My vote goes to finishing up the Penguin stuff, always good to get a complete set.

so true! Ok, well, I still need thug set #2 but I am keen to get that gang done
Funnily enough I decided that the white didn't work on the Wayne boxes (not yet redone), but that meant redoing the skip too:

Just asking, but what the heck are "Skips" for? I don't think we have those in the states. Are they anything like dumpsters?

And only the AK one is any good sadly. I'd like a BTAS scarecrow, personally. I'm tempted by the AK scarecrow box simply to do the militia as Deathstroke henchmen with masks.

TP^DC Deputy Manager wrote:Yep. Skips are dumpsters

Well, sort of. They are used for industrial or building waste rather than general garbage.

Having a bit of a tidy, reorganising my batbag, ended up making a bat to-do list as I need to look at scenery storage. In no particular order -
Ace Chem - rest of the factory still needs attention. Lights painted, signs added, some graffiti.
Swat Van - redo police writing. Add a riot grill.
Police barricades - stabilise with other feet.
Paint - Batwoman, Killer Croc, rest of Penguin Crew, Solomon Grundy, Damian, Arkham Knight Batman
Build - Court set 1, Butcher, Super secret conversion project...

So first is the swat van


Decided it also needed to be grubbier. Now, any one know a good source for fine mesh?

I always thought skips where either 1) a waste receptacle for my neighbours to fill up when I'm not looking, or 2) a strangely tasty snack that fizzes on the tongue.

So the secret project is, clearly, that I'm building a suited TV arrow Deathstroke, using Benjamin Orchard and Slade's (masked) head. The question is his other hand - pistol, cane or staff? I was going to do a pistol but that's readily assumed to be on his body. The staff is obviously appropriate to Origins but would jar with the aesthetic. Would a cane work? Or indeed just leave it? Regardless I'll be making whatever it is from scratch.
I'm leaning towards cane. It would be either paperclip or brass rod. He'll still have Orchard's normal sword too. Then, if I do do a cane should it be to the ground, held like Ra's, or behind him echoing the origins pose?

For reference:
Ra's
Spoiler:


(not mine)

Orchard
Spoiler:


Deathstroke (origins)

Oh, now that's clever! Personally, I'd use the the unmasked head, that still gives you a 'complete' Origins DS and I can't recall Slade ever wearing both mask and suit in the show at the same time, but it'll look awesome either way and I can't wait to see it! I say go for a pose similar to Ra's.
