Sky Captain Drusilla and Ayanami Rei WiP


Sky Captain Drusilla is the Kickstarter only commander of the Iron Empire's Jet Girls.  I wanted to maintain the IE color scheme but lean towards a Rocketeer style look.  To this end I went with raw leather flight harness, gloves, boots, and mask/cap.

 I really like the retro sci-fi style of this model.

While painting I opted for a darker sepia color for shading but think I'll go back to a lighter shade for the rest of the set as the sepia tended more into brown than into yellow and is a bit too much contrast.

I may go back and add some powder work around the flight stem and on the base but I'd like to do the unit all together for that.  I'm also still pondering adding some faction/unit markings to the flight harness and/or mask.
Here is Drusilla next to a 1/4 scale Ayanami Rei.  Rei is coming along a bit more slowly than I had anticipated mostly due to additional drying and layers needed to get even coverage over large areas.  She's close but it will be a couple more days before she can join the rest of the cast in the Living Room display case.

We've been a bit amok collecting Anime Figure Models and have to rotate them to get good displays.  At the moment we're running small Evangelion, Madoka Magika, Steins Gate, Lucky Star, and K-ON displays.  We usually have 4 full curios running but for this move we're just running one curio and two built in half curios.  I'd like to get Soul Eater up but those are still lost in the big room of boxes.

  1. Hey Swelter!
    Drusilla looks great. Is she about as tall as an assault marine? Liking the scheme you've picked for her.

    1. Thanks Greg! I don't have a modern assault marine handy but I think she is about the same height but more slender. I'll post a picture of a line up with some other figures.

    2. Awesome! I'm always a big fan of scale shots when new mini's comes out. Helps everyone figure out if they could be excellent stand ins for other models (such as battle sisters seraphim).

    3. Awesome! I'm a fan of those too... although I seem to have forgotten that lately...oops! Anyway .. a shot is up. I'll get some more relevant comparisons up as I find them. The unpacking thing ... I never know what exactly is in the next box!
