I have been wanting to do Shaman from Alpha Flight for quite some time, but couldn't find the right base figure...till yesterday. I saw a WWE HHH figure & noticed the hair was about perfect, & he has kind of a Native American type of nose. Everyone usually identifies with the traditional Green & Tan out fit... but I have always prefered the Black outfit( seems more true to a traditional spirit Shaman to me).
I trimmed sections from the back of his hair to cover HHH's ears. Made pleather Tunic, Boot fringe cuffs & Headband. Fashioned his Medicine Pouch out of a larger pouch I had & used trimmings from shaving off the boot straps from the figure.
Kept paint pretty close to the clip art I could find. Changed the front bottom of Tunic from the 5 vertical white strips to a less busy series of circles. As I couldn't find any pics of the Back of his Tunic, I designed my own(Following his connection to the Eagle totem). I also kept with the Traditional leather fringe boots instead of the White Fur boots usually shown with this outfit...& chose a leather headband with disc over the White one used.

Any Thoughts?
