Modern Soldier

After building my MRLS I realised that I didn't have a soldier to go with it. Modern solider customs seem to be few and far between so I decided to make my own. This soldier is in a standard camo outfit, with a protective helmet and a flak jacket to protect his body. Over this he wears a set of webbing, from which hang a series of pouches, a backpack, and a bed roll.

This figure started life as a biker, wearing a heavy vest and a helmet. I painted both of these grey, and then painted a camo pattern over them. After this was dry I added the webbing using a series of millput parts, which was then painted. After the whole lot was varnished it was moved to a custom made body featuring a farmer's boots, solder's arms and a dark green body. I also painted laces on the boots.
