Work in Progress

As we all know, you can never have enough Royal Marines Commandos, and so in line with that we have these latest conversion attempts.

I've always disliked the set this example comes from, but only have a handful of donor figures to choose from. The Airfix figures are a little shorter than their Matchbox counterparts, therefore the latter will have their bases removed, which will help a bit.

Here is the donor pile which, as can be seen, has a few more prone figures than I'd like but we'll see how we get on. I've also decided to experiment with the painting of this next troop, and may include some washes and or highlighting on the final products.


  1. Whoo hoo! These look good mate, mix in a few with helmets eh!!!

  2. Thanks mate, hadn't thought of helmets for these lads but now I think I might just do that.

  3. Those look absolutely great. There are a few nice action poses in the Airfix Commando set, just a pity about the heads and weapons.

    Looking forward to seeing some more of these conversions.

  4. Thanks lads, might take a while these ones though.
