Stars & stripes Marvel style!

First up! Supergirl was the latest DC figurine to get the Marvel treatment! And I decided to turn her into an old school marvel heroine and that's Miss America!

On the Commission front I have finished a request for Death's Head and he can be seen below. What an awesome figurine he was to make and a great challenge to aswell. As for my next wave of commissions keep an eye open as I have been asked to attempt something different!!! But cool!!! Still on the theme of heroes but not from marvel or DC... Also I still have that mystery new figurine I'm working on...

Death's head

I have also included a freebie I recieved the other day from Eaglemoss to help with my customs. Apparently there an old style base, used in the old days on the CMFC... Cheers EM!

It's a 'Special' day!

Bane has been beaten into shape with a new Marvel face! I wanted to for a bit more well known guy with him as for one he is the perfect shape/size and second I always wanted to own... Cyber in my collection! So Bane is now known as Cyber (an enemy of Wolverine). Not my best but I like him :D

Cyber Cyber again

On the commission front I have finally finished my 2nd Tenebrous. Again as with any customs I re-do they turn out alot better (because the more I do the better techniques I learn) so you have a top custom there Graham mate. Now I'm going to move onto my next *new* commission who will hopefully look amazing!

Tenebrous V.2 Tenebrous

I also recieved a really awesome email from Richard Jackson over at EM (Eaglemoss) and here is some of what he said to me. It's reguarding my Warlock custom.

"Warlock looks really good, I'm very impressed with the paint standard you achieve on your figures as many of the homebrew figures tend to lack a little something when it comes to the painting, yours however look fantastic."

"It certainly makes me consider putting Warlock in the collection."

He said some more stuff about a question I asked earlier. But then he said this....

"Anywho, consider them a 'no-prize' prize for all the great customs you've made."

What could the freebie be? You'll have to wait but it's very kind of him indeed and I am most greatful.

On a final note I'm in the process of starting a new *secret* figurine! But a special one! I'm going for a toughie, but as I always say if I can make Onslaught then I can make anyone! And check the photo below of Onslaught with his Sentinel haha! I got another one on the way so with two he'll look awesome!!!

The Scarecrow isn't so scary!

I was going to save this custom for a possible future upcoming custom competition over on the superheroesforums but I decided to just post him now as well I think he rocks and I really can't wait to show everyone! Ok So with Scarecrow being an odd shaped dude I had to go for an odd shaped marvel dude. So I went with Warlock! A bizarre ally to the X-Men. I did afair bit of sculpting on him and filing deep into his chest! Poor Scarecrow.

Warlock Warlock again

As for my customs I am making three as commissions. They are: Tenebrous, Batman Beyond & another guy I have never considered making - till now (looking forward to this one). I'm also making a ROM for my own collection. Once these are finished they will be posted on here.... This week also Look out for Onslaught and his Sentinels photo and another DC character to face the chop.... Bane! But who's he gonna be?

Here's the next custom wave in the early stages
