Created this figure to play with tattoo decals, so never had an exact idea in my head, rather figure developed as I went along, using up stuff from my kit box. To be honest end product turned out really well.
The decals purchased off ebay - apparently based on David Beckhams tattoo’s. I thought they were a nice set, wanted sleeves & angel with open wings caught my eye. Decals went on ok ish, decal paper a little stiff & curled up on edge’s. So had to apply more decal fixer than usual (use microscale stuff). I actually think decal paper I purchase off ebay is better to work with so in the future will produce my own tattoo decals.
Head was a copy I made from a head purchased off ebay. Body went with a more muscular less flexible body style from ZC. Not a favorite of mine tbh. Arms are far too stiff - its a two hand job to move arms. But for this job - a ridged body was needed, so this ZC body got promoted from my “naff body box”. Painted upper body & arms so they matched head.
So happy found a reason to use my Scar rifle with punisher logo on mag’s. Tried combat boots at first which looked ok, but ordered some trainers from ebay, which I think look great on end figure. T-shirt & jeans historic purchase from ebay
So in summary using tattoo decals works well though I think it’s something you can produce yourself, to as good as, if not better finish. I dont think for me I will be doing many as my bashes tend to fall within real world themes. You do encounter tattoos’s but not often and usually covered up by layers of combat gear lol. If I did more PMC or made up characters then tattoo decals could really be used well to create some very interesting unique figures.
Right enough typing - loads of pictures;
