Wow that looks amazing Cheng.  :o

Did you use an airbrush to change the feet?

thanks Grant...sprayed all right...keep them genuine-like what I think Geobra might do...it'll look even better on those Roman sandals...  :D

I try to hang on to soft-customs but its hard to proceed with Asians without Ralf's and Tim's help  ;)

btw, I like your (trojan?) avatar!

Great job. Even the debatable color combination of this part makes sense now.

And it still looks perfectly pm.  :o


Did you just apply spray color or did you cut the feet too?

I am looking forward to the torso of the figure.

thanks Michael !
I used to fret about those purple/blue etc foot covers of our Wikings but no more   :D
no cutting nor sanding...just spray only  ;)
i'm testing new torsos other than snapping on those old samurai warriors' torsos

looks like this prototype will have to do  :) before I 'mass produce' these japanese legs like I did for my 'chinese legs' ( http://gardenwargaming.playclicks.com/forum/index.php?topic=1144.msg9349#msg9349 ) ...I just simply put a temporary torso and head on this...the hardest is the legs and then the head/hair (which is still 'cooking' in my head)

the other side; (having posted these, now I'm wondering if this should be moved to the 'customs' section?)

Hi Cheng

The legs look really good.  the boot tops make great gaiters (leg wrap).

Have you tried the "pirate breeches"--the legs that look like short-pants, bare calves, and shoes?  I painted one up for an unsuccessful japanese figure.  The shorts simulate the pant-legs bound at the knees pretty well.

My figure wound up being a disaster, but I was happy about the legs.

yes, i've bought 3 long ago but still not ready to spray their samurai sandals yet........youre right....I like the wider-looking pirate breeches (better than these wiking legs) which are more like the real thing.....but i'm still not reay to make those floral patterns on them like you did  ;)
maybe i'll just spray the sandals and worry about the patterns later! thanks very very much!

I'm planning to leave the calves bare....more for samurai(s).....
on the contrary, Tim, I have seen your this custom before and I liked it....and also those coloured wool (so 'wound' up was a good choice of words  ;D )

I liked your protective 'skirts' too...perhaps you might like to consider using those colorful but stiffer and narrower telephone wires?  :) I appreciate your suggestions very much!!

Thanks for the compliment Cheng.

Every time i look at your creations your going to encourage me to go out and buy a airbrush
for myself.

I like the other legs that you did. Can't wait to see them all assembled.
