This is Cross Hair. Originally created as a sniper for Spy Troops way back in 2004, this was one of the few Joes I actually owned. He was also my favorite: basic, no-nonesense military design, removable gear, and he looked like Father Mulcahy from M*A*S*H. What more could you ask for?

Well, an update for one. But that never happened... So, when I got into customizing a few years back, good ol' CH was one of the first ones I wanted to make. In fact, his look helped to inspire the uniforms on the rest of my Joes! Unfortunately, making the figure was harder than planning it. I decided to sculpt the upper arms... And found my skills in that area sorely lacking. That delayed the figure by a year while I worked up my skizzels. Next came the head. I was tempted to use the basic Pitt Commando head, but eventually decided on Carnor Jax from Star Wars. Not wanting to customize said head, I decided to cast it... and further contributed to the figure's year-long cast time as I taught myself casting. Wasn't fun.

So, after a year of working and assembling the parts... I managed to do the paint in just a few sittings; probably less than a week. A little dissapointing. And so here he is: Cross Hair.

Recipie:

SW Carnor Jax-- Head (cast)
RoC Pitt Commando-- Torso, lower legs, vest, hat, skirt
25th Night Creeper-- Upper arms (sculpted)
25th Beach Head-- Lower arms, thighs

And that's it. Please comment. and have a groovy week.

Hrothmeir out.
