What are heroes without villains to oppose them? Less exciting, that's what! So here is Crosswire, an incredibly jacked brute powered by canisters of some sinister Brute Juice! He doesn't map directly on to any character I know, but combines elements of Bane, Mr. Hyde, some members of the Wrecking Crew, the Rhino, and (due to Drug Powers) maybe the bad robocop from Robocop 2. I tried to get some minor OSL coming off the Brute Juice canisters and drybrush his many bulgy veins Alien Goo green. He's a very big fellow, in the same weight class as the Clay Golem. (see http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/82054-77170-clay-golem-conversion-plus-59009-female-mad-scientist/ ) Lots and lots of muscles to highlight and wash. But what we all came here for is of course some wreckage and mayhem!
This weekend I managed to call my Crosswire conversion complete. For those interested, the WIP is under this forum (but my computer doesn't like the link adding function on the forum). I am happy with how my NMM is coming along. I could have brought this to the next level with more time but as he will be used as a game piece, I am happy to call him done. More pics and rambling on my blog. As a teaser, here is Whiplash vs Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk.
As part of my ongoing super hero project, I have been converting a few minis to represent some of the better known heroes and villains from the pages of comics and movies. I picked up Crosswire as a start for Whiplash, not realizing just how big he is. I ramble on it extensively on my blog, these couple of pics show how he scales with 28mm truescale figs as shown by Deano by Hasslefree Miniatures. In short, he is giant. I started by sculpting the Arc Reactor on his chest yesterday and today I added on the straps and power cables. As I see the bottom wires attached I need to go in and clean up the edge where I have a gap on the Arc Reactor base plate. Comments and advice appreciated.
