There are some rumors about a "Gamma Squad", there are some rumors about the Gamma Squad leader. Some say his name was "Martin Sane" but all of his fellows named him "Smart Insane" because after get caught alone in the middle of a battle after the "E-Day" with tons of Locusts and a Berzerker against him, he waited silently over the top of a pile of wastes and just in the right moment jumped on the Berzerker whom desperately tried to take Martin off of her back while she ran from side to side crushing and smashing her horde pals; tons of Drones, some Grenadier Flame Throwers and even some Boomers were killed by the blind lady. It's not clear how many hours stayed Martin over the Berzerker's back but it's said that 8 hours after, the tired Berzerker stopped by a moment, just enough to Martin to jump off her back to a safe place... after that, none is sure of what happened, but one thing is sure, Martin made his decision and took the risk, something unthinkable but very effective. Some say the Berzerker killed 40 Drones, 10 Boomers, 15 Grenadier Flame Throwers and nearly 25 Thickers.

Hello fellows, long time no see :), I've been so busy at job lately but hope to have some free time to get back in action :)

Gears of War is one of my favorite video game franchises of all time, I love the story, the characters, the gameplay and obviously the actions figures, In fact there are some of them (18) over my shelf. That's why I thought "Hey, many COG privates are not enough, lets make one more".

The recipe is as follows:

Body: juke's pacific WWE action figure (don't know the name)
Head: Mattel WWE Vladimir Koslov with beard and moustache sculpted with epoxic clay.
Upper Armor: Fully sculpted with epoxic clay.
Shin guards: Mega Blocks HALO Metalons.
Boots: Sculpted with epoxic clay.
Belt: Sculpted with epoxic clay.

I used acrilyc paints and a matte sealer and there you have it :)

Thank you so much for watching, and thank you so much for your feedbakc :)

excellent work! I was really surprised there was no motuc in the recipe, at first glance I thought u used one of their bucks, but on closer inspection he is better proportioned than a motuc (imo), really nice!

HisDivineShadow, thank you very much . About the recipe I can tell you that the base that I used is a very cheap one, I did get it in a flea market for only $2. MOTUC are great figures, but unfortunately they are so expensive here in my hometown ($40 - $60 dlls each), so I'm happy you like it the base I used

WOW, xGARRIKx! At first I thought this was a NECA GOW figure that you repainted! But then I saw that you sculpted the upper body! Dude! You're a beast! It looks awesome! All around excellent work!!!

NeCrollector, thank you very very much brother. Always is a BIG HONOR to have a comment from you, I'm very glad you like this piece. My last post in the realm was a repainting work which I don't feel happy with, so as I'm returning to the realm with this new piece and receive your word saying you liked it , is something that makes me feel I outdid the last post. THANK YOU very much!!
NeCrollector - Sunday, September 23, 2012
It's my pleasure, brother. I'm a big fan of your work.

not familiar with GOW charcaters, but this figure looks awesome. Great sculpting and stunning paints. Muy chingón, bro..

Ringo, brother, I'm so glad you like it. In fact this character is an own creation, I mean he doesn't appear in any videogame or any novel. I think this is what's known as "fan fiction". Even the story of Gamma Squad and the reason why Martin is known as "Smart Insane" was created by myself , so if you look for information on this character you'll find anything . Lo que es verdaderamente chingón, es recibir un comentario de tu parte. GRACIAS!!

Eso tiene mas merito, mi hermano. La imaginacion al poder. Y la tuya parece que desborda...

That gives it extra merits, bro. Power to imagination. And yours seem to bbe overflowing...
