Well the second picture is Dickie 3 isn't it..? Or is it Dickie 2..? No I'll say Dickie 3...

The first one says to me Cromwell, but I daren't think it is really...

The third one could be anybody, looks more like a blurred face to protect the innocent...

Well done G23B (is that some sort of 'droid in Star Wars) I think I have one on the other too...

Second one is Henry VII, not Dick III isn't it?

Dunno about the other two though. I can see the first one in my head.. thinknig Italian renaissance...but can't think what it's called

Matt is correct, that is Henry VII Saviour of England from Yorkist Villainy, a parsimonious and wonderful king, may all praise him.

I admit the close resemblance to Dick the Turd's eyes, but that is only passing.

Ok the other two are, starting from the top.

Albrecht Durer
Galileo

More soon.

Durer? Aaaacchhh....'Self portrait with gloves'! With the stripy hat on? Damn.

Wouldn't have got Galileo though.

yes that is the one, he also looks like Richard, the Albert Square market super of a few years back.

I wouldn't have got Galileo either but just checking to see if there were any real geeky types out there, fortunately they have not materialised.

Giz us a chance mate. It's taken me months to peddle over from the other forum and catch up with the gossip on this one. I got em all straight away.
Oooo why's the chair getting hot?
I got Durer and Richard.
Not Galileo but who's to say I wasn't about to dive into my geeky library and ferret him out.

Annie that is not Richard the III but Henry VII, I meant Durer looked like Richard out of Eastenders.


Galileo was a swirve ball. muhahhah

"Yorkist Villainy"?

We're a good lot, us. Only villainous to those on the other side of the west windbreak. :D
