It was a pretty random selection to add to the display but was pretty cool

It was a pleasant surprise to see :desert:.

If you were to ask me :originalaf: rarely gets acknowledged or the appreciation the line deserves... it's refreshing to see someone (especially from the U.S.) look beyond the familiar characters, notably the Euro exclusives, & dig a little deeper to for their inspiration.

I'd be intrigued to view other :originalaf: figures done in this modern style, which really suites them, & can only imagine how good :ground: or :Aussie: would look.

so, does that mean you ripped off Jamar? :P

Nah, I asked him if I could copy first, and credited him everywhere (like in this post) afterwards. Like I do when I want to copy anyone's work. ;)

I would hate be be one of those turds who steals ideas and then takes the credit for it, that's just kid's mentality.
But youre not bothered...
Sounds to me that Dark Horse is the Faker. He's clearly got his knickers in a Twistoid. :-D :stirring:

On a side note..
I recently realised why I liked the modern :cobra: Para Viper enough to actually go out & buy one:

Holy crap you're right! Night Patrol was my favourite vintage figure! How could I not see this before.

I liked the Desert Rat as well. Might have to copy it ;)

Amen, Steve. Nice to see something other than the regular cast. For the next pod cast they should do the Ground Assault trooper.

Believe it or not, especially for anyone who has listened, but the shows are mapped out well in advance to allow us time to research and Boss Fight Studios to tackle an update. Episode 5 will not just cover Ground Assault, but also Mountain & Arctic and Naval too. Each of the guys will take on a character and work in their own interpretation.

Desert Rat and Sparrowhawk were some of my favourites there :)
