A lot of us are used to the classic Bishop blue & yellow duds. However, when I read the X-Force Messiah War Story Arc, Lucas Bishop was sporting a more simpler costume, black and white, and a mechanical arm.
The arm apparently served as a power source for his kinetic blasts (guess he got tired of getting shot at first before he could blast back :P). The arm also had a device that could help jam telepaths from accessing Bishop's thoughts, and get this... small mechanical tentacles (sheesh). Which he tried to use on Stryfe, which of course failed miserably.
I took Colossus' right arm and sculpted away. Took a bit of creative liberty here to make it look "techno-organic".
I used Warpath's torso and added a neck joint so he could look up and down.
Cable's belt gave me the pouches and I scuplted a new buckle for the X logo.
I did a combo of matte and gloss paints, suffered much on the white trying to get it even, painted the M symbol on Ripcord's face, and viola, we have a Lucas Bishop.
The only nod to his original costume is probably the glove on his left hand. :D
God bless and have a great weekend.
