Hello MK fans. Today I present you with the hook-sword wielding, ex-Black Dragon member, Kabal. This is a birthday present for my best friend. We both agreed that Kabal's best look was from his MK3-Trilogy days, so I did my best to recreate the nostalgia. I will move on to the lengthy recipe now... Happy birthday, Scott!

Recipe:
Head- FO Jigsaw (Sculpted mask and top half of the hair) Bottom half of hair was from a Buffy figure.
Torso- Punisher (Sculpted shirt and neck brace)
Shoulders- ML Longshot
Arms- Sota Fei Long
Hands- Madman
Legs- Punisher (Sculpted creases for knee pad indents and tucked in pant legs)
Shoes- Deluxe wrestling figure (Dremeled off laces and sculpted over)
Belt- 2 ML Sinister straps wrapped around the waist. Added fodder pieces for respirator packs.
The respirator canister on the belt was made from a DCUC Orion flying contraption jet.
The tubes on his mask and respirator are craft tubing.
Bottom of his shirt came from a DCUC Dr. Midnight
Hook swords- This was an amazing find for me. I made them out of gift cards! Sanded down and then added sculpt for the wrist guards. The handles have thin rubber tubing wrapped around them and superglued in place.
The figure is a complete repaint using citadel and model master acryl. He retains all articulation and has absolutely no paint rub!

I really hope you guys like Kabal as much as I did making him. Have a great day... MORTAL KOMBAT!

Nice work!

I almost went the extra mile and made an alternate head, but I decided he had enough to stand on his own. Maybe when they release what the new kabal's look is, I may do the scream head.

Pretty cool Kabal custom. It would have been neat if you gave him an alternate, unmasked screaming head as an accessory.

Fantastic looking Kabal!

Thank you! Actually, I used standard scissors to cut out a basic shape, then I dremmeled them down like crazy. The exacto knife came in to play when I was shaving the excess shavings off.

really cool. You don't see a whole lot of MK customs, and when you do its usually one of the Ninjas (which I myself am twice guilty of). What did you use to cut the gift cards? It seems like your average hobby exacto wouldn't really be up to the task.

Very appreciated guys. You should have seen my friend's face when I gave it to him... priceless. Be on the look out for my Liu Kang who is currently in the making.
