Death Dealer is a 1973 fantasy painting by American artist Frank Frazetta. It depicts a menacing armor-clad warrior with a horned helmet, whose facial features are obscured by shadow, atop a horse, holding a bloody axe and shield. The image eventually led to spin-offs of varying merchandise, including subsequent paintings of the warrior, novels, statues, a comic book published by Image Comics, and related D&D adventures, published by Goodman Games.
Frazetta later painted several other Death Dealer paintings, including ones to be used as covers for the comic book series.



Here's the original painting that the kit is based upon.



The kit's box-top has a removable sleeve that leaves you with a 'suitable for framing' reproduction of Frazetta's artwork. Al

The sculptor did a nice job of reproducing the details of the original painting, it's very well done.

Goodbye PB, Hello Flickr. Tried posting this before but, the pictures were blocked soon after, due to a change in PB's policy regarding third party sharing.













Despite a few bumps in the road, I thoroughly enjoyed this build and would recommend this kit to anyone with a little experience. By no means perfect, I think it does do justice to Frazetta's original artwork. Al
