Here's a new torso I just finished for my Torso Stickers Volume 2 Article.

Nice job as always. But I won't be printing any of that one out soon. I have nothing agaist female knights, I try to use as many as possible actually. But I'd rather outfit them in regular armor.

Here's another one:

Image

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this one. I'd like to do color variations, but I can't see the white shirt being any other color but white or maybe some off-white ivory or light blue. So that would leave mainly the vest, which I suppose could come in a variety of colors.

This torso will also be made available without the shoulder belt.

Any suggestions?

Hi Guys,

My apologies to Anthony for answering questions to him :oops:

The torso is a pirate torso. Anthony uses Adobe Photoshop I think. This is why his previous torso's and shields are available as .psd files.

It's ok Ben. I appreciate help when I can get it. It is a pirate torso, found in, to my knowledge, only two pirate sets. One of which was the big Imperial Port set (forget the exact name) that can out at the same time as the original Black Seas Barracuda. It's an awesome torso.

I plan to do about three or four more castle related Pirate torsos for Volume 2.

And yes, I do use Adobe Photoshop, as opposed to Illustrator. From what I've been told, Illustrator is a pretty spiffy program, wish I had it.

great job with all the torsos you have done. I plan to uses some and give the credit too. I was wondering how everybody else makes their stickers. I am kinda new to modifications.

Need more upper class citizens? Then rejoice, good sirs, and hope the commoners do not go into rebellion!

Image

This torso comes from the Imperial Armada series of the LEGO System Pirates, and only came in two sets, I believe.

This torso will be available in a few colors, as well as with or without the medallion.

That was a real official LEGO torso? That's hilarious! A fat lord minifig! A must have for sure. Thanks for bringing these hard to get torsos to us. There's enough character right there for a fun avatar. :lol: Oh, I've a million uses for a fat, pompus, arogant lord like that. Ah, the possibilities...

ps: I'm likely the only one who sees the humor in it but he he he anyway. :lol: :lol: :lol:

The Bodice Goddess returns! And this time she's dressed up in rawhide black leather! Woo!

Image

This is a pirate torso found in several sets, including methinks on the Black Seas Barracuda.

It will be available in the full variety of color variations.

Wow, These are very nice. one note though;

In referance to the brown vest on white shirt. The set you are thinking of is 6277 Imperial Trading Post http://www.peeron.com/inv/sets/6277-1, http://guide.lugnet.com/set/6277. Reliesed in 1992, it was the main Imperial Guard's base. It seems to be getting quite rare out there now days. (anyone want it?)

anyway back to the Torsos... I continue to injoy your work. Thanks!!!
