I have recently been inspired to do some heads swops after reading a post on dropship horizons blog.

I would like some help with finding some character-full 15mm heads suitable to swop with QRF's deep space marines.

Looking for Scared faced, Bold headed Cigar chomper types perhaps some with sunglasses and also a couple of good female heads. Because the QRF figures have a distinctive helmet I am looking for bare heads. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know peter pig have heads but I haven't seen any pics.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

If you've been reading DH, I'm sure you've already seen ours (GZG) – but just in case, here:

I think those may be just what you're looking for, especially the SG15-XH1 pack?

Peter Pig.

Peter Pig do 15mm sci fi, and they do separate heads. I don't know if they do sci fi heads, but I got lizardman heads for some 15mm pirates. So I'd try them.

Thanks Jon, just noticed DH mentions your range. They look ideal, expect and order from me in the next day or two.

Thanks Mark, your pics are a lot clearer than the one's on the website. Those look awesome and exactly what i'm after. Love your conversion.

Cheers for the head swop inspiration BTW. Can't wait to experiment on some QRF marines.

Do you have pics of the other heads GZG has available please?

Thanks for the positive feedback Chris

Never got round to taking a photo of the heads in beret/miners helmet/boonie.

Word of caution about the GZG beret heads and miners helmets they are closer to 20mm. The boonie hats are fine.

Cheers

I'm sorry but isn't it SWAP? I just noticed that you're not the first to person to spell it that way?

Thanks Mark, Dan.

Much appreciated.

OK the orders are in with GZG and QRF, so hopefully have some WIP pics up of the QRF deep space marine head swaps in the not too distant future.

Thanks for all tips and suggestions.
