yep great gallery bennain!  :D
I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.
High, yo, down they go, there's no such word as can't.
We'll ride clean down to hell and back for Ulysses Simpson Grant.

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

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:

Well, I try to convert him! Because he is as crazy as me, so the chances are good! At the moment he works on another custom.  ;D  ;)

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.
