Hey guys, so one character I really liked the look of in Solo was Enfys Nest

I especially love the helmet

Was at Toys r us (Canada) the other day and spotted the Hasbro 1:6 figure on sale for $10 and figured why not take a punt at modding it

Looking the figure it actually has pretty good detail in the mold

So first of all lets change that flat pose. As Sideshow and Hot Toys collectors know, its all about the pose. I quite liked the image on the box of her fist up (shows off the gauntlet armour) so I'll add that into the mix.

Legs also had to be cut and repositioned

The spear is too short out of the box, so we'll extend that

For her hair I cut up a fluffy soft-toy dog, much to my daughters disgust. No, it wasn't hers. Lol

Fur would be from a $3 pillow

The helmet mold is great, except for the front spikes, so replacing those

Time to weather

Replaced the plastic front cloth sections with actual cloth folded over cardboard so they can be bent to simulate movement of the cloth

The belt mold is ok, just needs some love

Accessories are getting there

The fins on the gauntlets are a dull silver out of the box, these need to be white with green and red detail.

I first painted them silver so that once finished I could scratch through the white to reveal the silver underneath

The body gets a matt black base coat

Then colour

Weathering brings it to life

Fantastic work! A lighter background would have made the figure pop out a bit more, I think, the hreat work on the coat does get a bit lost.

Wow, that is awesome, so inspiring! Amazing what you can do with a decent sculpt and some good painting skills. What sort of putty did u use on the re-sculpted joints?

Fantastic work. I did the same thing with a Boba Fett figure.

Love the side by side comparison with the original.

Excellent work. The result needs no explanation as it is extremely obvious, which is gratifying. My only suggestion would be to increase the weathering on the fabric sections. When compared to the real life images, the fabric is too bright and clean still, especially the bright white bars.

Thanks! And a good suggestion. (y)
