Jenny Everywhere – part 4 (Kaptain Kobold)

The painting of Jenny Everywhere is completed.

IMG_1361IMG_1362I confess to a small conceit; the outfit is based on one of mine, excepted I gave Jenny a sturdy jacket rather than the cardigan. And she has the scarf and goggles, of course:

I wasn’t sure what to do about her right hand. She appears to be holding a small device of some kind, which didn’t become apparent until she was mostly painted. I did consider converting it to something else – specifically a slice of toast, as a love of toast is one of the character’s defining features apparently – but I discovered that the hand is a little too fragile for even the small amount of cutting and filing such a change would entail at this stage. Yes, her arm fell off, and had to be glued back on.

In the end I just painted the small device in silver and left it at that. It can be whatever you want it to be.

I spray varnished her, and then chopped her off her base. As you can see the base is hollow; whilst you can opt to print a figure such that it is entirely solid, generally it’s not worth the effort. In this case it was a double-edged sword, as the figure’s being hollow is what made the arm difficult to modify, but it also meant that removing the base was a doddle.

So that’s me done for Forgotten Heroes, since I can’t seem myself doing another figure in the five days which remain of this month. Thank you to all those who have encouraged me and said nice things about my efforts. As I said at the outset, painting and modelling aren’t my thing at all, and I prefer gaming to actually generating the toys and scenery. But I have enjoyed putting these two figures together, and will almost certainly give it another go next year, if only because there was a completely stupid idea I had for this year which I’d love to implement.

    1. I’ll have you know that the third picture shows a 1:1 scale conversion of a Kaptain Kobold figure into one of the Lovely Rachel. And there’s a lot of paint goes into it; several layers in some places! πŸ™‚

      The best part of it is that it’s a reversible conversion, although to regain the original figure’s beardiness normally takes a week or so. Fortunately nothing has to be rebuilt using milliput πŸ˜€

      The Lovely Rachel is, of course, thrilled that I chose to have Jenny Everywhere cosplay her, and may return the favour one day – she’s already done Madam Fatal, of course, plus Rachel Duncan (from Orphan Black), Daenerys Targaryen and (unintentionally) Family Guy’s Lois Griffin.

      1:1 figures are a lot easier to paint when you’ve done the smaller stuff.

      1. Sadly cosplay is not something I’ve ever had the nerve to do myself, my brother in-law used to be in the “sealed knot” ECW society and rejoiced in walking around in his Cavalier costume at any chance he got (even going to the local fish and chips shop in full regalia!

        But then he just like to have people look at him I guess!

        My self , I an so dark haired and hairy (everywhere except on my head sadly!), that I think I would make a better “General Urko” than “Jenny Everywhere”.

        Cheers Roger.

  1. I’m really impressed with how your 3d print came out. I guess I’ll have to get in line to ask more about this technology πŸ˜‰

    Oh, and yay for cosplay!

    1. Thank you. If you look on my blog in February and March 2016 there are a few posts about my early adventures with our 3D printer, and I can answer any specific questions from there.

      The cosplay is a new thing for me (see the comment above for my few adventures in it), although it’s an easy extension from my adventures in alternative gender presentation. My wife and I started cosplaying to go to the local nerd convention in Sydney (Supanova) partially to embarrass our daughter, who also likes a bit of costume from time to time. We quite enjoy it, even if we are at the older end of the participant age range πŸ™‚
