Next up, Slice and Dice!  These guys took some work!  For Slice, used green stuff for the removeable mask and the leggings.  Had some compatibility issues with the upper arms, had to dremmel the shoulder sockets.  Added the fabric ribbons.  Greenstuff for the throwing star and dagger on the sleeves.  

For Dice, used Tunnel Rat's bandana for his bandana (cutting/dremmeling), dremmeled and sanded off the padded rows on the viper forearms.  Cut the viper forearms and straightened them.  Green stuff for some of the viper pad/strap.  Used Wolverine Colossus knee joints modified to fit and altered for the shape of the knee pad.  Removed the accessories from the para viper upper legs and sanded.  Mixed paint for the purple and the skin tone.  Used ROC Storm Shadow ropes, Hard Master star and greenstuff (I think) for the arm band.  Also crazy kitbash on the web gear.

Even the photo session on these guys turned out to be a bear, had trouble getting the red to show up right.

Slice!

Hey guys, long time no see!  I just did this project for a Stargate original character custom contest.  Check it out!

With SG-1 missing, the SGC exhausts all available means to determine their fate.  With the help of their allies, a desperate plan is enacted.  Traveling on a Tok'ra cargo ship, Colonel Matthews along with SG-6 is sent to rescue SG-1 from a mother ship currently landed on a planet with no stargate.  Assisting with the mission is Horshack, a free Jaffa and friend of Teal'c.

Next up:  Ninja Force Zartan and Silent Castle Red Ninjas, with special guests: Slice and Dice, and Zandar!  I had this done months ago, just posting them now.  Did a bunch of work on this one!  Check out the tricky parts:  Zartan head with hood removed, greenstuffed the hole and mixed skin tone for it.  Added mohawk from MU storm.  Arm shield cut and dremmeled out from Resolute Storm Shadow lower arm.  Thigh sheath from two Copperhead leg sheaths (and two copper head knifes).  Also I modded the left thigh to change it from the cobra commander pouch to a continuing leg strap.  Star Wars chain for the shoulder chain.

Special thanks to Daremo for the outstanding ninja weapons for the Silent Castle Red Ninjas!

Ninja Force Zartan!


I didn't match the green to the vintage.  Now that I've taken the pictures, I think I'd like to match the green closer to the original.  At the time, I didn't even own the vintage version, and that particular color of green I used was just a nice color, went on smooth and not too thin or thick.


Dreadnok tatoo!




Close ups of the head/hair and the knife pouches.




With Slice and Dice!


With Zandar!


The Silent Castle Red Ninjas!  Really just comic accurate weapons (thanks Daremo!)
