Remembering Marx WOW Figures

If you were a kid in the 1960s who loved history and toy soldiers, you probably had a WOW figure!

Here's my 'finished' Covenanter army. Lots and lots of headswaps and conversions. Some of my favourite figures reside here. link


(And yes I freely admit that 'finished'is a bit of a loose concept)

Very nicely done!

As always, great work. It is most impressive that you can do head swaps in this scale. My Covenanters have 9 foot regiments (only 20 fig units as per F. of Glory) with 7 more to paint. I'll need more gray paints!

Thank you both.

S – grey paint? If you are going for the traditional 'wargamer look' (as I did), then yes you will need lots. If you are going for 'probably historically accurate' then lots of browny grey paint. I do wonder if normal grey with a heavy old recipe Nuln Oil would do the job (it stains the block of colour as well as pooling in the crevices)?

They look good to me, regardless of whether you were going for wargamer or historically accurate look.

Very impressive army! I especially love the assortment of artillery and the cuirassiers, brilliant!

Thanks all. The heavy metal was a flight of fancy – Argyll's Lifeguard were 'possibly' equipped as cuirassiers. Which was good enough for me

Beautifullly done! Great looking army!
