Custom #:37242
Name:The Old Soldier
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Astro City
Date Added:February 29, 2012
Base Figure:ML Bishop
Height:7.00 inches
This character comes from the Astro City universe. I was reading the GN Life in the Big City, and this obscure character stood out for me. So I made him. My 3rd pic has a reference of the character I was aiming for.
Recipe is as follows:
Head DCD KC Superman
Body ML Bishop
Sculpted the head bandages and added a towel from a McFar. football player.
Sculpted armour on the shoulders. Technique used, added green putty and the rolled a wadded ball of tinfoil to try to get the chainmail look.
The boots I added shoulder pads from a ML Mr. Sinister to get the rounded tops.
Belt is a ML Omega Red. The canteen is from MS Cap/Bucky and grenade from DC Bats reborn. They have magnets I attached so they can come off and on.
Sword is Wralls from Conan 2pack.
Gun/pistol/flag/sash came from fodder bin.
Hope you like.
