During lockdown I caught a documentary on the linoleum manufacturing history in Kirkcaldy and it’s spread through the world and it’s down fall and it’s current revival. At the end of the program the focused on its other uses and highlighted a local artist who done some excellent designs and I’m sure she also said it was relaxing/therapeutic.

This winter lockdown has been harder than the first one. It’s probably the long winter nights and shitty weather. How ever throughout this pandemic I’ve kept a little bit of sanity and distraction with my wee projects which I’ve posted on here. Something to get me away from the telly.
Anyway, I’ve now finished my latest.
Taking inspiration from one of my first GN’s bought back in the day I’ve taken the “pause” in the fist fight in Vendetta in Gotham. Especially liked this as it was drawn by the great Cam Kennedy.
I took one of the Dredd knock offs from eBay and made a few adjustments. I’m pretty happy with the results.
The Batman was a 10” action figure I picked up for £10 on eBay. Broke his legs and smoothed out the body armour that was on the figure with milliput. His cape was made from some model clay left over from my other projects. I’m not as taken with my results with Bats but as I will mostly be looking at him from the back, I’m fine with that.
I haven’t done a base for these 2 as it should be in the playground and would end up too big for the space I have left. So, I’ve decided to treat them as “Elf on the Self” and I can situate them “paused” where ever I want as if they’ve been at it all night.

If anyone knows of model kits that are ripe for conversion please point me in their direction.
I already have possible kits I could tweak for a Dante, Sam Slade, the Harlem Hero’s, Deadlock, Mongrol and Earl Reagan. That wish list should keep me busy for a while.
Hope you can all see the images.
