I was surprised we didn’t get a figure that used a fully painted version of the Hagnon head for the Mythic Legions' Wasteland wave. The “wasteland” concept seemed like a great way to give us a zombie-like character. Anyway, I had an extra Hagnon head in my fodder bins, so I thought it would be fun to design my own Wasteland-inspired figure. To that end, I used ONLY Mythic Legions parts on this and I gave him 3 accessories, just like most of the Mythic figures have. My goal was to create a design that actually could be made for the line (admittedly, I am ignoring the need for certain items to be made together based on the configuration of the molds at the factory). This is my design for a Wastelands Ravager.
This figure was a lot of fun to create. Because he is meant to be a scavenger, I wanted his armor to be pieced together and mismatched. I also wanted it to look old and worn, effects that I love to paint on Mythic Legions’ armor. I didn’t want this to be an actual zombie, but rather a horribly thin human, his skin destroyed by the harsh wastes where he lives. Besides the Hagnon head (which is such a wonderful sculpt and you realize just how good it is once you get some paint on it), I also used some bone limbs I had in my bins. I painted them all with numerous shades to get a ravaged skin look. I decided to paint his eyes all white since I felt like any actual “eyes” would look comical on this head. I figured that this character is blind from the aftermath of whatever destroyed his homeland, so the all-white eyes work here! His armor is painted to work as a whole for this character, but still look cobbled together. I gave him some belts as well as a fur piece from Bromden, along with three weapons. I wanted all those weapons to have bone elements to them as if he had also scavenged and assembled those from the remains of his victims. I did actually remember to take pics of the progress on this figure and I will post those soon so you can see the step-by-step build on this, but for now, here are the finished shots! Ultimately, I really love how this came out and it was lots of fun to restrict myself to only using Mythic parts to come up with this design.
