Conversion of a New Casting

Several years ago I bought an odd lot of toy soldier figures and parts. When I got them, there were several heads with different head dresses. While most are 54mm, there were several that seems in the 40mm range. Included is a head wearing a bearskin helmet. I tried this head on some Zinnbride figures, which I thought were a good match. It dawned on me last week that this head might work well with my newest  marching figure. And so a quick decapitation and drilling a hole for the neck, I tried the new head. I think it's a good match and might be making a mold of this figure in the future.
These are some of the converted Zinnbrigade figures.

The new conversion.


  1. They all look absolutely great, Funny Little Wars, indoors ?

  2. I haven't quite figured out where this project is going. I had thought of an outdoor game, but if I was to go out my dog would be outside too, which would make gaming hard. I did find a cavalry figure which I am thinking of using with these figures.
