PostSubject: custom and recustomized animals Part 1   Sat Aug 24, 2013 9:13 pm

I have been busy over the summer so have many of our talented forum friends. As most of you know I love African animals and hope--one day--to create a huge diorama. Here are some customized and recustomized animals!

Awesome shawn! Congrats! I guess some members here would rathaer cry than repainting PV figurines Very Happy
maybe you should use at least one of the Scimitar Oxes to change the pose of the figurine. Maybe a standing and watching one?

Wow, there are some amazing models there Shawn! Harriet's and Anna's Topis are gorgeous, as are their Nyala. I'm amazed to see three of the females! (I just got one.) Very impressive collection.

I think the running ones are Playvisions and the sitting ones Kaiyodos repaints.

Thank you everyone and thanks to the talent of forum members. Yes, Jarda is correct, the running ones are Playvisions and the sitting ones are Kaiyodos repaints. They are mongooses, but they were not banded mongooses.

Very nice pics Shawn, your African savannah is always full of good surprises Very Happy 

Did you make the African pied crows or did you customized something ?

I got them from a dollhouse website call Miniatures and they were just plain crows. I added the white to them. I also got the African parrots from a dollhouse/small toys website as well as the squirrels.
