Pretty new to Kings of war but have assembled a pretty decent sized army of Man force. I am looking to add a wizard on a pegasus but am having a hard time finding anything suitable that looks good, any suggestions?
tricky, you can find plenty of pegasi but you will probably have to find a rider.
I like this sphinx as a peg mage mind you
You’ll probably need to convert something. The only wizz on peg model I can remember is the Balthazar Gelt model (beautiful peg, awful wiz) and getting a couple of these will turn pricy quickly as it’s discontinued.
Maybe someone will sell a recast of these? (And if so, i’d be interested in a couple)
Otherwise, you’ll be cheapest off using fireforge pegasus knights with a converted wizard. (Looking at the sprues, you’ll probably only need another weapon hand and head.)
Edit: That said, it might be a good addition to Mantic’s own line, as quite a few armies use pegasi. (forces of nature, kingdoms of men, league of rhordia). I’d fully support Mantic if the cast is somewhat nice and semi-affordable. (i.e. not more expensive than the fireforge models)
As for mounted wizards, GW’s Lord of the Rings line has some lovely Gandalfs and Sarumans. I’m particularly fond of this one: https://www.games-workshop.com/en-NL/Gandalf-the-Grey-2019
Sadly, like everyone off GW, it’s ludicrously expensive, but maybe you can find it second hand if you’re not up to dropping that much on a single wizard…
I’m sure there’s a lot of other companies that produce nice wizards, too.
Did you work with these guys? Their stuff looks very good!
Edit: this one too https://www.etsy.com/nl/listing/823775288/mythical-pegasus-winged-horse-dnd?ref=shop_home_active_46&crt=1
I have quite a few of their STLs. They work fine.
thanks for your input guys. I found a fireforge noble on pegasus on ebay foe 15 bucks. Once I get it I will either dig into my old warhammer Fantasy bits boxes and convert or look for something online to stick on top.
I took a look around and haven’t found one of Gelt, but I did find the Bret peg lord’s peg: https://whclub.ru/shop/bretonnian-pegasus-knight/
It also depends on the theme of your army.
I completely agree with a lot of the above comments, but using count-as works great in KoW. These are two ‘wizards on pegs’ for my Eastern/Arab style list.
The Frostgrave wizard sets (they do one male, one female - both with 8 models) are an excellent source of extras etc and are very useful kit
Sceleris- I love your take on wizards on a Pegasus! I’ve got the fireforge Pegasus knights and while being pretty decent miniatures, the flying bases are absolutely useless and bend, leaving the models at some crazy angles. This is something I only found out having glued them in and am now looking at solutions to correct
What I’d do in your situation is cut the flying base off then try and glue/pin the pegasus to a piece of scenery on the base?
This was an example with one of the gw pegs.
I love that. Good idea. I was just going to buy a see through plastic thing, but I’ll either completely steal the treasure chest idea or , as you say, use another random piece of scenery
