The picture may make it look a bit better than it is, but one eye is about at the edge of the mouth, and the other eye is nowhere close to lined up with the edge of the mouth. :-\

The only acceptable solution to the printed head problem that I've found is to replace all of them with moulded ones. :lol: Even ones that aren't off-centred usually look bad.

It is a shame, that they moved to this cheap painted ones. Especially cause printing quality has been steadily decreasing for years :(

I've had some time to put a few more figures together (some fully-armoured knights this time).

First, I tried using the new Super 4 pauldrons for these two knights:



I really like the new pauldrons. I'll probably try to find some without the lion printing (especially for the knight on the left). I could take the printing off of some, but I'd rather not in case I find a better use for them.

I also made this white knight, a lot of the parts for whom came from DuoPacks 5166 and 6847. The one thing that I might change is to give him a silver swordbelt instead of the white one.

Great stuff. I'd say definitely a silver belt on that guy.

Great ones!

Better not clean them - they cost a fortune, compared with the non printed ones...

I also made this white knight, a lot of the parts for whom came from DuoPacks 5166 and 6847. The one thing that I might change is to give him a silver swordbelt instead of the white one.

Agree on the belt!

I really wish he'd have the older knight legs... so so rare in white  :'(

Great stuff.

Thanks!

Thanks! And yes, I'll wait until I find some plain ones. :)

I'd say definitely a silver belt on that guy.

Agree on the belt!

I'm starting to think that too. I was trying to find another use for the white belts. :lol:

Aha, well, I know how you feel about these legs. :lol: I'll have to try the older ones when I try the other belt.
