Alpha Squad, Grunt, Zap and Greenshirts

A very similar group finished off this week. I had started these guy off ages ago but split the trousers and top/helmet different greens. But it didn't work out so I ended up repainting the trousers to match tops. The first character is Grunt a main character fighting alongside Hawk and various other Joes in the early days. Only being distinguished from Green shirts (Normal Joe infantry) by the red collar on his top.

All these have separate backpacks which I've pinned. The males all have separate heads and Zap's bazooka arm is also separate.




 Again Zap is another character from the very early comics and also has a similar uniform to the others. Again the red collar distinguishes himself from regular Greenshirts.



 The final three are just regular Greenshirts infantry 2 male and a single female. These are only occasionally seen in the comics but as you can imagine are overshadowed by the bigger Joe Personalities.




All five completed and of course Grunt and Zap can stand in for regular Greenshirts to.

  5. Always good to see the regular grunts, for any game. These look like very good sculpts especially with your paint-jobs.
