With a grand total of ONE point of articulation, I present to you my Classic era Storm. She derived from a NECA Pirates of the Carribean "Tia Dalma" figure. With a complete repaint and an added (still modified) McFarlane base, she comes to life! I used all Citadel/Testor acrylic paints for this project. Storm's mohawk was taken from a DCU Ares. Her original base figure only had a right ear, so the left ear is from a wrestling figure. When I removed the original hair, I also had to repaint her entire skin tone because of blemishes from facotry glue.
As for paints on the dress, I used black, blue, and yellow mostly - which are Storm's primary X-Men uniform colors. Gave the black a slight purple wash and the blue a darker blue wash - might not show well in my pictures sorry. Oh and for her "petticoat" underneath her main dress I gave her a tannish off-white color with a blue and red wash. Let's not forget her white X on her stomach to symbolize who she crews up with at the end of the day. This I suppose would be a relaxing outfit for Ororo, but in the right time period of course.
The base. I used a McFarlane "Danger Girl" base that I got in a trade from one of you Soupers, sorry I forget who right now but I think it worked out! I sculpted over the front of the base to make it look like rock. Then I painted it grey with a wash and hand-painted that Storm logo - which comes from the Storm comic book I show in the reference picture. I sculpted snowballs that are coming from her hand to the base, along with foot placing for her to stand in. I was going to do a small tornado effect but she already has a base with that from a Legends figure. Well hope you guys like her.
