Major Chip Hazard - Leader of the Commando Elite


Made for the "No-Joe-Challenge" #89 at joecustoms.com, "Faux-Joes", I took a stab at Chip Hazard from the film Small Soldiers. I really liked how the movie makes the typical hero figures into the badguys, and thought the Commando Elite could make for an interesting corrupt PMC organization in the 'Joe universe. This is my first real attempt at camo patterns on a figure, something I've always found daunting and wasn't too happy with when I finished the figure. Turned out alright in the photos, I'm encouraged to try some more elaborate patterns eventually.

Atonement and Penance - Guardian Statues

These are just some simple diorama background pieces I put together using some older Star Wars figures with static poses. I liked the way the first one came out so much that I decided I needed to make a darker counterpart. Very happy with how these came together!

Padmé Amidala - Base Figures
MegaBlocks World of Warcraft Swift Gryphon - Angelic Wings
Darkchylde Ariel - Demonic Wings
Cast - Skeleton Head
