My Cobra Commander figure arrived last week from East Riding Miniatures, so time to start my army in earnest.
I've started assembling and painting but nothing finished so no pics yet.
What I will do though, is jot down some of my plans, in the hope of picking up some new or better ideas by way of feedback.
So, here we go:
Cobra Commander: Commander figure from East Riding Miniatures (already purchased)
Vipers: Defiance Games UAMC marines with the gasmasks filed down. Already started on two squads.
So long as they look ok side by side, Ghulam with head swaps as Viper officers:
F.A.N.G: 1:72 scale Commanche with the cockpit ripped out and replaced (got one, just needs a pilot)
Crimson Guard: Victoria miniatures dress uniform torso, GW Catachan legs, not sold on a source for the helmet, thinking maybe a converted space marine helmet?
'Blue Shirt' troopers: Victoria miniatures Victorian guard torso, GW Catachan legs, again not sure on a helmet, either based on a german or Cadian head. The torsos will need some work too, removing the extra strap and making the back look like a 'Y' harness.
Copperhead: Catachan legs, torso and arms, Cadian Valykrie pilot head
Destro and a few Iron Grenadiers: Conversions of the forgeworld Death Korp HQ
Zarana: Hasslefree miniatures Summer
Baroness: Hasslefree miniatures Dionne but with longer hair and glasses, and some armour plating.
Firefly: Infinity SAS
Zartan: Maybe a dark Angels hooded head, Cadian torso and catachan arms and legs? Not decided.
Nightstalkers: Maybe conversions of the old female dark eldar...I dont know, does anyone know any cool armoured female figures?
Alley Vipers: Hassasin Muyibs with converted helmets. Maybe grind off the backpacks and put shields on
Techno Vipers: Forgeworld Elysium drop troops torsos with Wargames Factory helmets and Catachan legs
Tele Vipers: The Elysium legs and arms with torsos I know I've seen but cant find now :/ ...and left over 'open helmet' heads from Defiance marines
Night Vipers: Infinity Zhanshis and Celestial Guard with head and weapon swaps
HEAT Vipers: based on these guys
Dreadnoks will of course be a mix of peices, as each one has a unique appearance.
HISS tanks: Those Shapeways ones (I'll get the link when I update this.)
A-10 jets: should be obvious.
Battle Balls: Scratchbuilt
Still havent decided on a Baron Bludd either...
Stormshadow: Reaper minis Ghost Dragon Ninja
So? are there any other figures I should be looking at before I throw money at this project?
