80s Duke

Pretty straight forward custom. I'm sure a lot of people have done this head swap - so just more realistic gear, weapon, and paint apps... Tell me what you think!

I did the same thing, got the head from Aly. I think it looks much better!

Can you still order them?

 

It's been a while, so I'll need a link..if one.

 

 

That's such a minor thing (basic head swap) but seeing how Hasbro is just so HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE!! on head or face sculpts on these, it makes a ton of difference for the BETTER.

Hey NG,

 

I love the custom but can you possibly take larger (dimensions, not file size) pictures? I'd like a better look at that face : )

Sorry Tom I suck at taking pictures! All of them look like they came from a cell @grumpy@ Heh Maybe better lighting. <scratching head> Hope these are a little better...

Hey VH,

 

Here's the head I got from Alyosha.

Man, NG, he looks really spectacular... like he'd blend right in with the other Joes. Definitely jealous of your talent... must build some sort of skill siphoning playset weapon...

 

Let me ask you this... what type of paint is that on the flesh? It blends nicely, you can hardly tell it's not plastic.

Thanks Tom! For skin and hair I use Citaldel Color (mix of Elf Flesh and Dwarf Flesh for Duke) as well as water so it goes on thin. Model Master Acryl and Polly Scale for clothing and gear. Again with a little water but not NEAR as much. Oh! And a little wash and dry brushing helps the details come out and make the paint look less "plastic-y!" Experiment with blacks, browns, grays, and blues to see what works well - just do these with acrylic paints also so you can take it off with a damp cloth or paper towel if it looks bad. (Try not to use fingers b/c of oils in the skin - I'm bad for that... <_< ) Again sorry for the bad picture taking!

That head is by far better than what Hasbro provided. Good job

Oh, and have a coverted Comicpack head for Flint from Aly too, that ones way better also. I think I'll have to get some heads from him when I move, just noticed he's gotta lotta cool stuff I haven't seen before.

At least (in MY defense) I did clarify my contention over the head sculpts (by Hasbro) as being "on these" as in...on the 25th sculpts. ;)
