Small WiP update...Owen Pitt

From last post, I decided to use the Heroclix called Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy as the basis of Owen Z Pitt.  To make Drax look more like Pitt, I figured I needed to do some sculpting to convert.

I had done a really rough sketch of what I wanted Pitt to look like.  This was before I found the Drax figure, so I was happy he met all the basics, big dude, knife...

Still pretty rough
He's also too sexy for his shirt.

I needed to add an armored vest (with lots of ammo pouches), change that k-bar knife to a big Kukri, add either some hair or a helmet, and convert that sci-fi gun to the automatic shotgun.  A bit ambitious, given my very limited sculpting skills....Like I mentioned before, this mini was cheap as dirt, so I figured I have nothing to lose.  

So far, this is what I've come up with.  First off, let me apologize for the quality of the photo.  I've been working on this during my lunches at work, and all I had was my ancient Ipod for a camera.  However, I wanted to get a pic before he got too far along.

If you squint just right...

The kukri is huge, as all I did was use putty over the top of the existing one.  I may clip it off and do a new one, but I'll wait to decide.  I've added the basics of an armored vest, and that little box out front will eventually be some ammo pouches.  It's turning out better than I thought, but I still have time to muck it up...

More next time!  Hopefully I'll get time to do some painting this weekend.

Lastly, I wanted to mention that I started another blog!  Since I'm using this one to chronicle my Monster Hunter International setting, I thought I'd keep a separate one to keep track of my comic book inspired miniatures.

It's called supervike's super stuff so please visit and subscribe if it interests you!

Thanks for reading!

Hey, working on it during lunch hour at work is a pretty good idea. I can't really do that, people keep interrupting me.
