Arise Serpentor, Arise

I finished a conversion of a Heroclix Attuma figure into the Cobra villain Serpentor.


The figure is pretty big, more toward 32mm




The original Attuma with a green stuff cloak added. Then the cowl and serpents.


More to come,

The Best Defense, The Battle of Springfield

I had a chance to game some Pulp 80s with friends and we decided to do a game based off of GI Joes discovery and invasion of the secret Cobra town in the US, Springfield.

28mm ARBCO Star freighter


I bought the freighter ship from Table Top Combat:

http://ttcombat.com/collections/transport/products/cargo-ship

A great piece of kit and perfect for representing the fated ARBCO Star from the GI Joe comics of the 80s.

The kit assembled










I wanted the waterline on the model to be higher so I added a 2 inch layer of foam for a hill base.



Traced and cut out

Sanded and shaped

Coated with caulk

Primed

Base coats


Weathered
