This is a original build of mine that I made several years ago but neglected to post it on this web page for some reason. I was relocating my dioramas and kits
into a larger room when I came across “the Hell Spawn” so I thought I'd do a brief write up on its construction as best as I can recall..
I'm a big fan of Ray Harryhausen's work and his
most iconic would be the skeleton fight with Jason and his men sequence at the conclusion of 1963's “Jason And The Argonauts”.
I managed to
find some very nice articulated skeleton figures (not sure where, eBay maybe) that stood about nine inches tall. Adding more of my own stuff, I CA glued several prehistoric shark teeth (yes, you read it right) to their heads as horns. After cutting one skeleton
in half so it seems to be emerging from the earth, I painted them with a flat light gray all over followed with two dilute washed of dark brown and black to bring out the detail and suggest great age, I did the same with the pseudo dinosaur skeleton 'pet'
which I also found on eBay.
Once I posed the figures, and secured their positions with CA glue, I added fighting gear, some of which were
from some weird key chains I purchased on eBay, where else?
The large skull in the background is of a Brachiosaurus from a display that I
managed to break when it hit the floor at 32ft per second squared.
