Only committing thread necromancy because the site prompted me to do so. Otherwise I was planning to start a fresh thread for this.
So here’s where I’m at on things:
I have everything I need to create a Ron Pearlman figure. I plan to do him as a Raider. and will likely do him up as a custom figure, likely with some custom rules even (I want to do a skill called “War, War never changes.” to give some kind of bonus to nearby allies.)
So, what I’m working with: There’s a company I bought a few items from recently who has models you build yourself. Basically, you have legs, torso, arms, legs, and weapons, and it’s all done so you can mix and match pieces to create the models you want. They have a head set based off of Sons of Anarchy, so I picked up items to build Ron Pearlman. Basically stick him in a leather jacket and paint him up like a raider. Considering the weapons I have available, I intend to give him a shotgun simply because I figure that will “Look” the part, along with a knife on his hip. I’m thinking about doing the ground up so it looks like the remnants of a sidewalk or street. Then I have a little radio that’s very similar to the ones in Fallout 4 that I was thinking I would place on the base (Maybe on some form of stand, but not sure exactly what yet.)
Now, the reason I decided to post is to see what people think?
What weapon(s) do you see as most appropriate for the model (I have a set of the weapons sold by Modiphius, I also have a sniper rifle, shotguns, pistols, baseball bats, uzies, rifles, and some other weapon choices available through other vendors)
Ideas for how to do the base would be VERY welcome as that’s the area I am most indecisive. I know I want to do the radio as a nod to the fact that he’s narrated much of the game series (Only one he hasn’t narrated was Brotherhood of Steel if I remember correctly.) I’ve even thought about adding a xenomorph head to the base since I have quite a few of those from another game I collect. It’s crossed my mind to add a copy of the Grognak: Jungle of the Bat Babies to the base as a Hellboy reference of sorts, or even going so far as to add an actual Hellboy comic cover to the base. But all of that said, only the Radio is something I feel really strongly about including. (Maybe just the radio among a patch of rocky ground? Keep it simple?)
Thoughts? Comments? Ideas? I’d love some feedback.
