Thanks heaps, botwt and DarthMcBaine.
Like a lot of us no doubt, my favourite character in the Star Wars universe is Obi-Wan Kenobi, so when I saw the recent announcement of Sideshow's Mythos line
which includes a windswept-and-interesting, nomadic old Ben with interchangable Sir Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor head sculpts, I was immediately excited. Knowing that it might be a struggle to afford one of the pieces though, I thought that I would try to put together one of my own in 3.75" scale to tide me over.
* ROTS Obi-Wan Kenobi
(modified, for the head and lightsaber)
* Marvel Universe Bucky
(modified, for the entire body, sans head)
* TVC Zam Wesell
(for the rifle)
* GI Joe Resolute Alley Viper
(for the goggles)
* some household plastic
* some modelling clay
* some material
* some paint (Citadel "Elf Flesh", "Skull White", "Chaos Black", "Grave Yard Earth", "Space Wolves Gray", "Dark Flesh", "Scorched Brown", "Bleached Bone", "Goblin Green", "Blood Red", "Devlan Mud", "Mithril Silver")
While I am typically careful with avoiding material fraying, I purposefully tried to make it noticable here to give the outfit the desert-worn look that the statue appears with. I probably could have added the scorch marks on the sleeves but thought that it might detract a little from the overall piece here.
I'm certainly not the world's greatest painter, but much like with the recent Luke that I put together, I was amazed at how much better the Hasbro sculpt
looks with just a touch of paint.
