Monty Python and the Holy Grail figures

Hey everyone! This set of figures was one of the first group I made, and it was completely inspired by Armothe's versions. They were one of the things that inspired me to get into this hobby hardcore. A few months ago the originals were destroyed by water, and in the meantime I came up with a much better method for applying the printed fabric.

Today is my birthday, and my wife is out of town, so I decided to make them again as a gift to myself. I added all the squires and a few other figures. Enjoy!

Awesome job! I'd love to see these guys re-enacting scenes from the movie - knees bent running about, running away, etc.
BTW, how'd you make the coconuts - cut the tops off of taps?

Thanks, I am pretty sure I will have some scenes ready for Brickworld this year. I have plenty of ideas, just not much time right now. The coconuts are the bottom half of two goblets (I ordered 100 on bricklink so I figured I could hack up a few). The key is to make sure to leave part of the stem for the figure to hold onto. :D

These are awesome customs! The packs are amazing with the fabric bedrolls. I also love all of the great choices of weapons and armor, and of course the torso and shield designs.

P.S. Happy birthday! :)

I love these guys, but I think Galahad should have brown hair and Bedevere could have a black grill helm. Other than that these are great! :D Can't wait to seem some MOC's using them.

Wow, these look very accurate! My favorite is Sir Robin. Probably because of the bard/singer guy that sings about him though. :lol: Not only are the figs great, but the little roads a neatly crafted as well. I too would love to see these incorporated into a MOC!

those.... are .... AWESOME.

freakin awesome vignettes! I love 'em!
my fave is arthur because of the way you captured how overloaded his serf is (and i know this isnt his quote, but its still appropriate ("help, help, i'm being oppressed!"))

These are great :D :D
These would look great on my desk.

I'd like to see how you'd do a Tim the Enchanter fig

I'd say those are some right proper English Kaniggets you've made there!

Well done indeed. The chest as a backpack is ingenious!
