Something that I found while doing a similar project (I was doing some 1/35 figures for gaming the Eurasian Wars from the Draka books) is that most of the Space Marine and Catachan heads from Games Workshop work with 1/35 minis. And heads and weapons  ;D

I can't find my pictures, but here are some that I had saved on my Photobucket for inspiration:

I was using Dragon, Tamiya and IMC figures. Still have them somewhere...

@ Predatorpt - those minis are really cool :-)...I have a small amount of GW stuff that I am already using, and you are right, some of that stuff fits perfectly for 1/35 scale.

Based on the "Lara" model from DUST tactics, I decided to remodel one of my M.a.K. plastic battle-suits to look like her. But I wanted her to be british so Lady Laura Smyth was born, and is still being worked on atm. She will be in charge of a small Heavy infantry squad.

Hope you like

Lovely! Where are the arms from?

Love the Full Metal Bitch line on the shield.

Thanks White Knight - The arms are GW Space marine power arms, the "guns" are GW scout shotguns and the shields are self made with plastic sheet. The ammo belts are causing me problems as they are made of resin and keep breaking, and a few decals are missing.

Way cooler than the "real" Lara from Dust. Loving your conversions!

Totally agree, especially the old Zombie stuff fits nice for 1:35  ;)

Like your project, Not yet dead, nice conversions so far.
Started something similar a few years ago, but have never finished it.

Will follow with interest  :)

I´m calling Lady Laura Smyth now finished....I changed the idea of ammo belts to ammo chutes because the resin style belts were not not good enough to bend them how I wanted it.

I have now started a second battlesuit that will be Harley Quinn with her baseball, so this now confirms that this unit will be all female...maybe Ellen Ripley, Sarah Conner or Natasha Romanoff will follow.

Ok, here is the WIP of the next battlesuit - Harley Quinn (as shown in the Film Suizide Squad).

I still have lots to do....

Yeah, I have seen those  :)...but I will not be doing any russians atm, but the odd russian zombie wouldn´t be bad.

Inbetween my Battlesuit projekt I have been working on this Nazi-Vampire in 1/35. (had to black out the "Forbidden sign", which has been burnt into it´s skin).

Body is from a Wastelander mini from Not Yet Dead Miniatures, the head is an old Skaven from GW and the wings are from a "Schleich" toy Bat. the rest is green stuff.
