Red Sky in the Morning (2)

Another 9 conversions using Accurates 100yrs war sets. Sir Hugh Jarse and Sir R. Sliker are off somewhere causing Trouble.
The 7 Standing conversions
Arm and head swops
More arm swops and the bod in the middle has had a simple weapon swop.
Another simple generic kniggit conversion , head turned in the other direction.

  Battlefield  "scatter"

The whole band of Marauders together.
So far, both sets have been quite usefull for conversions, a total of 20 infantry conversions (so far) from a total 24 available in both sets.(16 for the english and 8 for the French) All together, without the cavalry bods,  they make a decent little army.
With one day to go the voting on the Neopolitan Challenge Over at Anne´s Blog is if you haven´t already,  get along and vote RED!!!!!  :-D

The captchas. I´ve found out that you don´t have to bother typing the numbers in, just the letters, which asks the question..why do they even bother with the numbers? Why bother with captchas at all? Since swopping to comment Moderation I still get spam but  they don´t have the Chance of posting on old Posts without my knowing it and deleting them.


  1. Very inventive conversions ! I'm always stunned by the ease that you have for making conversions! For me it's a hard work ...
    Thanks for the useful advice about captchas ! I've never understood why the "words" are so difficult to "read" !

  2. Beautiful! Love the archers...

  3. More great looking figs


  4. Great work Paul, thanks for the heads up on Captcha.....I hate it!

  5. Lovely work as always.

    The reason they do two words on the captchas is because they are collecting data for OCR; that is, the ability to take or scan pictures of text and have the computers recognize them. The first word they know what it says; the second word they don't, but most people will type what they see anyway. That way they have data on what all those second words (or numbers) actually say, and they can use that data to improve their OCR software.

    The difficult-to-read first word is for sort of the opposite reason; to prevent OCR-enabled spambots from leaving comments!

  6. Another nice set of conversions Paul and nicely painted to boot. The thing about CAPTCHA's is-I wish everyone would just stop using it :0)

  7. Very good sir and no numbers you say, I'm off to try that.

  8. Great conversion work Paul, there are some real great poses in the collection!

  9. Always lovely background , and great paint .
    Cheers .

  10. Impressive work! I've never been game to try.

  11. Excellent conversions Paul! And that's a nice picture of the whole army!
