    I think if we could put glasses on William Mackenzie King it could make a decent Kevin Rudd placeholder.

    King:


    Rudd:



    If we could get rid of the hat... Michael Collins for Nicolas Sarkozy, that is if we decide to use him as head of the EU.

    Collins:


    Sarkozy:



    I'm looking around now, I'll update this post if I can think of more. However as you can see I'm going to be terrible at this. NikNaks you may not want my advice here. :lol:

    Alternately, if we are going to use José Manuel Barroso for the EU... Lech Walesa would work if we could darken his hair and get rid of his mustache.

    Walesa:


    Barroso:

    For Canada we are probably going to have to be switching between Harper and Michael Ignatieff. Maybe Ekmek's Reagan?


    Reagan:



    Ignatieff:

    On a side note, I think we have to replace Musharraf with Asif Ali Zardari.

    Too bad because there is already a Musharraf, and I can't even see a placeholder for Zardari.

    This one is alright:

    Ekmek's Robert E. Lee:



    as Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva:



    ...and maybe:

    C. Roland's Cardenas:


    as...

    Bashar al-Assad:



    Although, it would be ideal to have a custom Bashar al-Assad to fully represent the giraffe neck.


    EDIT:

    Would civ gold Ataturk be better for al-Assad?:

    Actually that one is way off anyway.

    We'll have to ask Ekmek and the other LH designers if they mind us using their work for this purpose.

    I'll look around for more this weekend. Anyone else please feel free to post your ideas for placeholders!

    Actually, for Singh, I think we should take Churchill's head, and put him in another less corpulent body. Then add a new turban and facial hair and voila!

    For Lula, I think we should take Mehmed, take away the turban, and maybe change the length of the beard. We should tan him up a bit, too (lots of sun in Brazil).

    Wasn't Hu Jintao the leader of China, though?

    That would be great for Singh.

    I think you're right about Hu Jintao. Hu's the President. Wen's the Prime Minister. (Abbott and Costello jokes don't work with spelling and punctuation)

    Unfortunately I have no experience modifying or creating leaderheads, so I don't know which features are easiest to change. If someone wants to point out which of the examples I've posted will work best/worst and why, that may help me make better selections.



    Cristina Fernández de Kirchner:


    One of these may work.

    Mary Queen of Scots:


    or

    Margrete I:


    Both from civ Gold, clearly I'm pulling most of these from there right now, in addition to Ekmek's great work.

    This is another hard one, that would be great for someone to pick up and do a total custom job.

    Best I've found so far

    Japan's (updated) leader Taro Aso:


    This one seems likely to change around also, so I wouldn't recommend anyone spend too much time on it.

    Nelson Mandela from civgold?:
