WarZone 1st Edition Cybertronic Chasseur Hero with LMG: TG9823PB (Neglected Model May ’18)

Warzone 1st Edition Cybertronic Chasseur Hero with LMG Conversion

This one is the last of the WarZone models I’ll be doing for the time being. Challenges like Neglected Model months are good motivation for me to poke around in the depths of old cases to see what can be dug out and revived with a lesser or greater amount of work. As this month winds down, I’ve gotten to the last of the WarZone models I picked out of the case, and I’ll save my next delve there for the next Neglected Model month. Plenty of other stuff on the table I want to clear out that’s been there for ages, anyway! As you can see, he’s a member of the nWo Wolfpac, and is specifically named Nash, after Big Kev.

This figure is a conversion of the original WarZone 1e Cybertronic Hero model (yeah, they only had one!) Originally armed with a shotgun, he’s had a bullpup LMG grafted and built around where the shotgun used to be, and his left arm was taken from a Chasseur Sergeant model, in order to completely change the “shape” of the model. Head is chopped off a metal 40k Techmarine, and the backpack is made up of some 1:35 scale military parts. Wires are just copper wire taken from that little handful of a bundle that I “found” in high school metalwork all those years ago… which I still have today whenever I need bendy wire that’s not guitar wire (I’d use guitar wire on him these days, but …1990’s conversion!

Here’s the original base model.

Again, this model is still available from Prince August. Well, the base model is, anyway. You can see how much chopping has been involved – this is how we used to do conversions in the old days before plastic kits became the norm. With metal and a saw. And yes, he’s very “flat” like a real mid-1990’s figure, though that’s largely due to the pose of the base figure and limited parts to draw from that fit Cybertronic in the rather chunky WarZone style if I didn’t want him to look like a Space Marine.

The Neglected May ’18 WarZone contingent.

And finally alongside the other Neglected WarZone models I’ve finished over this (last) month: 1st Edition Dark Legion Technomancer, Agent Nick Michaels, Cybertronic Chasseur Hero with LMG Conversion, 1.5 Cybertronic Chasseur, Atilla III Cuirassier with HMG Conversion, Capitol Sea Lion Hero and Imperial Blood Berets HMG Specialist. Not exactly a cohesive force or anything, but bloody nice to have all of these figures finally completed.

Yet another of my old 1st edition WarZone models here, and yet again – finally completed – and with some modern touches and a modern base added. We have a Cybertronic Atilla III Cuirassier with a small conversion – the barrel end of his Assault rifle have been replaced with the multi-barrels of the SSW4200P HMG, cut off a Chasseur HMG gunner. As with about half of these old figures I’ve been showing and finishing so far, this one is still available from Prince August’s website.

Once again we have the Black and White of the nWo, as well as some other references to The Man Called Sting, who’s pre-Wolfpac outfit of the day fit in with my black-clad Cybertronic. (No, he’s not nWo Stong/Black Scorpion). Newer touches have included, erm, finishing the right shoulder and both legs, rebasing onto a “tech” 40mm, and of course the addition of the Iron Warriors Icon and the Legion’s “IV” badge to the left pauldron.

The nWo logo on the right Pauldron is original nWo-era freehand. Iron Warriors have no qualms about using War Servitors or fully robotic versions of AI, so while I’m not 100% what I can use this guy as in 40k, I’m sure I can find a unit entry that will work for him just fine.
