    When I got the Elite 70mm Blood Warrior kit last month I was really excited about the figure but didn't like the feathers that came with the kit so I decided to make my own. I proceeded to cut over 50 feathers for the figure.

    The feathers on the rear train were cut and wrapped with red thread and the tips were painted with W&N oil black. The other 28 feathers are brown

    The base is a Ken Thomas base.

    The feathers give's alot more to the figure. Amazing what you have done.
    It's a figure to be very proud off, and it's a showstopper.

    Hello, Mario.
    Your work is amazing.
    I liked the feel of a material of the wing very much.
    Everything is wonderful including a base.
    I congratulate completion.

    spectacular
    I'm not generally a fan of using real materials they never seem in scale but you've certainly pulled it off here
