Albedo Pig Iron Sci-Fi Conversions

While I was at Hammerhead last month I got chatting with the guys over at Pig Iron Productions, they have some great stuff in their range and they are another independent 28mm Sci-Fi manufacturer based like us in North Yorkshire.

I had shown Alex some conversions that I had done a while back using Albedo ILR bodies and Frostgrave Barbarian heads to make some Sci-Fi freedom fighters and we got to wondering how the Albedo bodies and weapon systems would match up with Pig Iron Heads.

I went home with two packets of different Pig Iron heads, and promised to put some conversions together and take some photographs.

The top three miniatures are built using EDF Heavy Infantry bodies armed with LAKW 1-56 Assault Rifle, MAKW 3-60 Light Machine Gun, and Officer Data Pad arms together with Pig Iron System Hunter heads.

The Albedo range contains four sci-fi / near future AFV's (2 x light tank / 2 x APC ).

The optional vehicle crew set contains single piece resin castings of hatch with crew shoulders allowing and head to be glued in place to customise the vehicle.

I used a set of Pig Iron System Commando heads to convert the Albedo AV8B APC.
