Simple Scifi Conversions

Head swaps and weapons mods have been the bog standard way of making the old into the new since as long as I've been into miniatures. This also applies to putty work in a lot of cases.

The figures below began life as some of Eureka miniatures' excellent Science Fiction World War 2 Germans. I cut their heads off and replaced them with round blobs of putty. Once this cured I applied some green stuff and pushed into into a sort of goggle-eyed, fishy face. The effect of a lip was purely accidental and really is just the end result of pushing the putty down over the substructure, but it worked.


The only other thing I did was cut the obvious magazines off of the guns which gave them more of scifi look.

I think the overall effect is pretty nice.

Thanks for reading,
