Date Added:July 13, 2010
Base Figure:DCUC Ares
Height:6.50 inches
Life has kept me busy this last month but, I am trying to finish up some projects.. here is Thanatos God of Death from Marvel Comics.
After seeing lanshark's Thanatos and I being inspired by Cerebus's paint applications on his two versions of Ares, I got the itch to make one myself.
DCUC ARES head to toe with a face transplant. The skull came from a key ring Cerebus sent me awhile ago. removed the shoulder armor added wings from a DCUC Hawkman.
Sword short and more like a gladiator's sword, and it is a combo of LCBH Wraal's hilt and LCBH Conan's blade. The Scabbard is a modified LCBH Conan scabbard. I shortened it to fit the shorter gladiator sword.
minor sculpt work was needed.
Thanks for looking, comments and feedback are welcome.

I just have to say that I always look forward to seeing your work, and you are one of the main reasons why I started doing this. You definitely should have your own toy company, keep up the great work, and can't wait to c the next one.

thanks guys, I appreciate all the feedback. it is nice to be back.
Crisco, once I removed the cape Ares came with, I took the dremmel and made the grove the cape had been attached in, deeper. The DCUC Hawkman wings are on a plastic hinge and I set it in and applied epoxy to cement it in. It kept all the articulation..Those are some great wings if you can get your hands on them.
Snobit, those are the hands that came on the Ares figure. Its a great figure with lots of great detail that gets missed due to the factory paint job.
Cerebus, it is a great figure for painting. I was torn since I love the leather look you gave yours but the pictures I had seen has Thanatos with a darker look. so I went with mostly black and gunmetal gray.

The skull and paint job are a vast improvement over the original figure's design. Great custom man!
