One of the things I love about Mythic Legions is how it brings me back to my childhood and memories of playing Dungeons and Dragons for hours on end. One of my favorite D&D books from this time was called "Legends and Lore." That book was filled with gods, demigods, and other characters from a variety of pantheons and mythologies. In the section for Celtic Myths, there was an entry for the "Master of the Wild Hunt." I remember loving that character design with his antlers and pack of wolves, and I knew that I wanted to make my Mythic Legions version of this character!
Note that there are two sets of pictures below - the first set use the head I have on this character currently, a custom piece by William Robert Post and Seba Dom (www.myactionfigurecustoms.com). The other pictures show the original look I did for this character
You can read this character's story on my Instagram page.
This custom's base is a Gorthokk shadow orc figure. I liked the black skin and his markings. I actually painted some additional markings on his body and limbs. His armor is from a Barbarian builder kit and the head is from a Baron Volligar figure. I dremeled a hole in each side of the head so that the antler attachments would snap in. They actually attach like any other Mythic Legions helmet attachment and, if I wanted to, I could swap them for other pieces. The skull on top of his head is from a McFarlane Toys' Dark Raider figure. It actually just snaps in place and is easily removable. The bare feet are a custom cast from Marcus Akin. I liked the idea of my hunter having his feet on the earth of the forest. I simply painted the feet to match the rest of his body.
For this figure's accessories, I turned to a number of places. The bow and arrows are from a Lord of the Rings' Haradrim Archer. The quiver is from an orc archer and the horn is from Boromir, both from that same line of LOTR figures. His sword is from the same McFarlane Dark Raider figure where I got the skull for his helmet. His loin piece and cape are both from a Masters of the Universe Prahvus. I repainted them both to have a foresty, almost leaf-like look. The cape just rests on his shoulder and it actually helps keep the figure balanced since it provides and extra point of contact for the toy. I actually had planned on attaching it with a small magnet, but it works just fine as is for my display.
Finally, the wolf that is by the figure's side is from the Hobbit line of 4" scale figures. Since this toy was meant to be large for that scale, it works well as a beastly wolf alongside my hunter. I painted his eyes a spectral green to match the description of the wild hunt's wolves from the D&D book that inspired this character. I initially intended on adding a whole bunch of wolves to the display, but ended up abandoning the idea solely for reasons of space! Still, I think he works perfectly fine even with his one canine companion.
The wolves he is pictured with are from a Hobbit set, and the two-headed creature is made by Chap-mei
