I scoured online stores for the X-Force variant of Warpath when he came out in the past and he was being sold for a very hefty price. Against my better judgement, i gave in and bought one. (sucker)
The Warpath from Hasbro was a bit small to my liking and I always liked the way he was portrayed as the "tank" in X-Force.
So I grabbed my only MU Colossus at the time and started to work on him. I took the original MU Warpath head repainted it because the mask and facial gesture was too soft for me. My initial attempt at the mask gave me a bit of a "Wonder Warpath" kinda feel, and we don't want that. Repaint!
Took apart the Colossus body filled up and sanded off, repeatedly, to get the desired shape. I took Colossus' bracers and attempted my FIRST, yes FIRST, sculpt ever. When I saw that the bracers came out pretty decent, I added pads to the hands. :) Whew.
AS for the paints, I used Flat and Gloss black on certain parts. I eased off on the silver pants because they gave me New Year-sy costume feel. (You know those body suits girls wear when they go to Times Square when the ball is about to drop?. nevermind)
Anyways, without further delay, here he is, my first crack at sculpting, with the rest of my X-Force customs. I have plans to do the rest of the team but will have to see which character interests me next.
Comments, as always, are a very welcome sight.
Enjoy and Glory to God! and have a meaningful Holiday Season and a blessed New Year.
