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.
