I went and converted a bunch of LOTR Corsairs of Umbar for use in Legends of the High Seas. Here are some of them:

Those are pretty sharp. Always nice to see good conversions.

Well done – I suspected that the Corsairs would convert well. Is it mostly just a Pirate paint job + a few pistols & hats, or is there more conversion work hidden under the paint?

Those are nice, funny I was just thinking about doing this. LotR is one of my favorite games, I like what you did. Do you happen to belong to the LotHS yahoo group? I'm sure some of the folks would like to see this.

I used Empire militia during writing & playtesting of LotHS, now with these there is another GW product that folks can do if they don't want to use other companies stuff.

Keep up the great work…

Are they plastics?

Yes they are from the New LotR Corsair box set, $25.00 USD bucks for 24 figures I think…

What guns and hats did you use?

jweaver28 Mar 2008 1:31 p.m. PST

Yup, are the guns from GW plastic sprues maybe?

Thanks for the comments.
Most of the mods are from GW Mordhiem sprues. The original figures were LOTR Corsairs of Umbar (the plastic ones)
