Alpha Squad Covergirl

Taking a break from the Children of the Fields project I managed to finish off a partially started figure on the paint bench during this weeks morning paint sessions. Its the Gi Joe codename Covergirl.






Scarlett, Covergirl and Lady Jaye.

I went for the sunbow cartoon colour scheme. This character has had several versions mine, a red head with a tan sort of fatigues and brown jacket and then a later version with blonde hair but the same outfit as the second one. The redhead version is probably the most common one however I feel it looks far to like Scarlett and suspect that was why she went back to being blonde later on.

Still need to decide what to take on Saturday for the 7TV day. 30 ratings is not a lot really and will have to make some tough decisions on what I want to take out of all that I have painted. I will try and get as many pics as I can of the day and post them up next week.

  3. Terrific stuff, Simon. I was hoping to do a second “G.I. Joe” themed month this year, but seem to be badly running out of time. Good luck on Saturday for the 7TV Day. I take it I won’t be seeing you at either the Warhammer World “Kill Team” event or “Warlord Games” Open Day this weekend then ;-)

  4. Brilliant Simon! And all three together look fab! Have you seen the G. I. Joe Renegades cartoon? Highly recommended if you haven't - unfortunately only one season, but I was absolutely blown away by it.
