Cecilia Reyes MkIII

Here's another custom I've done before, twice before, but she seems to be a very popular X-Character, surprising considering her short lived time in the X-men comics.

Paints used...

Yellow parts of the Custom - Sunburst Yellow, Vermin Brown, and Golden Yellow.

Blues - Ultramarines Blue, Blue Ink, and Midnight Blue.

Skin and Hair - Bestial Brown, Rhinox Hide, Vermin Brown, and Abaddon Black.

Other colours used - Evil Sunz Scarlet, Skull White, and Chainmail.

Will of the People (Captain Britain Corps)

This is Will of the People, a member of the Captain Britain Corps.

The Captain Britain Corps are a group of Captain Britain's set to watch over the British Isles in all other dimensions, and the Marvel Multiverse.

They are often, but not always alternate versions of Captain Britain. Other persons that are members from different realities includes: Black Panther, Captain America, Ka-Zar, Killraven, Kymri, Lockheed, Meggan, Psylocke, Super-Skrull and Pete Wisdom.

The name varies, for instance - in Earth-616 they're commonly known as Captain Britain Corps, but on Earth-522 for example they would instead be known as Captain England Corps since the representative from Earth-522 is Captain England.

The Corps where originally formed by Merlyn, and there main priority was to protect the Marvel Multiverse. Each member of the squad would be set the task of protecting the dimensional equivalent of Britain. Even though they sometimes joined forces to defeat bigger and more dangerous foe.

Will of the People has only appeared in one single panel, this was in issue #50 of Excalibur, which was written and drawn by Alan Davis in 1992

Will of the People is basically the Corps version of Iron Fist, so there was only one figurine I was ever going to use...

Minimal amounts of preparation needed, removed his collar, mask ties, and belt ends attached to his right leg.

Sculpting involved adding mask extensions to the cheek area, belt ends on his left leg and a disc on his belt.

Paints used...

Red areas - Evil Sunz Scarlet, Blue Ink, and Red Gore
Blue areas - Ultramarines Blue, Blue Ink, and Midnight Blue
White areas - Skull White, Ice Blue, and Glacier Blue (Vallejo)
Skin - Elf Flesh and Dwarf Flesh

Mesmero MkII

Here's one I've done before, the X-Men villain Mesmero. This was a commission request from a fellow collector.

I slightly changed this one, adding more folds to his cloak.

Paints used on Mesmero were...

Purple parts - Screamer Pink, Blue Ink and Liche Purple.

Green parts - Scorpion Green, Blue Ink and Dark Angels Green.

Abaddon Black for the base, and Skull White for his eyes.

The inspiration for my choice of base figurine (Cosmic Boy) was this cover to Amazing Spider-Man No. 207.
