28mm 1980s Pulp, SAW Viper and Outback Conversions.

I got a couple more conversion pieces done for my 1980s Pulp forces.

First, Outback for the Joes. He was the Joe survival specialist and although I did not have the figure as a kid, he is still very cool.

My Outback started as a MaxiMini Jungle trooper, same pack that I used to convert a Croc Master and Roadblock from. Here I added a beard, straps etc with green stuff. A pretty basic conversion.

SAW Viper was more work:

Again another figure I did not own but I did read the comic where he was introduced. Known for as the first Cobra soldier to kill Joes, he quickly gained infamy in the Joe lore.

I did the head first, based off a Mad Robot plain head, that I added the details too.

I did the head separate so I could just add it to a body later.

The body I used was a Khurasan 28mm scifi heavy gunner. I lobbed off the head, filed off the back pack, and green stuffed the vest.

The backpack is a tooled up piece of bits from an old tamiya model.

The ammo belt was made with green stuff.


So I decided to do a little rumble in the park for some pictures of the painted models.

The SAW Viper lays down suppressive fire while the Vipers advance.

The shell casings are snipped brass rod.

Outback and Shockwave take cover behind a dumpster.

Selective fire!

Only a few left!

More to come,


  1. These are both awesome. I have my own Outback to paint up

  2. Thanks! You have a Hasslefree conversion for Outback right?

  3. Absolutely loving the "Action Force" love!!! (thats what GI Joe was in the uk originally)
