Feeling nostalgic and working on some British colonial era troops I was inspired by an article by "C. Jones" on modeling the Zulu War with 20mm Airfix figures that I found in an old July 1967 edition of the Airfix magazine.
As per the magazine article I used Airfix WW1 Germans.
I added heads with the pith hemets from the Esci/Italeri British colonial sets, and also used some more recent figures that weren't available when the author wrote his article, a couple of Imex ACW figures and a Revell WW1 German
The cavalry and horse-drawn artillery look like they might be nice future conversions.
Very good conversion! I will use your ideas one time in the future.ReplyDelete

Nice work. Converting figures is half of the fun in this hobby. Thousands of figures but always need something different.
I just bought a load of airfix magazines from the buy and sell ads. All 1960s and 70s. Lots of good figure conversion ideas.
Keep up the good work John. I appreciate it.
Appreciate the comments ! I'm sure you'll enjoy those mags, they're well worth a good re-read anytime.Delete
