only you can decide this.

thats a rad tank

The Leader Jul 27th, 2009 02:17 PM

Yeah, it's blue. :3

Kitsa Jul 27th, 2009 03:10 PM

What do you think of this person's custom work?


If they're really getting $100 apiece for them...damn. I did shit like that to my dolls when I was little, but never tried to sell it.

The Leader Jul 27th, 2009 05:21 PM

I don't know why someone would pay a hundred for those unless those outfits she made for them are AMAZING. But I don't know a lot about 12 inch stuff. I don't really pay attention to how much money people can make off of this. They're just toys to me, none of that pretentious howdy do, if you catch my drift. :conspiracy

The Leader Jul 27th, 2009 05:22 PM

I do like the Joan of Arc one.

Kitsa Jul 27th, 2009 06:02 PM

I liked her more than the others because more effort seemed to be involved. Anyone can pop off a Barbie head and paint the stump red. :\

When I was much younger (junior high or thereabouts) I made a Sculpey statue of Lady Jane Grey. Someone bought it on Ebay and now it's in some big collection of Lady Jane Grey stuff somewhere. My mom made me stop doing sculptures, they were giving her nightmares.

Then all the Tudor hype came along (with series like "The Tudors" and mass-marketed novels/movies like "The Other Boleyn Girl") and ruined Tudor history for me. It was bad enough that the Helena Bonham Carter/Cary Elwes "Lady Jane" movie was mooned over by a subset rivaling "Twilight" fandom, but now it's just too damn mainstream.

If you notice, a huge chunk of those dolls are Tudor-era.

French history had been pretty safe and then that Kirsten Dunst movie came along. Now I hear they're going after Charlotte Corday too. Most of the French-made historicals try to be accurate, but hell, put Marie Antoinette in Converse All-Stars and have her dance to "I Want Candy", why the hell not. >:

This may sound very geeky, but I can identify you used a Sherman, a DUKW landing craft, and some Truck parts for your 1/72 model. And probably even an aircraft cockpit. I love the whole mix-mash of it ^.^

I also love the Wasteland Patrol, probably made of Standard Wehrmacht units with guns form another kit. I love the menacing gas masks!

The rest, superb work.

good job sir ^.^

The Leader Aug 27th, 2009 10:36 PM

You are right on the blue tank! The Wasteland Patrol legs and helmets were indeed from Wehrmacht, but the arms, torsos and heavily modded heads were from some SWAT/GSG 9 figures and the guns are cut down laser rifles from GI Joe ARAH. :)

Hey, those are great mate. I really like them. I think that instead of painting two colours right next to each other (The Comedian's shirt/skin for example) you should paing a dividing colour between the two. Black shirt, maybe a grey dividing line, then the flesh colour.

The Leader Sep 6th, 2009 12:36 PM

Or a darker black, maybe. Or just a different black. IDEAS! :D

The Leader Sep 8th, 2009 05:56 PM

Thank you, honey. ;/

:hypno excellent.

Tadao Jun 6th, 2010 12:06 PM

Are those based on anything or is it all your imagination?

The Leader Jun 6th, 2010 12:41 PM

It's all from my imagination. Except for the last one. :o

Zhukov Jun 25th, 2010 11:52 AM

Cool and tantalising.

The Leader Jun 25th, 2010 01:35 PM

Zhukov, you charmer you.

Zhukov Jun 28th, 2010 10:05 AM

Yes, ok, posting them again just to get attention I see, :rolleyes but good nonetheless.
