Hi, I know that Im new at this and that group photos is not recommended, but I just could not let myself separate these characters.

A brief history: Battle Chasers was created in the late 90's by comic book superstar Joe Mad. Even with its delays the book was doing pretty good. However due to tragic reasons the book was cancelled with no closure whatsoever. Fast forward 10 years or so since the last book hit the shelves, a new trade paper back was released still with no definitive ending, but with a hefty price and it is still sold out at every comic book store. This just goes to show how these characters had made such a huge impact on the comic book industry.

Now being one of those people, I just wanted to honor these characters by trying to make it as close to how Joe Mad visualized them. This is the best that I can do and I can only hope that the big names in the customizing world would also take a crack at this and somewhat keep these characters alive.

Recipe:

Garrison: Body= Thor (2 pack w/ extremis Iron man); Head= Punisher(I re-sculpted the entire head though, meaning new nose, chin and new jawline and hair)

Red Monika: Head & Body= Invisible Woman (with sculpt work on her chest)

Gully: Head & Body= Star Wars young Bobba Fett with Thanos gauntlets

Knolan: Head & Body= Star Wars rebel commando( staff is from adam warlock and belt is from modern thor)

Calibretto: Head & Hands= Thing (Fantastic Four 3pack) Body= Bumble Bee (Mech Tech) everything else is sculpted with Tamiya smooth putty(chest,back,pants.shoulders & forearms)

If anyone has any questions please dont hesitate to ask and Ill try to answer it as best I can..Now I humbly present Joe Mad's "Battle Chasers"...Thank you for viewing.

I have to say the this is my favorite entry in the contest the likenesses are bang on and the amount of work you put into them is insane, also to make all 5 main characters within the contest deadline is ambitious to say the least. My only critique would be that the sculpting could have used just a little more refinement, smoothing out surfaces and removing fingerprints ect. Having said that I can't wait to see more of your stuff, keep up the good work and consider me your newest fan.
