Something a little different from me today, here we have The Icon Sting as he appeared in the attitude era of World Championship Wrestling. Also known as the crow Sting this guy was tons of fun to work on and he really opened my eyes to just how much an impact Steve Borden has had on professional wrestling despite never stepping into a WWE ring. I think this little snipit from Wikipedia sums him up perfectly:

He has held 21 total championships between WCW and TNA, and is the only man to hold the NWA, WCW, and TNA World Titles in his career. Sting has headlined many major pay-per-views since the late 1980s.

Anyhoo, enough of me gushing about a man in spandex, here's the recipe I used for Sting.

Head = LOTR Aragorn gave him a shave and resculpted his jaw.

Ears = Grafted on from a Mat Hardy figure.

Hair = Elite Undertaker, sculpt to blend.

Upper body = Sculpted T-shirt over the Christian bare chest.

Hands = Elite Undertaker

Legs = Christian with sculpted details on thighs and knees.

Crotch = Christian with sculpted detail.

Feet = Christian with sculpted detail.

Painted and sealed with games workshop products and loctite brush on superglue.

The Scorpion on his chest was a real pain to paint and took over 2 hours alone.I think it was worth it though. The third picture shows what would undoubtedly happen if he were to ever join the WWE. Thanks for having a glance and hope you enjoy. Till next time...........

Yeah I have to agree with bdcd here! the detail painting is prime here Darth! from the tiny lettering on the gloves to that wicked scorpion painted on the chest, this is awesome!
"Hey what's that coming down from the ceiling rafters? It's sting with a baseball bat!"
BDCdiesel - Friday, July 26, 2013
Please...please, call me BDC. I didn't notice the "mechanics" gloves, ha ha, nice touch.

Random though B.D.C. Diesel .... Big Daddy Cool Diesel ARE YOU KEVIN NASH!
Darththomas - Saturday, August 3, 2013
Cheers BDC, it's also my favorite look for him although hisn classic blonde hair and painted face comes a close second.
Pulpy, glad you noticed the lettering on the gloves, took me hours just to find out what it actually said
Banner/HULK Inc. - Friday, July 26, 2013
You actually painted the Scorpion?! Unbelievable! It's perfect! That alone makes this the best custom Sting ever.
Darththomas - Saturday, August 3, 2013
I did, and it was a real pain in the eyes worth the effort in the end though I reckon.
pock63 - Friday, July 26, 2013
Wow!!! Amazing paint work!!!! and a great custom all around!
Darththomas - Saturday, August 3, 2013
