I think I remember you from Fwoosh!  The Watchmen figures kick all kinds of ass!  I love the head on the Comedian and the cloth cape on Nite-Owl, a really great idea!  Also anyone who can paint any version of Rorschach's face is aces in my book!

I like your Dredd better than ToyBiz's and did you sculpt the Tick head?  It's brilliant!

Welcome to the Customs Board NiteOwl and what a great start.
Loving your Watchmen figs,clever idea on Niteowls Cape and Comedian is my definite fave here.That's a Punisher head yeah?
The Tick is spot on for mind and Dredd to e lloks like one hell of an effort.

Glad to see them all mate and look forward to seeing more offerings from you.

Thanks guys, Dredd hasn't fared well over the years, I'm still thinking of combining a Punisher base with LCBH Dredd. I sculpted the Tick head from scratch and the base is a modified Sinister Six Venom. Thanks for looking guys.

Thanks, Andy. Here is another older custom that I did about a year or so ago,

The base is a Black Panther, with claws, ears etc dremelled off. I used sculpey to fill in the holes under his belt. I painted the lower half with silver paint and dry brushed white over the top. I mixed metallic blue paint with a darker blue for the top half, I dry brushed that area with black and painted all other areas by hand. I painted the lines to the "Spidey" mouth bit, the lines just aren't showing up too well. I don't know a hell a lot about Captain Universe, only that I really loved the What If issue were Spidey gets to keep the Uni-Power, I lifted the following from Wiki .......
The Uni-Power is an extra-dimensional force that possesses an individual (or on one occasion, twins) in a time of crisis, transforming that person into Captain Universe. As Captain Universe, the transformed person typically retains his or her original personality and appearance, though with Captain Universe's costume and heroic traits superimposed over the original. Captain Universe generally possesses superhuman strength, flight, X-ray vision, telekinesis, enhanced senses, and a psychic awareness of imminent danger; when a person already possessing one or more of these abilities was transformed into Captain Universe, those abilities were amplified by vast amounts.

Thanks Guys, I appreciate the kind words. Here is another one from the vault.

Now for CAPTAIN CARROT!
Rodney was a cartoonist who lived in Gnu York (a parody of New York, New York) and worked for "BC Comics", his world's version of DC Comics, writing and drawing the comic book series, "Just'a Lotta Animals" (a parody of the Justice League of America). While working in his office, Rodney found a windowbox where he was growing carrots was hit by a meteor fragment launched by Starro the Conqueror. Upon eating one of the irradiated carrots, or "cosmic carrots," Rodney found himself turned into a superpowered rabbit. Donning an old Halloween costume, Rodney teamed up with other super-powered animals affected by the same meteor's fragments, and the group (with the aid of Superman, who Rodney had met just before discovering his irradiated carrots) defeated Starro. Afterwards, the animals decided to form the superhero team called the Zoo Crew, with Captain Carrot as its leader.
The base is the Superman that came with Bats in the 2 pack a few years ago and all the rest is sculpey, 4 coats of yellow paint later and here he is........









Comments are always appreciated,
