Before I start to abuse more miniatures, maybe it would be nice to post some pics of the subjects before undergoing the knife:
This is a Langton deceres, which is destined to become a zírunel.
Two pics of a goblin miniature, 15mm in size, that will supply the basis of a new prow for the zírunel. At first glance, it does look a little large for a 1/1200 ship, but I intend to blend the head into the ship structure somewhat. Hopefully the conversion will look something close to OK once the knife is set down!
Also up for consideration are a few more add-ons, such as towers, and a decision on nationality - is this a Tsolyáni vessel, or is it Mu'ugalavyáni? Blue, or red?
