This guy is exactly how I would make a hang man! (except I wouldn't have thought of that head)

I also really like the noose, and I am glad you used only Lego pieces for it. The rubber bands work realyl well as the twists. Overall a cool fig, and a great prop!

My thoughts exactly. If ever I make a hanging scene, I'll look into that noose.

Great noose, and the head looks good for the fig. I'll also remember this design if I ever get around to making a noose.

Amazingly realistic–looking noose. I am glad you are updating so often. (Should I say that? Maybe I've jinxed it :).)

Edit: I just realized the different colored backgrounds for each. Looks nice in the gallery.

Edit 2, several months/years later: I'm fixing my signature, it was missing the 'c'.

Like everbody else said (aren't I original?) I like the noose.

But, I think you should've choosen the older style hood, or put a cape on this guy...I don't think the hood with nothing else looks very good.

Those figs are great. My favs are the fisherman, the hangman, and the smith, but they are all great.
I wonder which townsperson will be next? I'm hoping for a barkeeper!!! :wink:

I have to dissagree with you on that one Modesty,that hood screams hangman to me.

I'm glad that the noose works convincing for you guys. :wink:
By the way, here is a shot of the noose in action; I already used it in my city square.

For today's character(s):
These two gipsies are entertaining the crowd with a violin and a dancing bear.

Great action shot of the noose!

These next guys are good too. I like the bellville bear (been thinking of how to incorporate one myself, you beat me to it). The faces and hair are jsut fine, but I don't like the violinist's torso, I can't get past the fact that it is from a western set and has bullets in the belt. The red works well though.

Again, thanks for sharing, I continue to enjoy them.

Neat (I'm running out of different things to say each time you post a new character :lol:). When I first saw that bear in the thumbnail, I thought it was playmobil, silly me.

Arrgh! I wouldn't have noticed it if you hadn't said it. Arrgh! :wink:

I've seen the hairbrush used before, but I don't recall the lever used as a bow.

I was kidding :oops: . I wasn't really mad, but I hadn't noticed it. I'll edit my other post with a wink. Sorry.

Ya know, cool animals/accessories aside, I think the thing that impresses me most about your characters is your careful choice of torsos and heads. The heads & torsos you've chosen do an excellent job of conveying that minifig's character!

Personally, I've always had trouble picking good head/torso combinations. Most of my minifigs end up being unchanged from the original set they came from... :(
