My second 1/6 kitbash for this year. Been more than 3 months since my last kitbash.
I’ve always wanted to make a psychologically awe-inspiring figure. Black assault suits, gas mask, robotic sounds of radio chatter. Got a lot of ideas after reading through Steve Crawford’s The SAS Encyclopedia (ISBN 0-9666771-0-2), as well as other sci-fi inspirations from movies and videogames. No backstories on the nature and purpose of “Black Ops” yet. Workin’ on it.
This figure marks the start of one of my first ambitious 1/6 project: teambash. Planning to bash at least another four figures, creating a complete assault team.
Difficult to pose this guy without the Y-stand. Even the stiff bootfeet won’t help. He’s quite top-heavy with the vest, nade’ launcher and rifle. The addition of the helmet and gas mask may also contribute to the upper weight slightly.
Currently working on his second squadmate: Assaulter. Any help on identifying the unknown strapless helmet (bought it from an action figure store in Kuala Lumpur 5 years ago) is much appreciated.
