I was absolutely gutted and completely heartbroken when Rik Mayall died last week. I'd had a half finished doll sitting around my studio for two years, he started out as a wrestler, was going to be a swashbuckler, but after Rik's death I knew immediately he was going to be Squadron Commander Lord Flashheart from Blackadder.

"Mind if I use your phone? If word gets out I'm missing, five hundred girls will kill themselves. And I wouldn't want them on my conscience, not when they ought to be on my *face*! Hello? Cancel the state funeral, tell the king to stop blubbing, Flash is not dead! I simply ran out of juice! And before five hundred girls all go 'oh, what's the point in living any more?' I'm talking about petrol! Woof! Send someone along to pick me up. General Melchett's driver will do, she hangs round with a big knob so she'll be used to a fellow like me. Woof!"

Flashheart wasn't my favourite Mayall character, but he'll be appropriate for snuggling and consoling my soppy tears while I watch the Young Ones or Bottom or Drop Dead Fred  Cry

I think you absolutely nailed him.  A very appropriate tribute to the man.

Never saw Blackadder, but I loved Drop Dead Fred. Now I have another movie to check out.

Beautiful work, Knickertwist!

I was gutted about Rik too, I think your Lord Flashheart is wonderful.
