    Communiqué from Red Sultan to Baron Ironblood.

    Baron,
    As instructed I have been travelling the Dark Continent in search of suitable applicants for the position of your personal bodyguard. I believe I have found a most promising candidate. His name is Malik ibn Ini-Herit. He is the eldest son of Falsad Ini-Herit, CEO of the Pharos Group. As you may be aware the Pharos group is currently the premier personal protection and army for hire organization in Egypt. Their family claims direct lineage to the personal honor guard of the Pharaoh Kufu. Genetic lineage and archeological evidence seems to lend credence to this claim. The Group guarantees the complete loyalty of each of their mercenary guards. It would seem that there have been multiple incidences in their families history where one family member has been pitted against another through due to contractual obligations to warring households. Death at the hands of another Ini-Herit seems to be a great honor was incurred in this manner.
    As a potential client I was allowed restricted access to a number of their files. I must admit Baron, their track record is both quite surprising and most impressive. I am also now certain of the fates of several of our former assassins. It would seem that the PG has had guards placed with some of our enemies who continue to elude our retribution. Malik himself would seem to be able to claim the deaths of at least two of the assassination squads sent against the Premier of Kazakhstan.
    “The Talon,” as he is referred to once a contract has been issued, is certified in weapons usage in an impressively wide variety of calibers, but it is his close quarters prowess that I believe you will find the most impressive. He has mastered the use of both the executioner’s scimitar and cybernetic interface body armor. I have secured a temporary contract with the Pharos Group. “Talon” has been paid and sanctioned to compete for a more permanent posting as your personal honor guard. I highly anticipate a most entertaining showing in the tournament.

    BLOOD FOR THE BARRON.
    Red Sultan out.

    Fighting Style
    Sebekkha “The Crocodile Spirit” adapted to both band-to-hand and the use of the Shamshir.

    Weapon and Equipment
    Executioner’s Shamshir (Greater scimitar)
    Horus Power Claw
    Horus Power Armor

    Parts List.
    Power Armor: Modified and articulated Startgate Move Horus armor.
    Body and Arms: Cast copy of Toxic Blast Venom
    Legs: Marvel Wrecker
    Power Claw: Ironmonger upper arm with elbow joint from cast from TB Venom, Wink hand with custom cast claws and added ball and socket for articulation.
    Forearm armor: Cast Halo bits.
    Chainmail chest, back, and belt: Sculpted from Kneadatite Brown.
    Skirt Piece: Sculpted from Kneadatite Brown
    Scimitar: McFarlane figure

    Work Done on Figure:
    Except for the legs, sword, and armored forearm (Ironmonger upper arm) this entire figure is made of custom sculpted or cast pieces.
    The head armor was cast and then modified to both fit on the figure and to have full neck articulation. It was also filled with hot glue to create a socket for the torsos neck ball to pop into.
    The Ironmonger forearm dremmeled out so an additional forearm piece could be inserted to create an articulated elbow joint. The hand of the power claw was made from individually cast fingers and a cast Hellboy Blink Hand.
    The Chainmail was sculpted using Kneadatite Brown stuff. The Sculpt was rolled out in a thin sheet and the texture was applied. When the sculpt had cured it was cut to shape and size and glued to the figure. The skirt piece was made in the same way.
    The figure was primed in solid brown and then all areas were dry brushed with several different colors. No inks or washes were used to bring out the details.
    I made two different left arms and used hot glue to make the forearm socket. This way they are easily swapped out.


    Notes of Interest:
    This was my first time painting metallic gold and African skin tone. I think both came out very nicely. Also, other than the Krylon base coat, this figure was painted entirely with Walmart Brand craft paints.

    The headpiece is molded from one of the original movie figures. The originals are soft and rubbery. Once I molded and cast it I then added a ball and socket so he would have articulated head movement. But yeah, I am a crazy big stargate fan.
