Hi All

After doing the Cyborg Superman and The Phantom figures I started going thru the internet looking at other superheroes to do and saw Aquaman. I remember watching the old Aquaman cartoons when I was a kid but also liked him with the beard so I combined the old style outfit to the bearded character and what you see is the end result.

RECIPE

Body & head - Is made from a WWE Build N' Brawlers figure, I super glued the joints and once dry I puttied the joints and then used watered some PVA glue and then got tissue paper and started to adhere to the body to make the outfit. The gloves are from a Star Wars figure and teh belt is made from left over leather and the A symbol was cut from some left over plasti card.

Once the tissue paper had dried I used GW greenstuff to make the beard and then I started to paint over the dried tissue paper, I used Vallejo and GW paints to paint and weather him.

Base - The base is an old Sideshow 12" Star Wars base I had in the cupboard. I used clay to build up the ground work and before it dried I used real coral and shells I found at the beach and pushed them into the ground work along with some plastic plants I got from the local pet shop.

The Manta Ray was from a tube of sea creatures I picked up at the local toy shop, once everything was on the base I glued fine river sand over the top of the clay and let dry. Once dry I gave the sand a wash of brown and then dry brushed till I got the effect I liked.

I like ol' fish head! Aquaman gets dissed too much in my opinion and I liked how they made him Namor strong in the JL cartoons and didn't take any crap off the drylanders! Great job Hemble. Your DIOS are the high marks of the community!
