Creating the perfect Admiral...
Posted 10 October 2005 - 06:43 PM
I don't care what torsos I use, as long as they fit the time period (1600s-1800s). Would replacing the admirals arms with white arms do anything, or are there better torsos? Only limitation is I would like it to be a lighter color. Actually, as long as its not black.
I have a good one for the Pirate Captain, but I need one for my big Grand Admiral or whatever.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The Imperial Armada ruffles is good, but its green... and it doesnt really go well with blue or red soldiers(as that is what I need it for)...
The Blue Pirate one isn't bad except for the ruffled shirt makes it look sloppy.
That white rare pirate guy isn't bad... I didn't think about that... if I gave him white legs, white hands, some epaullets, a white cape and a nice hat, he may fit the part very well...
Thanks for the ideas!
I've looked through most of the torso's and that is one of the best i've seen for a white one... if anyone else has suggestions though, it would be appreciated.

I'll post some custom minifigs of mine later when I have some time to take photos, perhaps this will inspire you as well.

Not sure what happened. It worked yesterday.

This is an admiral who is in command of my HMS Progress and can be seen on some pictures of that ship. As you can see I used policeman's torso which doesn't look bad in my opinion. The police bagde may be considered a medal or a decorative motif of some kind.
I call this one a commander, but he can be a captain or whatever you want, or an admiral if you give him the admiral's hat. He's my second in command of the HMS Progress and can be spotted aboard her as well. I used fireman's torso for him.
Another captain or admiral made using Sam Sinister's torso (from Orient Expedition, as seen in Secret of the Tomb for instance).
And now a bonus:
Bluecoats' ship's surgeon, made using the medic's torso from Doc Ock's Fusion Lab. I know the light grey pattern was supposed to be jacket's zip, however it may also be considered a decorative ornament.
As you can see I've used some parts that represent times after 1800s, however they don't have any specific modern elements and IMO fit here well.

And that Sam Sinister torso is great. I'm using it for some of my pirates.

Well, the handkerchief with drops of blood looks a bit disturbing, maybe it'd be better for an evil pirate captain after all. I used this torso to make Ghost Rider (see here).

Mr Sting, six months later have you taken pictures of what you did with the captain's torso? It appears you've used it for your avatar but haven't posted a full picture yet.

Are you willing to customize? I haven't heard a lot of talk about that here on EB, but here is a link to variations to some pirate torsos that Anthony Sava came up with:
Stickers for pirate torsos
The pirate torsos are on the second page.
Not all of these would work for your admiral, but a few might. All you have to do is save the files you want on your computer and print them out on sticker or decal paper, then stick them on an appropriate torso...
Edit: Hey, I just noticed I got a title. Sweet!

Stickers for pirate torsos
You must have a sixth sense if you can hear typed text! :-D But yes indeed we're interested in customisation, not only mini-figures, but ship sails, cannons and even piggies (The Imperial Guards need their ham)...
Mr JoshW, do you know if anybody has printed those custom pirate torsos and applied them to a mini-figure?
