Nice gypsies. Next moc you make should be a gypsy wagon! :wink:
I can't get past the fact that it is from a western set and has bullets in the belt.

I thought those were belt buckles. :?
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!

I totally agree with that, that's why I think the fisherman is cool, the viking head just fits with the theme. It's hard to explain.

I don't think it really matters, in castley clothes and with accessories, it will blend in.

Great figs! The use of the bear is clever, and your head and torso combinations work very well.

My only gripe, however, is the length of the bow. While the lever piece is a very clever idea, the piece shown here looks better (at least to me, anyway). Still, the lever would probably work in my high school orchestra; as my teacher says, "Why pay full price for a bow if you don't use the whole thing?"

Can't wait to see the next update! :D

Yes, I agree that it looks more realistic. :wink:
I thought it would look too big in this scene though.

The next character is this hunter, who just reaches for an arrow to shoot a nice fat pheasant (or two :wink: )

I like this guy. I, myself, am finding more and more uses for that head. :) The arrow being pulled out is very good and your pheasants are great. Good job!

Excellent minifis, i've been seeing them recently over at duney's blog. :)

I really like the use of the minifig hands on several of the animals, i think it's a neat idea, and the lever switches are clever too.

That is the Sir Rascus head, who has been in half of the castle sets from the last two years. He is also a viking and in the 2006 castle line.

I don't know about bricklink though.


Great job again! I really like those pheasants. :D

Wow, great fig. I really like the pheasants, and the bow is cool.

That's Rascus' head from many KK2 sets.

I like all of these, but that Western torso just doesn't work for me. Oh well.

That archer isn't going to get many pheasants with blunted arrows... :wink:

Your teacher and mine must have been taught at the same place :roll: .

$0.45 a piece

Also, while not a huge fan on the heads, each of the KK2 heads are useful, IMO, for army building if you're going for different heads on each character. I am currently building my dark army (lead by a few witch doctors) and while I can't have a different head on each guy, using them mixed up with others does look quite fine, even if their expressions are a little weird.

Back to the topic, these guys are awesome and I love the interesting uses of specific pieces.

I like him, I like him alot. The bow is great,and I think the head works very well. The peasents are very creative and they work great. (Are those brown capes I spy?)

As always, keep it up!

Those pheasants are excellent! It's ideas like these that make me wish I had brown capes.

The fig is my favorite, too. :D

I think the best part of a lot of these characters are the animals with them!

You should make an animals folder. Heh. :D
