Mystery Pin

Hi. I am asking for a friend of a friend: Can anyone identify this pin?

She believes it is Polish, WW2 era, and originally had a crown, removed when the unit became part of the British forces.

Please feel free to email me, or to post any ideas in the comments section.

Barsoom again

Lately I have been a bit of a Mars fanatic: SPACE 1889 and Barsoom, and sometimes the two intermixed. I have been digging out 20-year-old projects and dealing with them.

I’m also picking up some of the beautiful new stuff that’s been released since then.

I rebased  a couple of my old homecast Green Martians, and painted one that was sitting on a shelf.

An old Heritage Green Martian got rebased.

I bought a D&D plastic Displacer Beast and made a ‘Banth-alike.’ I trimmed away the tentacles, and gave it a putty mane. Not enough legs, but still more than four. It’s not as big or impressive as I would have liked.

A Reaper Miniatures ‘Bones’ Giant Wasp is now a Sith. I could have found a better angle for the picture.

I picked up a Bronze Age Miniatures White Ape. Beautiful, and he mixes with my D&D Grillah conversions perfectly.

These are not new, but fit in here well. They are conversions from D&D plastic Grillahs. I removed their tails (sculpting new bums) and switched hands around, moved limbs, etc.

I think the upper left is the stock arm pose.

There are plenty more figures in the works, and I am having a lot of fun.
