if my squad so far is hawk,flint, and beachhead who should fill 2 more spots? one guy i have going is a paratrooper so that should narrow that spot down. the 5th wip i have was going to be duke, but i'm having trouble bringing him together.

they are all younger looking headsculpts so they may be these characters before they were ranking officers or even in gi joe. they are all bashes of mixmash parts on fortnite waists and legs. beachhead is unmasked but i have a masked head to paint and swap in if needed.

link just shows
"Mayday (RAH
There is currently no text in this page. You can search for this page title in other pages, or search the related logs, but you do not have permission to create this page."

is mayday a lady? all dudes squad so far.

i just used sam jacksons head from kong so i could use help for that character. plus the para guy. he is currently holding a fn minigun which is way too big to jump with, so sam might take it.

basically i'm trying to squeeze one last go out of my fortnite fodder before i list it up for sale. i'll probably include these figures so i'm making them with still usable fortnite parts from the waste down. i don't have a ton of it or even a pile of it. it's crazy how many lower torso pieces i have. hands are all staying in my fodder since they are about the fn part i use most.

Given you've already got Hawk, Flint, Duke, and Beachhead, maybe Falcon? You've got a lot of the officers/leader types on that team, Falcon fits that bill.

As for your paratrooper, how about Skydive. The leader of Sky Patrol fits with all the other officers in your team or maybe Ripcord or Airborne.

sky patrol airborn is almost a uniform match :)

now the sam jackson character is wearing bare arms and toting that fn mini gun. heavy duty is ok i guess , but is there another character? maybe not as big as roadblock or hd but still a heavy weapons specialist.

duke is back in play too so now 6 man squad.
hawk
flint
duke
beachhead
airborn
+1

So, you're talking the Robert Six Airborne?

Well there's Extreme's Freight or Rock n Roll (but I don't see Samuel portraying him ;-) )

still some parts that barley hold on. but they are together for the most part. only painted piece is dukes head which i had painted years ago for a jack reacher that i never finished. flynts shoulders were died i think, but maybe painted by someone else. young guns was just a name i grabbed on the fly since they all look younger than how i see them in my joeverse.

and unfiltered

it's a good thing i didn't have 6 of the beige camo jonesy waist/legs laying around so i was forced to use a few others. i could of went with realistic weapons or a rainbow of fn weapons, but i like the match up with the more cartoony proportions of the figures.

i'll add these to my crit thred at some point with some individual shots. i'm planning on some paint here and there too to tie the parts together a little better, but i tried to put parts together as close to a color match as i could.

hopefully these are all close enough likenesses everyone can tell who's who. beachhead unmasked is what i remember him looking like in the cartoon iirc. sam jackson doesn't look young so maybe he is the senior officer, or just squad leader. i was toying around with another squad name before and considered changing hawks real name to something harris, but now i could make the sam jackson characters real name calvin harris.

millionaire military contractor calvin harris (code name blackhawk) who funds/is funded by so many politicians secret agendas he can do pretty much whatever he wants. it's the late 70's /early 80's and he has selected a few young guns strait from the officer enlistment data base. he intends to train these soldiers to hunt terrorists and fugitives all over the world. focusing on the team rather than each soldier is their mantra, they are "Harris's Hawks".

they haven't earned their joe codenames yet, but later the joe "hawk" adopts that codename when his mentor calvin harris is kia. though really all their joe codenames were things harris started calling them. duke looked like a 50's kid off to the sock hop, so harris started singing "duke of earl" whenever he came around. flint was what was needed to start a fire and harris knew which buttons to push to set the young man off. airborn is pretty self explanatory the cadence song "i wanna be an airborn ranger" seemed to be humming in harris's head when this lunatic was around. and lastly beachhead not because he was a surfer or even liked the beach, but because of the nasty chaw he chewed and spit everywhere . beech nut turned to beech head and later beach head.

just a rambling thought of who and why :) when i first wanted to make a team called harris's hawks i wanted them to be 5 kids on bmx bikes same millionare, but crime fighting in one local not military at all.

Your Sam Jackson character looks like he could be Hardball, or ROC Repeater. Or if he is to be an older leader he could be Colonel Courage
