I started with a US Agent base. I hated the cuffed boots and gloves and wanted to give him a more modern Avengers look. So he needed soldier style boots and gloves. A leg holster was attached to his left leg. Parts were added using sculpting processes.
Next was priming the figure and repaining it from head to toe. He started out as base US Agent but got a flat paint job so that he is not shiny like the factory figure is. The figure was then repainted using Citadel and Model Masters paints. Several layers were applied to make it look the way he does now. Dry brushing and washes were done over top of the paints and Gundam markers were used to make the sculpt pop more. After the paint was completed he was sealed using Citadel sealer so there should not be any issues with paint rub.
So what is a soldier without weapons and just a shield? Boring. So he is now equipped with several. US Agent now has a handgun that is removable from his leg holster. The gun is all black and is perfect for a back up sidearm. He needed heavier firepower and was given a H&K MP-5 SD submachine gun with silencer for stealth missions. But when you need to make sure that every Hydra Agent is dead nothing beats a Colt M-4 .223 caliber rifle.
The rifle has a mini magnet added to it so that it can be stored on US Agent's back when not in use. The shield also has a mini magnet that is attached to the bottom end to do the same. A mini magnet was placed into the figure's back and sculpted over, sealing the factory figure hole.
Another magnet was added to the right glove sculpt so that the shield can be held on his arm without straps. The shield's bottom side was repainted a dark gray and was sealed.
