Nice figures, Bennain ...

The German really looks just like what probably almost everyone would imagine what a Prussian officer should look like ... :)

And, Cheng, you can make your own pickelhauben ... All of those on the top shelf were "home manufactured" ...

All the best and thanks for sharing, Bennain,

It's great to see the different looks that can be achieved through parts swapping. It takes a good eye and a lot of imagination to do this well, and you have certainly done a very nice job with these soldiers. :D

My favourite is the second "gardist", but then I always seem to fall for those klickies with the sideburns. I don't know what it is about them! :lol:

well they do say women love men in uniform and i guess those "gentleman" side burns just add to the "magic" ;)

Here is a new custom from me.

When I was young, I saw in german television a series which called "Sandokan - Der Tiger von Malaysia" (Sandokan - The Tiger of Malaysia). I think it was at the end of the seventies in 1977 or 1978.

This series have had fascinated me so much, that I have got the inspiration to create this figure.

Enjoy
Bennain
Title: Bennain's Experiments
Post by: cheng on March 21, 2006, 11:20:36 AM
hey bennain,

Sandakan(in formerly British-Borneo, i think) was probably 'popular' with 'off-shore pirates' during the seventies...(from neighbouring philippines/Indonesia)
but i didnt realise they are so 'famous' that the germans made a TV series  :lol:

your hands must have got serious cramps painting those lines  :P  

the Tiger of Malaya was given to a ruthless Japanese General occuppying what was call 'Malaya' during WWII
so this Tiger of Malaysia is a fiction...he must have been a Robin Hood in your young eyes then  :wink:  

thanks for sharing your fantasy! (was he the good pirate?)

So! Last weekend a good friend has visited me. He saw some of my figures and customs and said to me, that he wants to make also a custom. I gave him some legs, arms, a head and a body and also some equipment. This is the result of my friend:

So, I've created an enemy for the romans. The picture shows a persian bowman. For the moment I'm a little unhappy with this custom, because the bow is not really good. I look for these from special 4527.

Hello,

and a happy new year.

This Thread German Camel Corps (https://gardenwargaming.playclicks.com/forum/index.php?topic=1130.0) gives me the inspiration for a custom.

I tried to make it only with orignial parts and I've made pics from different versions.

I created a Samurai, which was inspired by the new special which will come in february next year.
