I like Morlok, is that a spare head you get with him? I don’t care so much for Krom, what’s the point of an armoured skirt with no protection higher on the body? And the short sword worn high on the left will surely snag his bowstring. I suppose you could replace the Zweihander with a long pole and hanging from the end of it a kitchen sink…

Cheers,

Morlok is with two heads, yes.
And I like both figures, they are fantasy figures, they don’t need to be realistic-it is all about the painting :wink:

Cheers!

I understand what you’re saying. Fantasy figures allow for heroic poses, idealised physiques and ornate equipment that historical figures don’t. I feel, however, that strangely enough it can be important to avoid those small incongruities which can undermine the “willing suspension of disbelief” upon which fantasy depends for effect. I just think that if Krom were wearing a knee-length kilt instead of an ankle length skirt, was resting his left hand on the hilt of his grounded greatsword rather than a shield, carried his short sword low on his right hip and carried his hammer in his lowered right hand he would loose little of his epic quality but gain a sort of credibility. In fact, he’d bear a resemblance to this chap (a Syrian Archer, who normally are depicted with long skirts!):

Got this today for the Alternative Star Wars cam scheme group build.

Looks very good after a quick look inside.

Bandai are very nice kits. If they moved back over to armor and planes a lot of people would be very happy and manufactures very sad.

@kosprueone you should make a video of that and post it on here.

I had these figures from Master Box LTD. arrive today.

The apocalypse is one of my favorite genres.

@Klaus-Adler , I wish I could but that’s @unclepine 's build

One of my favorite genres as well. I’ve purchased a couple of these same figure sets. I don’t have kit #3 and #4 but would like to get those as well. The first 3 images in your post will not load for some reason. Maybe my computer or the forum filter thinks it’s porn :smile:

I wish they’d make kits #1 - 4, 1:24 scale tho

Guessing it’s your computer filter or something. I can see them all in the post.

The images you can’t see are the Desert Battle series “New Amazons - This is not the place for strangers”, “New Amazons - Give it back! This is my booty!!!” and Desert Battle Series Nit No. 1 “Skull Clan - Long distance raid. An old raider. Vadim.” I have all of the Master Box Desert Battle sets. Don’t know if I will ever build them. Just like having them collecting dust along with all of the other kits I couldn’t live without. :slight_smile:

1/24 scale would be nice to go along with all of those 1/24 scale vehicle kits out there. Would give us a lot more options for building an apocalypse car or truck of some type. Oh well.

I know that feeling…

I hear what you’re saying. MAIM have some nice resin/printed post-apoc figures that are reasonably priced and parts such as heads to facilitate conversions. But if you have the MasterBox stuff it goes well with 1/32nd scale vehicles even if there’s not that much modern civilian stuff in 1/35th (and what there is tends to be pricey). As you are probably aware from the box art, “New Amazons - This is not the place for strangers” is meant to go with this:
