Those are all great. And the character choices! Yondu?! Miss Martian? Mano? Shadow Lass? (gotta love the Legion theme) Yondu?!

But seriously, what the fuck is up with that Ulik? FMS should be banned from these things. It's like Tiger Woods bragging about beating all those old guys at golf.

I've been looking forward to this and you guys haven't disappointed.Great job to you all.

Owl,firstly thanks for putting in some history for the unlearned like myself.Made it a lot easier.Excelent start to the challenge experience.That first completed pic really caught my attention,really feeling the Headgear and tight paints with tough colours.Bravo!

TT,at this scale you have achieved so much.Strong,even paints and no overflow between the colours.Would loved to have seen a recipe to know what you created and what was frankensteined.Love him though,great work.

AQ,straight up you get my attention cause you created a Martian character.My true weakness.Gotta say you achieved the perfect shade of Green for her Flesh and a great choice of Base too.It's great to see you back at Customising,look forward to seeing more!

FMS,i swear you have developed a thing for characters with weird Feet.Slick and subtle shading of paints,great combo of parts and i can see where some of your Sculpting has been blended in.I'm looking forward to having a gander at your WIP stuff when i'm done ogling here.Excellent asl always,not that i'd ever expect anything less from you.

FP.great choice that of course will fit right in with your current Customising plans.Skin Paints are flawless and the clothing lines are absolutely tight.Headpiece looks perfect too,this is a piece that anyone would buy if they saw her in the Shops.Reall outstanding Figure.

Jack,your Who Customs just get better and better and it really has become your forte'.Love the way his clothing hangs and all the fine little paint detail you've included.Looks like he came straight off the line with all the other Who Series Figs.Great work mate.

Bravo to all once again,really was a pleasure to look at these all.Thanks so much to Niteowl,Scotty,Dozy and FMS for all their efforts putting this together.
Now i juts gotta figure out who i'm gonna give my points to.Please everyone who is a Member here put your votes in,these guys all deserve the recognition for the efforts they have all put in here.

He was almost entirely a MU Vision. I made the fin on his head from a sheet of crafting foam, the strap across his chest from a rubber band, and his bow from one of the plastic "rods" that model kit pieces used to come attached to (I never throw anything away!). The quiver came from a SHS Hawkeye. I honestly don't recall where I got the arrow; it was in my "junk drawer".

NiteOwl - Yours was one of the ones that I was the most keen on seeing simply because you always pick the wackiest characters and I love that. You didn't disappoint as usual. The use of the fodder was very clever and you managed to get it to fit really well. The choice to paint the head so that it looks like a silhouette inside the helmet was executed beautifully and hey, you did a great job with the yellow.

TotalToyz - Just the scale is enough to do me in, so full props to the fact you were prepared to work in 3 3/4. I love the GotG and Yondu is an absolute must. Great job on the customising as you really made amazing use of all sorts of 'bits' to get this to work so well together.

AQ71 - The fact that you had to tell me what head you used is what this is all about. You made it your own and the character stands on it's own so well because of it. Rubber capes are never easy to paint and you managed to get great coverage. The contrasting colours of red and white are asking for trouble and you've done them justice.

fp_spirit - An overdue character for sure and I love the blue you used, simply a perfect match. Some great line work really makes her pop nicely and it all comes together beautifully, especially the detail in the face.

JackKnight - The most prolific customiser ever goes for a character with subtle amounts of fine detail. I'm amazed by how well the detail on the cloak is complimented by things like the gold cord/clasp holding the cloak and how can I not give you kudos for making an Eric Roberts action figure?  Cheesy

Well done one and all!!  Thumbs Up
