If you’ve seen the recent Marvel movies, such as Iron Man, Captain America, and the Avengers, you’re familiar with the adaptation of these comics for the “big screen.” I found the three figures above at Cold Wars and thought about putting together a group of “Avengers” for Victorian science fiction games. These figures are imported by Iron Wind Metals, which also carries the old Ral Partha figures.
This will be Black Widow, or Natasha Romanoff.
My Captain America figure is meant to be a cross between Captain America and Uncle Sam. I haven’t decided if I will add a shield, but I think I’ll ad one that is more Norman knight looking, rather than round.
This is Iron Man. I decided not to paint him red. I thought that brushed metal would be more “Victorian.”
These are the figures I haven’t chosen yet. I shouldn’t have trouble finding a figure with a bow and arrow. I’m not what figure to choose for Thor just yet; although, I’m more interested in the picture on the top right instead of the one in the top center. I could use a generic Viking, I guess, but I’ll keep looking until something jumps out at me. There is a Pulp figure of a big bruiser that I might get a second copy of in order to paint him greenish and call him “the Hulk.”
Stay tuned for the adventures of The Victorian Avengers!
