Lynx-O Custom Action Figure
This is my fifth attempt at customising and my fifth Thundercat. I think my skills have improved significantly since my first four of lion-o, panthro, tigra and cheetarah. For this one I started off with a WWE deluxe aggression figure of Tazz as he already had a unitard and his leg joints were black so no need to paint them. I filed down his hair by hand to make a bald head and filed the bottom of his shorts to make his legs more like trousers. I then sculpted his head band and beard from Aves fixit and waited for it to harden before sculpting the ears. Then I sculpted the feet and bandages round his ankles before finally sculpting his belt on and adding four slices of a lightsaber as the middle bit. For paints I used games workshop paints, blood red for the unitard washed with flesh wash and dry brushed over with blood red again. Chaos black for the rest of the suit and a small amount of dry brushing with my own grey mix to pick out highlights. His hands and bandages were painted with blazing orange, flesh washed and dry brushed blood red and blazing orange. Finally the skin is elf flesh, flesh washed and dry brushed again with elf flesh. The symbol is made from a printed picture stuck on and painted over. I’m still having the problem of paint rub on the shoulder joints and don’t know how to remedy it I’ve tried superglue but no dice so any advice on this would be great. Thanks for looking.
