Thanks
There isn´t much work really..it´s just a case of coming up with an idea and doing it.
There´s a set of Romans, the italeri ones (ceaser period) and I got 20 conversions from one pose, no cutting, just twisting an arm or head. The other pose the same.

It is similar to Little John, when he was fighting with Robin Hood. Wow!

To change them..
Some plastics don´t need warming...they can be twisted, altered with a bit of gentle force..adter you have done it a few times you will know how far you can go before a head or arm will rip off.
The Robinhood plastic is good for this. This set is over 30 years old and hasn´t suffered from plastic decay like a lot of other Airfix sets.
For harder plastic, Italeri, Zvezda etc you need a pair of pliers. Just wrap the head (or whatever) in a cloth then make a sandwhich effect with the pliers around the cloth and twist. Without the cloth risks deforming the plastic.

Really good Paul! and so simple conversions!
I use some now for plastic figs (after I tried on the ITALERI's Teutonics: it's quite easy to twisted a head or an arm.... and changing a head is not difficult too!)
But your demonstration is spectacular!

The original fig is a boring one...not a bad pose but not very exciting...but it is good for a lot of other things. This is for me, one of the fun things with figs..the making new and converting.

Yes converting is a lot of fun, actually Valdemar miniatures are made with all the seperate accessories to allow this easy. Hope that you find that this is a good idea?
