I recognized Silent Invaders Native Americans right off the bat. Versatile little buggers aren't they.

Drat and blast .... my ploy to paint solely from my F&IW pile has been uncovered!  No repeats though, these ones are also previously unseen, all by Perry though I cut muskets out of two to stick with the 'at the earths core' theme.  ;)

Lovely painting on Temudjin00's entry.   :)

Great conversion job. I would have never guessed that they had been armed with anything other than bows.

Thanks Rob but I ought clarify that they were always armed with bows though two had additionally carried muskets.  The figure in the grey leggings had a musket slung over his right shoulder and the one who is kneeling with a bare-chest had a musket propped over his left foot, while both had also carried powder horns.  It was these that were cut out and so it wasn't as grand a conversion as swapping a 'firing' musket for a bow: my apologies if I gave the wrong impression.  :)

That's my take on a giant anaconda.  It started off as one of those cheap floppy black rubbery snakes from the pocket money section of a toy shop.  It was about twice the length and flat on the ground whereas I wanted something more compact and in a raised pose.  I cut out the sections I needed to create the curve and rise and then reconnected them with pins, superglue and greenstuff.  Gave it a coat of superglue to seal the rubbery plastic before undercoating, then a new paintjob.

I would have never thought the rubber toys would work with superglue. I usually use the plastic animals that come in a bag.
