    Finished my 1:6 Berserker Uruk Hai.

    It’s the first 1:6 custom I’ve ever done and the first that uses any kind of real materials and I love it. Your move, Asmus.


    Base body is the Worldbox AT027. I was about to sell it off when I thought- What if I paint it red?? and that’s how this was born.

    Initial layer done in a mix of red, black and blue ink. It pools up nicely and leaves very Uruk esque blotches.
    After that I moved to acrylics, some brushed some airbrushed and the white hands are gauche paint to separate it texturally from the flesh.

    If I hadn’t begun by painting the body I’d have sculpted loads more muscle onto it- especially the traps and lats but he gets away with being a slightly more athletic Berserker.


    Base head- Suicide Squad screaming Joker resin cast off eBay- massively modified and sculpted over with Milliput

    Sword- cut and shaved down from a block of wood. Hand guard is sculpted. I would’ve wrapped the handle in cloth but that would’ve meant shaving that part down to a potentially overly fragile degree in order for it still to fit in the figure’s hand so I thought better of it.

    Blood added later.


    Dirty cloth parts are a cut up gym sock soaked in coffee and painted.
    Leather loin cloth, gloves, straps and sandals are cut from a slab of leather I’ve had for over 10 years.

    Studs on leather are just dots of chrome. They’re the only thing I couldn’t reproduce in a more accurate way.
    Feet were broadened and toes enlarged with apoxie because the standard ones were way too thin.

    Forearm weapon- sculpted entirely from apoxie but the blades are two diecast wolverine claws which I bent to be appropriately curved and then sculpted over to add a rougher texture and give more width.

    There’s an interchangeable left gripping hand in case I want him holding the sword with both hands or a decapitated Rohirrim warrior like the Sideshow Statue.

    Arrows- toothpicks with apoxie sculpted feathers.
    6x Strap Buckles- all individually sculpted with apoxie with part of a flat paper binder clip as the centre.
    Originally the buckles were just folded paper clips but as this project developed it was clear that they weren’t gonna cut it.

    Ready to assemble.

    Yes indeed. If you Click the ‘Spoiler: Process’ tab in the first post then you’ll see all the steps and what I used.
