  • As promised, introducing... (pics)

    Howdy everyone - hate to interrupt any important discussions, but just wanted to hold up my promise of showing off my little project (made possible by the help of you all). He is, as of yet, nameless - any suggestions?
    Thanks again for helping a guy mix his heritage and his hobby :-patriot:







    *Edit* - I changed photo hosts - hope this works now...

            look at his eyes! he's a real killer! id fight along side him.

            you should try marketing your little men as soon as you get a name.

            the RDF action figure,
            all rank marking could be made availible
            all isued wepons supplied
            of course there would need to be a female modle
            get the irish army to support you venture

            hay, you could be on a winner, id certinly buy
            "Fionn of the Fianna" with his golden locks and mean looking faicial hair.

            i like your work!!!!!!

              Yeah it's good. But for the really authentic Irish Army model you'd want the fat barrack rat figure, complete with FUB mug and disgruntled facial expression. If you wanted to really push the boat out you make talk, just like Action Man used to! He could say things like: "I don't care, I'm on my bleedin' ticket soon!" and "****in' baggers!"

                        I have to admit good work Tex. Real good in all fairness. The uniforms look good along with the weapons.
