Five Archive Miniatures Star Ducks

Five Archive Miniatures Star Ducks

Late last night before packing for a family vacation, I finished 36 of these Archive Miniatures Star Ducks.

For a few of the ducks whose weapons were not well cast, I ordered some retro science fiction weapons from the Dirk Garrison line from Wargames Supply Dump.  I think these retro weapons look good on the Star Ducks.  I will treat these as some sort of crew-served weapons.

There were 36 ducks in total.  I made three ten-duck units, including a squad leader and assistant squad leader.  There are also six extra ducks that will be the platoon leader and some crew-served weapons.

  1. I love the work you have done on these and on the conversions. Which Product Code did you get for the conversions? I must say that that was a better option than SMG’s! I recently cast a few more of these and with better temperature control and a bit more tin I have been able to get good casting of the ray guns. I also found that removing them from the mold more carefully and careful use of the gate cutter made a difference too. The big question is when will they see action and how will you assign values to them in Combat Patrol?
