And once more I've something vaguely trivial and annoying to suggest...
I recently purchased LR 19 in that wonderful clearance sale - on top of several examples of LR 21 (Watcher At Sarn Ford - the Ranger guy), and LR 36 (Glorfindel). All three miniatures and presumably others have detachable cloaks. This is a minor inconvienience for some...but a boon for converters.
Cloaks are an absolute curse to do correctly in green stuff/modelling putty. Neither I, nor my wife who is a trained potter and sculptress, can make decent cloaks with green modelling putty. Just don't tell her I said that.
I even tried making a little mould to help me shape the putty, but it doesn't work very well.
What would solve my problem immensely would be if mithril released a pack of cloaks of the L19, LR21 and LR 36 examples for converters, ala the wonderful Weapons Pack for the clearance sale.
Another trick that sort of works is to use a Prince August mould and put a flattened piece of modelling putty in there and then ease it out a while later. The main problem with that being the figure with the most suitable mould (the High Elf Captain), I don't have yet. Have the figure, but not the mould
