To the best of my recollection, these next two are the first PP models I ever bought. I didn't know what Warmachine was back then, I was ordering some models and threw in these two just because I thought they looked cool. These two have only minor changes. First off, Kell Bailoch. I made a couple of simple modifications to his rifle to make it look a bit more modern (I styled it after the L42A1). I also left off his sword because it didn't fit the image I had for him: a frontier/outback scout/marksman.
Then there's Laddermore. It's subtle, but I twisted her waist slightly and raised her arm to make the pose look more dynamic, as though she's rearing up to deliver a blow. I also replaced her helmeted head with a bare one, and tried to sculpt hair to match her unmounted model. I didn't like the original lance as it seemed too short and poorly balanced, so I constructed a new one for her. While more traditional, I did incorporate parts from the original. I also "attached" a sword to her belt on her left side, but I didn't actually glue it on to make painting easier. I just hope I haven't lost it...
To my knowledge when a knight loses his horse he usually discards his lance and draws his sword. So I modified her unmounted model to be drawing her sword. I tried to match her armour as best I could when sculpting in missing pieces, and I tried to add something approximating electrical coils to the sword blade.
