I like this. Neat use of the Superman hair piece. I'd considered using it in my latest MOC, but decided against it for various reasons. I think I like the use of the one piece palm tree in the back. It's subtle, but works really well at the right angle.
Thanks, QB! Yep, I love the Superman piece; it works really well for Jake "The Snake" Featherston, who the book describes as having oily hair. (In case you know nothing about Turtledove, Featherston is the Confederate Hitler and the main character).
Hikaro liked the palm tree use on Eurobricks; looks like I'll keep having to experiment with that "juniorized" piece.
This looks great! I really like your use of the plants with this, especially liking the fuller tree.
I also really like your guys. Very Nice!
Danke! Plants are in my top three favorite LEGO things to work with, I'd say.
About the guys: even they match the book: As I said before, Jake had oily hair, and all Confederate troops in Turtledove's series wear "butternut," the Confederate's word for khaki. The scowling PoP Dastan head kind of matches a "tobacco-spitting" face. Lol. Cap'n Jeb's uniform isn't described, but I'm assuming the Confederate officer corps kept their gray uniforms, though more utilitarian in design, and used "Smokey the Bear hats" like most everyone else. He's described as having reddish-brown hair and the classic French-style mustache and chinbeard, for which I used that Hogwarts professor what's-his-name head.
