He-Man: Masters of the Universe

As you can probably tell from the majority of my posts, I grew up in the 80's and 90's. As a child I was a massive fan of He-Man. I must have had at least half of the action figures ....... I'm not claiming to have had all of them as I know I was at least missing Ram Man :( .  I remember playing with my mates and shouting "I have the power" at the top of my voice when we had plastic sword fights.  I even had the Prince Adam figure so I could turn him into He-Man when I shouted it!

I've been meaning to paint this team for the past 6 months; I just haven't had the time to do it. So, finally, here it is!

The Masters of the Universe

He-Man and Man at Arms

Man at Arms, Teela and Stratos

Stratos and Man E Faces

Skeletor and Beast Man

Evil Lyn and Trap Jaw

Tri Klops and Mer Man

I'm still missing Ram Man!

AC Siena 2010/11 Away Kit

I was trawling my way through the internet looking at red and black kits to paint up.  Having gone through the current 4 English divisions, I decided to look at Serie A.  Newly promoted from Serie B, AC Siena's away kit from their Serie B 2010/11 winning side grabbed my attention.

Here's how it turned out on the little plastic men.

Painted on original subbuteo LW figures and LW bases

East Germany 1988 - 1990

I've been asked to paint an East Germany kit crica 1988 / 90.  At first I thought it would be like the 70's kits, just plain blue with a with collar and "DDR".  I then realised its a blue version of the Holland '88 kit with the diagonal pattern underneath!

I think it looks nice in blue, I can't say I recall seeing this kit before (which may be why I have the dates wrong?!?).  I've enjoyed the challenge of painting this kit up.

Painted on 2K10 figures and Superfooty bases.  Both available from World Table Soccer
