Inspired by Uncanny X-Men #281, I've always wanted to make this villainous group of cyborgs.
What can I say... The most fun part here?
Combining an upper torso to a TANK!!! This guy really defines who the Reavers are! A band of bad guys who've made the decision to not just be evil, but deadly!
I like to think that the Reavers are to the X-Men, what the Dreadnoks are to GI Joe. They're just wicked-cool, and don't mind getting their hands dirty. I wanted to show that here by giving him a lil' wear and tear to his lower half.
Sanded off features from the original base character to prep, sculpey for the hair and shades. Left over pegs from a "build it yourself" shelving kit for missiles.
Complete repaint and dry brush technique using Hobby Lobby water-based paints. Then clear coat Matte-finish spray paint to protect and give it a more "new figure look". And now the Reaver family gets just a little bit bigger!
I hope you enjoy! Thank you!
