Originally teased as a work in progress sculpt at the tail end of last month, the incredible “Grinning Death Ball” (originally the Sludgie Mad Ball) from Chris Dondin and Mutant Vinyl Hardcore has just received it’s first paint test ahead of it’s debut release soon! Designed and sculpted by Chris based on MVH’s original Sludge Demon – along with a little nod to the DX in the form of a skull located on the back – the piece, around the same scale as the original Madball figures at 3″ wide, has been cast up in a similar latex, coming painted in layers of subtle earthy sprays and hand brushed detailing. With just a few alterations needed to the paint app before production ensues, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the Grinning Death Balls first release over the coming weeks…
