Well, I've officially dabbled in fig-making! Here's two new figs inspired by some Batman sets I picked up yesterday:

The Fright Knight Shaman

The Fright Knight Champion

Special thanks to Dunechaser for giving me some helpful photography tips. Also, credit goes to Jastermereel for that cool warhammer design.

Those are excellent figs! Great use of the hair and helmet. What head did you use for the shaman?

This could be wrong, but I believe its the Death Eater head- a very versatile head for evil figs.

I like both of them! Awesome use of the Two-Face hair, I think I will use it on a young Daiken Ushu for TSR. The use of the Batman mask is ingenious, Now I dont need to modify it for Fright Knight use!

I think you're right. That one didn't occur to me, but it would have the teeth and make the eye holes black.

Thanks,
Josh

Actually it's the Killer Croc head. :P

Good guess, though, Hordesman!

Thanks for the comments!

Both are cool, but that Shaman is extreme! Without cutting your Lego you managed to create 2 beautiful characters. Keep it up. ( I hope Batman sets come here, I need them for my town ;) )

The shaman totally rocks! 8) Excellent use of the Batman cowl and Killer Croc head, but the shaman's wand/totem is also really, really cool.

Great job on both of these -- can't wait to see more!

Great stuff, I particularly like the Dark Shaman, very evil!

That shaman totally takes the cake, althoguh the other guy is perdy cool too. I like how the teeth are the most prominant thing, emphasized by the mask. Very nice use of batman parts!

(ps-the fluer de leis torso is pretty much my fav, so hard to go wrong there)

Nice! But what hair is that on the second fig?

Those, especially the shaman, are really, really cool. I couldn't tell what head it was at first either, I thought it might be a black skeleton head, then when I read the other posts I thought it was surely a Death Eater head, and then I finally found out what it really was. It's just the cowl shades it so it looks black. Lord Nev, that is Two-Face(from the new Batman line)'s hair.

Great use of a new head! At least something else works nicely with the batman helmet!

The way to angled the hair looks cool too, really anime-ish...

Great figs, especially the shaman.
I like how the face and mask are coordinated.
Btw,wunztwice in your P.S., you went wrong, because it's said fleur de lis :D .(sorry if I offended you by any way).
