So, I love the new stuff that came out early this year. I bought two boxes of drakes/breakers. I was torn. I never really play breakers but they look so cool. I love playing with drakes tho. So I decided to use all the extra bits from the unassembled breakers with my warriors/longbeards. Make them playable as longbeards or ironbreakers. Wuddya think?

I'm not fully convinced they could pass as Ironbreakers. Maybe if you really emphasise the armour by painting it all in metallics...

Of course, I wouldn't mind playing against an army proxying like that, I just don't think the looks really match. But they sure make great longbeards.

I'll paint them fairly soon here. I think it'll come out looking metallic and armor filled. The arms and shoulder pads are from the ironbreakers and they are full armor. The only non armor spots are the edges of their chain mail pants.

I did something similar with my quarrelers. I love how the new shoulder guards make the old plastics look decent.

It's amazing what a few shoulderpads and some arm swaps will do to a unit! amazing!

Should look even better when they are painted.  Can't wait to see!
