|Strontium Dogs close in on notorious experimental scientist Zon and his alien bodyguards.|
The Torso is from the now out of production Wargames Foundry 2000AD range. Although the range as a whole is larger than my preferred scale (~32mm as opposed to 28mm), By virtue of not having a head, The Torso just about fits in visually along with the smaller Citadel figures.
I went with a classic rust-brown and green colour combination (although I could equally have chosen red and white). The sculpt (I think by Tim Prow) is nicely executed with chunky, well defined details.
The second Strontium Dog comes from a desire to have a bigger, bulkier figure mutant. He's based on a Warlord Games Boromite from Gates of Antares. I added some shoulder pads and the Strontium Dog badge, but he's otherwise unmodified.
I tried to stick with comic-book colours for his paintjob. Painting the skin a flesh tone (as opposed to grey or purple) helps to suggest that he's a mutant rather than an alien.
Both of these new Stronts are taller than Citadel's diminutive Johnny Alpha, but I think they're both within acceptable visual limits.

I'm hoping to work on another couple of Stronts over the next week, so watch this space for more!
