A few Castle-based figs I recently threw together:

An undead/biomechaniod knight of my Thulian faction

I created the lance by removing the pommel from a BrickArms Damien Blade and crafting a small connection piece by trimming down and Sharpie-ing a Technic pin

One of my favorite mythological characters, Sun Wukong from the Chinese classic, Journey to the West

Dadao blade is from BrickArms and the hairpiece and tail are from Arealight.

A knight from my Arrakean faction, a desert-based group:

Not much, but I'm a big fan of keeping color and tone consistent for a faction such that even a knight like this matches more modern-based figs that are part of the same faction.

Enjoy!

This is fantastic.
I've spend several hours in my childhood watching the Monkey King and the resemblance is striking.
Good job on those.

I love the Monkey King. It's very similar to the one, we used to associate to, since as a child. I am a little surprised that you have watched it before. Thought it was only known in this part of the world.  :tongue:

Of course I know the Monkey King!  What I don't know, however, is "dong, dong, dong."   What is "dong, dong, dong?"  :grin:

Are you nuts?
I loved watching those tv series, watching him outwit the evil ones and that amazing magic wand/staff/stick of his was on the top of my wish list for brithdays and christmases. - Later it was switched with the need/wish for a real deal flamethrower (which I never got  :hmpf_bad: )
