In a time where steam power, iron and steel keep the world moving, there still has to be someone to keep it safe. Kurt Wagner being of Catholic faith would rather love than fight. But we all do what we have to do to keep our loved ones safe. With his trusty steam-powered 3 shooter and his gear ridden "Killer Hand" sword, Nightcrawler will do whatever it takes to survive in this time forgotten by modern man.

Recipe-
Head - Hasbro 2-pack Cannonball ( Sculpted more hair and elf ears. Goggles made from fodder and wrist watch parts.)
Body / Jacket - X-2 Nightcrawler ( All painted with Model Master Acryl, boots sculpted with apoxy fix-it and the brass looking buttons came from craft tacks)

For the Pocket watch I cut a few links from a necklace and sculpted the watch on the end.
The 3-shooter started as a Battlestar Galactica gun. I then added a fuse piece to the top of the barrel( along with another piece for the sight) and added to wires coming out and entering drilled holes on the gun's sides. The bottom of the gun handle also has a wrist watch winder attached.

The "Killer Hand" sword is appropriately named due to it's composition of watch/clock parts. It started as a Prince Caspian sword. I cut a bit of the Guard/Quillian off and attached multiple gears,hoses and whatever I could find that looked steampunkish. The Guard has an actual clock minute hand attached to it by a gear (that actually rotates) and a cross on top of the hand to add a little Catholic !%@-Kick to the weapon. I assembled and painted the entire sword.

The Sword sheath came from a Prince Caspian as well. It is attached by the belt I cut from a Heroes' Hiro shoulder bag.

I hope you guys like him. Comments are always welcome.
