that it's in the title.
A friend of mine proposed me the following challenge :
Conversion work with that figurine from the new Anglo-saxon Foundry range. Convert this Saxon into a Woodman or a Mountain man.




My answer is a Mountain man cutting wood.

Does the job  8) I suppose with a bit more work you could change the axe into a shotgun or some such  :)

cheers

exact, but the goal of the challenge is to keep our guy in the wood cutting.

thank !
We are far from from Charles Ingalls but i hope we are closer to what did you expect for a mountain man in action. The paint job will give the final touch to this conversion . Buckskin and mocassins ! :D

thanks,
it's take more time to think about the challenge and the way to resolve it than to do the job.  lol or nearly !

When i look a figurine i'll try to think about the possibilities i can get off from the pose, the scuplting and the conversion work and it's difficulties to realize.
The question was ; What can i do with this figurine, "typical" of it historical period to convert it into something completely different.

On the same subject, a second way to procede :

2 new foundry Saxons turned into Mountain men....a few century later on a new continent... lol.



The guys on the left wear a fur cap now and the wood stick sculpted by foundry (?) became a big saw.
The hunter get a Redoubt rifle and a scratchbult knife on his belt.

Light conversion work but a great result. The paint work will give the final touch.

I have always liked the mountain man era.  You do good converting, Pilgrim.  To paraphrase Bearclaw in Jeremiah Johnson.
