Guys.
It may be because it's currently 1am and I have been awake since 3 last night working, but, but, I had an idea.

Basically, its a Harlequin strike force lead by an avatar of the Laughing God, based off the Deceiver.
I got the idea after seeing this piece:

And after going on a FF6 kick and getting to the ending boss, this guy:

Now, the idea is to start off by using the deceiver as a base.

And doing some work:

So adding on some wings, redoing his head-tentacle things into something normal (maybe fashioning pointed ears), and painting it all up in the typical blueish pastels and designs of the harlequins.

Sorry for the rather poor drawing, my shop-fu is weak.

Thoughts?

I've seen a fantastic version of this somewhere, but I can't find it now.


This one is from coolminiornot.

I prefer plastic. It's easier to convert and work with.

It'll likely come down to size. The plastic wings are much larger, but they will require more sculpting than the metals to add on. The metals may be too small, depending on how big the Deceiver is. I don't want him to be floating on tiny baby wings like a cherub.

Looks pretty awesome so far. I might have gone a different route and tried sculpting a hood like in the cmon pic that darkmark posted, but that would be a lot harder. Have you decided which wings to use?

Socurge wings. The the ones I have now are far too large. The model is too thing to use them.

He reminds me of captain america.

I think it looks good, though I get a feeling he wasn't basecoated, but I may be wrong of course...

Is it cause of the blue? Because I don't see it.
