3.75" Scale Aragorn By PsychoPirate

3.75" Scale Aragorn By PsychoPirate


Jay Cochran - August 10, 2014
This weeks Marvelous Custom was done by PsychoPirate who created a custom 3.75" Aragorn horse.

Here is how he describes the making of it:

"Ever since Valkyrie was teased before the MI transition, I knew I had to give her a flying horse to ride. Technically, Aragorn is not a Pegasus - he is a genetically modified horse. Dane Whitman's uncle, the first Black Knight, was a villain who was also an expert at genetic manipulation. He genetically modified a horse to have wings and to fly. The criminal Black Knight's horse (the original flying horse) mutated further into Hellhorse and became the mount of Deathknight. I guess there's just no reforming an evil horse.

Dane Whitman used the process to create a second flying horse. Black Knight left Aragorn in the care of Valkyrie while he moved temporarily to live in the Middle Ages, but the companionship of Aragorn and Valkyrie ended up being permanent.

Aragorn's recipe is simple - the World Peacekeepers brown horse, repainted (available at Big Lots now in my area) and Angel wings. These are the 6-pack Angel wings repainted to match the horse.

Duplicolor took care of the brown, but I added shadings and some grays because no horse is truly white - and this is a warhorse, not a show horse.

There are a few other horse options out there. The articulation is just so-so on this one. The rear legs are not jointed below the hip and the tail is immovable hard plastic. The bridle and saddle are also cheap feeling. But it is inexpensive! There is also a Prince of Persia black horse - it is better, but will cost more. The Raiders of the Lost Ark horse is already white, but is undersized for this figure IMO."

Fantastic. What is the recipe?

Sorry for the delay. Modified Mr. Freeze body and MU Apocalypse hands and head. BAF Sentinel tentacles and metallic paint.

Got another version of this guy on the electronic bay if you'd like one :)

Korg body:

Does anyone know if the Korg Body could be boiled and popped apart at the abdomen section?

I would like to remove his armor without damaging it in any way but it doesn't seem possible unless I can pop him apart.

Nice ironmen!

I hade some Iron Man Scrap-Parts in my fodder bin, so I cobbled them together and gave them complete repaints. Use dry brushing over a black base coat to create a weathered look. IMG_7200_zpsynsvghdj.jpgThor-El - 2016-02-20 @ 4:34 pm

A couple days ago I received a glorious shipment of customs from Pilkster to add to the ranks of my MU display...
