Pumpkin head "The Rat Catcher!?"

    Hi Gang

    I havent posted for a while so I thought I would let you see my latest effort

    Having bought from Sean Green his exquisite little gem "Pumpkin head" I decided to do a small conversion to make something a little different

    I lengthened his legs to make him stand more upright and added a "RCD" (Rat catching device!) instead of his sword and converted his lantern into a rat cage

    A verlinden rat from the spares box completed the conversion I hope you like it

    As usual from Sean, a little masterpiece and I apologise to Sean for messing about with his creation!

    Cheers

    John

    Very fun piece. Leghtening the legs makes all the difference! Very creative.

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for all you comments he really was a "fun" piece to convert and paint

    Robin, Sadly this figure is no longer available It was originally sculptured by Sean Green and sold a few years ago I keep telling Sean to start "pushing" the putty again as he has a great knack at producing the right pose and "must have figure" sorry I dont have any SBS photos but he originally had a Lantern and a large sword blade both of which I replaced

    Cheers

    John
