I realized I had a disappointing lack of magic users in my fantasy figures collection, and I wanted to use a Golden Axe skeleton as a base. I still want to create some costume details so he doesn't just look like the Grim Reaper. Not that that's bad, but I was going for an undead sorcerer. I'll add some sort of red sash/belt, crown, amulet, stuff like that. The staff was custom, using a NECA skull from the Predator line, the horns from the ML Odin, and a lot of sculpting and paint.

Doing a bit more work on my skeleton warriors. I created a Lich sorcerer and I'm starting to convert the shields from the Golden Axe video gamey look to the more realistic metallic look on the left.

Been a while since I posted in here, but here we have a Morgan Le Fay I've been working on. I just need to work on the one arm a little so it goes in a tad deeper, but other than that, I'm just about done with her:

Thanks, man! I was surprised most of the parts existed for her, and yet she still has no figure in the actual Marvel Legends line.

I wanted a 1/12 scale shredder to go with my samurai turtles, so here's what I've got so far, going for the IDW look

Image

I used the new black panther on the vulcan body so I wouldn't need to worry about painting or dying the body. The arms and head from the lightning collection shredder popped right on. I originally swapped the lower legs, but the pegs were too short on the BP boot cut, so I peeled the shinguard overlay off the shredder's boots and put them on the BP legs.

I love what you have going there and I might want to try it as well. Which Black Panther is it the new comic based one?

Yeah it's the new comic-based Black Panther

with the gold painted silver and a red cape, it really works. I just need to find a belt for him and he'll be perfect

I just found Moon Knight yesterday (finally) and started repainting him. I still need to fix his face and then I'm looking into cloth cape options. The gold bits will still need some touching up and I need to fix the gunmetal on his chest and legs. I did a dark gray wash all over and then a white dry brush and it really makes the details pop. My arthritis is making all of this extremely difficult, but I'm just powering through at this point and getting the fine details between breaths. It's a lot more of a chore than it ever was, but still worth it. Image
