The custom is a very special one to me, as it was the piece I debuted when I was asked to join the Four Horsemen at their first annual G-Con event in New Jersey. Asked to visit their studio as part of their day-long online conference event, I was honored to be able to showcase my custom work as part of their broadcast. Wanting to bring something brand new to show, I spent the week before the convention working on this gargoyle, which was a piece I had planned out for quite some time! Judging by the reaction it received, the Mythic Legions fans liked it as much as I do!
Knowing that I wanted to create a "stone-like" look for my Gargoyle by using a paint wash, I wanted to start with a black base body. To achieve that, I used a Torrion. The lower legs and arms were also painted black, as were the other pieces in the custom so I could create that paint wash.
The head is from a MOTU Whiplash. I drilled two holes in the head and used the horns from Torrionn to get the look I wanted for this character. The wings, hands, and loin piece are from a MOTU Lord Dactus and the feet are a custom cast that I bought from Marcus Akin.
All in all, this custom uses quite a few different pieces, but the paint wash really ties it all in together to make a cohesive looking figure.
