    I wanted some armed Indian Holy Men-Sadhus for a game.  No one makes one in 15mm.  Nice ones in 28mm from Indus but that’s it.  I thought I’d convert some Picts and they came out like this.

    You can see the process on my blog.

    I think they look suitably different.

    Nice conversions, and nice idea for a unit. They’re very striking.

    I agree that a bit of putty-pushing on some well-chosen “base” figures can greatly extend the range of figures available for our hobby endeavours. I’ll have to remember to do some “crazy hair dudes” myself at some point.

    Cheers Wouter much appreciated.  As Rhoderic notes above choose your base figure carefully and that’s half the battle.  The first four of these conversions took about 20 minutes to put the green stuff on and I managed variants.
