Roman Officer (conversion)

This is the assembled conversion: head is swapped, sword from Roman Allies glued on, Esci barbarian shield added. I have yet to fill the shield boss.

  1. Nice conversion. Do you pin the parts together?? and what kind of glue do you use?

    1. Thanks Markus! For this one I used For the head:
      superglue plus a wire pin, because my experience is that superglue on its own will not last. Then PVA glue just around the neck as reinforcement.
      For the sword: superglue then reinforce with PVA. Most HaT kits that feature open hand will take superglue well. But it creates a rigid bond that can be brittle, so PVA, which is flexible, is good for reinforcing the join.
      For the shield: Esci shields are moulded with a clip, leaving the boss open, so I clipped the hand in and fixed with PVA.

      Superpglue=Cyanoacrylate
      PVA=white glue
