Ok, this is one of my most recent customs, and the one I'm most proud of. I really wanted the BAF Ares, but seemed to have amassed most of the series loose with no parts, so rather than searching for it whole I decided to take up the unenviable task of sculpting him. I decided to use the original BAF as a guide since it captured his current Dark Avenger outfit so perfectly.

Started with the ML Hercules, and preceded to slice off the skirt, hair, beard & chin and leg straps (almost lost a finger doing this!). After this I ended up sculpting him almost head to toe. First I reconstructed his chin and mouth, and sculpted the arm details, then legs and boots, and finally his chest plate and helmet (Ughh, that wasn't fun).
Then I painted the leather bits brown and the metal bits silver, used a dark brown wash on the leather and drybrushed with a dull yellow. Then used a heavy black wash over the metal, followed by a thin silver wash.
Then came the skin and details, and gave him the axe from Blob series Thor (will eventually sculpt the sword from a big Action Man machete I have lying around.)

Very happy with this one, although thanks to the photos I've noticed a few details I need to tidy up, but I already have about 6 other customs on the go so who knows when I'll get round to it. I'll try and upload the rest of my Dark Avengers customs soon.
