'Water Feature' from StephenS: King of Atlantis

For your viewing pleasure may I present to you his his royal highness, the King of Atlantis, known to his mates and most of the known world as Aquaman!

Since his creation in 1941, our intrepid hero has been a prominent feature of many a watery comic book story. I have painted him as he is sculpted, in his current comic book uniform, which is thankfully sans the underwear on the outside look that has fortunately gone out of vogue.

The model is a resin 28 mm from Knight Models. He is not for use in any game I play, I just used to like reading Aquaman comics and thought the bonus round was a great excuse to try one of the miniatures from Knight Models that I have been eyeing for some time now. It is very thin and delicate, but fortunately free of any blemishes. Knight Models makes some beautiful figures, but some of the joints and weapons are so thin and fragile that it's a wonder they manage to ship any models in one piece.
