    Vintage Eternian Palace Guards

    This is my redesign of palace guards. I am gonna make them in a few different versions. I've decided to reuse original MOTU parts and to keep the original paint job of Man-At-Arms body so that these guards would keep the same vintage toy feeling if they are placed next to the original MAA figure.









    Eternian Palace Guards, different designs from FILMATION, Mattel minicomics and Ladybird books.

    Oh wow so cool. I had some palace guards like that back in the day but they were just Man-At-Arms with additions from a 10 year old mind. These are great!!!!

    Thank you very much guys!

    Here is the second version of the palace guard.





    ...and some "the Making Of" pictures. I've decided to pull down (to narrowed) Man At Arms wide face (using needle and thread) and to paint eyes and eyebrows completely different so that he doesn't look like MAA with a new helmet.

    Thanks motumulder!
    No, in fact painting the eyes was the easiest part on this figure...it took me about 5 minutes. This was generally a very quick custom.

    Version 3 (Battle Armour)
    This is my attempt of something that we already seen from many other customizers, but I just had to add this one to my collection.

    Thank you very much Tyke, you are in top 4 of my favorite customizers since I saw your works when I joined the Org. Of course these 4 are all vintage customizers.

    These are all great, but I think I like the one done with the Battle Armor torso the best. It makes for a cool, uniformly-armored look.
