One unsual character class that I wanted to add to my Mythic Legions collection was a Tinker. My son plays a dwarf tinker in one of his D&D campaigns, so I decided to recreate that character and add onto my dwarven legions! This figure uses a custom cast head from JimPansen Creations.
I also wanted Ragnar to have a robotic companion that is the product of his tinkering. I gave his automaton a very "Star Wars droid" sounding name, L3-NE, which is also a subtle nod to the Lenny character from "Of Mice and Men". I imagine the automaton as very strong, but also innocent and awkward, which is very similar to his literary namesake.
You can read this character's story on my Instagram page.
This custom figure is a combination of many parts from a variety of different toy lines. The torso, faulds, and loin came from a Mythic Legions Knight Builder Kit, while the arms and legs are from a Silver Dwarf Legion Builder. The head is a custom from JimPansen Creations. It features a custom paint job that I requested from him specifically for this figure.
As far as accessories go, this one comes with quite a few! His goggles are from a GI Joe Sigma 6 figure (I am not sure which one, since that accessory came with multiple figures in that line and these goggles were actually in my fodder bin). His belt is also from Sigma 6. His coat (which has had the arms cut off) is from a Marvel Legends Gambit. The gun in his hand is from an animated Pirates of the Caribbean figure while the large blunderbus gun on his back is from a Palisades' Muppets Swedish Chef. The wrench in his belt is also from the Muppets' line, specifically the Kitchen Playset. The hammer was a random piece that I had lying around, but it was originally from a Hermie the Dentist figure from Rudolph and the Island of Misfit Toys. Finally, his crazy steampunk glove is from a Hellboy Rasputin figure from Mezco.
For the Tinker's robotic companion, I wanted something that looked old and worn and somewhat cobbled together. I ended up using a Cherno Alpha figure from NECA's Pacific Rim line. I discovered that the figure's normal "bucket" head could be popped off, revealing this smaller looking head beneath it. I drilled some holes in the head, added some plastic discs for the eyes, and gave the body a bit more of a scuffed up paint job to create my Tinker's automaton companion.
