The Avengers John Steed mkII

Its took me far to long to get this guy finished. I think what killed the interest was find trying to find the most suitable figure to represent Purdy.

Heres my new John steed anyhow I really like this pose very 'Steed' the figure is from Wargames Foundry 2000AD range Max Normal. Given a shave to remove the Tache and simple repainted in Steed attire. He's a bit big but as a larger than life character and most likely the head of any cast I'll be fielding thats fine with me!

Big Whinge Blogger has been really annoying this week everything is updating on blog rolls really slowly often when posting something new it has only been showing the previous post for a few days before then updating.............

Incase you missed anything here is some links to whats been posted up this week. Work continues cleaning up the requiem stuff. I need to take some pics so i'll post them up on Wednesday.

You can see how much bigger he is here. Shame because the pose is perfect!

  8. I do like your choice of a Steed figure, As you say, the pose is perfect. I don't think he's too much overscale, either. I could live with all of your New Avengers figures,

  9. I've always like Max Normal and he does make the perfect Steed. Blogger has been a hassle this week

  10. Great paint Simon. Have seen some old episodes on DVD recently and that mini does fill the bill nicely.

    1. I gave up on the blog roll along time ago. I use the Reading list from the blogger.com home page far more reliable.

  13. He's a cool figure. I have some Lead Adventure miniatures for EOTD that are just that much bigger than Westwind. You quickly forget the difference when playing, it just makes it harder to keep the, in cover.

    1. Yeah I agree its why I decided to continue with him. Its not going to be often that there all going to be ranked up in play.

  14. Oh, he is large. Could always be a good thing, too, I suppose.

    1. Yeah I don't mind to much the excellent pose outweighs the difference in size.

  15. He does indeed make a suitable "Steed", I doubt the size difference will be noticed when he's in a game.

  16. He looks great, the flower is a nice touch on the model

  17. That's one fine gentleman! Great work Simon!
