PHANTOM BLOODLINE
by 2DARK2C
a big thanks to sgcaper for the base figure and "bloodline" as a concept.

Image
cover concept

I got started on my dio and accessories before my base figure arrived. like so many of my projects making A figure turned into so much more. on the heels of my cobra la project I had zero intention tto start another major dio….. I grabbed a larger than life ceramic skull from my yard to take pics with. then I spray painted it, and weathered really nicely. around that time I started looking at tons of comic and other online pics. I noticed the skull cave was more than just a big skull, so I started thinking of elevating it. that led to the playmobile pirate cave, and some expanding foam pulled the two together.
Image
Image
hero and devil
Image

I saw lots of images of the phantom sitting in a huge throne, then I got the idea to cut a throne on the backside of the dio.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

I started some drybrushing on the dio and at this point my base figure arrived. I had head, hands, and weapons ready to roll!
Image
Image

here I started building his gear and decided to use heatshrink for boot shafts and shirt cuffs. I also went with some gi joe boots

I made I big push and my next pics have the head painted, gear finalized, and ready for final paint. the spear didn't make the cut. the hood/balaclava is painted with the crusty violet. the purples never did it for me.
Image

the dio was so heavy and awkward I had my wife cut a board and help me secure it. I also did a lot of paintwork, and painted up a falcon for faka.
Image
Image
Image

more detail work on the dio. a couple places for faka to perch and a gnarly bone pile. I used white glue as texture om the ground and hotglue everywhere else.
Image
Image
Image

sgcaper gave me some ponters on washing, and I think they really paid off!
Image
Image

and some final detail work on my throne.

here are the shots I submitted to bossfight, along with the required front,back,left, right shots

Image

Image

Image

here is my brief write up of the story behind my concept.
post event civilization has crumbled into tribal wars
throughout the african continent. millions die during these
bloodiest of conflicts. the first felled by machete and hoe
the latest from starvation and disease.
control of the largest territory was seized by a haitian general.
he is also a voodoo priest who has brought the old gods
back with him to the land of their birth. he has cast off his name
and rank, known to his followers/worshipers only as MR HAND.

after the death of the 21st phantom and the destruction of wakanda?
and it's sworn protectors there is no one to stand in his way.
MR HAND has 2 fellow voodoo priests in his inner sanctum . they are
known only as MR BONES and MR MAN. together they are the 3 barons of blood.
MR BONES is seen mostly in animal form, as a small monkey never leaving
the side of MR HAND. when he so chooses MR BONES shows his true form. a
towering man of muscle and bones.
MR MAN is perhaps the scariest of the three. his small stature does little to
diminish his monstrous eyes. it is said that MR MAN is dead, but it is
more true to say MR MAN is death.
when mr hand's goons descended on the mountain encampment of survivors
there was little resistance. bengalla was in ruins. the royal family murdered
except for one. xxx the half brother of the prince.
he was 20 yrs old when the event rocked the land and the palace fell. now
in the small camp he was the elder, the protector.
when the troops found the camp it was dead of night. they killed any one who protested,
and imprisoned everyone else. for any who could not walk they bayoneted. old
and young killed like pigs.
xxx survived by running. his whole life running. away from bullies. away from
his family. away from himself. now he ran like a hunted rabbit through the
dense mountain night. when he could run no more he found himself at the base of
towering boulder. he crept into an open chasm for safety until morning.
inside the glowing yellow eyes froze him in place. an open hollow interior the
low growl seemed to come from every direction.


I had a ton of good pics to choose from, but these were my favorites. I really enjoyed it and am happy I got to play.
thanks for looking.

This is awesome.

Being allowed behind the scenes so to speak and all that went into making this was an honor.

Fantastic work on all of it.

I love that you took The Phantom and visually made him a phantom with a semi translucent body.

thanks pluv, but that was more of a chance thing then the plan. i came up with the idea to make the phantom before i had the figure in hand. once it arrived I was torn between a total repaint and leaving it "see through".

You clearly took your momentum from the Cobra La project and just kept steamrolling.

The figure is amazing. The playset is just phenomenal, no other way to put it. The parts are flawlessly blended together and the paintwork makes it all sing.

Is there a back side or interior to it?

Love this! The dio is a pretty elaborate accessory, but the finished figure definitely deserved it!

Nice stonework!

I wonder if bossfight will do exactly as you did, use a blank for the base. I’m hoping they do a superhero suit torso/arms/legs.

thanks spin doctor! i'm hoping get some more use from it in the future. I had a couple "thrones" in mind so i'll try to use this set.

I appreciate it turner! I have joecustoms to thank for all my dio skills! well and my wife is a faux finisher. so I can show her a pic and say how can I paint that, and usually she has a few ideas of how to get there.
