Thanks - see I was a coward with Sunspot, I picked him up for Ã‚Â£2.00 in a sale. So it was kind of like a no lose situation that I thought I would try. The photo has picked up the difference between the paint on wonderman and the black paint I used but actually in reality it doesn't look that different. I really wanted the boots and and belt but was a bit scared to go with it with the paint! After doing Magik, I feel a bit more confident and I am sure I will improve! It's one of those things you really want it to look good but I found it really difficult to, as I have never painted anything before!! I will probably repaint Sunspot over the weekend, as I feel a bit more confident now.
I bought the New Mutants figures and although Wolfsbane and warlock were good, the Magik figure was awful and looked terrible with my ML X-Men. So I used the skirt, headress and boots from that. I hate the Black Widows neck but the hair and the costume worked.
I found figurerealm last week and had my heart set on doing a custom, even if it was bad!! Some of the customs are amazing, so I hop with practise I can improve but I don;t think would ever be able to do anything to intricate!
