This one took a bit longer than the previous one, Flashfire. It involved quite a bit of cutting away part of the base figurine, plus tricky sculpting of the Milliput to get the hair and beard looking right. Like most characters it depends on the artist drawing them to how they look. I'm not talking about costume changes, but the size of a character can change, depending on the artists impression.
With Fang I wanted him to look feral, but not too bulky, slim, but with clear muscle definition. I chose Morbius, which is one of the smaller figurines released, but ideal for this custom, especially with the fangs, stance, and clawed hands. The whole figure shouts Grrrrr, and if any character should growl, it's Fang.
Here's a picture of all 10 members of the Imperial Guard.
So now it's dilemma time! I quoted in a previous post that I would extend the group to 12 by adding two more female characters, but I'm having a problem picking up base figurines at a reasonable price. All of these Imperial Guard figurines I tend to put up for sale on eBay, which has always been the intention from day 1. The problem I have is, do I keep hold of them until I do get hold of the next two, or do I sell them now, and do the other two but lose the opportunity to have the twelve together in one photo? Decisions, decisions, decisions.
Anyway, as it stands I no longer have any more Imperial Guard members to do at the moment, which means I can finish off the original Wonder Man I started recently, plus I have a week off of work next week, so I intend to do those two figurines for my own collection.
