Hi Jim and thanks very very much!! Really glad you enjoyed him! Yes its true i always enjoy a bit of everything from modern to ancient, i cant stick to one thing lol! The 'Stach was really great fun to make, just used some fibers from this really wooly duster i had and it just worked out as id hoped, glad you liked it too, as well as the other props. Thanks so much Jim, always look forward to your wonderful bashes as well.

Great looking figure Mike. Lots of cool detail. What were you using for a reference? I like all the little character pieces you added and the uniform looks great. I can also see you are starting to get into Photoshop. Very cool.

Hi Stall Stuff and thanks so much man! As with mostly all of my figures they are just ideas i envision from my head and then i try to put the figure together based on how i saw it, sometimes they work sometimes not lol! I wish i had photoshop, these pics and all my other ones ive just been using my basic image editor which has a few cool features like sepia and adding text, resizing etc. Really glad you enjoyed, thanks so much for all the comments!

Hi Zebraten and thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed him as well as his wolly 'stache, i had fun working on that! Thanks!!
