Following a couple of posts on these small Poundland figures (100 for £1), I have started some new conversions – very much still Work in Progress (WIP).
The aim using tissue paper and PVA glue is to make full length robes and once painted white, you have Generican desert warriors.
These were inspired by the Pathans in Donald Featherstone’s Solo Wargaming. The long jezail type rifles and bulky head gear suggest the weapons and dress of these mountain and desert warriors.
Some of the figures were converted using ordinary kitchen towel, but this is a bit bulky and textured. I will also try ModRoc next time. Once fully dry I will paint skin tones, weapons, shoes etc.
Simple shields from coffee stirrers or bronze coloured drawing pins will add greatly to the dancing figures with arms upraised. A touch of the Mahdist as well …
