More COBRA Infected! These are, for those of you who didn't see the first batch, mashups of COBRA soldiers from GI Joe with the Zombies from Left4Dead. It's a fun project to keep me busy while I plan out more complicated figures, and a nice way to use up fodder that might not otherwise be utilized. I gave myself a rough "no buying new parts for zombies" rule for my first two batches, but after 10 or so I might need to replenish some parts. I don't think this batch is dynamic as the first, mainly because I think the L4D1 designs were more visually interesting than the L4D2 designs (and this batch is mostly L4D2 infected).
Ah, The Witch! One of the few truly terrifying moments in gaming, for me a least, was about the first fifty times I encountered her in L4D. Wonderfully scary character and sound design on her, and I think I captured a lot of that here. She doesn't have anything to mark her as associated with COBRA, but I went with the wrapped bandages with the thought that perhaps she's gotten some medical aid before her mutations fully took effect. Really happy with the final results on this one!
