To add to my spam of the forum, I decided to document another one of my sculpts on here...the Mighty Thor. Also keeping with my hero project, and coincidentally bolstering the ranks of the Avengers. I have included a couple of scale shots as I notice there aren't many pics of the armatures out there. Notice how it scales with the non-heroic dolly and my usual scale model of Deano by Hasslefree Miniatures. For the first stage I am starting with the bottom of his tunic and I will build up from there to get the layers correct. He will have his hammer hanging loosely in his right hand and the left will be a clenched fist.
Haven't seen any of the other Marvel movies ... ummm, ever, but I am an *old* fan of the comics, so I could watch it without irritating my kids by asking who the heck people were and what was going on, 'cause it was dead obvious from looking at them even if they never mentioned, say, Volstagg's name once the whole time. I did like that no part of the nine worlds was racially monocultural, not even the elves. It was a rip-roaring fun movie, even if they gave the Asgardians Star Wars-like tech (shouldn't they have had cooler developed magic instead?). I always found Malekith a little ridiculous, but the movie and Christopher Eccleston made him magnificently scary. The visuals were nicely designed, I thought. Svartalfheim's sun looked convincingly black, for mindflayer and Spelljammer fans. I liked the Celtic knotwork force fields. All the Asgardians had great hair, fabulous hair, amazing hair, unbelievable hair. Their armor was cool too. The svartalfs had the creepiest helms, all serene faces and big dark eyes. I will say, it was one of the least English films set in England I have seen since Angela Lansbury did a Miss Marple, and this film didn't even have the excuse of being filmed in America. There were more British accents in Asgard than in London. Anyone who does not sit through the entire movie credits is a philistine anyway, but virtue is well rewarded here.
