A new set of Desert or Ancient Warriors to add to the Desert Warrior Riflemen previously shown here on the blog:
The “penny dreadful” Pound Store figures £1 for 100 (now 80) plastic 36mm figures from Poundland offer great conversion potential.
These spearman are converted from a Rambo-esque machine gunner. Desert robes are added with PVA, tissue paper and paint.
The patterned shields are upholstery pins ordered online from China.
The hands are drilled to take a garden wire pin or shield and ridiculously long spears seemed to work best.
As well as white desert robes, I tried a black robed warrior as well. The modern water bottle becomes a mysterious bottle or dagger and sword hilt
Officer type figures with swords were made from different figures.
More conversions rolling off the painting table on the gaming hex boards in blogposts this week.
