Pegasus make some 1/48 plastic figures sets, I bought the californian gold miners set
the figures are about 37mm tall, so just usable with 40mm. The poses are very good and I did some conversions to provide some figures for camps and work parties . The standing figures were placed on a some 2mm cardboard to get their height up a bit and then based.
The aim was to use as many figures as possible with minimal change,
- swapped all heads with Sash&Sabre ones
- removed some 'modern' detail
- altered the lower leg and footwear
- a bit of arm re-positioning
- some shirt collars added where needed
The finished conversions - two chaps to sit round a camp fire
Man rolling finished empty gabion (plastic Renedra one ), and man making a gabion...
The standing figures, using the original poses
The figures finished off and painted ..
Good idea. I like the guy weaving the gabion best.ReplyDelete
Splendid...simply splendid. You continue to show great creativity and talent in making these conversions. Will the have any combat function on the battlefield like making entrenching go faster or being present to tunnel under an enemy?ReplyDelete
The men at work (picks, shovels etc), will be used for the making of field works in games, if killed or wounded they will have to replaced or work will slow down.Delete
