Adebayor, Spurs x2

I had a quick scan down my list of blog posts, and thought to myself: it's been a while since I did any Spurs ones!

Sooo... I had a scroll down my repaints folder of pics, and when I got to Spurs, these were the first! They're stored alphabetically, after all!


As much as Adebayor has been a bit of a maligned character, I think he was pretty decent when he could be bothered!! I like this sculpt too! As for the repaint; I think this is one of those cases of clear straight well executed lines (if I say so myself!!) elevating a pretty straightforward kit to being a great repaint! 

This one's alright as well!!

Bournemouth

It's been a long while since I posted any Bournemouth figures here! And it's fair to say Bournemouth have come a long way since I did!

Here are some from a recent order:


Love this one! It's the first time I've used a fluorescent paint, and I think it came out great!

Artur Boruc, who has recently regained his place in the Bournemouth first team.


And here's an outfield player too- Sylvain Distin, who had made 16 appearances for Bournemouth in 2015-16.

It's Coming Holme!

And now for something completely different!

OK, not completely! Still Corinthian repaints, with a dash of remodelling thrown in, but not something I've done much of before.

Here's a figure based on a Football Manager '19 regen player, as featured in the YouTube series: "It's Coming Holme".

Basically, the guy who presents the channel made up a team (Holme FC) and put them in the lowest league possible. I think it was 3 or 4 divisions below the Conference. Anyway, Mick Powell, or should I say Sir Mick Powell(?!) emerged as a teenager in the first season, and scored in every division on the way to the Premier League.

As a result, I decided to make a figure of him, and send it to the guy who makes the videos. And here he is:


I was pleased with how it turned out, and it got some very nice comments from Lollujo himself, and many people who watch the channel. It has even featured in a few of the videos.

Incidentally, there has been some debate over whether the Holme shirt is dark green or black! I went with dark green for this one. 

And where would Sir Mick be without his inspirational manager?!


I threw this figure in too! Minor remodel on the hair, and a pair of glasses stolen from a Lars Lagerback figure which I had used for another remodel!

Seaman, QPR

While I have some 'regulars', and therefore clubs that I end up painting an awful lot of, QPR is not one of those clubs!

I painted a Ferdinand way back when, due to just having a spare one and wanting to try my hand at hoops... possibly for the first time. 

I painted a Francis, on account of having a spare Francis head after doing dome remodels!!

And lastly, for the time being at least, I did this:


David Seaman, in his QPR days. I did this one, again, partly down to having a spare, but also down to the thinking that, as a high profile player for a club that didn't get that many figures, he may catch someone's eye, and be a good addition to a collection somewhere.

The fact that it wasn't too complicated a kit played a part too!!

This ended up selling on ebay, if I remember rightly. If it didn't... I have no idea where it is now!!

Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard's Derby.

Well, it's been a busy weekend on the repainting front.

I finished 11 figures outright, am on the verge with a few more, have done 3 sets of Goalie glove repaints, and have been to Hobbycraft to top up my paints, including an experimental illuminous yellow!

I also managed to catch a bit of the play-off final...

Unlucky Frank, and unlucky to your 'Jobs for the boys' left back, Ashley Cole:


If only we hadn't contrived to beat ourselves in the play-off semi final... that could have been us not turning up in the final today!!

Just in case this has been too subtle for anyone: I'm very glad Villa won!! Games against Derby this season have just been too much fun... with one exception!
