It seems most farmer figures are either doing nothing or waving, or are obviously in WWII-era clothing, not modern. Does anyone have any other ideas before I start hacking up figures to make what I am thinking about?
My farmer figure is driving. I had to find a suitable resin military figure and just shave his clothing down to “civilianize” him. If I had waited a bit I could have used more of it with no changes as some of them are now wearing helmets and body armor.
No link to mine though. it’s your thread, not mine.
Yes, I have looked under "mechanic’, “civilian”, “farmer”, “worker”, etc., etc… I may be just too picky. Most workers and mechanics are obviously WWII-rea or military guys. Generic ones are lightly clothed. I am specifically looking for a farmer in winter clothing. Oh well, the quest continues.
I still recommend a military figure. There’s a wide range between Oliver Wendell Douglas and Farmer Hoggett. Mine fits in the middle of that spectrum - Trousers shaved down to blue jeans, torso shaved down to M65 field jacket with lead foil pocket flaps added. Boots remain for now but may change to trimmed down WWII Wehrmacht boots to represent rubber boots.
Or left as is. The poor Ruscists have actually reintroduced the PPSh-41 in Ukraine. Given all the other items they’ve donated it seems plausible that one or two have fallen into use against themselves.
