Buffalo Soldier: An Experiment

I was in a game store yesterday, and since I believe in supporting little brick and mortar stores, I had to buy SOMETHING. So I picked up some Bones. I did not need these Bones. I already had these and more from the Kickstarter. Still, like I said, if you want a local game shop, you should support it. So... what was I going to do with these extra troopers that I had no use for?

Well, that's what art is all about.

hello kitty, I think you could find in vending machines, as cell phone charms and what not. 

The original head I used was indeed from a cell phone charm that I purchased for about $11 at a Sanrio store in San Francisco. Sounds like a lot of money just for a little charm that I pulled apart, but I molded it so I could make dozens. Sold a small handful of those "Halo Kitty" soldiers, as we called them, at various conventions.

 

A friend showed me that 40K poster, but in my defense I had the idea before I saw it. (Not that I thought of it first -- I didn't, but I did think of it independently.)

Hm. Now I find myself thinking about plastic toy dino heads. They come in a variety of sizes, and I recently saw several in a toy bin for about 50c each that were about the size of a quarter...
