Custom Action Figures: US ARMY Special Forces Combat Diver
Combat Diver Training enables the Special Forces to handle water-borne and underwater missions. The anonymity of the ocean allows for the execution of extremely clandestine operations that may never be publicly acknowledged or ever spoken of.

I entered this figure into the modern category at the Weekend of Heroes 2006 action figure contest and won first place just nearly managing to complete it in time. The look of a soldier just coming out of the surf was very striking and the perfect subject.

The cover shot of Special Operations Report featuring a pair of divers coming ashore
with weapons at the ready was all the inspiration I needed to put this figure together.

The base for this figure is made from acrylic gel medium, paint, and some sand and concrete to create the beach and the frothy ocean surf washing against it. I was worried it would not dry in time for the contest but the results turned out well. The glossy gel medium is transparent and looks very wet when applied. I built-up layers of gel with a little bit of color for the foam of the surf.
