WW1 German Asia Corps 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.

Perry Miniatures WW2 "Luke Warm in Cairo" character set.

Back in the summer of 2016 I painted up this set for Michael Perry. I didn't post any images of them at the time as the set was not yet on the market. I forgot all about them. I discovered today that the set is now available and that Michael has posted the above image on their website. I searched about in my photo archive for my original images of these figures, but I couldn't locate them, so here is Michael's photo of the painted set. Cheers!
