One thing I received in my Joecustoms Secret Santa gift was a small bag of fodder. So I figured I'd try to put together a figure using only parts from that bag, and this guy is the result. The parts work together quite well, and he gets some nice basic military colours to offset his rather non-traditional garb. I like him. But the question is – who is he? Nothing has jumped out at me in terms of either code name or MOS, so any suggestions would be more than welcome.

Head – Beachhead
Arms – Nunchuk
Torso – Ozone
Waist – Ozone v2
Legs – Night Creeper

I get a demolition type vibe due to the grenades in the chest.
Then again the colors look like he could pass as late 80’s vehicle driver.

I can't not see beachhead so I think "airborne ranger beachhead" give him the parachute front pack and a folding submachine gun.

I still don't see the point in jumping out of a perfectly good aero-plane, sir.

Same here.
That's an awesome "normal" version of Lightfoot IMO. That's how I would use him.
Great paintjob!

That's a good suggestion. I've already done two customs figures for my Retaliator so I think I'll go with something else here.

I literally had that thought when putting the figure together - will this be able to work as anything but Beachhead? That's why I painted the balaclava two colours, to try to make it distinct.

I think the brown lines on the vest are giving me Kick Ass vibes, but the Grenades say assasin which takes me into Wanted territory. Either way an early 2000s comic anti-hero not named Deadpool.

Wow! He looks great! Those random parts came together well. He definitely works as a Sapper or demo guy of some sort. I could even see him as a German GSG type character. I'm actually not getting a Beachhead vibe from him, which is good.

Based upon a quick glance his codename / call sign is "Grange"..... he is of eastern European descent (specifically Polish , Lithuanian or Russian comes to mind. Polish first) and operates in that region of the world as a mercenary who specializes in mid sized regime change / government overthrow , infiltration , extreme weather survival and is a demolitions expert. He picked up skills in the foreign legion and among European organized crime. He eschews comfort and embraces the cold harsh life as it matches his upbringing and allows him to keep his "edge". He provides a pipeline of Vipers/ Cobra Soldiers from his region of the world to Cobra from the mercenaries he recruits for his Cobra commissioned jobs.

He needs a knife and a 9mm. Maybe 2. An uzi might be overkill but it wouldnt be out of the question. He'll definitely use both 9mm's at once in a firefight John Wick style.

He's the type of guy who would compete with Major Bludd or Firefly when a short list of names of regional task specific specialist was presented. He definitely thinks of himself as the current best and the 2 aforementioned are dinosaurs. He'd compete with Big Boa in reputation for providing adequately trained troops for the Cobra Legion but prides himself on better run training compounds that produce superior recruits.


Give him a platoon and a few light armored vehicles and he will take that Eastern European capital city for you quickly.



I miss ARAH.

Damn Suntzu, that's some high-octane creativity right there.
