Here's my latest headsculpt just arrived today and ready for my latest project Twisted Evil its a resin cast of Sargent Elias K Grodin who was played by Willem Defoe in the Movie Platoon, this is one of my all time favorite war movies and Ive been after the figures for a long time but they are usually very expensive so I thought I would make my own up pirat









This will be a mammoth task to paint up, plus with it being resin it doesn't have a neck post hole but it looks great doesn't it Smile Ive just ordered another version of this head from USA that doesn't need as much work and is a Sideshow head with the neck-post hole so keep watching this space and see how James and I progress with our mission

Fantastic Iain! what a great project to get stuck into! Brownboots would be a good guy to contact for tips and help (if you need any, that is) as he is extremely good at this type of work. In fact, he repainted my Tommy Gunn sculpt. I shall look forward to seeing this project progress cheers cheers cheers

Thanks Dal I've not taken on a paint job like this and dont want to spoil this head so Ive bought another one that only needs the hair and headband repainting so I will give that a try before I even think of starting on this one I'll give Brownboots a call if I get stuck thanks for letting me know cheers cheers

Sorry Guys I'm not trying to cheat on this but haven't started to paint the head-sculpt from the start of this feed but my new head-sculpt arrived today and I couldn't resist having a bash up with him and Specialist Bagley What do you all think



Out in the bush Elias and Bagley are on a routine patrol hunting a VC tunnel complex



"Elias it's too quiet... the Jungle is too still... I've gotta bad feeling.. some sh**storm is going to come down"

Suddenly a Branch snaps, and the metallic sound of a safety catch being released....................



"Hold your fire troop, keep your eye's peeled and when this opens up make every shot count, there's tunnel entrances all over thus stinking Jungle"..........



RATT-TA-TAT "Agggg Sarg I'm Hit there all over the place"..................



"Stay with me Troop, I'll keep you covered.. get outta this hellhole"........

"There's Charlie in the trees I got him"!!



That seems to be it Troop How's your wound is it bad"?

"No Sarge only got me in the canteen, bit bruised but will survive but need another M56"



TBC

Thanks Gary and Clive, I've been working on a new kit bash and have just got Elias a new 21st Century body with a few hand changes, I've also been making his sleeveless shirt taken from pictures I've found of the end scenes of Elias here's the kitbash so far





"Over there, a tunnel enrtance at the edge of the treeline"......



"Halt, hold the perimeter, watch out for booby traps they'll have claymores in the trees"



"Great work troop, we've sent Charlie heading to the tunnels keep your eyes peeled for blood trails"........



"Take it easy guys "Feeling Goods good enough" Wink

Took the guys outdoors today for a play Twisted Evil

Out in the 'Boonies' on a search and destroy mission hunting for Charlies tunnel complex...



"Hey guy's we need to keep our eye's peeled for entrances"..." keep your sh*t tight and your head wired".."Charlie has this valley booby trapped"'



"Over there I saw movement in the grass, lets take a look"



"Word from a Kit Carson Scout of a tunnel entrance near this Temple".................



"There look to the right looks like we found their nest".."We need a rat to sniff em out"....

"I'm right in there Sarge"



"Careful down there troop there's word they have these tunnels booby trapped"..

To be continued..................

Preview..............................



Coming up could this be the end for Elias??,, only time will tell..............................
