Thanks Guys, really appreciate all the comments.
Keep them coming Pulpy, I am a fan of yours too.
Supersize, I did sculpt the skull on the chest. I was wanted to do something a little more ornate for the armor but, Ares is not about that so keeping it simple seemed to fit the character.
Crisco, I did the boil and pop method for the legs. The Savage Dragon pegs were a little too small for the Wraal leg holes so I had to use some epoxy to make the fit nice and snug. They still retain the articulation.
Again really appreciate the feedback. I will be returning the favor this week as I find time to sit down and look at all the great stuff I have missed.
BTW, I have some WIP pics at on my myspace page..

DUDE!!!!! YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW HONORED I AM!!!!
Thank you so much! I am such a big fan of your work, and to think something I did made you think about your own work, really inspires and motivates me to work harder and try to push the envelope on my stuff!!!
But to comment on the work itself, the paints are tight, and the sculpt/assembly of parts is great. I have to say the leather bands on the left arm are quite good, and I like the use of the wrarrl for the legs, the armored feet look badass!

Your use of foamie sheets never cease to amaze me.It always looks like real leather. Did you sculpt the skull on the chest? Another great looking custom.

Very nice work! How did you attach the warrl legs? heat and pop or did you have to cut the waist?

Heh, I know the feeling of having a project in a ziplock bag for a while - I have a box full of them. It feels great whenever I complete one of those.
Excellent work - the use of the SOTA arms really makes the figure.
