Were you trying to amalgamate Jerry Cornelius and Jimmy Savile into one decidedly unwholesome-looking character? :P

Seriously though, great paintjobs and fun theme! Wish I had that figure in the centre.

Haha. Those are great! Has the hair on the marine been added to? It just seems to be 'bigger' than I remember. The colours are fantastic. I've got some marines that I want to use as mercenaries and this has given me some great food for thought. Great stuff!

What you have achieved is sheer diabolical disgusting artistic genius. Revel in your madness, I say, as I have not seen such since Archive Miniatures issued a 28mm figure of "Ayatollah Khomeni, Evil High Priest" over 30 years ago... lol

Yeah that fellow is Brother Quiff with a bit of extra added volume to his coiffure.  Marines had so much more style back in the day! :)

Nice painting - the off white in the stripes is effective in making them pop.

Cheers! I've just attempted to colour balance the picture a bit. It looked fine on my laptop but overly bright on my monitor and phone. Maybe my laptop screen need calibrating? New lighting set-up and I'm just hoping for the best with the pictures!

I simply adore the mix of old retro bright colours with yet an attention to not making them clash. The weathering on top of an already sublime painting is icing on the cake.
