Bloodthirster conversion

Post by Geradox » Tue Apr 11, 2017 9:08 am

So I was thinking of working on conversion to make a balrog into a converted blood thirster cause they look cool ok. But I haven't bought it yet and I can't find any picture having a thirster next to a balrog but is the balrog about the same size as a thirster or is it way too "small" to be used as the base model of a conversion work?

Bloodthirsters are inspired by D&D Balors which are in turn a rip off of the Tolkien's Balrogs. So, I think it's a very legitimate conversion project. However, I don't own any so I can't really say anything about its size. However, what I can deduce is that since the models appeared much before the new plastic Bloodthristers, I suspect that the Balrog miniature might be only slightly bigger than the older Bloodthirsters and smaller than the new ones. But it's speculative since they might have tried to make it in the scale that is seen in the Fellowship of the Ring movie. I think the price and base size might give you a good indication of its size.

Found a size comparison photo between a Balrog and belakor here

And against a space marine and dreadnought here

That gives you a pretty good idea of the size I think
