Sometimes there are things you want but that nobody makes. Sometimes you just want variety.
I had some 'visions' in my head of a Dictator and his staff, but nobody made them. I also wanted to look a bit farther afield to see if I could integrate unexpected miniatures into my games.
Did I succeed? You be the judge.
I liked the Barbarians range, but I don't 'do' fantasy. I figured I'd try a few for CoZo, and I think they turned out well.
I removed his knife, and reshaped his axe. I rearmed him with an uzi, and dressed him in a denim vest.
Base figure Barbarian 0112
I removed this figure's sword & shield, and replaced them with a pistol & prybar. I also added a denim vest pattrned after those on the Bikers.
Base figure Barbarian 0090
I removed his bow and gave him pistols. I added a baseball cap and sunglasses.
Base figure Barbarian 0103
I removed his bow, and gave him a knife, uzi, and sunglasses. 2 pistols would have worked, too.
Base figure Barbarian 0104
I replaced his sword with a chainsaw. It seemed perfect, so I left it.
Base figure Barbarian 0118
Babe with guns
I always felt this figure had good potential, but I never liked the results I got changing her head.
I chose instead to replace her head with one from 0011. I turned it to the side and added longer hair. Her hands were replaced with pistol hands from the command pack.
Base figure 0038
The conversion above left me with a body and a head. I combined them, adding long hair again. Turning the face forward makes a big change.

I wanted a cheerier Dictator to charm the masses: He has a cheery smile, a friendly wave, and he wears his hat at a jaunty angle!
Base figure 0053
Whether he's a gofer, or in charge of crushing the opposition, he is a pefect example of the 'Master Race'... sort of.
I wanted a scrawny, weak, sinister type to be the second in command for the Great Man.
Base figure 0081
Somebody needs to keep track of his appointments!
Her suit had a good line for a 40's-cut uniform. I added the details with milliput, and changed her hair.
Base figure 0011
I trimmed away his shorts, and added uniform details to the figure.
I am not altogether happy with him, as he is so bulky that he looks a bit deformed. The figure doesn't look as 'neckless' as the picture, and his hat isn't askew, honest!
Base figure 0048
Intended as a guard for my Tinpot Dictator, she would enhance any police squad.
I just added the uniform with milliput.
Base figure 0066
Companion to the figure above: I trimmed away any fringes, etc. and added the uniform with milliput.
I cut her gun down into a pistol and replaced her arm so she was in a firing pose.
Base figure 0068
I removed his MAR and repositioned his arms. I then added the MAR slung on his neck. Figure 0011 is also suitable for this conversion.
Base figure 0434
Just a plastic trooper with command arms, but I liked the MAR slung around his neck.
Base figure Plastic Trooper
I never felt 0074 was a good choice for conversions, because his arms are folded. em4's arms changed my mind: These are from the command pack, but I have used the heavy weapons arms as well. They really do change the look of the figure.
The cap is made from milliput.
