Latest conversion done
« on: May 24, 2009, 10:50:48 AM »
I got inspired by all the "latest..." posts in this forum. Please join me on this one. I convert many of the minis I paint and I will post them as replies to this post. Here comes the first one - The Mad Baron with a gun! (The conversion went better than the paintjob...:)

Well, this is my latest conversion, from last week's LPL. Ain't much of one, though. Just a headswap, which is about as much as my skills run to...





My Gallipoli Tommy is Soapy's Combat Stress charity figure, given a new head, also by Soapy. Add a Copplestone SMLE and another soapy head with the actual head gouged out to leave just the helmet, and voila... We have this chap at Suvla Bay saying "Goodbye, old chum" to his comrade.

The original:





Easy job. Absolute child's play.
Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...

That´s a nice one. I was wondering how people would use this figure. Very nice setup!

Nice work with the ninjas. When ninja become obsolete? You don´t need much imagination to believe in "WW2 Ninja Special Forces"  ;D

I took the Anglian Nationalist Cavalry Command officer (center figure), swapped a head and changed the right hand from a pistol to a sword...

As posted on the weird war II forum.
West Wind body, with a modified west wind separate gasmask head (german fieldcap modified to a japanese fieldcap).
Leather straps to replace the ropes that are attached to the armourplates.
