Thor was one of the hardest figures that I've had to do as I wanted him to look like the comic character but also look have a look of a Viking warrior so again after a day or two of searching the Internet and a little inspiration from a fellow customizer (glorbes) over on this custom figure site. I came up with this version of the God Of Thunder. I also wanted his helmet to have a little twist and instead of the wings I gave the helmet a lighting bolt design and kept the flowing fur at the back.

After the figure was put together I painted him using Games Workshop paints, Vallejo miniature paints and Reaper miniature paints, there was some major dry brushing to get the desired colours in the Armour and also in the clothing but I was pleased with the overall look and feel of him. And as always he was given 2 coates of Testors dull coate to seal in the paint and stop any scratch's.

RECIPE

Body - Marvel Legends Wonderman.

Head, Hands- Eomer LOTR The Two Towers.

Forearms and Leg Armour - Eomer LOTR The Two Towers.

Helmet - Eomer LOTR The Two Tower with lighting bolts added which are made from cardboard and brushed over with superglue.

Belt - Marvel Legends Namor with a shoulder pad added to the front from an old LOTR figure.

Tunic and Vest - Cut from leather and glued in place using superglue.

Round metal discs and chain - The discs I got from some old 1/35th scale model parts from the bits box and the chain I picked up from a $2 dollar store.

Hammer - The main part of the hammer was made from balsa wood glued together and sanded to shape the handle is some plasti-card rod cut to size and then wrapped using some old pleather as is the lower handle grip.

Cape - The cape was some left over material which was given a wash and then drybrushed.

I have check your figures and found them among the best. They all hava a high level of detail that rivals the ones big companies produce, I specially like your 12" figures the Indiana Jones line is perfect. I love the fat that you use real cloth to create your figures excellent job I am glad there is another customizer that does large figures I was feeling kind of lonely out here, just kidding I love this site the people are great and they really know their stuff.

Really great realistic take on Thor
And I'm going to be making one along similar lines - especially in regard to the helmet and gauntlets
But lovely work man - great use of parts

Very nice mythological Thor! One thing though, to be true to the mythos, his hair should be red. That said, your skills are beyond my own... you're very good.
