28mm or 35mm Painted Hasira Kiboko: Dictator for Life.

There is a quote from a TV series "The Young Ones" from the 80's when the group of students discover oil in their basement and Mike (old student) takes charge and the immortal words are spoken "Viva El Presidente and Dictator for Life" or something very similar, these are the words I live by at work.

Anyway the figure a 35mm (32mm to eye level) giant from Matakishi's Tea House http://www.matakishi.com/ depicting president for life Hasira Kiboko in full regalia, I will probably use him as somebody who comes out of the ashes of the apocalypse leading an army in the USA but not before finding a nice outfit.Nice figure, had a lot of mold lines but eventually cleaned up nice and was a relatively easy paintjob, there are some comparison pictures to give you an idea of scale if you are thinking of purchasing one.



L to R, 28mm Foundry and 28mm Copplestone Castings.

  2. Nice! The scale isn't a problem, it's just an oversized dictator you don't wanna mess with.

  3. Another great fig! This one looks great, I like the overall dark scheme, he's got a lot of potential on the tabletop too. All of it morally reprehensible of course.

  6. If have given him a ginger skinhead and a pasty white completion, you could have painted him up as you!!

  7. Great work! Love the detail on the medals he "earned." He's suitably sized for one larger than life. Fine figure all-around. Regards, Dean

  12. Good job with Kiboko... He has a Winston Churchill vibe. The shorter guy reminds me of Mao Zedong
