So the idea here taken from a previous Halfling army was to convert some model chickens into demi gryph knights. The effort to find the models took a couple days and then waiting for them to arrive another week. The bases are cut from 3"x24" wood from hobby lobby which I got 12 bases out of for $2.99. The Rooster and chicken sets were about 6 a piece on ebay and the demi-gryph box was bought for msrp, so all in all more expensive in the long run for these kid conversions, but they are fun.

|The 10 final bases I put cork on, sanded, and added bits to, priming next.|
These images below are the Wip images of the wooden bases with cork glued on them and the chickens with Demi-gryph bits on them, empire bits, and bret armor. Green stuff has been added and used for molding the armor. Three of the demi gryphs have been chopped up and armor, heads, and legs added onto the chicks. Additionally trophy heads, look at the top middle rooster,with chains have been added to each monstrous cavalry rooster. Further conversions will be added to the riders, from battleforge, with green stuff, weapon swaps, and skulls.
