WW1 German Asia Korps conversions.


There is a perfectly serviceable range of WW1 German Asia Corps figures produced by Brigade Games. However, all have been sculpted wearing the peaked cap and when the brief arrived to paint up some troops wearing a mixture of peaked caps and tropical helmets it was time to do some Frankenstein headswaps and some greenstuff additions.
 
 
 
 
This group of ten figures come from a range of manufacturers. The officer is a Great War Miniatures figure with no additions, just a suitable paint scheme. There are figures from Mutton Chop, Forgotten Front, Brigade Games and Pulp Figures with headswaps that come from the Woodbine Designs French Foreign Legion and British Soft Caps head packs. There are also a couple of plastic Perry heads in there from their Second Afghan War box.

It might seem like excessive work, but doing this adds some variety to those figures already commercially available. There are a handful of command figures to come in due course.

Beautifully done Mark, you would never know that they were from so many different manufactures, such is your skill.

God bless you, Guv. Actually I leave them out on the workbench overnight and at midnight a group of elves turn up and leave them painted and complete for me to find the following morning.

They're all wonderful but the officer is truly spectacular with those red turn backs. Lovely work!
