Custom #:27210  
Name:Ares, God of War
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Whiskeytango  
Date Added:February 2, 2011
Base Figure:WWE Elite Batista
Height:7.00 inches
This dude was a hell of a lot of work, much of which (like with Sentrys yellow paint), I was scared to do. Turns out a lot of it was easier than I thought it would be. Well... kind of. The helmet was just as difficult to sculpt as I thought it'd be, and even less fun. He's a WWE Batista from head to knee, and his lower legs are from wrarrl. Anything that doesn't look like a dude in spandex underwear wearing greaves is sculpted. I was worried about doing his left arm armor, but it was really simple to pull off. Besides the helmet, the thing that probably gave me the most trouble was the the skull and cross swords emblem.

I wanted him to have an arsenal, so I scratch made him a bunch of weapons from styrene and sculpt. I made him a spear, axe, single handed sword, and shield. The texture on the shield was made by covering it in sculpt and pressing the neck frill from an old JP dinosaur toy into it a bunch of times. Hope you guys like him.

Awesome sculpting! That skull emblem looks perfect! Great use of the base. I never really liked Hasbro's version.
