As soon as I saw the Keltuss figure from the "Coliseum" wave, I knew I wouldn't use him as is. I already have a Skeletor in my collection (2 actually), and I didn't need another. Instead, I wanted to use this skeleton in a differnet way.
The figure's blue bones made me think of a frozen skeleton, so I decided to go in that direction and make this character an undead northerner, still clad in his heavy furs and brandishing a spear tipped with a shard of ice.
Obviously, the base body on this is Keltuss, but I swapped out the purple armor for some silver colored gear. The lower legs are from Atlus, the gauntlets are from Skapular, and the chest (which you really can't see hidden under his furs) is from a Silver Dwarf. I repainted all of these pieces to add some "ice" effect to them.
The furs obviously really help make this character. Both the shoulder fur and the loin fur came from a MOTU King Chooblah figure. The cape is from a Marvel Select Doom, with the hood cut off and some grey paint added.
The belt piece and the weapons were parts that were in my fodder bin. I am honestly not sure where they all came from, but I was super excited to find the icicle piece to use on top of a ML spear to make my icy weapon!
