    @matthew here's the seller I got mine from:

    They NEED to be sprayed with varnish before wetting, and just paint the water on with a paintbrush. Make sure you varnish afterwards or it might fall off the fig.

    Here's my derby figs:

    Thanks :D some are neater than others. It's taken me a lot of pots of varnish to get the right combinations. Sadly my printer has now died, so I'm not doing any more at the minute. But if I get a few more orders in I'll buy a new printer (I charge £6.50 - there's printing on the bag, and they come with a helmet and accessory).

    Of course these are done from people who aren't big into lego, so they seem happy with the quality, and they're better than some I've seen for sale...but I think I can do better on the hand drawn bits certainly.

    Just thought I'd post previous ideas similar to what has been said, but just in case anybody could use what has already been designed by others...

    I've finally pulled together my Nativity scene for this year!

    Nice work @Andhe. I like the use of christmas cards as the background :)

    @andhe: this is really lovely. I particularly like your three wise men.
    Next year I'm definitely aiming for full-on winter village, complete with a church (or maybe school) with nativity, Christmas market, winter sports etc. Best start Jan 1st, eh? ;)

    You should add Jar Jar Binks, Batman and a monkey. Everything looks better with a monkey.
    I literally just spat tea everywhere, classic.

    Cheers. The backgrounds were slightly accidental, in that it was built to display on my mantelpiece, and the cards were there. But then rearranged to provide suitable backdrops :p
