Frankish Crossbowmen - Tumbling Dice

Full Titel, FE14 Frankish Crossbowmen Quilted Jack.
8 bods in 6 poses. Two of the poses come headless and 4 spare heads are in the set, but they are all the same heads. Two of the poses are repeats so didn´t get painted, although they are the ones that need heads attaching so at some point I will add heads from other sets. 
Also in the set, 8 Pavisen und 5 loose crossbows.

Anglo - Saxon Fyrd - Strelets

 56 Bods x 4 Sprues x 14 poses.

There´s a bit of flash on some of the Bods but  it´s not a lot so not too much effort to remove it. 

Bows and Javelins
Spears
Axes
Swords...sorry, Scramaseax. 

The review at PSR on this set  isn´t exactly glowing. Apart from the Bod swinging his Scramaseax with both hands and the Bod holding his spear with both hands (Right of the pic with the Spearmen) I like them and there is room for conversions.

Elves - Light Alliance - Conversions

 There is always, however complicated, some conversion possibilities in every set of plastic 1/72nd Bods.

I´ve managed to get 5 from set 3. All archers but that´s what elves do best.


Body swops. Top halves swopped onto bottom halves. The two male elves were a straight exchange. the Top half of the Archer female from the kneeling pose onto the bottom half of the sword wielding standing pose.

Easy. Head swops.

Elves - Light Alliance

 Another lot of fantasy bods from DDS, the Light Alliance´s Elves set 3 

10 poses in the set, virtually no flash. 3 of them are female and they could have gone with a second set of just females. Or possibly three sets. The first set cloaked and helmeted heavy inf types that could form a battle line and the second set archers and the third female fighters. 

When put alongside the average 1/72nd bod these are a bit taller but that´s ok as Elves are described as being around 6`6" (or taller) so taller than men. 

Archers
Swords

Ok...10 poses? 😏Na, I think there´s some conversions possible with this lot. Where´s my scalpel? 😉
