Well, this is the 3rd Road Pig custom I've made, and like it's predecessor, I believe it's better than the previous one. Progress!

I'm a big Dreadnok fan, and Road Pig might just be my favorite out of the whole lot, mainly b/c I really dig his design. Anyhow, this time around I took some advice from Mandingo Rex and G.I. Eddie and weathered the black on the figure, and it paid off. I also did a lot of dry-brushing and some shading in order to bring a little more realism to the paint apps.

In the recipe, you'll notice that I didn't use the Road Pig upper legs, but rather, just the bolt pads. The reason for this is that the upper legs were too big for the torso. However, I love the bolt pad and wanted to use it. Then I tried out the Retaliation RB upper legs and they were well proportioned and even had straps that could be used for holding the bolt pads on. So, I departed from the original design a bit in that there are 2 sets of bolts (1 on each thigh) and they are held in place by a pad and multiple straps instead of just 1 strap.

Recipe:

Head - BBTS 7-pack Road Pig cast from Tofu Jesse
Torso - Angel Forge with sculpted cod piece and modded neck
Arms - X-Men Origins: Wolverine Sabretooth
Hands - ROC Lt. Stone
Upper Legs - Retaliation Roadblock
Bolt Pads - dremeled from the upper legs of the Road Pig legs at the Angel Forge
Lower Legs - Road Pig legs at the Angel Forge
Feet - Resolute Roadblock with some sculpting
Wrist-Mounted Crossbow - Angel Forge
Arm Pad Thingie...? - Slayer Design (don't think it's up at Angel Forge yet)
Shoulder Pads - Slayer Design (don't think it's up at Angel Forge yet)
Cinder Block Hammer - Angel Forge
