This one is loosely based off of this version:


All the Overkill parts used are from that one as well.  The rest is ROC Elite Viper and the elbow of a ROC Neo Viper.  The webgear is from POC Cyber Viper.

This is my second attempt as I screwed up the head and arm attachment on my last attempt.

I think the gun attachment is upside down in the pic.










Here's some with the gun attachment on properly:

Here's my latest two:

Here's my new take on Crosshairs.  I loved the new Lowlight body and I thought the Marauders one was perfect.  I only wish I had the Night Force version of Crosshairs' webgear and hat as the colors go better.  However, for now, this is what I have so it'll have to do until I finally can get my hands on the gear I wanted.









Thought I'd pose him with his vintage rifle as well just for fun, but I do prefer the one from Scarlett though.





Under his suit is nothing too inspiring though.  This is where I wish I had his NF webgear cause it's a darker green and I think would go better on this body.  I have his vintage belt as well, but since he has a knife on his leg already, it was kinda redundant so I gave him a backup sidearm.  I also have a scope for his leg but I sent it to Tofujesse to have it cast.


Don't know why they still called them Crimson Shadow Guard when he had no red on him, so I'll just call him a Shadow Guard.  Hope to be able to make a few more of these later if I get the parts.

Very simple.  DG CC with Python CG belt, rifle, backpack and head.  Logo is from Cobra Stickers.










Close up of logo.  I love the quality of Cobrastickers stickers.  It's thin enough so you can still get the logo to follow the creases of his uniform and still durable enough.

I'm finally happy with my Kamakura.  Thanks to Sgt Humpty for the final touch of painting the neck black for me.

It's the Retalliation Kamakura with DG SS's head.  The sash is from Red Ninja turned around and the backpack had the peg cut off and put onto the belt so it didn't sit so high.





Just for fun, here he is with his hood, but I don't think I'll be using the hood though.

Here's my Joe jungle ops sniper/infiltration team consisting of Cross Hair and Infra Red.  Infra Red was my entry in the G.I.Joe Reloaded project but I have made some changes to him since.  Basically, he stole a Jungle Viper suit to use for himself.  Now he can stay totally hidden while he spots for Cross Hair.

When I got this figure, the one thing I hated was the Hawk holster.  First off, it's pointless trying to conceal a holster if the strap goes across his chest.  Second, it was not functional.  Originally, I just gave him ROC Hawk's shoulder holster so it's hidden.  I finally decided to take the plunge and modify the holster so it's functional.




Some action shots:


Reaching for his Glock




Ready for action:


The pistol is not totally hidden, but you can imagine it could be in real life.



Now he can use his shotgun and still have his Glock on him.



Without his jacket:





He can fit his revolver in this holster as well:

I got this figure off another member on Hisstank a long time ago before I started painting.  Can't remember who the member was.  However, when I got the figure he broke apart.  I never really found the right glue to fix it until today when I found out we have this crazy strong glue at work.  Anyways, I think I will start doing more customs where I have to crack a torso. 

Anyways, with Cannonball, like I said, I got it off another forum member.  Originally, I didn't like how the head sat so I modified the head a bit more to get it to sit the way I like it.  If you remember trading this to me, add to this thread so you can get the credit due for this awesome custom.
