Korg, leader of a poorly advertised revolution

Breakout star of Thor: Ragnarok, it's Korg!

"Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Korg. I'm kind of like the leader in here. I'm made of rocks, as you can see, but don't let that intimidate you. You don't need to be afraid, unless you're made of scissors! Just a little Rock, Paper, Scissors joke for you."

Watch this if you haven't seen Thor Ragnarok:

Then again, it's probably worth a watch even if you have seen the film, just to remind yourself of how much fun Korg was...

Recently, in order to be caught up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe so that we could watch Black Panther in the cinema, my wife and I chugged through a few of the films that we'd missed, and were pleasantly surprised to find that they were good fun, and inspired me to paint something up (expect another imminent post featuring something else from a Marvel movie)

He's a wacky rock guy, there's not a lot else to say really. The rest of my superhero project stuff is mostly street scale (Spider-man and his villains fighting rather than intergalactic space war) so lord knows if I'll ever use him for anything, but hey, sometimes you just want to paint something because you like it...

Here he is with a dodgily painted Thor to give you an idea of how big he is:


11 vs -69 = +80 (yes, I sold some more miniatures so the Tally continues to look incredibly uneven, but that Hellboy Kickstarter Mantic have on the go currently isn't going to pay for itself...)
