A few days ago I was putting my painted Neanderthals away in one of my completed figures file boxes (they are resident in the Bronze Age box at present as I don't have a prehistoric one yet) and I found these five cavegirls. These are Copplestone Castings figures, except the one on the right who is a slightly converted Founrdy Valkyrie.
Copplestone only do four cavegirl poses (Why? I would buy as many as he can sculpt!) so, back in 2010, I slightly converted the Valkyrie, added some longer hair to one of the others and bent some of the arms of the rest to add a bit of variety. This was my first, very tentative use of Greenstuff. Anyway, they sat in the box for five and a half years ignored and unloved (rather like this blog).
Feeling sorry for the ladies, when I put my Neanderthals away I got them out and undercoated them earlier this month. I realised they would need some weapons and soon discovered that Baueda do some Stone Age weapons. I ordered the axes and clubs rather than the rather tree trunk like spears. They arrived pretty quickly so I was able to arm the cavegirls and start putting some paint on them.
Actually, I discovered that I had some Copplestone weapons left over (they used to include slightly more weapons than figures in the packs) but I will need to use a couple of them for two of the three cavemen which I also found in the box and added to the workbench.
Yesterday, I put some more paint on these and hope to get some more done on them this week. I am going to take this on as a mini project and see if I can get them finished before a probable two week business trip next month. I have just realised, while looking at the Copplestone Castings page, that there is a set of these figures I don't have - cavemen characters. So I have just bunged off an order to North Star. Of course this will now give me 12 not eight figures to paint!
