7TV Tee-Hee

Taking a break from Empire of the Dead stuff decided to paint something nice and bright. So here is my Version of Tee-Hee from the bond film 'Live and Let Die' . A classic movie In my opinion some don't like it but I do.  Anyway Tee Hee for me is one those Iconic henchmen and here is my attempt at recreating in miniature format.




In the film Kanaga/Mr.Big is blown up by Bond using a bullet from his shark gun supplied by Q and Tee Hee is thrown from a train at the end losing his robotic arm in the process. So in my eyes he is still at large and available to hire! 7TV games he will be a merceneary for hire with a newer robotic arm.

 


The Body is that of a Copplestone KGB man from this pack (guy in middle) I removed his pistol/hand and replaced with the Claw arm from Crooked Dice's Failed Experiment Arm sprue. I then just puttied on some sunglasses for him and applied a suitable paint scheme.

Jaws has been started also as well as a little work on some more security teams. Empire of the Dead wise work has begun on the Lycaon set and the N'ver Do Wells

I'm thinking of doing a No More Room In Hell game some time in September it will just be a one off and I'm not to sure of what figures I'll be using (except of course Zombies will be included) so keep your eyes peeled

    1. When I first saw the arm I thought Tee Hee and it had been pottering about my mind for a while. Nik-Nak is another but still don't know how to do him yet

    1. Thanks Bryan In my head I meant to do him in a red suit. It kinda went orangey during painting but still looked good so I left it. But when putting this post together and finding the top pic it matched up pretty well!

  4. Would you mind sharing your paint scheme for the skin tones?
    It looks spot on!

  5. Thanks not at all. The skin is basically just Scorched Brown, highlighted with scorched brown/skull white highlight then washed with very thin scorched brown to sort of blend the two.

    I have done some other African-American in some previous posts if you want a look.

  9. Great work to create an awesome figure!

    And there I was please with myself for pinning a part on to my first mini over the weekend. Kind of pales in comparison to your figure.

  11. Excellent figure! He is one of my favorite henchmen in movies, right after Baron Samedi from the same movie, Oddjob from 'Goldfinger', and Mr Kidd & Mr Wint from 'Diamonds Are Forever.'

    Keep up the excellent work!

    1. Thanks. It was nice to paint something bright for a change all these Victorian colours are quite dark and muted.

  13. Nice conversion. I've wondered about getting some of the Copplestone spies and henchmen for a while now. Mind you, the thing I really remember about Tee Hee was his big smile and all those gleaming teeth!

    1. Thanks. My thinking was being thrown from a train he's now got nothing to smile about until he gets his revenge

  15. That is spot on! One of the great henchman! And you are quite right, he could have survived that and still be about.

    Well doen on the conversion, it is hard to see that he is converted, which means it is a job well done!!
