i call them Bones,and about 30 of these off the peg things came in a job lot i had bought on
E Bay a year or so ago. Well it was the other rare toy figures that i was interested in. However i hate waste even though having no real interest in them,but as things turned out i converted them by cutting and burning the arms into other flaming positions.
The Archers interested me most because i saw many a converted pose possible and so set to stringing the wire through the base. Of course the wire went through the base next to the foot and was wound around a small stone and finally fixed in place with Super Glue.
The Bones seem quite white,but_______
hopefully as they now rattle upon the wind ,colour wise that is,they look better in this final scene. I moved arms,and made helmets with Green Stuff,and added P V A Glue onto them, the shields and swords then poured kiln dried sand onto them. i wanted to create corrosion caused by two or more metals reacting with one another over a long period. i guess it is the Engineer still deeply inbedded within me Noggin that has to dream up such things.
At the time of painting these old bones i was modeling other stuff so being a tiny little bit tidy,i stood them on my little stone filled plastic cases just in order to give them something stony old to protect.
Well that`s it guys the end of a rattling good adventure with an old pile of Bones. BB
