attached to was originally a spare spear from the Warrior of Minas Tirith, with some Green Stuff added to make it look more like those carried by the Rohirrim (it has been "trimmed" since the photo was taken).

So there we go, four very simple conversions from the Riders of Rohan box set and Green Stuff (plus the spare spear/sword)
