Today's customs for your viewing pleasure...

Recommended Posts

The two late 80's missile specialists.

 

Backblast is the anti-air and Salvo the anti-ground armor. The customs are clearly based on each characters version 1 look. I changed up Salvo's weapons in the realistic direction to a couple of Javelin missiles. I would like to get one more for him to have over his shoulder though. I also think I need to repaint his shirt. Backblast's weapon is a Bbi stinger missile that I put two more stinger tubes on top of to mimic his original but a bit more realistic. The extra rockets are actually made from dowels and apoxy sculpt.

 

As always, let me know what you think and what you think I should change.

Looking good, although maybe you could track down one of those "paint-markers" - I've never used them, but I imagine you'd get a cleaner and more professional look. I've never used them myself, but I've heard good things about 'em.

they look good. the only thing i could see is repainting the fronts of the shirts. i know writing stuff with a paint brush is insanely tough! what does salvo's say?

A paint marker would be awesome, but I haven't been able to find a yellow one. I'm going to try using a toothpick. I didn't give Backblast the 'bandolier' (ammo belt) because I didn't think a guy already carrying a huge rocket launcher would be carrying ammo for a gun he didn't have...leave that to the rest of the fireteam.

 

Thanks for the comments, keep 'em coming.

If I might suggest a 10/0 Liner brush. You should be able to find one for less than $5 at any reasonable well stocked hobby shop. Also, you may consider drytransfer lettering for the flatter surfaces. That can be had in the crafts department at Wal Mart. Good luck!
