When I got the Archangel, I thought it was awesome model. The head crest and the way it sat kind of bugged me, however, so I thought a little bodging was in order.
As some of my previous bodges would indicate, I’m a fan of Final Fantasy. When presented with an eyeless dragon, there was absolutely no question what the concept of this bodge was going to be.
This Bodge was done back in mid 2013, and took about two months to complete.
Regrettably, I didn’t take photos of the earlier process, but basically this was what was done to it:
• Head crown thing now added to the chest to bulk it up a bit.
• Left arm was moved to outside of leg, makes him less lazy lookin’.
• Head tilted up a bit, so he’s roaring at the enemy (or blastin’ them with megaflare)
• New horns to replace the old. Bits taken from a Reaper…
The wings are kept in place with some rare earth magnets. Thankfully, I didn’t accidentally glue them in backwards.
Don’t laugh. It happened once with a Khadoran jack, and the bodge ended less than ideally. I remember the solution involving a sock, and the basement floor.
Dagger turned out to be more work than anticipated. When searching for figs to use as a base, I didn’t look close enough, and chose one that didn’t have legs, per se. A bit of an “oh crap” moment. This was the one:
That was, like, an HOUR long extraction from a tree that I didn’t expect. A piece of that tree became Eiko’s horn. The lower legs that she has now, I think, belong to a Kayazy Eliminator (she had new legs herself, so she wasn’t using them anyway)…
