    So I thought I had an original idea but when I had done a search to see if anyone had done this yet 2 popped up. I found a digibash and a great looking one by Allew.
    So I decided to simplify mine a bit. I omitted the brown since the brown on the original was because it turned into a 357 Magnum. I decided to make the brown red since it looks so striking against the black and steel. I wanted to stay away from clashing so instead of Catgut being bright orange, I opted for the same red to keep it all uniform. His weapon combines with Catgut to form his Particle Blaster. The head is from a GI Joe Ice Cream Soldier. I apologize for the crap pics but my camera pooped the hammock.

    Nice, a great mix of the the different characters with that name. The 357 will always be the best.
    Your paint is out of this world. You're one of those guys that can way more with less. I'm so jealous.

    Now this is a nice re-use of warpath. I like how you did this, and that head is just spot on.

    Looks cool!

    I do feel sorry for Catgut in 'combined weapon' mode. I guess he has no problems with the vet taking his temperature if that's what he has to put up with all day :eek:

    Wow, simple but very effective! Colors look great too, good choice dropping the brown.

    Spoonman, you showed me a WIP preview, it looked very good at that point but the final product is very impressive, clean paintjob, liked how you made Catgut as well. I thought Treadshot's head was one of your sculpts, not recognizing it as coming from a GI JOE figure, I can see how well it works for him though!
