Who is the greatest example of a Barbarian than a god of the best Barbarians of them all? Odin stands above all of the Norse gods as the High Father of Valhalla!

Based partly on different pictures in Marvel Comics and on historicall illustrations, this is my vision of Odin. This is one of, nay IS, the best figure I've made to date. There has been work done on him from head to toe including sanding off all of the weird bumps all over his skin (that was gross).
Starting from the top:
-Helmet is a ML Loki's helmet horns with sculpted helmet and bent horns with sculpted accents
-Eye patch is sculpted on
-Beard is hair from the back of ML Sasquatch's head and sculpted together seamlessly
-Chainmaille and plate armor all hand sculpted
-Glove cuffs sculpted
-Sword is made from plastic called Sentra, with mini dowel pommel and sculpted accents
-Spear is dollar store magnetic guy spear tip with mini dowel shaft and sculpted accents
-Loin Cloth and Cape are real fur dyed light brown with magnets in the corners that connect to magnets above the chest plate
-Scabbard is hand sculpted (I will do a tutorial because it turned out AWESOME!) with belt made from foamie sheet strips (one wide one for the belt, another for the scabbard frog) and sculpted belt buckle. It isn't connected to the figure and the scabbard is seperate from the belt hanging from it with it's own part.

Everything was painted with darker colors first and then lighter colors were dry brushed on. The loin cloth was glued in place and the scabbard hung from the belt and attached.
