Ahh the Punisher-Frank Castle-one of my all time favourite characters-ever!! This custom has been a long time coming!
I wanted to make a Punisher ages ago but never quite found the right figure-but I have recently bought some cheap Street Fighter figures and I had to buy Guile. I have seen him used before as the Punisher and other characters and I always liked him as a base figure.
Recipe: basically Guile-with hair cut off and remodelled in Frank's style with Milliput and a Punisher paint job.
The Coat and belt are from the Marvel Select Punisher Figure
The Guns are from Spawn and some cheap knock off figures.
I wanted to get the look of Frank's more recent incarnation - specifically from the pages of Garth Ennis's story arcs-I liked the idea of him being this big tough older man-a Vietnam vet- which of course he is supposed to be.
This Punisher was based on the story arcs "The Slavers" and "Up is Down and Black is White"-I like how the artist has made Frank's face scarred and beaten-so I wanted to replicate this on my figure hence painting scars the sticking plasters on the heads.
I couldn't decide which head I wanted so I decided to do them both-this way I can display Frank as mean and moody or just plain angry.
Hope you like him-comments,etc appreciated.
