Rocksteady - Dreadnok

This is Rocksteady (the rhino) from the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon re-imagined as a Dreadnok from GI Joe. I figure he's some poor slob who was too dumb to make it in the Army and got booted out for being more of a danger to friendlies than the enemy. The 'Noks can always use more hired muscle, especially if they've (barely) passed heavy arms training.

Parts Recipe:
Ripper - Torso, Upper Arms, Belt, Thighs
Dusty - Lower Legs
Serpentor - Head
Tunnel Rat - Ammo Belt and Gun
Duke - Helmet
Hondo Ohnaka - Goggles

Bebop - Dreadnok

Bebop is a re-imagined version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles character from the cartoon, done as a Dreadnok instead of a mutant warthog. Dumb and scrawny, Bebop barely survived as a goon in the criminal underworld until he hooked up with the Dreadnoks. He was in the right place at the right time when the 'Noks needed another hired gun for a job, and has survived by pure dumb luck long enough to run with the gang full time.

Parts Recipe:
Ripcord - Head
Baroness - Glasses
Outback - Torso and Upper Arms
Storm Shadow - Legs and Feet
Torch - Vest
Tunnel Rat - Bandanna
Major Bludd - Bling
Mystique - Bling Skull

Shambling Sally

Sally's been through a lot, she's been parted out for planned customs more than once, but eventually found her way back together while I was on a zombie kick, so she gets to finally make her debut. Experimented with resculpting her jaw and mouth, dry brushing, painting a little gore, and coating. I spritzed her with Future Floor Wax to see how it would act as a sealant, and it's not too bad other than being too glossy for my taste.

Parts Recipe:
Marion Ravenwood - Base figure
Agent Helix - Head
Greeata - Hands

COBRA Infected

Just burning through fodder to keep busy, practice techniques, and make some Horde filler for any future zombie dioramas. A very simple design of a recently turned and intact roamer.

Parts Recipe:
Cobra Trooper - Base figure (or equivelant reused molds)
Shipwreck - Hands
Rex "The Doctor Lewis - Head
PoP Dastan - Scarf

Infected Scientist

Working on some more zombies and infected for my collection. Nothing too fancy, but it's always fun to come up with some new types of shamblers to roam around. This one is supposed to look like he's wearing a torn lab coat, and might be one of the egg-heads responsible for the outbreak! Used my COBRA blue for his lower half so he could fit in with a horde of COBRA infected if needed.

Parts Recipe:
Renegades Duke - Base Figure
Ric Olie - Head
POTC Zombie - Coat, forearms, and hands
