This is now the third version of this character I've done. This one is a bit different, though. I haven't abandoned the back story for the previous Joe-based versions - I just re-imagined the character as an Iron Grenadier. In keeping with my actual military background, IG Sgt Humpty is a mortarman and forward observer. He is assigned as the Fire Direction Controller for Castle Destro. He sees to the day-to-day training of the mortar crews, as well as the pre-plotting of all defensive targets around the Castle grounds. In combat, Sgt Humpty accompanies the IG leadership into the fight to coordinate on-the-spot fire support, while leaving the actual supervision of the mortars to his hand-picked team leaders.
Parts: Head (Sgt Humpty), Entire figure (25th Anniversary Iron Grenadier), Load Bearing Equipment (25th Anniversary Short Fuze), M1911 Pistol (RoC Breaker), Holster (PoC Night Fox), M41A Pulse Rifle (Marauder, Inc.).
Wish I was there!
