Hi,
I'm looking for a figure that's suitable for Connor from ACIII.
He looks like this:


I don't mind converting, so if someone knows an F&IW soldier or something that stands in a pose that looks a bit like this one and has a uniform like Connor, I'm more than happy.
I already asked this question in Age of the Big Battalions. After a few not-so-helpful replies, abdul666lw said to me that I could try asking this in Pikes, Muskets and Flouncy Shirts. I hope I'll get more helpful replies here.
Thanks!

I'd say you're probably better off starting with an Indian and adding the uniform coat...

Btw these are not bad either:




Reminds me of 'Empire  Total War': uniforms are 'monsters of inaccuracy' but often with pleasant details inspirational for builders of Imagi-Nations.

Was thinking about making a conversion by my self, based on that image.
I'll gues I go for one of these:

Black Scorpion Pirates, either the guy on the left

or Mad Jim Jones

I think that Mad Jim Jones works perfectly, if I would convert it a little.

Assasin's Creed miniatures should be available soon from Heroclix.





Have a look at this thread too :

The Heroclix look rubbish though. I would love to see what you do with this.

Are you going to game with it?

I've seen on the web reworked / repainted Heroclix minis which looked quite good, so despair may be premature.
Hope they'll do justice to the Hellequin.

Converted with a tricorne to fit in the Lace Wars times, one could hope for something along these lines:


For the female character the Eureka 'Sandra' officer would be appropriate



Assassin's Creed 18th C. minis can become heroes (or villains) in a 'Lacepulp' adventure (think 'Chaos in Carpathia'  and 'Strange Aeons', with tricornes)  à la Carnevale  /  A touch of Evil;

('On a moon lit night in Pangaea')
specially for these minis if the adventure is set in Canada / the Colonies by the time of the F&IW / AWI, as for instance excellently done in 'A Devil in Jersey'.

Some of those do look rubbish, but the brotherhood Ezio looks very nice! I will try to get that one for sure.

The clix figures are often incredibly good sculpts, but the plastic and the 'factory' paint jobs destroy them. I've seen some of the greens (usually grey) on sculptors websites and they are fantastic, I was shocked the first time I saw some. I've also seen some that have had repaints by good painters and it's amazing what can be done.

I suppose I'm saying don't discount them just yet Smiley

Not being a button counter, what worries me most about these characters design is the *bow*. I understand that if slightly off-period it is not out of place in 18th C. North America, and I agree that, sprouting neither flame nor smoke and almost silent it is a good assassin weapon. Good, but not perfect, I doubt it can be shot from a prone  posture. Air guns such as the (historical) repeating Girandoni Windbüchse don't suffer this limitation, but perhaps would not be not visually 'distinguishing / striking' enough? Then what about (repeating) crossbows?


They have the additional advantage, would the game turn really 'Lacepulp'  / 'monster hunting' , to allow to shoot silver-tipped bolts or wooden stakes.

The bow and stylised hatchet will be to show the Native American blood of this particular character.

OK, then. I confess I know very little about the game; but what about the two other male 'designs'? The bow looks specially 'odd' associated with the character dressed as a ship captain: one would expect for instance a multibarreled carbine.
