Slightly better photos of the finished figures. Now read on.....
Despite the disruption caused by Covid-19, I am continuing to plan and prepare for this year’s games. For the Sevastopol 1942 game I wanted to have some Romanians available and as no specifically Romanian figures are available, a gentle ponder was required.I decided on bodging some mountain troops and used the Hat/Waterloo1815 WW1 Italians as my starting point. I trimmed down the helmets and added Milliput berets. You can find a lot of issues with the result but I purposely kept the figures rather vague as they may be called upon to serve as various other khaki-clad beret wearers. Spaniards and Belgian Chasseurs Ardennais spring to mind.
A bad photo of the finished figures.
Work in progress - the chaps before varnishing.I’m thinking of doing more Romanians - possibly adapting the CTS Italians.
Brian C has taken a different approach, mining his apparently bottomless pit of plastic figures - see also Brian’s post here.
