Took an X3 Juggernaut, removed the arms and head, then drilled out the sockets and dremeled and packed the housings with Apoxie. Added a Revoltech neck joint. ML BaF Ares head, arms, helmet and weapons. Armor is grafted from parts of an SMC series 1 Rhino. Sculpted the armor using this as the breastplate. Sculpted the leg armor, again with Apoxie. The axe is from Viking Spawn. Painted with lots of Citadel and Model Masters Acryls and then sealed with Mod Podge. Thanks for looking and God Bless!

*edit* I cannot believe I forgot to mention 1andonly, ferrytalecustoms and EddieGrayce, all of whom have done far better customs on this than I could. Amazing stuff!

Thanks for dropping by, Pock. Took me ages to paint this one! Lots of washing.

Very badass, bro! I especially love that skull on his chest piece

Always appreciate your comments, it took a few tries to get it right--forgot to mention in recipe that I outlined and accented the skull with a Gundam marker once I was happy with the paints, which I think makes it pop more. I'm not really a fan of the "small skull" design.

I appreciate the comment; I tried my best to bring some variation to the base recipe.

There's s lot of mixed parts that go really well together here. I especially like how you did the breastplate and skull.

Thanks, I must say it was very difficult to cut, crack and dremel that SMC Rhino!

Thanks much man, very happy with the result. It has articulation the original BaF never will. I got the idea to use that axe from 1andonly's great piece.
