    I've been working on some custom GI Joe action figures and card style artwork lately and in the process doing a lot of research. Meaning watching old cartoons and reading old comic books. LOL. Hard work, I know.

    Here's my take on the Oktober Guard Commander, Colonel Brekhov. Based on the classic Michael Golden version found in GI Joe Yearbook #2.

    Recipe:
    Hat, Torso, Upper Arms- repainted 25th Red Star
    Head- modified (cigar) & repainted 25th Red Star
    Web Gear- modified and repainted 25th Red Star & Indiana Jones
    Lower Shirt- modified & repainted Indiana Jones Russian Soldier & white stuff sculpting compound
    Legs- ROC Destro
    Lower Arms- modified and repainted 25th Red Star (elbows, joints) & ROC Hawk (lower arms and hands)
    Pistol- 25th Red Star
    AK-47- Modified & repainted Marauders
    Arm Pouch- modified TRU 1/18 Army Figure (?)

    Paints:
    Main Uniform- Tamiya TS-68 Wooden Deck Tan
    Web Gear, Hair- Tamiya XF-10 Flat Brown
    Lower Shirt & Uniform Detailing- mix of Bambi Brown & Mudstone by Delta Acrylic Paint
    Face, Forearms- Acrylics

    All card art, logos, graphics & type created in photoshop, printed on high quality paper and mounted to card stock.


    Thanks for taking a look and for any comments or questions you might have.

    Thanks, bellboy! Glad you like it. I haven't had any problems with the tamiya sprays. I agree some of the brush on acrylics are kinda hit and miss, though.

    Thanks!

    Most kind!
