The face throws off the rest of the figure which looks good; it just looks too messy. Perhaps use some lighter hues so you could better see the face beneath the sharpie? Because the darker tones tend to outdo the typically black coloring of the expressions on minifigure's heads' faces. Wink

It's good, but the arms are missing something as the whole figure looks covered up except the arms which are like clean. The face camo is also a bit messy. Wink

I like it a lot, unlike TD I think that the arms show how soldiers varied with uniforms. This one probably like a uniform without sleeves, it just shows how troops are different, also nice job with the m4 catridge. Although I have to agree with everyone else, the face-paint doesn't look so good.

Nice, but I still think paint works much better. Teebs, you should give painting a shot! Smile

Or it could show how hot it is in Vietnam...

Like everyone else I have to say the face isn't the best. But not because of the paint. It's camouflage! There isn't a preset way it should look. I think it would be better if it stretched around to the sides more instead of just the front.

Definitely not. I only modify minifigs, even I find modding LEGO bricks sacrilegious.

Well you CAN use a trick I use. Cover the area you want to sharpie with a layer of scotch tape... Smile

You will see this done in my next MOC.

Again, I love the minifig. I like even more how you got rid of the annoying toy story green. Smile

Eh, painting/modifying actual LEGO bricks for MOCs isn't for me. LEGO is already so diverse when MOCing that I don't see a need for paint. In fact, I've seen some pretty good brickbuilt camo tanks.

Pretty sweet fig ThunderBlade! Just one thing though, if you wanted the camo paint on the face, make it around the head, not a small patch.

Shocked

As long as the intent is to provide facial camouflage... but yes, the face would look fine with no sharpie at all.

It looks fine, but I think you should have gone with an M1 or BF dark green helmet Wink.

He might have wanted to do that, but I still think he should have gone with those helmets.

The figure was very well made, good job. Did you use the new Toy Story Army men?

Very well done, but I prefer Revell model building colours.
And I don't think they already had M4s in these days, maybe give him a Tommy gun or something like that.
