I though I would give these guys a separate thread so I could give you guys the story with them. I made them for a contest over on figurerealm, but I thought I'd show them here to.
Here's the story I came up with:
In an alternate history Hitler has managed to create his own version of the four horsemen in hopes of bringing about the apocalypse and ruling the world. Through occult studies and modern science he has created four nigh unstoppable warriors and has unleashed them on an unsuspecting and unprepared world.
Death: He was a high ranking officer in the German army and a right hand man to Hitler. When he was badly injured in an attempt on Hitler's life Nazi scientists kept him alive with mechanical parts run by an arcane power. This breakthrough is what led to the creation of the other horsemen. He was given mechanical arms that shift to a new form of Death's classic scythe. He is a remorseless killer and brilliant strategist.
Pestilence: He was the head of the team that created Death. Jealous of the results he infused his blood with the same arcane magic that powers Death. This gave him the ability to spread a type of radiation sickness to all around him. The sickness causes almost instant crippling illness followed by a slow and painful death.
War: He was the top performer in the Aryan super soldier program. Blond haired, blue eyed, and a skilled warrior he lived for nothing more than besting his rivals in battle. He was given a mechanical heart to pump a special form of the arcane magic that grants him super human abilities. He has an unstoppable blood thirst and has yet to be bested in battle.
Famine: An unwilling test subject that was starved to the point of insanity and near death. Fed a diet of nothing but bugs and rats infected with small amounts of Pestilence's sickness he soon grew stronger while his body wasted away to nothing. As he grew stronger he found he could suck the life out of other creatures. Driven mad he lives for nothing but the pursuit of the strongest life forces he can take.
Death was an Indy nazi general with a head from a GI Joe Wraith. The arms come from a McFarlane tourtured soul figure. I replaced the lower legs with legs from an episode 3 Obi Wan for a little more height. The figure was completely painted with acrylics.
Pestilence is a ROC Cobra Commander figure with the mask removed and Henry Sr.'s jacket. The suitcase is from Henry Sr. also with a Baroness scuba tank added on and the hat is from Indy. The whole figure was painted with acrylics.
War's upper body is GI Joe Roadblock and Wraith legs. The head is from an Indy cematary warrior. The backpack is from Blowtorch with the mechanical heart coming from a McFarlane Oz figure. The whole figure was repainted with acrylics.
Famine is a deadite skeleton with ROC Cobra Commanders coat and a mask from a GI Joe Diver. I added some electrical wires and painted the coat with acrylics.
I had a lot of fun making these and I hope you enjoy them. Any comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.

Revenge is an act of passion; vengeance of justice. Injuries are revenged; crimes are avenged.

I like Pestilence best. The hat, case and canebrella make him look sinister.
