Ice Cream Man

Posted by Dad's Army on 19 Apr 2019, 10:28

Here is the Asterix painter again...
No don't worry I won't show you a regulair Asterix figure!

But like a lot of you guys know, my biggest passion is not figures but...
Ice Cream hahahaha

So it was time to make another conversion for my 100th blog post celebration.
And this is what I made out of the Asterix character Fulliautomatix
The blacksmit from the Gaul village, who works near the hot fire could use a cold ice cream.
So after years of hot work, it's ice time for him now.

And this is what I made of the figure:

To see how I did convert this guy, look on my BLOG

I hope you like him :mrgreen:

Very nice, and very appropriate for your Hundredth Blog post; another really inventive conversion idea. :yeah:

I'm impressed that You resisted the urge to eat the ice cream long enough to photograph it. :mrgreen:

I never thought this until you said so. If only he had scooped the blue ice cream last!

Fantastic work. Your 100th blog post was well worth the visit. I did not realize the original figure was bare-chested. The shirt you painted on really fools the eye.

hahaha, that was my tought as well, maybe next time I convert him it can be a dentist from Hell :P

I am to lazy for that..
My GF said to make some dropping ice cream because the spoon wasn't that good.
On that moment red was my last color, and it looks funny and creepy now ;-)

Yeah, don't know why you missed the most important post here one the forum :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

But thanks guys,
it was fun converting this figure, and I hope to have ideas to convert others as well (I have so much of them now.... :oops: )
If you have a idea, please let me know, cause the poses arn't all good to do some conversion.
So any idea is welcome....

Yes Remco motivated me with his ice cream Gaul to buy Asterix comic yesterday. Hope Remco is fan of Le Scorpion that's my favourite

Almost changed the title of this topic: "Remco", but then I saw it's a seller of ice cream and not an eater! :mrgreen:

Fantastic conversion of this blacksmith! :thumbup:
