'Chracters/Scene from' MartinC: 'The Man Who Would Be King'

The man who would be king is a cracking movie

It's not in French despite the poster

Northstar produce the 3 most iconic figures as a set. I present to you - Billy Fish, Daniel Dravot and Peachy Carnehan.

If you've not seen it then you've missed out.


  1. Oh Billy Fish is my favourite!

  2. So awesome Martin. One of my all-time favourite films.

    I'm with you Dave, Billy Fish absolutely rocks!

    He has one of the best final lines: 'Gurkha foot soldier, not cavalry. Rifleman Majendra Bahadur Gurung wishing you many good lucks! Ayo Gorkhali!' (draws kukri and charges huge mob single-handedly)

    1. Women get to cry their eyes out listening to Adele and eating icecream straight from the tub.

      We watch 'The Man Who Would Be King' for the same cathartic effect. I defy any man not to tear up even a bit at that scene.

    2. So true. I must have seen that film over 10 times and have always found it difficult not to sniffle at the end.

    3. "No, just... just something in my eye... *sniff*"

  3. Great work, Billy fish is awesome

  4. Well done Martin, a great choice.

  5. Very fine work - those figures alone are almost enough to get me into colonial gaming.
    I only wish someone would make a figure of Christopher Plummer as Rudyard Kipling, the fourth great actor in that film.

  6. Super work.....really nice figures and cracking paint jobs
