Alpha Squad Dusty

Dusty is another firm favourite. I always wanted the action figure as kid but never got him. I considered trying to convert him to carry the Famas that the action figure comes with but I would had to of purchased some modern French and done some serious chopping to get a decent looking one. So decided to stick with M16 he comes with :)

Tried to keep him as close to the comic artwork as I could. This is my tenth Joe and finish's off the first two packs.

Next up I am working on my Cobra Infantry these are taking a bit longer as I have 15 to do. I am painting them all in one batch and they are all now basecoated and shading washes as I write this post. Next up lots of highlighting!



Dusty is the fifth and final member of this set.
All my Joes so far.

  2. Terrific addition to an awesomely impressive "G.I. Joe" force, Simon. I especially like the group shot. Do you have enough for a game against PulpCitizen yet?

    1. Thanks mate. We have plenty of Joes and leadership for the Cobra to get some small games in. I just need to get some troopers done and we can start trying it out.

  3. A variety of uniforms and a bigger variety of camouflage patterns. Makes me wonder just where they are going to fight!

    Nice addition though, I am always happy to seem more of your painting.

    Will Dusty get Sandstorm as a companion? :)

    The whole crew looks fantastic together, I think you should be proud of them. :)

    1. Thanks mate. I am still looking. Its a bit tricky as the Crooked Dice Attack dog A is perfect size but would need to file down the colour and GS over it. I am still looking for potential off the shelf options at the minute.
