Easy Conversions for Unique Miniatures VIII

Some conversions don't leap out at you. But once you see them they are just so obvious.

I've tried to work with different miniatures, and ones that I thought were not the best for conversions.

I also tried to integrate plastic and metal parts more. On the whole I'm pleased, and I'm very pleased with some pieces.

Base figure

Drone

I wanted a small drone for my troopers/police. I have stats for it (courtesy of Gisby) and hope to get an article about them from him.

Note that although I show it with a trooper, it's painted as a Police drone.

Iit's made from 2 pieces of wire (stand, support & tail and arms) a bit of putty, 3 discs punched from clear plastic. HINT: Drill the centre holes before you punch the discs.

Base figure

I have always liked 0004, and as the only fully-equipped female Trooper in the range she fills a gap. She was never released in North America, and it's a shame. I'm glad I finally did some work with her.
