As soon as I finished my blue Djinn custom, I knew that I wanted to make a similar custom in red to use as an Ifrit. I imagine this character as an adversary to the Djinn. He is hot tempered and aggressive where the Djinn is calm and careful. On display, they certainly make a complimentary pair. They obviously share many of the same pieces, but I also tried to make them different so that they would each be unique in their own way.
You can read this character's story on my Instagram page.
My Ifrit began life as a Gorothokk shadow orc figure. The first step was to disassemble the figure so that I could paint his body parts red. I tried a few different reds for this custom, eventuall decided in a mix between Vallejo Red and Vermillion. The armor pieces for the Ifrit all came from a Barbarian Builder Kit. I like the way the flat black of that armor works with the red of the ifrit's body. His feet were a custom cast part I bought from Marcus Akin. Those bare feet were one of the pieces that I did differently than the blue Djinn (who has the fully armored feet in gold) and I really like what they add to this character! The ponytail for the Ifrit is also different from the one I used on the Djinn. This one comes from a Warcraft Legends of the Storm Illidan figure. Like the Djinn, I dremeled a hole in the back of this head and glued the ponytail in place.
For my Ifrit's accessories, I had two different looks that I switch back and forth from, not able to decide which I like better. The first look is a pair of flames that he has sprouting from his hands. Those flame effects are from a Marvel Legends Scarlet Witch figure. The second option uses a pair of weapons from the Masters of the Universe Draego-man figure. I never really cared for the "flame effect" on this sword and whip, but I do like how they look in the Ifrit's hands and I routinely swap them and the flame fists onto the custom in my display.
