    My "Ode to Jin" Bash. When I picked up a Classics Battle Begins 2-pack, I just had to make myself a classics Warpath. With a little help from Jin himself (Megs head removeal) and some Dremeling/painting I now have one. Poor Deadwing no longer has any legs. I still need to get some Acryl Flat Clear Coat to cut down on the glossy look and add some metallic color to the grey areas, but other than that I think I'm pretty happy.

    Your right about the shine, but it looks great otherwise.

    I'm not big on the hands or head. Still, fantastic work!

    I'd call it a movie warpath but whatever, that custom ROCKS! Especially for the first one you've completed. I think the changes you mentioned are a good idea but you're definitly well on your way to great bashing. I love the head on this guy but I would suggest different hands, perhaps movie swindles

    I agree that the flat paint will make him look better. I tend to paint most of my customs flat or semi-gloss to help bring out the details.

    Thanks, the head is from a left over Landmine/Hound I'm working on. The hands are Self-Sculpted...it's been awhile since I did anything like that so I hope to improve.

    Thanks to everyone for the compliments, here are 2 better detail shots (with new metallic paint)

    Sweet Warpath. It's very unique in its own way. Nothing more.

    I like it, the hands could be different though. Seems like this one should have more claw like hands. Hmmm...good job, though. Definitely a great first try, though. Keep it up, bro!!

    Funny, I never thought of using those hands for anything...but they may work here. Still does not solve the part-forming problem though, which I am out of ideas on. Gonna have to live with removable fists that I will someday lose, just like when I was a kid.
