    I made it myself. For the front parts, I used brass bar, ball pen spring, Pringles cap (cut and heated).
    For the back parts, Band etching Parts(for car miniature) and rounded plastic parts were used.

    I hope this helps.

    Hmm... that turned out better than I expected. Couldn't find any stun batons though.
    And not sure if any extra armor will make it better.

    Has anyone found good suppliers for alternative weapons that are suitable for Infinity scale, S2?

    In particular, I'm looking for missile launchers and a something that can pass as a feurebach. I've previously kitbashed missile launchers out of spare parts/tubes and the like but they often come up looking too chunky for infinity miniatures.

    In line with @SuperD 's post, does anyone know good suppliers for alternative arms/heads that fit scale wise with the current era of Infinity minis? Looking for bits to use with Infinity minis for RPG characters that more civilian/criminal than military/mercenary.

    Most heads are built for 40k's size standard but Statuesque has female heads covered. I prefer the pulp size over the fine size as I feel the fine sized ones are too small for Infinity's standards. Sites like Puppetswar have heads that are slightly bigger than Infinity's enough that you will notice a difference. Dreamforge Games is a smaller size than Puppetswar but is still a slight bit larger than an Infinity male head. Plus those Dreamforge heads are either helmeted or army caps so perhaps not the civilian look you are trying to look for.

    It is difficult to find a equivalent for CB's models outside of Statuesque for females. You either have to make due with the larger sized heads of most manufacturers or buy certain CB models just for their heads. So far I haven't found a bits company that caters to this game's caliber of scope in head choice.

    Any tests with Hasslefree, Victoria Minis, Dragon Forge, Anvil Industry, Black Cat Bases, Crooked Dice, Pig Iron? Or maybe historic, like WW2 (and the weird/diesel punk versions), suppliers?

    Those are interesting models! They mostly have fine scale heads for infinity in their comparison page but I assume those are old pre cad sculpts. You recommend the pulp scale heads instead? Have you tried the weapons? I'd like one of the sub machine guns, probably pulp scale there as well?

    You can always commission someone to design something and print it for you. I have asked a friend to make PanO Combi rifle for me, here is a link for the file : https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3...T1duU80riL-_iBZIwmWkeIceVQKeFjpIMzaQewCj-DrN4
    I just hate when my female and male soldiers have different size of weapon, so I had him design a combi for me. He did it in 1 day. Will print it later today to see how it will turn out.

    Yeah, Fine for most pre-Icestorm scale and pulp for post-Icestorm.

    The weapons aren't really in different scales but hold up pretty well compared to Infinity. Warlord Games' WWII and Project Z plastics also scale well, my Ariadna have a few guns from the British WWII weapon sprue.

    Pulp scale is the way to go. The only models fine scale would work for is the older sculpts like you stated.

    Puppetswar's helmets are OK for modern Infinity CAD sculpts. Their Samurai heads size perfectly on DoTanko and Daiyokai.

    Hasslefree heads will be a bit big, but are OK for current CAD sculpts.

    Hasslefree is also good for weapons, Puppetswar guns are 40k sized. Maxmini has some weapons that will be good, like their shotguns and sniper rifles (even the Barrett, the real thing is huge), other guns will be 40k sized.

    Oh, if you do have older Infinity sculpts, Statuesque Minis 'Finescale' heads will work on them.

    Could we perhaps outsource the head discussion into an extra thread?
    This was one of the few thread that stayed to the to topic.
    Nobody minds if there is a question with a few answers, but now we have nearly one page about that.

    It's perfectly on topic. Certainly not worth losing your head about.

    I've only recently started painting and already I'm messing with arm switches.

    A little update. I fixed some stuff on the belt, added a medic symbol on the pouch and changed the grenade so it look like a grenade rather than a soft drink!
