|And could we ever forget the versatility of the American Civil war cavalry? These were conversions to Gothic cavalry, drawing pin shields and pins for javelins.|
The Airfix Romans were also put to a multitude of uses. These were conversions into Roman Auxilia (Light Heavy infantry in that specific WRG edition).
|The auxilia again. The shields were made from plasticard|
And this was a combination: the horse, and rider's lower torso/legs, from the ACW cavalry, with a roman legionary torso and head pinned to it, to give Roman light cavalry of the 1st centuryAD.

That said, I think these will all be repurposed and re-used. They were a love affair at the time, and continue to be so despite the beautiful miniatures available on the market today.
If you re of that age, why not share some of your own epic conversions. I'll bet there are some astounding pieces of work out there.
