ATDE Ezra 'The Family' Medic


Well here's my first Across the Dead Earth character Ezra the medic from 'The Family' faction. Spent more time figuring out what to do with his coat as I didn't want to do it just a single colour and went for a camouflaged version in the end. It doesn't follow a particular type just the colours. I painted the lenses in the gas mask red as I felt this contrast nicely with the dark grey mask and made them stand out a bit more. 

Equipment wise he's all geared up for close range contact with a shotgun and a sword. I also really like the variety of pouches and other gear he has clipped onto his belt.

Next up I think will be Skylar.

    1. Thank you Bryan. I wanted it to look like it was old and a bit faded there's little holes sculpted in to the coat here and there. I felt new or bright camo wouldn't of worked properly

  16. I love the red lenses, I don't think I would have thought of doing them red yet it works so well. And that is definitely not a scalpel on his back!

    1. Thanks mate. Red lenses normally are just used at night normally but I like the look over trying to just do clear or the black flash lenses

  17. Another nice model (this is getting a bit repetitive :-) ! ) . I don't think he'll be seeing very clearly through the gas-mask though, whether it's night or day...

    1. Thanks Hugh. I'd probably have to agree but its part of his background that he never takes it off! But in game terms it prevents gas attacks.

    1. Thanks Yeah I suppose it does. I think the lenses are more Killzone to me.

  25. Makes me think of the album cover for one of the old "Carnivore" albums (early Peter Steele / Type O Negative). He'd fit right in on that one!
