I've already told you how much i love this series - they rock.
I love the 'olde-school' photo technique you've used to present Fury this time. The sepia & rounded edges. It's a really nice touch and shows the attention to detail in presentation.
Hope we can see some new additions to the Bastards in the future.
Great work.

As mentioned in the CustomCon thread those mates are awesome and those aged pictures make them stand out even more. Good work!

Also, I wanted to ask, what product are you using to make your decals? Is it a german product?

Thanks a lot folks!

ARuloff, I use decal paper from this shop in Germany. It's pretty good. In case you want to use it, make sure to put a clear coat on it in case you're using an inkjet printer.

I'll update this thread tomorrow with Iron Man, including another of those "olde school" pics of him.

Next up is Tony Stark, known as

Iron Man

Here's what Fury has to say:
'Imperialist and railroad tycoon Anthony Edward Stark is as narcissistic, greedy and compulsive, as he is a genius. Given the money he earned by investing early in the Transcontinental Railroad, he was able to not only invent but also produce steam based operational systems, changing the face of the world once and for all. Established by his father decades ago, Stark Enterprises is now one of the leading forces in steam based developments and the railroad industry. Stark is a well known and respected man both in public and the scientific society, his family being connected with families like Reade, Brainerd and Campion, the young Archibald Campion visiting him very frequently. His financial independence granted him the possibility to work on his own vision of the future, so he finally was able to construct a steam driven suit, providing him unbelievable strength. It's hard to keep him calm, since working in the shadows doesn't feed his invincible ego, but he can finally create all of his ideas instead of wasting his talents to railroad and steamboat construction. It's obvious that you need a man like Stark in your team, since he's developing most of our equipment.'

Iron Man was the first character I did 're-imigine' in a steampunk universe. That was way before I came up with the Furyous Basterds concept. He's pretty clearly inspired by Sillof's great works! I also included some sublime references to expand this potential alternative universe. You folks heared of Boilerplate? Well, after he spend lots of time in his youth at Stark's place, little Archibald Campion will later build this incredible steampunk robot.

The recipe: All parts belong to the Iron Man movie 'mates. The helmet belongs to Mark I, the arms/hands and legs/feet to Iron Monger. For the chest armor, I switched the Mark I just turned the piece around, so the original backside is now used as the front to show all those wacky mechanics. In my opinion that's a pretty cool effect. The 'smoke pipe' (?) on his back is made out of a straw and the smoke itself is made from Chef Duff's blowtorch. The vintage color scheme is done by first coloring all parts black - he looked awesome!!! - and then brushing red and gold paint very roughly but careful on top of it.

smile.gif I was really thinking about Cap, but I don't see him anywhere in that universe. Sorry. In Sillof's re-imagination I thought he was one of the weakest characters.

Sorry for letting you wait so long, I was pretty busy, but here is the next member of the Furyous Basterds:

Wolverine

Fury says:
'A Canadian lumberjack going by the name of Logan. He left Fort St. James, British Columbia, to earn some more money by working for the Union Pacific Railroad. He signed a contract and soon became lead man, which eventually brought him to New York. He's a man of few words, but for all of us, 'furious' might fit him best. Sometimes. Let me put it this way: if there is a bar brawl, this is the guy who would be last standing no matter what, asking for another shot. If things get ugly, he is the right guy to send. He's the best in what he does, and what he does is bloody vampire business. Since he is a very skilled hand-to-hand combatant, Stark equipped him with a neat little gadget: Powered by a steam turbine carried on his back, he wears hydraulic claws on both hands, making him even more effective to make dead things deader..'

When I was thinking about which characters might work in a steampunk enviroment, Logan came to mind. I wanted to change his background a little, giving him a different treatment where he isn't a mutant but still has his claws. While browsing through pictures of steampunk customs, I found a lot people wearing those fancy steam-engine backpacks I really liked. So I came up with the idea, this Stark product might give Wolverine exactly what he needs: steam driven claws on both hands.

The recipe: His face belongs to movie Sabertooth (sic!), the hair piece to w28 Wolverine. His chest is from Ultimate Thor/Ares and his pants and cowboy boots are from the Few More Dollars pack. His bronze belt came with Nova. Both mechanical arm pieces are from movie Mark I Iron Man. The backpack is something I already modified for my Comedian's flamethrower. The cables are just some tubes.

Awesome, as always. The 'mates look great, and the story is a lot of fun.

I agree (and I mean no offense by it) that Sillof's Cap was the weakest, but I think Cap could work in this group. I imagine Steve Rogers as a hero of the Civil War, a model of Union and Republican values of patriotism and equality. In the waning days of the war, as Sherman marched south, a secret sect of the Ku Klux Klan lead by the nefarious Red Hood crept north with the sole purpose of crushing Rogers' spirit and the spirit of the Union. By the time Rogers had learned the cruel fate of his family, the Red Hood had disappeared back into the South. Shortly after the war, with nothing to lose, Rogers agreed to become the guinea pig of an American scientist familiar with the work of a young Dr. Jekyll and the potency of vampiric blood with a few secrets of his own.

Another awesome custom! This is such a sweet set.

If they are vampire hunting maybe logan could have an alternate set of hydraulic claws that are wooden?

Thanks a lot for all your Wolvie love!

Turtle, your Cap and especially Red Skull Hood background story is great! And including vampire blood is a a good point although it's a little grotesk. But very cool! Maybe I should think about it. Anyway, thanks a lot!

Nessex, I also like the wooden claws idea! That should be pretty easy to do, right?

Mini Nugget, I forgot to say that I really loved your idea to call Starks claw aparatus S.N.I.K.T.! Cool idea!

Next up: Hawkeye.
