  Adventurous Doctor Adventurous Doctor
Stock Wargames Foundry 'Dr. Watson' figure. Painted in acrylics and standing in front of a paper building, during an escapade in the Wild West Campaign.
 
 
  Afghan Tribesman Afghan Tribesman
A stock figure from Wargames Foundry. Part of an artillery crew I think.
 
 
  African Animals: Angry Hippo African Animals: Angry Hippo
Originally a Birthday cake decoration, although why a child would want a (more poorly painted) version of this on his cake is beyond me. Repainted to, hopefully, appear more like the real animal. Then based upon a steel washer with decorative terrrain.
 
 
  African Askari - Imperial Germany African Askari - Imperial Germany
A conversion from a Wargames Foundry Northwest Frontier Ghurka rifleman. The original pill box cap, which was set at a jaunty angle, was carved off. Then a coverd fez was added using modeling putty. The most time consuming part of the conversion was creating a believable neck flap for the fez, also out of modeling putty.
 
 
  African Askari Bugler African Askari Bugler
A stock Wargames Foundry figure from the Darkest Africa line of figures.
 
 
  African Askari Rifleman African Askari Rifleman
A stock Wargames Foundry figure from the Darkest Africa line of figures. Described in the catalog as a 'Heavily Armed Askari.'
 
 
  African Bowmen African Bowmen
Figure from the Wargames Foundry 'Darkest Africa' line sculpted by Mark Copplestone. A generic bowman with bow string made from jeweler's wire. The original quiver and belt were decried as looking too Roman. (They were a sort of red leather color.) Some quick research, a fellow member had lent an African Songhai hat with decorative leather trim, and this relatively simple pattern was added to the quiver.
 
 
  African Hut Conversion #1 African Hut Conversion #1
A decorative, little papier mache bird house, soon to be converted into an African hut with a thatched roof.
 
 
  African Hut Conversion #2 African Hut Conversion #2
Conversion of a paper bird house into a 25mm African hut. First the bottom half inch or so was cut off because the building was too tall. Then the roof was thatched with hemp unwoven from a scrap piece of rope. After which the rope was painted with thinned white glue. Then the walls were brushed with a small amount of the thinned glue, too much and the paper walls would go soggy, and plaster of Paris was sprinkled onto the damp walls. When the plaster dried it would provide a better texture for dry brushing. Finally it was decided that this method of construction was just too time consuming, and alternatiive methods were investigated for finishing the rest of the village.
 
 
  African Huts African Huts
African Huts made of resin. Manufacturer unknown.
 
 
  African Porter Step 1 African Porter Step 1
A stock Wargames Foundry figure of an African porter carrying a trunk on his head. Begin by priming the figure with WHITE primer. Any other type of primer will muddy the colors laid on top of them. Then coat the figure with AMERICANA-DA195 'Bittersweet Chocolate,' which is a very dark brown.
