The Mist



The Mist actually likes the fact that you didn't vote for him in my Custom Heroclix poll. That will make it so much sweeter when he has you killed...

Again, all props to Dale. I was assuming he would just try a cut down on a Ghost or Invisible Woman. (Rarity? Bah! I am an Artiste, do not speak to me of your bourgeois trading schemes...) Just thinking of a mixed-media figure is hard enough. But actually pulling it off, that deserves recognition. (For the first time in all of these customs, I almost wish I played so I had an excuse to get one. And that is not even for the Metal Men.)

Of course, there should be a "just" invisible Rookie figure, a partial Experienced, while the full Mon... Mist is Veteran.

(So did Scipio ask you to work the vote backwards, or are you just doing the figures that excite you most?)

That is an absolute thing of beauty. I look forward to "whupping its' ass"...

or as I call it:

Mondays.

Scipio said...

Oh, you kill me, Devon!
Monday, I'll return the favor...

Scipio said...

David, you know the Metal Men customers are still for sale...

and the Chemo giant from Wizkids comes out next month...

David, thanks for the kind words! But you know, you don't have to play the game to enjoy these. One of my regular customers gets them just to display them (which I like, because he doesn't care what dial I put 'em on)!

If you wanted to make another, super-luxe version, perhaps you could use Aerogel for some of the mist.

A company called United Nuclear is selling small pieces for $40 or $125 each.

Oh, and if you used Aerogel, you'd probably get a bunch of free publicity from technology geek sites like BoingBoing, Slashdot, and Make. AeroGel is kind of a tech geek favorite these days.

The main problem might be in figuring out how to cut and shape it.

Well golly gee thats fine craftsmanship.

This is da bomb!!! Now get a Nash one!!!

totaltoyz said...

Thanks for the tip on AeroGel. Maybe I'll get some and make my first $100 custom Clix!! (Maybe Midnight from Kingdom Come.)

hey, I voted for The Mist!

well done...

Scipio said...

Then, you, Methane, shall be allowed to live.

I hope you and the other 24 people get along....

k26dp said...

I voted for The Mist too... don't kill me.

Great job. What dial did you end up using? I'm guessing... The Vanisher?

Scipio said...

Nope; Rookie Cloak, mm046
