I was nearly done with the original gangsta’s from the Impact Armor crew (Rise of Cobra) when it hit me: There were more figures with this armor!
So I dug around to find parts that would match Sandstorm, surprisingly easy really, and made a new one that was going to get the complete workover.
- Head – 25th Firefly
- Torso/Upper Arms/Upper Legs – ROC Ripcord
- Lower Legs – ROC Snake Eyes
Sandstorm was fun because I knew fuckall about him. I sort of thought that he could be a sniper or some shit for the Impact Armor Team when they’re all assaulty and missiony. I liked the idea that he’d have some desert camo and a bigass sniper rifle from Marauder’s.
[EDIT] I see now that he’s an MP, so I might try to work that angle instead. But I do really like the idea of a ‘Perimeter Control Specialist’ on covert ops being a sniper. I mean, other than ninjas, what else would you have?
