Hi guys

I now have a new laptop, so I will resume posting, though I am thinking of posting less of my commissions (restricting to only posting new subjects)

I have wanted to do a post apoc project for a long time, I have a collection in 2 scales 15mm and 1/72, but due to matchbox/hotwheels 1/72 is a better option, so I have started converting figures, I want to cover all sub genres, road warrior, stalker, zombie apoc, near future asymetric war fare, here are some zombie survivor types, my next post will be converted stalker types, as is always the way, after I worked on these Dark Alliance released 4 boxes of figs Stalkers 1 and 2, red necks and survivors, I have ordered all these boxes and will do a review when they arrive.

Hi guys



24 Stalker conversions for my post apoc project, (I have Dark Alliance Stalkers sets 1 and 2 on order) but had made these before I even knew about those sets, anyway, more the merrier, these are a mix of a few different sets, WWII, modern Russians, and lots of putty.

Looking good Gunner!

How'd you go with converting the soft plastics in 1/72? Some look like the harder and easier to use plastics often used with 28mm and they'd be ok, but how'd you go with the softer ones? Especially interested in how they paint, the anicents I've done in the past always suffered from flaky paint syndrome :(

I'll look forward to future installments

cheers,

Tas.

Welcome back!

A bit of work with those conversions! Did you ‘pin’ parts like the heads and arms for extra strength? This topics not my cup of tea but I appreciate the work that’s gone in here to get such good looking figures!

Cheers
