A few things I have started the work on.
1st is a Reaper Fem Bot figure with a head swap from a Heresy figure and some putty hair.  I am turning her into a Gigolo Jane figure from the movie AI.  I just thought of her when I saw the figure. The 2nd is a stolen Idea I saw on Lead adventure site. A complementary stolen idea using parts from Wargames factory(WF) female Zombies with arms from the male survivor box.  The 3rd figure is is a Star wars clix figure with a hand and head added from the (WF) male survivor box (just need a new gun to be added)
The Box sets from Wargame factory are a great buy and can be used with lots of different figures.

Next is my ice dragon (as I seem to be fascinated with dragons at the moment) and has just started.  This is the dragon with the factory paint job, and it is a fantastic job as it is.  I most likely will only do a touch up on it here and there and not a full repaint.  the base is a combination of a wood base,broken up cork tile and Vallejo paste.

Favnir Destroyer of Men (finished)

 According to legend:
Black dragons are vile, evil tempered, and obsessed with death. They live in fetid, swampy habitats. They find comfort in the sickening-sweet aroma of drowned, rotting carcasses. The black dragon's domain is the swamp and the jungle. They are abusive, quick to anger, and malevolent. Their hearts are as black as their slimy scales.
A black dragon can be identified by his grim, skeletal appearance. His eyes lie in deep sockets. His two great horns curve forward and down. The flesh of his face appears to have partially deteriorated, as if burnt by acid. Acidic slime drools from his menacing grin. He smells of rotting vegetation, foul water, and poisonous acid.

Living in sticky, wet habitats, black dragons dine mostly on fish, eels, and other water creatures. They will eat meat, but prefer to allow their victims float in ponds for days, or even weeks, before being eaten.
If you ever encounter a black dragon, be careful—he prefers surprise attacks instead of fair fighting. He is most active in the darkest hour of night, wherein the darkness he feels confident and powerful. He breathes a poisonous, sizzling acid.
 Favnir was not as legend would have you believe. He was a Young Dragon but powerful, who would surprise foes with a powerful flame from his fire lungs,  most were expecting acid, fire was uncommon in the Blacks.  He had lived in peace with the villagers for many years, they allowed him  some cattle and sheep, that they would leave in the far field.  He would swoop in take what he needed and would leave the village in peace.  Once he even drove off a group of raiders who had threaten the village to the joy of the men.
But now the villagers had learn Favnir was with  mate and was to be a father..."no no no three dragon s would not be tolerated"  the village elders said. So one dark night as Favnir was off Hunting the Villager came to the swamp and slaughtered the female and eggs as she slumbered.
Oh they were so proud... DRAGON SLAYERS are we!!! they boasted over some pints of ale.  Laughter filled the tavern, music was in the air but so too was the sound of beating wings.  The men had thought (not very wisely) the Favnir would be scared now that his brood was dead...Not so, would you be?
The enraged Dragon attack with a ferocity never seen before, killing all the murders and all things living in his path.  Clutching many body's in his talons and jaw he brought the corpses back to the swamp leaving them to ripen.  No more more sheep.  Favnir was now  Favnir the destroyer of Men.
 Dragon is from Safari toys ltd and the base is from
Thought this was a perfect choice I also added Secret weapons liquid water to they base which worked really well and very easy to use(great products)

The Tatooine hop Bith style

 had a bunch of extra Bith Starwars figures and was just going to do some repaints but this just happend (my love of dance and Starwars merged)
 I took 2 Biths Clix figures and removed the gun hands (saved to be used later) re sculpted (or attempted so)and  joined hands in dance, and added a plastic tiled floor on a base(loved the paint job on it , Photo really does not show it). The male was just painted straight forward but I added some breasts to the female with putty(with an attempt to have them swinging a bit...seemed to work) then added a bit of wire to the wrist and a barbed wire head piece to give her a more feminine quality (she is going all out to impress him) and  the Tatooine hop is born !!!
