Forestmen Style Torso's

Postby Redav » Thu Mar 14, 2013 5:44 am

I've had a bit of a scour looking for torso's that would fit in with with the Forestmen (1, 2, 3, 4) faction. Aside from the Dark Forest ones (5, 6, 7) and the CMF Forestmen fig, I'm not sure that I've found much else.

Do others use any others?

Eh, maybe not. A forestman noble perhaps? Although that idea itself is a bit of a stretch. :lol:

I know the leprechaun is a bit of a stretch, hence my "varying degrees" comment, but you have to remember that the forest men can come from a variety of backgrounds. Robin Hood himself was a noble who became a forest bandit. I imagine the leprechaun torso going on a real smooth-talker who helps smuggle things past checkpoints or distracts passing merchants while his buddies position for an ambush.


Anyway, a few more I didn't have time to mention earlier:

CMF Elf
CMF Viking
Kingdoms Scale Mail
Hunchback from Vampire's Crypt

The Knights Kingdom one that Bigger Jim posted is also good, and I'll mix in brown, tan, or gray peasant torsos too.

Thanks guys, there was some good ones in there and the hunchback one was one I'd not seen. It's certainly given some options, all of which I'll have to BrickLink :)

Hey,

Lots of SW torsos can be mixed in, particularly if you switch out the arms to fit in with your color scheme:

I'd suggest looking through some of the figures from the pirate theme:

The Holiday Elf from the forthcoming CMF S11 has a suitable torso.
