A very easy and cheap custom. The body is from a bootleg Superior Spiderman (~8 euros) and it is painted all black, with bright red eyes.

I like this, suggestions and questions:

-what paint/paint method did you use? I'm assuming airbrush because its a very smooth job
-hows paint rub on the joints? do anything to avoid the issue later?
-i would suggest a (very) dark blue drybrush to bring out the details and make it pop a bit (remember, less is more) as various black figures do (black suit spidey, venom, etc)

That looks really nice.

Probably the best way to easily (and cheapest) army build a well articulated Foot Ninja. With ML Superior Spider-Man being mostly black, the size is right, and it's less painting hassle then buying the NECA Arcade Foot Soldiers in bulk since they have to be wiped off and then painted over, the Mirage Foot usually go for a premium price, and most that sell individual Foot Ninja don't ship internationally.

The paints are Citadel. No, no airbrush, simply a normal Citadel brush

-hows paint rub on the joints? do anything to avoid the issue later?
Unfortunately painting on the joints has proven to be very difficult. Moreover, the abs in this bootleg are backward, so every time you use that joint some paint comes off.
Probably it would be better using a varnish

I know what you mean, but I don't like it :trazz:

You know that I like easy customs, so here you are my last one.

I like the Agent Bishop in the IDW comics and a wanted a 6" version.

It is just a Marvel Legends Agent Coulson with black hair and tie...

Now, if only this Kickstarter campaign started again... we would have also a nice EPF army...

I wish that Kickstarter would come back on. I'm a sucker for skeletons and I could use some SWAT/Military guys.

Love the Bishop tweaks, now I wanna get one and to it, but I never find a decent priced Coulson.

Actually this was reasonably cheap (29 euro shipping included from the US).

Is it possible to change the thread's name?

Edit your first post then click on go advance and there should be an option. This has only worked twice for me other times even though I changed it it's still the same.

Unfortunately it changes the first post title, not the thread's :(

Yeah like I said it only worked twice for me. Ask a mod to change it for you.
