Getting ready for next month's Atlanta Show, I moved this figure to the front of my workbench. This is a conversion of an Andrea 54mm German Stormtrooper from the Great War. I replaced the kit supplied head and helmet with one from Scale Link. I had to carve away some straps from the front of the torso and do some putty work as the stock kit was designed to have the gasmask hanging on the front of the soldier and not wearing it. I also replaced the figure's right hand with a different one to which I added a grenade. He is currently primed and awaiting undercoating and then the final application of oils.

Next up on my workbench is this 120mm figure, sculpted by Maurice Corry.  The figure represents an officer of the Rifle Brigade during the Crimean War.  Uniform is green with black braiding.
