Before I Got Side tracked

 So before all this ebay stuff popped up I was planning a new mortar team.
 I did one some time ago using a Musketeer figure as the mortar man, His right hand had to be changed and was made up of 3 pieces.
 This was ok and looks very good, but I wanted to do better. These 2 are my Mk 2 mortar team.
 Both are Artizan partisan figures the mortar and bombs are from Assault Group. The work took about half an hour and the figures look very good.  I now need to find a 3rd figure for the crew, so I'm going to have a good dig through the Empress figures I've just got.

Finished Figures and some luck on Ebay

2 Artizan policemen
 So I've finished the 2 figures I was converting alone with some Artizan policemen.
Finished figure
 I think the rifleman has come out very well, the other figure is good as well but I can't get a good picture of him.
First of my ebay winnings.
 I've also had some luck with ebay, winning 138 Empress figures for £150 in 6 or 7 lots. This should mean I have enough figures for my converted platoon and a lot left over. I've also ordered 40 British helmets and 10 Tommy guns.
2 converted figures.
My plan is to do head/hat/helmet conversions and some weapon conversions as well and then sell then in 10 man sections or as weapons teams. Of the above figures I'm going to keep the rifleman and sell the BAR armed figure.

Next Figures

 So my long term plan has been to have a platoon of all converted figures. As I've just sold some of my older figures, I though I'd better get on with it.

 These 2 are Artizan I've used before, but I like them so here they are a second time. One has had just a rifle change, the other a helmet and rifle change.
More photo's when there finished, also some police I got at the same time.

A Gun For Doug

 This gun I did for Doug to use at the last Hereford game put on by Giles. The gun is from Warlord and the crew from Empress.
 It did very well keeping back the BUF.
