Reinforcements Arrived


The miniatures hobby is not dead at ISLP. In fact I continue to support ongoing projects as well as new ones. Among some of the more recent arrivals are the above three boxes of AT-43 TacArms that will be joining forces with my other TacArms miniatures after being converted to 15mm combat walkers. You may recall these walkers from a post done ages ago  where I talked about these conversions, but I've included a quick reference pic just the same.

I have also received several plastic Wargames Factory Saxons which I am converting for use as Vikings. These are receiving some green stuff hair and beard enhancements to make them look a little more Scandinavian and less Anglo-Saxon. I would have ordered actual Viking figs, but they were horribly back-ordered. To help with their conversion, I also picked up a lot of 40 round shields on EBay.

Fun stuff to work on.

  1. I like the AT-43 minis, they'd work really well with all the 15mm sci-fi that's coming out.

  2. I am trying to find the right armaments for them. I took off all the over-sized weapons mounted on their arms.

    I'd like to arm them with some sort of 20mm or 28mm modern weapon with a little scifi drag added. If I could find a 28mm FAMAS or P90 I'd be set.

  3. Great idea using these as 15mm combat walkers. They look excellent if painted up with rust and weathering. You might find some of the Old Crow models 6mm weapons packs are ideal for the weapons (with some work).

  4. I love the AT-43 and have a bunch of TACARMs figs. Dont have any spare or I'd use them for WWW2 German walkers!
