These are the elf spearmen from the BOFA. I use them for the Woodland Realm elves along with Thranduil.

Added shields to spearmen and converted the spears into elven two-handed swords on two of the spearmen.

The shields were easy to do. Just find a shield you like. Print on heavy weight card stock with laser or inkjet. Make sure to print the back side of the paper with block of gray with noise added for texture.
cut out with scissors or Exacto. Crease the shield down the center for depth. Gel glue into place. May need to paint/marker the edges to get rid of any white from the paper....

The conversion to spears was a little trickier. Heat a pair of flat surface pliers (no pattern on compression side)and squeeze the spear with all your might and blow on it to cool. Once cooled sufficiently,
the spear will now be flattened. Trim off the bottom of the spear. Trim the sword with Exacto to shape. Prime and paint.

Came out looking pretty decent.

I am working on some Gundabad orc shields now. Will post when finished.

Ares should make The Essential Edition with all of your ideas and all expansions painted even if it will cost a $1000 it will sold out.
