Hail Hydra!


Hydra is a generic villainous organization in Marvel comics, most notable for their cool logo and questionable uniform choices. I came across a picture of them the other day and wondered if I could construct a Hydra soldier out of the plastic bits I had laying around. Well, I think the answer is a definite yes.

The body and right arm are from the Stargrave Crew set. The left arm is from the Stargrave Troopers. The head comes from the Frostgrave Knights.

I gave the figure a pretty quick paint job - I mean, he's listed in the credits as 'Hydra Soldier #1', so he doesn't really rate my top work. It is fun, sometimes, to paint in really bright, comic style colours.

I didn't make this figure for any specific project, and perhaps this is as far as I will take it... still, it's good to know I can whip up some generic bad-guys if I have to!
