I should probably link to my blog with previously painted figures too: https://weirdworldwar2.blogspot.com/?m=1

Or my thread for them on this forum: https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=131106.0

The new officer is nice, I like the pose, but he needs an Mp-40 too as he is wearing the magazine pouches for it.

We're going to pretend he's hiding that under his coat.  ;)

Now, this keeps coming back to nag at me and I *could* try to cut it off and replace it with a pistolholster instead, but it's going to be fiddly to do and blood might get spilled, so I'd like to see what the general idea is on this.

You do not need to remove it entirely, just greenstuff it into a more general looking bag (maybe remove some parts to avoid it being too big).

Actually that might be a good suggestion I can work with. Thanks ! :)

Or -in case you really want him to be equipped with an SMG too- you can just put the Mp-40 onto his base as if he just dropped it or put it down.

Not a bad idea, but I don't really want him to be equipped with that, as the original character reference only had a pistol and the blades. So a bag/pouch it is.

Another kitbash to come out of my session using the Pulp War 35 headsprue is this Baron Zemo (Heinrich Zemo, not the modern day heir), using the hooded head and a German officer body from a Jaguar figures resin set. This is actually my second at building this character as receiving this new body inspired me to decapitate and redo the first session. The set is called "general inspection" and has a German officer in an opulent wool coat, reminiscent of Zemo's heir in the recent marvel show. So in combination with the Pulp War 35 hooded head, I present you the ultimate pulp Nazi overlord! I'm ridiculously pleased with this one although the conversion was a really simple one.

Id be proud too- it looks fantastic! The pose really gives him a suitably arrogant look :)

Wonderful and inspiring thread :D The fuzzy werewolf heads give them such a great late 80's b-movie vibe,  I could totally see them in an old Corman flick.

After Project Ragna Rok  that would bring Hellboy into this world got thwarted by the Allies, the Thule Society wanted to make a second attempt to contact Eldritch powers. They sent General Klaus Werner von Krupt, present during the first attempt. They thought they could do it without Rasputin. They thought wrong.

In a way, the ritual was successful and for the barest flicker of a second, they made contact with an otherworldly plane of existence. Nobody knows exactly who or what reached out into our world and touched the minds of the Thule members who were there. All we know is that that brief ephemeral touch warped them, mind and body, and burned away what little shreds of humanity they had left...

This is one of the poor soldiers who was present. This conversion used all bits I had lying around, an unidentified 1/35 resin German body and some bits from a plastic GW nurgle demon sprue. The nurgle heads and arms are a perfect size for 1/35. I still need to fill a few gaps on this, especially the back of the head, but it's pretty clear what it'll look like
