Rummaging through my older teams, I came across old Liverpool and Brasil teams that had seen better days. Many of the figures in both teams had been broken and reglued back together. I thought these 2 teams would be ideal to use for my repainting project.
I started to repaint the Liverpool kit first. after completly stripping it down to the white plastic, I decided to repaint it once again in an all red strip, using gold as a secondary colour. Using a chinese takeaway menu and an Inter Milan away strip from a few season ago as inspiration, here's how the team has turned out: meet The Golden Dragons!
The second team i had to repaint was the old Brasil strip. This team had 6 out of the 10 players broken so I've replaced most of the team with new Santiago HW T2 figures. See if you can spot the differences between the players!
I took quite a bit of time to think what kit to paint up instead of Brasil; with a green and yellow base combo it was quite limiting and I didn;t want to replicate a kit that I already knew of. Then one night, whilst watching a re-run of the film The Running Man, I was inspired to the paint the team up as follows:
The team has been entered into my solo league with the name of "TFC Running Man". Hardly original I know, but fun all the same!
