Very pleased with how these conversions of plastic pound store figures (36mm) have turned out.  https://poundstoreplasticwarriors.wordpress.com/2017/10/22/poundland-desert-warriors-finished/

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures. I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures. Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules. To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...

    1. Thanks Peter – I too think that they will suit a range of periods and hope that there are many more possible conversions in this tiny tub or bag of small pound store figures. Some space figures are underway (pilot figure on show soon) Whilst I was at the PVA Tissue papering and painting stage with these natives I was also thinking this tissue paper moulding would work as snow capes or camo capes on WW2 / Modern figures. Then add some Fimo equipment such as backpacks etc.
