Multi-use!

In the interest of full (well,partial) disclosure, I have to say I wasn't sharp enough to have caught this myself.

I am,however,shameless enough to steal it.

There's a second set, but the box art appears to be the same.

You left out US Navy squids …

Don't touch this!

etotheipi,what figures are those,please?

Those are converted from Wargames Factory unarmoured ancients (Vikings?) to get the tunics and pants and WGF squid heads.

The boathook, sextant, swab, and semaphore flags are made from bits.

The covers and neckerchiefs are paper, glued on.

The rank insignia are also paper – I couldn't paint that detailed!

The rifle and sword … I forget.

Pretty much an Teutonic 9or other) ancient figure in a tunic and pants will work for the base. You can (and I have, just not here) convert squid heads from reasonably bulbous heads (wrong scale, Star Wars Bith, etc.) and bits of cross-stitch floss.

Sorry … they're a one-off.

Holy crap! Well, I gotta hand it to you there.
