IntroductionBack in December last, I showed some of my Studio Miniatures 28mm plastic zombies. I also described a survivor that I'd converted from one of the same models. Well, I've continued to experiment; here are 2 more survivors and a further zombie.
ScottHasslefree "Kev" figure. Because of the way that the gun arm was sculpted, I had to remodel the (plastic) supporting arm quite a bit to make things fit. Indeed, Scott's left arm is a bit longer than his right arm - though this is only noticeable from certain viewing angles.
IsaacWestwind bikers. Again, the left arm had to be repositioned quite a bit to make it fit. The added metal parts are clearly a bit chunkier than the plastic body, so Isaac looks rather top heavy.
"Traffic Cone" Zombie
My final thought: I've spent a lot of effort on these (bah!) but ended up with some unique models, very cheaply (yay!). Of course, if I'd been just a little more patient then I believe that Wargames Factory are now about to ship or are already shipping a set of plastic, multi-part survivors. Perhaps converting models like this is not needed after all...
[Update: now that the Wargames Factory survivors are available (Men and Women), I've done some further conversion work here: http://colgar6.blogspot.com/2013/09/wargames-factory-conversions.html ]
