Hi All

This is an older custom figure I did I pulled him out from the wardrobe and pulled him apart and redid him. The figure is Klaang from Enterprise Broken Bow this is what he looked liked before a started http://www.startrekdb.se/leksaker/art_asylum/broken_bow/broken_bow.php?visa=broken_bow-klaang.jpg.

The only thing that I did'nt sand or cut away where the legs and head, once everything was removed I got to work on him.
1-The tunic is from an old t-shirt which I cut it to size and sewed and glued to the main bodyand added elastic strips and cord to it.
I then added the back armour using plasti-card cut out to the desired shape and thinkness.
2-The shoulder armour is a combination of plasti-card and rubber and elastic strips.
3-The arms where covered in and old hankychief and then covered with static grass to give it that furry look.
4- The belt is some old hard rubber I had lying around and teh holster is made from scrap leather.
5-The hands where covered with greenstuff and molded and then plasti-card was used for the spikes

I re-painted the body using Vallejo, Reaper miniature, GW and artist paints. And for the head and hands I used artist paints and GW paints.

sorry pics lost

Great work Hemble!  The paint apps are incredible, I really like the beat-up Cap. America.
Are you able to keep the paint from chipping off of the joints? When I made my Marvel Legends Boba Fett I had a little trouble keeping the paint on the shoulder and knee joints  :-\
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Hi G

Thanks mate glad you like em with the paint you have 2 options
1- sand down the joint sections a little so that paint doesn't rub
2- once you've painted the joints use a little super glue on the area's you don't want rubbing to occur.

Oh yeah, I always mean to try that super-glue trick but never get around to it.  Thanks!

Hemble your painting is so great that I don't even know where to start with these.  The detail is just amazing.  I think you are the best painter around.
You bring a level of "life" to your work that I could only dream of achieving!

i really like the Capt. America the best -- the level of paint detail is astounding on it. i like the torn mask and the weathering and tears on the suit look so realistic, like he fought one helluva battle in the real world and took a few licks here and there.

i am looking forward to seeing more of your work  :)

Hi All

Well I'm back  ;D it's been to bloody long for my taste I've finally completed all the commission works I had to do and I just got a patch of SW figures so it won't be long before you'll see my next SW custom and repaint.

Also I've hasd a quick look at people's customs and I'll reply to them all in the next couple of days you guys/gals sure have been busy. So to start of a new year I decided to do the figure below he took me 10.5 hrs over the weekend LMK what you think.

When Enterprise aired the In a Mirror Darkly episode I knew I had to make a Mirror universe Archer I've always liked these kind of episodes and this was no exception Archer has had scuplting done and he was painted using  Reaper and GW paints.
 
Body - The body from head to toe is the Artasylum Archer from Broken Bow.
Head - The head has been cut and sanded down and greenstuff was added to give him the spikey look from the episode.
Belt, holster and shoulder strap - These have been made from left over leather and small wire was attached to the ends of the straps to the belts.
Weapons - The laser pistol is from the Archer figure set and the knife and sheath are from Artasylums Mirror universe Kirk.
Shoulder epelets, patches and decorations - the epelets are from leather and plasticard card cut to size and painted and the
decorations are also made from plasticard and painted and the patches are from the internet resized, printed and cut out and glued.

sorry pics lost

Ron

That's so real and lifelike... wow.  I really am impressed once again.  It's hard to give you any advice, because you already paint these a million times better than I could.

Thanks for showing them as always, and being so helpful in your process.  Sometimes at a certain other site there are some expert painters who don't always want to share their techniques. 

Now, we need to see a new Star Wars figure.   ;)

Man, I don't know how I missed this!  The paint job is crazy, nice job!
It's eerie how much he looks like a real person, the paint apps on the face are incredible!

I can't wait to see your SW customs  :)
