Branching out

Postby Jimbobx » 03 Oct 2009 19:18

I was thinking of branching out from my 25th MOC's by starting a few small display groups of my favorite 25th figures.

1 x Iron Grenadier Destro & 5 x Iron Grenadiers
1 x Crimson Baroness & 5 Crimson Vipers
1 x Hooded Cobra Commander & 5 Vipers (chrome effect visors)

and 5 Alley Vipers but the leader figure for this group is not as obvious as the other groups.
Suggestions please.

I guess :firefly: could be a good urban commander for the Alley Vipers. I mean, he even dresses in urban camo.

A blue Firefly. Genius! Even the colours would go.
Cheers!

Firefly is a good choice but there is also an Alley Viper Commander coming next year with the Cobra Fury.

I had a look at the Alley Viper Commander. And although it makes more sense the colouring was a bit too drab when compared to the clashing orange and blues of the Alley Vipers.
Blue Firefly still in the lead...

that is just a prototype, so im hoping the final version looks better!
the cobra fury looks awesome!
the alley vipers are nice, but that was my least favorite version of the alley viper, bright orange with flat mask, the later snake mask was better.

I know. The shame is like ash in my mouth. Nasty bitter tasting ash.

Don't blame yourself, Jimbo. Maybe you didn't noticed it due to a subconscious doubt: If :firefly: leads the Alley Vipers, then who leads the BATs? Fortunately, there still are Mindbender or Overkill for that ;-)
