So here are some final pictures of my builds of the 4 Dragon figures. Very happy with how they turned out. Didn’t score in the competition I entered them for, but hey what do they know!!!
Well I’m going to call this complete just for the time being, as bit burnt out on these and want to move onto something else for now. The figures I’m happy with on the whole but the base could do with some more work to busy up the ground area.
Iron Man is wired in and there is a blue LED under Thor’s hammer. I have left the clear parts unpainted to better show the lighting, but it might need a little bit of blue just to show it up better.
The back wall was done with wallpaper meant for dollhouses (it is 1:12 scale rather than 1:9 but looks close enough) and the posters were downloaded and printed out. Went for some rival Marvel productions as well as some Stark posters. Was going for an alleyway look, which could do with some graffiti perhaps and maybe some drainpipes for the wall. The ground is currently bare and in time could do with some rubbish, detritus etc.
But for now it’s going to remain as it is. And I will come back to it at a later date.
Better pictures coming soon but for now here is a quick phone snap.
Been a good while since this got updated, so time to try and finish him off. Not too much to do, so some silver bits and pieces added where required and the shield got painted up (freehand). I decided to ink in the recessed lines to bring out the details on it. Just need to finish off the eyes (my most feared part of any figure after flesh tones) and add the decals to the mask.
So decide to make a start on Cap last night, who is the 4th character going into my Avengers scene (with Thor, Iron Man and Hulk). And actually got a huge way through him. Assembly (as with all these Dragon kits) was a breeze and there was just one small seam I wasn’t quite happy with and filled in before priming. Paints are Vallejo all hand painted. Looks a bit of a mess at the moment because just blocking in some colours and some messy washes on the gloves and boots. Just trying to get them to a ox-blood leather look.
