I did a commissioned skaven war litter quite sometime ago and was left with a whole lot of the new GW storm vermin bits, a model I have really come to like. And their halberds are seriously cool looking blades that I have come up with what I think is a rather ingenious use for, that I will be sharing in future posts on my Warriors of Chaos army. So what to do with the left over bits? Make another.
The warlord on the litter is a rather simple conversion, mostly just a weapon conversion. I used some of the cut off halberds for the guys bearing the litter, just to use up the bits. I will probably shorten up the staff/sticks they are holding. The next time I do this, I would like for the handles to be parallel to the litter platform. The real problem with that is that all of this needs to fit on a 40mm square base.
This is definitely a concept that I plan to revisit when I get back to my orcs and goblins army modeling. I have always loved Nurgle planaquins and this whole war litter concept is cool. So with a little more work, this will be done.
