Rifles!
« on: February 19, 2013, 02:08:27 PM »
I'm looking for a decent 28mm(ish) sized bolt action rifle. I'm currently involved in a Neo-Victorian gasmask horror RPG and my character is a sharp shooter with a bolt action. I've been trying to convert a few figures but I always end up with a rifle that's a bit too modern/sci-fi looking. Anyone got any suggestions for something of a more historic vein that's easy to get hold of and convertable? Plastic, resin or metal, I'm good whatever.

The Warlord Games Bolt Action miniatures come with separate weapons.

I used a couple of their Lee Enfield rifles to replace some really bad ones on the Foundry Dad's Army figures.

Loads of detail, and I seem to remember they include a sniper version, with scope

Perfect! If only I could get hold of a sprue. I'll keep my eye out on evil-bay.

If they're okay, pm me your address and I'll send you some. I have the British Infantry and there are plenty of spare weapons

Caerban, I have some plastic British Paratroopers that are likely to have bolt-action Lee-Enfields. I am replacing them with pulse-rifles so I may be able to help. I'll check tonight and let you know.

If there are bolt action rifles, I'll send them to you (I have no use for them).
