can't hide from us, scum, we're coimin' to get ya


Recommended Posts

I actually made this whole line-up 2 years ago, about the same time Low-Light and a few others I haven’t put up yet were made. As soon as I got the Anti-Venom set from TRU, the first annoyance that I had was that my V-Troopers were all new modern, imposing, fittingly weird sculpts and the team to fight them was… dated to say the least (I love RAH stuff, but I hate seeing the 2 lines mixed together, nothing about it works for me.) The AV task force’s colors were weird but I kinda dug it because the mission was limited and it distinguished them as a team.

 

So here they are:

Mutt, Charbroil, Buckshot, Duke, Stretcher, Lifeline, Barricade, Roadblock

The character selection, their functions all made perfect sense to me too except for the exclusion of an Officer to be the true leadership role even if he’s not the squad commander (NCO running the show? Yeah, right). And Stretcher and Lifeline being fused into the same bastardized figure just pissed me off then [and it still does] so I decided to justify the character integrity of both and made both members of the roster (makes sense to have more than 1 medic anyway given the mission they have to tackle).

the Officer's filecard:

 

BUCKSHOT

filename: Connelly, Randal

pri military specialty: infantry command

sec military specialty: urban operations

place of birth: Butte, Montana

rank: O-3 (Captain)

 

Raised by his uncle Ted since age 2, they spent every weekend possible hunting prime wildlife. From a young age he was taught to shoot and lived by the motto “if it moves and has more than two legs, kill it.” In his military career, that proved to be useful when he learned to adapt to combat against enemy forces right out of OCS when he was deployed to a hostile soviet country, and his many years of marksmanship practice proved him to be one of the best shots in the unit. That unit’s command sergeant major nicknamed him “Buckshot” and it stuck. Connelly’s close quarters urban Delta training before his third deployment in the regular Army made him ideal for Hawk to bring on board the Joe team as the best guy for the job of taking care of Cobra’s newest vile experiment.
