Growing up as a kid in the late 80's / early 90's, Subbuteo wasn't my only passion.  One of my favourite cartoons of the time was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  I remember playing in the fields behind my house pretending to be Michaelangelo throwing around 2 sticks that were tied together with a piece of string to act as nunchuckas.

I thought that it would be fun to make a Subbuteo team of TMNT.  Here's how it turned out.

Well this was an interesting order!

I've had fun researching, creating and painting this team up for a friend of mine.  The request for this team was girls in their underwear with a saucy flicking keeper.  Hopefully I've managed to pull it off!

"I want her to be blonde, have MASSIVE boobs and be naked"  well meet Pamela.  At least the collar and cuffs match!

Again, this team has been made to order and is an example of the fantasy teams that I can produce for you.  If you have an idea, no matter how obscure, I can make it for you (or at least try to!)  This team will shortly be making an appearance in a well known UK league.  Look out boys!

Flicking Goalies

Well I've been a bit busy recently.  I'm surprised at the amount of interest I've had and all the postive comments.  Thankyou to everyone who has been so kind!

Here's an example of some flicking keepers that I've painted up this week.  4 sets are basic, 1 set (the new England kit) is more detailed.

L - R - Standard Sky Blue, Standard Green, new England kit, Standard Yellow, Standard Orange

This is a representation of the current England goalkeeper kit and an example of the higher detailed paintwork that can be done.  All handpainted, no decals.

All of the above have been made to order.

Painting Subbuteo

I love playing Subbuteo, but equally I love to paint Subbuteo. 

Here's a few kits that I have painted up

Deportivo Wanka

"Home" kit for Lancashire Pumas player Ste Key
"Away" kit for Lancashire Pumas player Ste Key
Both kits for Ste Key

Both teams have been made to order.  If you would like a handpainted team of any fantasy design, please contact me.
