Steam Punk figures

At the moment I'm exploring the theme of Steam Punk, which is Victorianesque Sci-fi, think Jules Verne's Nautilus. Lots of leather and brass which is a great source of rich colours and textures. It has become a popular style, The Doctor's Tardis has been done up in a steam punk style for it's last two incarnations. I normally work in card wire and modeling clay so I've been adding bits of found plastic (from The Scrapstore) to create goggles and other bits of mechanical paraphanalia.
In the photo you can see a nearly complete spaceman (if you look closely you can see the head is based on an archetyple British officer, complete with handlebar moustache)
