Yay, new plastic battlebox! Time to make a plastic Kodiak.
First, a tiny repose on the legs. I cut off the toe of the left leg and greenstuffed it back on at an angle, then shaved down the post that went into the hip so I could rotate the leg back a bit. Now, it'll look like my Kodiak is stepping forward. I plan to pose the arms like it's in mid-stride, lumbering forward menacingly.
Next, I worked on the shoulders to make them look like the metal Kodiak's. A bit of a pain in the butt, and I'm despairing because the rivets aren't all exactly the same size, but I think I'll live with it. I'm pretty pleased with the badge on the one shoulder; it came out well for my first-ever greenstuff mold job.
Next, the head (still a work in progress). When I conceptualized this a while back, I considered using the metal head, but it's WAY too big. So, with that not being an option I compared heads and found the Juggernaut head to be similar in style. I widened the "jaw" a bit/evened it out in the back, and obviously gave it the signature crewcut/funny hat. I still need to put the rivets on that and generally clean it up once the putty cures. I'm also thinking of shaving down the front of the chin a bit to bring it more into line with the metal Kodiak head.
Beyond that, I'm in a bit of a holding pattern until the plasticard I ordered comes in. That'll be used to make the huge plates on the backs of the fists, as well as the additional stuff on its loincloth plate. I'm also racking my brain for a (not emotionally crippling) way to do a ton of spikes. I'd like to put the spikes on the knees, and I'll need to make some more for the backs of the fists. Maybe I'll do some more greenstuff molding for that. I'd love to hear any suggestions you have for that, or for anything else.
