I have been enjoying Lance's Rebel Angel customs and universe.

So this is my take on Badlands Zartan, I plan on doing other characters from the Dreadnoks based on Mutated versions of them.

Thanks guys, and someone asked how he was made well here are the bits that went into him.

Head - Secret Saturday Cartoon Naga
Full Figure - Zartan 25th anni
Long Coat - Cade Skywalker
Rifle - McQuarrie Chewbacca

Then paint, lol.

Here are some other customs I am proud of the 8 from aduba Marvel Star Wars:

the armored Ki-Adi Mundi looks awesome

I suppose he does, pity I haven't made a custom of him, lol.

my bad, I have poor vision so I assumed that was what the one on the end was lol

09-13-2010, 03:06 PM
Nope he is a character from the Marvel Star Wars comics the actually story that introduced the Jaxxon character that everyone (except me so nearly everyone) hates, lol.

sorry I have nooo idea what this is but...
the paint apps on this guy are great, love that weathery look on his coat and armor, it'd be cool to see that faded color on the poc zartans hooded vest

very cool

Nice dude! Indeed the Badlands are a dangerous place. A perfect breading ground for Mutant Dreadnoks! What's their story? Was he a genetic clone experiment gone horribly wrong (or horribly right?)? Are they mercs? Do they serve a master? The possibilities are endless. Feel free to add to the joeverse and story line however you want. Hope to see a lot more!

I'm surprised there's not a GI Joe character that looks exactly like this. This guy SCREAMS 80's Joe villain.

Upon closer inspection of the picture, I just wanted to say the paint app is incredibly well done. Better than my own. Extremely clean.

this figure is awesome on both a technical level (the paint and parts) but also on a conceptual level....i think the only thing i would add would be for you to tie in Zartan's face tats and his hood...maybe using a clone wars plo koon hood? i dunno...this is very inspiring though...

Lance that is some high praise coming from you, and I don't believe it, or is that I won't believe it lol, you my friend are inspiration and a damn good painter, I would kill to be able to paint like you, I have a long way to be up to your standards - but I am working on it.

Also you do something that I could never do, and that's sculpt, I haven't got the foggiest about any of that, if I did it would open up a lot of possibilities for me.

As for you other guys that have commented on my work thank you very much, it's a pleasure to showcase some of the work I have done, I have done other stuff but it is all Star Wars.

For example these two, although I was going use the camel dude to make Zanzibar (You know keeping with the Arabian name and all):

Big IV

I don't see Zartan when I look at this. I see a variation of Savage Dragon (needs more fin). Might just be me. The paint app is clean.

09-15-2010, 11:06 PM
I know what your saying but it looks nothing like Savage Dragon, it actually does resemble a Naga from the fantasy games.

Anyhow here is another custom I have done just needs a handler, thinking the beast could go with a cobra royal guard handler.

Its different, cool concept
