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:

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: )

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:

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

More figs are coming this way, ladies and gentlemen! )  :classic:
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.

This time I'd like you to invite you to the Roman Empire!  :thumbup:

"Hey, filius! Pigra mancipia dicite toga mundare! Incrassatus est omnia!"
(Hey, son! Tell those lazy slaves to clean my toga! It is all greasy!)


Posted Image

"Who is there?"
(Who's there?)


Posted Image

"Imperium mihi centurio! Cedite!"
(I'm the imperial centurion! Make way for the Master!)
