Punk Military Helmet by Mace-X
Punk Military Helmet
I had a bunch of different paintball/airsoft parts in my fodder bin and finally decided to use them.

This piece is actually a combination of a torn apart airsoft/paintball helmet mixed with a standalone helmet, bolted together.

I was shooting for a more modern Vietnam style helment-you know, the customized helmets of the time, but with a more modern look. Basically what you would find in a modern day mercenaries arsenal.

Inspiration came from a bunch of different sources, but I tried to keep the traditional painted on look, as well as kind of 'in style' stickers.

Like a I said, it was made from multiple parts-but they were crafted to stay solid AND comfortable. This piece is just as good as a cosplay as it is being used in an actual game.

Lego Sith Lord by Mace-X
Lego Sith Lord
I've never done a Lego 'custom' before, but after going through some old boxes, I found it pretty fun to try and mix and match parts to make original characters.

In this case, I went with a Star Wars 'Sith Lord' type character. I wanted an older era, EU feel to him, when Sith Lords looked more like evil royalty than menacing villains.

I actually tried to stay more in the lines of the 'purist' form of Lego customizing-in the sense that I didn't paint or modify anything, just mixing and matching Lego parts.

However, I did stray from the path a bit with his cape. It's actually from a knockoff MegaBlocks type line and is made of rubber. It fits Lego figures pretty well though and I thought it worked perfectly here, not to mention I wasn't trying THAT hard to be a purist.

In any case, I'll probably dabble more in the future just to see what familiar looking characters I can try to Lego-ize.

Easterling Rally Master by Mace-X
Easterling Rally Master
This guy had the misfortune of having his hand break during the course of his life. Even more unfortunate, the break as in a bad spot that would have been more trouble than it would have been worth to restore. So instead, I decided to turn him into a custom.

I decided to roll with the break and give him more of a veteran of many battles look, replacing the hand with a nasty looking hook, which was glued in and repainted to look worn.

I figured I wouldn't stop there and wanted to make him look a bit more original, so I turned him into a Rally Master or sorts. This would be the guy that the rest follow or coordinate with.

To get that look, I used a spare Spawn banner, repainted it, drilled a hole in the figures back and then glued it on. I personally think it fits pretty well!

Also did a little touch up on the boots, making them look a bit dirtier.

Figure features:

-6 inch height

-17 points of movement

-Custom design

-Custom paint

-Spear weapon

Speeder (Battle Damaged) by Mace-X
Speeder (Battle Damaged)
As I've said before, I enjoy messing around with different Star Wars vehicles. I love pretty much all their designs and the modifications you can make to them and they are usually fairly priced. One of my usual complaints though (which is just me being me) is how 'factory' they tend to look, mostly in things like weathering and battle damage. Not that they're terrible, but the customizer in me always wants to see them look more 'real'. That's where this guy came in for a fairly quick modification to have fun.

A solid repaint, the point here was just to dirty it up a bit, add a little here and there, without going too overboard.

Vehicle features:

-3.75 inch scale

-Flipping 'Battle Damage' panel

-Custom design

-Custom paint

-Sealed to protect paint

-Removeable and fireable turret weapon and retracting gunner platform

Boxcar (Apocalypse Grunt Car) by Mace-X
Boxcar (Apocalypse Grunt Car)
Another apocalypse type car, I decided to have a little fun with this generic G.I Joe type car.

Not quite sure where I got it from years back, I think it was from a Corps type line. In any case, it was very straightforward and built really solid.

Most of the work went into painting, but the biggest mod I did was adding the spikes on the front. Originally from a Street Sharks car, time had worn them down and they broke off from the main car. Seeing a possibility, I sanded them down, cleaned them up and glued them on. I decided to attach them using hot glue like usual, both because it's strong and also because it looks like a very 'crude' weld job when painted.

The rest of the work went into painting the body-used my usual paints, some from small bottles as well as spray paints to give it a worn look. Of course, everything was sealed as well!

Vehicle features:

-3.75 inch scale

-5 points of movement

-Custom design

-Custom paint

-Sealed to protect paint

-Removeable and fireable turret weapon
