Tramp steamer crew: Finished

Well, holy cow, it only took 24 hours to complete the painting of my crew. I'm happy with them. I'll have to dig my ship out and take some scenery shots later.

Here we have a young Chinese fellow carrying a crate and the ship's cook. The chinese figure is unconverted and comes from the archeologist pack from Copplestone's Back of Beyond range. The cook is from (yes, again) the Street Tough's pack.

I've gotten a lot of mileage out of Copplestone's set of Street Toughs; Here are a few pics of all the conversions I've made with the set. To the far left of each photo is the original, unconverted figure.


  1. I am always inspired by your stuff, especailly this pulp stuff. I am facinated to see how a lick a paint and a bit of sculpting can make the same basic min so completly diferent. Keep it up, and show me more... I can't wait!

  2. Thanks for the compliment, Rob.
    I'm certainly enjoying the challenge of seeing what minor sculpting I can do to make a new figure.

    Some day, I'll learn to sculpt a whole figure from the ground up.

  3. Those are fantastic! I am just amazed at the different figures you were able to create from such a small number of originals. Very inspirational!
