Now I gotta figure out which email address I saw mine in to check it!

Once I get these I gotta try to replicate the color for heads! I see a lot of wasted plastic in my future.

Behind a camera watching you!
Speaking of Skin tones, Does anybody know which paints match up.

Lady Sif needs her face to match her body.

Same with the amazon warrior who will likely become Hawkgirl although that plan may change.

I've always used testors flesh system. There's 2 skin tone bases,light base,and medium,and two shades to mix in,warmth,and shadow? I don't remember,but I have them at home..one is pinkish,one is almost greenish blue..I mix them on a plate with water dabbed into the middle. I've been able to match just about every joe skin tone with ease that way.

Example:



That's light base with warmth mixed in,then a wash of warmth on the cheeks.

I got my preorder today too.

Haven't opened the Spartan (I have the ultimate one already), but that Skeleton is all kinds of awesome. Delicate as fuck too.

I don't know if they're $20+ figures, but they're pretty fucking good. I was gonna replace my camera, but I may just have to buy more of these instead.





Any chance we can get a "I'm not gonna use these bits" swap going on these? Kinda wish BFS would let us do a pick-and-choose grab bag.

My King Leo didn't come with a stand or any other accessories, other than the spear, helmet, shield and sword(in tray).

Might just do that, thanks for the heads up.

Anyone else finding their skeletons with slightly warped lower legs? Makes standing them look... odd.

Looks like the left leg on my white skelly has a little bow to it. Man, the skeleton spacers actually kinda-sorta work on Kaiyodo's, but he really can't bear up the gear.

Mine is. He can't stand straight up and down. Has to have one leg kinda back.

This made me giggle.

Started working on a "hero", of sorts. Using MU Namor as base body, for a bit more beef. Just deciding on which armour and whatnot.

And wow... realized that I haven't touched a figure in a really long time. This should prove interesting.

Yeah mine had that so I gave them the boiling water dunk and sorted them out.

Also helped strength the knee joint too.

You can add hair to that bald head KT. I'm sure you got shit to fit that.


What holster is that from?

I don't care for the face in general, and I don't have much in the way of hair pieces, and none I want for this LBC.
Holsters are from Aurra Sing:

Grabbed her for her arms, but the vest and holster-cum-garter belt have proven handy.

I should probably grab the purple buck and use the legs on this one, but, golly-gee, are they pricey. :D

Cool shots guys, just a few quick posts to show what I been working on!

So First up - some cool shots I took up my local mountain, the area I used to shoot is not a logging road with a ton of cool rocks and rubble everywhere lol. (blood added and balancing stick removed in an app called Pixlmatr - really good app to be fair.

Alright so I've been doing some more customs in addition to all my spartans and generic warriors. One thing I wanted was Battlefield casulties without wasting HACKS figures so I managed to pick up a case of Build n Brawl wrestlers and had some spare lower half of HACKS that I could use to get rid of the garish trousers lol.

Also not a fan of the Athenian or Stone Fist Armour so used that as some of the "Dead" Armour.

Woulds have been filed down and green stuff sculpted in for a more realistic flesh wound look!

and finally, just a quick look at how you can make the Myrmidon / Disciple of Euryle armour functional and better looking :)

Basically Trim all the excess "cloth" and "leather" away until you have the one "leather" armour panels left, add cloth or armour underneath with glue and you are golden, I also glued the armour shut as the pegs are a bitch and never hold it on well.

I reckon I need that doll house rug that Hobby Lobby has after all. On the articulation front, I wish we could get a double knee AND a swivel.

Oooo, spooky GitD! In retrospect I should have bought a silver set, as I wouldn't have minded painting those bits.
