  1. Now, because I'm a sad bastard with no life, I've been having a go at a spot of badge/patch designing because of this thread:

    It's been mentioned that it would be nice to have Mr. Mushroomhead in the badge, so I've set about updating Lord F's original design due to MTP and new boots being introduced.

    Question is, keep the old El Mostacho, or use a regulation (no facial hair below the top lip) moustache?

    El Mostacho:


    Regulation Moustache:


    Answers on a postcard please.
  2. How about an old moustache and him in old dpm with a slr for the old and bold, and your regulation one for the young guns, two designs I know but just a thought

  4. There's nowt wrong with the current 'tash, nor the current eyes, so bugger off and leave 'em well alone, you vile heathen.

    The eyes need to be bloodshot and the nose slightly reddened, just to keep in character like.

  6. A Disonaro on the rocks would also make him look an onanist of the first order.

    I suspect that's not quite the image the redesign is seeking to convey? A bottle of that achingly trendy eastern European lager that's about 9% abv, costs a week's wages and which provides the imbiber not with beer goggles but beer laser eye treatment (by which I mean that, like a laser shone direct into the eye, it makes you completely blind) would be a better option, I'd contend.

    And keep the old tache. Otherwise there's a danger of him looking like David Seaman.

  7. Oh, it's based on you!
  8. As an Antipodean, therfore, not worthy to grace your shadows :) I reckon 'tache a-la porn. All the de riguer during the 70's early 80's amoungst a certain crowd of gentlefolk.
  9. Regulation is good, or a tour 'tache. "El Moustacho" is a bit village people

    You have rules now? Here's one of my g-gfathers, he is not in rig in this pic but was a Major, Royal Artillery when this was taken.


    His brother (a civilian) had a similar one and when he visited my great aunt her children would always plead for onion soup in the hope he could be sent home with bits of on ion stuck in his moustache.

  11. ^ Oh, where has it all gone? That elan, panache, je ne sais quoi when it comes to the 'tache. I say bring back the 'tache...not this ersatz clean skinned metroboy jobbies. Man up! :)
  12. Is the real reason for these Mo's is that he can have a hearty breakfast and then feed of it from the remnants during the rest of the day when he feels the need?

  13. Why not go the whole hog and change the regulations to allow lush, manly beards?

  14. You see there's too much mascilinity and not enough diversioty in the orginal and your designs.

    Here's my submission, it ticks all the PC boxes; Women, LGBT, kids, old knackers
