Ash Williams (Army of Darkness) Custom Action Figure
This was certainly a passion project for me. I (and countless numbers of one-liner fans) fell in love with Ash's character in Evil Dead 2. The attitude and weaponry were wicked awesome. So I decided to make an Ash for my display. I used the head, neck, left hand and boots from the NECA Medieval Ash. I literally cut the entire neck and collar bone out of the NECA Ash and implanted it into the Apollo's (Battlestar) upper torso. Talk about a dremel-fest. I sanded down a lot of areas including the shoulders and chest area. Then, I used Apoxy Sculpt to recreate the medieval shirt Ash dons in Army of Darkness. I sculpted the belt as well. The right mechanical hand was taken from a ML Mr. Sinister and then painted black and dry-brushed silver. The strap for the boom-stick holster came from Sinister's cape strands. Everything was painted with Model Master Acryl paints....Ahhh yes the glorious chainsaw hand. This was relatively easy to do. I used a Movie Maniacs Texas Chainsaw Massacre chainsaw. I cut the back handle off and sanded it flat. I then painted it Insignia Red and flat black where needed (also dry-brushed black). I used the original top handle for the side handle and a random piece of fodder for the side handle. I also added a pull chord ( made of string and plastic) but I'm not sure if you can see it. I used a small strand from Sinister's cape to make the circular metal ring that connects the saw to Ash. To get the mechanical arm and saw to fit I cut off the wrist pegs of a Narnia King Peter's hands and superglued them to the saw and mechanical hand. Now I have a fully articulated bubble gum chewing hard case who may be low on gas, but is ready to kick some....tail. Whew! Hope you guys like him.
