28mm Snow Cat and 1980s Pulp Conversions
Being 1980s Pulp, part of what makes the genre exciting is exotic locations. If you are going to have a winter or Arctic showdown, you need some suitably outfitted characters and equipment.
First, the Joes.
I of course needed Snow Job, he was a pretty cool action figure that came with skis.
Looking about I found my starting point at Artizan Miniatures with their WW2 Devils Brigade Command team. These guys are in parkas that look a lot like what the Joes wore in the Cartoon series and some are close to character already. The skis and extras set are from Brigade Games.
I decided I could also make Iceberg from this 4 man pack.
Step by step I added green stuff to convert the figures.
Goggles and strap for Snow Job
A machine pistol, straps, and backpack added to Iceberg.
Skis added to a backpack made from a plastic sprue piece.
The duo primed.
And painted waiting for base work.
Next up was transportation, so a 3D model of a Snow Cat was printed.
The toy is really cool, my cousin had it growing up, and sometime I will need to make a Frostbite conversion to pilot.
Now on to some action shots!
Snow Job and Iceberg arrive in Greenland to investigate reported Cobra activity.
A back view of the figures.
They meet Quick Kick, another conversion, who is also equipped for winter combat or at least a commercial.
The Baronness arrives in winter attire flanked by SNAKEs.
But the Joes have a Snow Cat to back them up.
