    Back again with another addition to my Swamp Thing collection!

    I'm definitely getting more comfortable with limb swapping and modifications, so I thought it was time to tackle another character that I doubt will have a figure made anytime soon.

    In the New 52 run it was revealed that while the Swamp Thing is the avatar of The Green, his long-time love interest Abigail Arcane was born to be the avatar of The Rot. This is her final form after she assumed the mantle of Rot Queen.

    Rot Queen Abigail was made from the following figures:

    Marvel Legends Scream-Body, Legs, Upper Arms
    Marvel Legends Typhoid Mary-Head, Hair
    Marvel Legends Polaris-Lower Arms, Hands
    Marvel Legends Archangel (Toy Biz)-Wings

    Paints used were Rust-Oleum flat black primer and FolkArt acrylics.

    There were definitely some liberties taken with the design. I couldn't find any suitable bat-style wings, so I went with what I had from an old Archangel figure. After trying at least three or four times with various brushes and a toothpick, I just couldn't get the eyes correct so I left them black.

    I'll need to do some more work with the wings because the weight keeps causing them to fall down. I'll use some stands to keep them up while displayed for now, but I'll figure out a way to tighten them later.

    All-in-all, I'm really happy with how she turned out! She'll look great in my Swamp Thing collection once I get it reorganized to make room for the newest additions.

    As always, comments and critique are appreciated!

    **Edit** I found a substitute for the Archangel wings that fit the character better and eliminate the drooping wing problem! The new wings are from a DC Universe Batwing figure.

    With a few more paint tweaks and the new wings, I'm MUCH happier with this figure now!
