    Hi All,

    I've always thought that the weapons HasTak gave Classics Scourge were wimpy at best, and well . . . should have been on par with Cyclonus'. The short and skinny of it: god damn it, Scourge should have been a target master not a "tuck-the-guns-in-the-wings" master. So I set out tonight to rectify that problem.

    I looked at the Battle in Space set and with quick realization (and joy that I bought two sets cause they were cheap at the time) that with a couple cuts I could have a propper Scourge; by shortening the barrel of the Nightstick that came with that set. The first cut was the crease circled in red in the last attachment. the second was the crease where the red arrow is pointing.

    It's a whip because I've never been good at painting, but once the glue dries, I feel this will be a good place to get my toes wet and learn the fine art of dry brushing.

    All comments and critisism are welcome.

    Hope you enjoy looking . . .

    A spare Nightstick is a good stand-in for Fracas, but I don't really think you needed to make those cuts. The barrel kind of helped give the figure stability since it wasn't very well balanced.

    True, that the figure needs to be leaned over a little bit. But then again, there isn't a whole lot of times that I've ever had my target master's displayed with their weapons not in alt mode
