Make Your Own Death Korps Models, With West Wind Heads


These three figures were built using new unreleased heads from West Wind, in our last post we previewed these new head sets and Mike showed some models that he is working on using them, you can see the review here.

I decided to make some Death Korps style guardsmen, with just a head swap. I did the same thing with West Wind heads for my Ardwick 23rd troopers, and really like the way it came out.

Picklehaube head

Painted dark green grey and used the kit pack from a Warzone figure.


Adrian head

I chose blue like the WWI French uniform with a heavy wash.


Kepi

I have to say I was a bit stumped with this next unique head sculpt, and decided to do an American Civil War style mini and this head seemed a bit small to me, so I used an old Ratling which I decapitated and swapped the kepi head on. I decided to paint him green like the Civil War sharpshooters I also made the scope brass.

Here they are side by side

These new heads are ripe for Imperial Guard conversions, so keep any eye on our blog for the next give away which will be some of these unreleased head packs from West Wind.

    They are not yet listed as they have not been released, you might get lucky and win them in our give away though, or keep an eye on the West Wind site, they will be released soon.

  3. I dig those Adrian heads. Based on the review from the other day, I didn't see a lot of uses for the Kepi heads, but that Ratling conversion looks fantastic!

    I'm really looking forward to these being released. Thanks for introducing me to West Wind!

  4. That's some pretty awesome stuff. I'd love to see an entire unit or even platoon once finished.
