Skipped a week due to work crunch.
Printed out most of the parts now - including new head part to go with head armor.

Looks like I need to figure out how to connect these parts. Probably leather and chain..etc

I wonder how the Skull knight sits on those spikes :D

Had to extend out the neck a little bit. It will be covered with black cloth material.

Overall shapes and parts. I will work on the cloth material and parts connection next.

WIP update..
Still more parts to print (and reprint), and checking the scale and fitting..etc.
A couple more weeks to go

Hello Berserker friends!
I'm starting a new custom build for Skull knight

Previously, I tested him on my old Steed (borrowed from Nazgul from LOTR)

Skull Knight is too big and the horse has short neck/Legs than it should.
It won't look right - proportion-wise, but I want to try anyways.

So I've started building the armor parts in 3D

Still WIP, and I'm running 2 projects at the same time.. Will try to update every weekend -ish.

Pricey, but looks great together!

exclusive Skull Knight and regular Guts pre-orders are up at threezero now

Wow  :schnoz: that Skull knight looks amazing, but there is a part of me that wants to see any company make a newer character, like any one in Guts party, lets hope they keep the line going.
Great interest and number of sales figure of the series guarantees the next character.

Good example of this is 66' TV Batman. many people cry for it. Hot Toys ans NECA developed good looking 12" figures and everyone liked it. The sales, however, wasn't that impressive as expected and the left over ended up in the bargain bean. Hot Toys also stopped scheduled other products in the series.

They also announced Skull Knight

Good question. From the last two images and a view of the arm (elbow area), it doesn't look like the arm bends. Not sure about the legs or other joints.
Actually, I believe it's using silicon muscle body. It's quite popular in muscular body type these days (Hot toys Hulk, Thor figures used them.
One problem is silicon rubber has deterioration issue over time. You need to apply protective oil and don't keep the figure in bent pose too long.

Nose seems a little long, but overall detail looks better than Medicom already.

That's my guess as well. It's kinda obvious, I guess. :ubik:

Hopefully they will be more faithful to original graphic novel and do a better job with leather and metal(ic) parts. :guts:
I still wish Hot Toys or Enterbay do their version.

Shameless self bump to celebrate the Medicom 12inch version news!! :guts:

They did make layered moving armor on the pelvis area. They should have used the same on other layered armor areas as well.. Anyways, this is great news!
Hopefully they will do the Berserker wolf armor after this!~

Head sculpt looks great! A must buy for me as well.
The layered armor is only articulated on upper legs, it seems... Too bad they didn't do that for the arms and knee armors.

I got mine as well.
The way they did the shoulder armor (attached to shoulder muscle) is not the best solution, but the head sculpt and the eye movement system is pretty nice.

QC issues ....
I guess it's another lottery, then. Mine is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. I'll see if I get lucky.

Eh? Matrix cutting machine? Really? I thought they are used in making keys? Is there a new advanced machine that uses 3D model as base??
Can you put a link to pic of the machine? I'm really curious!

Thanks for your comment Grail.
My longest run project so far..and It is now completed (although original plan had some more stuff, but oh well...)
Here are the pics!

Like last one, I made it look like commercial product for fun!~

With my previous Guts custom

Thanks for checking out!

This has been almost a year now!! :loony However actual work on this project was only about 3 months. Lazy me...
It's almost there thou. This will be my last WIP post before final post!

Painting, Color toning continues + some minor leather work

Painting, Color Toning, Light weathering (metallic edges) + Prep work for blood stain (Althou I'm not sure I'll do the blood stain paint.. I might just leave it for now)
Test fitting armor pieces

Head armor Painting, Color Toning, Light weathering (metallic edges) + Clear painted sheet for eye area. (and, of course, light up test)
Also started head painting.

Made a quick new sword grip, cape,  and base with Styrofoam and epoxy. Quick test pose shot!

Next post will be the final and various pose shots!
Thanks for following my very slow progress and Stay tuned!!~:hifive

Thanks for many encouraging comments! I've been crunching on my job away from my home, so I had a very little time to spend on this project. However, it still goes very slowly and I try to post progress whenever I have enough to make an update.

So, i made a pair of armored hands and finalized his head armor (even smaller now. left is the first original)

And cleaned up all metal parts and resin parts - and treated metal parts with gun-blue chemical to blacken it (same thing I did with my other Guts figure) This time, it was just a lot more metal parts!! and I had to disassemble them and treated them piece by piece. all 82 metal pieces total!!!

After that, I sprayed protective clear coating and airbrushed thin layer of clear blue. And assembled them back.

Resin parts are also airbrushed in 2 color layers + clear coating

After doing some more color matching passes, I'll start add weathering/metal scratching to add some flavor! :)
Again, I have no idea when the next update will happen, but It's still going (and going..)
