A blast from the past with this post. Many years ago in Airfix magazine there was a series of article on converting ancient figures (by Bob Black?), amongst them was how to create Balearic slingers from the Airfix Robin Hood set. Well here they are, probably at least 50 years on.
I should have replace the missing slings on a few of them, but I decided not to take the cane of them breaking.
But why rebase? - well I realised I was short of Celtic slingers and that this unit was oversize and the surplus could be used to boost them
I have also reworked a picture of the Celtic light cavalry so that the conversion are more visible for those who are interested in more of the historic conversions.
