Converting PP LW Germans
« on: December 11, 2020, 06:05:22 PM »
There is a shortage of any 15mm figures in the winter smocks so I took greenstuff to the LW German range and also did a block of headswaps for a force to use in a series of games based in Hungary 1945 as part of the Spring Awakening Offensive.  I have now gone and done some more conversions to give some the winterhosen 43 trousers as well.

Next batch this time with winter trousers.  Also took a dremel to the greatcoat wire team to give me more winter uniformed options.

They look great! I have never tried something more involved than a head swap, but would love to try my hand with a similar project.

I too have only done the odd head swap and added a few packpacks to ACW stuff.

Well done.

I like the winter camo as well, good technique of detail and scale to make it look correct.
What rules do you use ? As the figures seemed to be singular based ?

I use the Battlegroup rule set for a lot of my games.

Yes I play that in 20mm, to be honest and without my Bias hat on. I do prefer PBI V3 and beyond as my WW2 game of choice. Especially after we found It does scale up, with figure sizes and using bigger tables.
Do you play with the same scale distance as 20mm on the board ?
Maybe in 15mm with the scale ranges and the 6 x 4 board it might play better ?

I play it as written. 
15mm on a 6x4 and scenario based games as the norm.  I used to play a lot of PBI but as I moved around a lot it was a case of playing what I found.
