Thank you very much. ) :classic: You're very kind. ) :thumbup:

As said above, I never use decals but rely on my painting skills. But I'm sure some talented decal-maker (and there are plenty here.) will be glad to help you. And may even make a better torso, since decal-making in that matter gives much better opportunities. ) :classic:

What did you use to customize the faces?

My hands, brush and a couple of different paints. :classic:And inspiration from your kind comments, ladies and gentlemen! ) :sweet:

The Penguin paints all his figures.

Indeed so. Thank you.

Good day, ladies and gentlemen! ) :sweet:

Good job as always, Mr Cobblepot. Lenin is really nice. My country was under communist control, for the half of the 20th century, so I know much about them. I would be happy if you'd make Mátyás Rákosi, or János Kádár in lego :laugh: (if you heard about them :grin: )

Thanks, Viceroy! ) :classic: And may I ask what country you are from, comrade? ) Hungary, if I recall those people names correctly? *after checking Wikipedia* Yep. ) :classic:

Of course, I don't know much about them, but I'm not bad overall in history. Especially what concerns socialism. :cry_sad:

Good day, ladies and gentlemen! ) :classic:

Wow. The Queen is so simple, yet so cool. The real star of this set of figs is Lenin. His face is so clean, and the Communist Flag is really nice too :thumbup:

Victoria: Thank you very much, young man! )

Lenin: Spasibo, comrade! )

The Penguin: Thanks a lot! ) :laugh:

I like the Queen and Lenin but Oscar seems to be a MOC of LEGO pieces. Is his face actually your decal?

Thank you. ) :classic:

No, it's not. ) It's that rare occasion when I went purist and left a minifig unaltered. )

Good day, ladies and gentlemen! ) :classic:

Nice! I like these historical minifigs a lot, you should make more of them :classic:

Karl Marx would make a nice one too, or Louis XIV, Lord Nelson, (and many more actually...).

Anyway, these look great, good job :thumbup:

I had a lot of hesitations, if I may say so, about where exactly should I post the figs, here or in Castle ones, still I decided to post them here.

(Hey, son! Tell those lazy slaves to clean my toga! It is all greasy!)

Wow! What brilliant figs, Penguin! :thumbup:

The details are fantastic! It must have been tricky to paint such intricate features.

Great job on the Sculpey too!

Wonderful. I look forward to seeing a MOC with them all. :sweet:
