Shoulder Pads
« on: January 31, 2008, 11:46:14 AM »
OK here's an idea for one of you enterprising folks out there.

How about making some generic shoulder pads in various shapes, square & blocky, rounded, etc.  Provide some deep recesses to the undersides of them, so that they can be mounted on most other 28mm humanoid figures without major cutting and green-stuff.  Cast up a bunch and sell them as conversion parts. 

One could say take a bunch of the square and blocky types and put them on Void 1.1 Viridian Marines, paint some eagles on them and all of a sudden have a set of figures that look perfect in a Capitol army, and make some damn fine Freedom Brigadiers.

Same could be done with other models and shoulder pad combinations.

One could go another step further and make some alternate heads with gas masks and perhaps some alternate helmets.  Make the lower head without a helmet and sell various styled helmets that could fit on top.
Back in my day we didn't have that fancy non-toxic pewter stuff.  We played with lead, LEAD I TELL YA! and we liked it.

There is a company out there that does WWII heads in 28mm and I think has some of the old WWI style helmets.  http://www.westwindproductions.co.uk/catalog/index.php?infoBox=1&cPath=130&osCsid=55bc5e0b4af48cd507a149617a13a918
VeezCon products:  Not as good as if they had been actually produced by a real figure company, but better than using your shoe to proxy with...sort of!
