Wargames Foundry

Crusader Miniatures
The Combat Company &
Relic Miniatures

All these seem decent places to check out, G1shark - good luck! I warn you, though - if you want to do historical stuff, don't expect pre-painted.

The first thing I'd do is lose the sword. Shredder never uses one in the new series IIRC. And second you should find a way to cover his face with something.

One theme issue I think you might have, is that Shredder's claw goes on the left hand but the figure would naturally look better with it on the right. It's not that big of a deal and if you can look past it it's no problem.
I reckon you're right about the sword - in the cartoon I know he has wielded the Sword of Tengu from time to time, and I'm considering giving him an option to start with it if you pay extra, but he doesn't use it enough to justify the mini holding one, IMO.

For the face, would obscuring the features with something like Green Stuff work, or would I need to file it down? (Looking at it, I think that the older Silver Samurai mini would probably work better for Shredder.)

Looking at the mini, I actually think that the left hand would work for the claw - rather than juat pointing it at his foe, as it would appear on the right hand, instead he'd have it poised to slash at his enemy! The question is whether it looks better with the claw added to his present hand or with a hand swap (probably with a clenched hand, most likely a Wolverine figure, so I have the claw (with one prong removed, obviously).

The rising sun on Silver Samurai's chest probably ought to be filed down. I won't get the gloves looking the way they do, but that's minor. The headdress isn't quite right, but I may leave that too - any suggestions on how to change it would be welcomed, though, as I'm not certain I will. In the end, I'm not going to get the armour perfect for Shredder, but I can do something good, I'm fairly sure. I'm considering bringing the present shoulder pads down a bit and adding a couple of fake nails on top of them to make the shoulder pads look like Shredder's - I know nails have been used for customs before. The big questions now are, where do I get the sash and armour spikes? Any help here would be massively appreciated.

Thanks again!

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

Hmm... not sure if @Soundwarp SG-1 has seen this thread yet, but his modding ability would actually be a massive help here. @Lord Pyre has also shown ability in that direction with the C3G Anniversary Release this year.

Anyone have any more ideas for Shredder?

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

If you're aiming for a really good looking Shredder, and not just an acceptable proxy (and don't mind putting in the work to get it), I'd start with one of the Cathar Spearmen. Their armor matches up pretty well, and most of the differences are matters of addition rather than subtraction. They might be a little on the small side for Shredder, but if you're using him with C3G stuff it doesn't really matter, Heroclix has zero understanding of scale anyway.

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

This Blade figure looks a lot like that first picture. It would need a new head though, and it's probably a little big for an anime guy.

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

Maybe a repaint of one of the Nightwing Heroclix? Replace his weapons with swords.

Sorry about replying to this so late, @Soundwarp SG-1 - I've had a virus recently which has given me sore eyes, so I've been trying to stay off the computer.

A Cathar is certainly an interesting idea - I'm not sure how much the pose would work, but that might just be because I don't have the Cathars yet. I'll need to pick them up - they look fairly cool, and it'll give me the opportunity to see how well they'd work for Shredder.

Anyone have any idea where to go for the armour spikes?

As for your query, laughing matter, Nightwing does sound like a good base, as mac122 said. Do you have any spare Master Set figures? If you do, then a repaint of Finn's sword looks good for that frontal one, I'd say.

Thanks for the help, everyone!

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

I'd like to suggest that this thread get a sticky - it's an exceptionally useful resource, but one that I can see getting buried and forgotten about otherwise.
Is there any specific process that needs to be used when requesting a sticky?

There's the Cerebrilith, from DnD Night Below:



Alot of Games Workshop's Tyranids would work as well, but they do need painting - I'll post any more possible Marro if I see them.

Anyone have any idea how this thread could get a sticky? I'll call out @McHotcakes , since he was the thread-starter.

Re: Figure Suggestion Thread

Moderators/Admins are the ones who Sticky threads. You'd want to talk to someone like @Dad_Scaper , @Xorlof , or @IAmBatman .

Your custom probably has too much Defense.
