INFINITY IKARI COMPANY: Authorized Bounty Hunter
Authorized Bounty Hunter
Wandering the wasteland of the Human Edge with his beautiful lover, this Authorized Bounty Hunter is a hired gun whose itinerant lifestyle belies his combat skill and professionalism. Likely an outcast of a former career in black ops, it appears that his body has undergone full cybernetic replacement after some horrific trauma. There is a certain pathos that he can never again feel his lovers embrace on his skin during this lifetime, but her dedication to their love goes far beyond the skin deep. Who knows, perhaps one day they will be able to afford a new lhost for him. In the meantime, they will put their considerable combat acumen to good use (to the highest bidder) in order to earn enough coin to fulfil their dreams.
This guy was converted from the Hsien from Operation Red Veil. I tried to capture the essence of the limited edition ABH, which in turn had a bit of an Appleseed's Biareos vibe about it. The conversion utilised the standard parts of the Hsien, with the back fins carved to become "rabbit ears," along with greenstuff sculpted as required. After I built the head it felt necessary to bulk out the shoulders a bit so that the head didn't seem to large. Thus I added plastic shoulder guards scavenged from my old 40k Imperial guard bits box. I also added pouches and a knife, sourced from IG as well as a Ghulam backpack, in order to kit up the model to pay homage to both the studio ABH as well as Briareos. The paint scheme harks back to the original limited edition ABH and blends it to my Ikari Company colours. Painting this guy felt like I am finally getting used to light source painting on 3d models. Can you guess what number he rolled on the Booty L1 table?

Looks cool head is from ?? it is just Hsien + ears ??
other thing you can weather any surfaces and this would add a lot to this blue coat or just texture it or made a color transicion to green ot other one like purple - or user complementary to blue to create a interesting shadows (dark brownish Yellow - like snake bite leather just almost black )
Head is made from Hsien head and back fins, plus some green stuff. :-)
Where is his right hand from?
i would bet Wh40k Imperial Guards they got symilar ones ans pouches looks familiar to :)
Hsien. Cut off sword and then cut and repositioned the hand.
Yep, pouches are from Imperial Guard
Amazing conversion and a very effective ABH!
+3 ARM and HMG because he's so cool he can make two rolls
Lol yep he rolled a 6 (ARM +4). A little joke I added to his armour markings.
Sangarn is right, I think he deserves a second roll since big guy deserves a big gun! Still if gun can proxy for spitfire or red fury.
Booty is so random rule though, how can you build tactics around the ABH profile?
You can't in Ikari, in dashat you can take 4 of them (12 pts profile), and use two in the fireteam with the best roll and two other will stay as defence
if I were you I would play him as a wu ming HMG, you can make a nice haris with him and a AHD brawler or a 3rd Wu ming with pzf
INFINITY IKARI COMPANY: Wardriver
When this little lady came out I have to say I wasn't that interested in getting her as I didn't want to get Operation Cold Front. Then I got into Ikari Co and her artwork image was part of the defining Ikari Co colour scheme, so I just had to have her. I had a lot of trouble trying to get her on the second hand market for a decent price but have now got my mitts on her and am very happy lol! I painted like the Ikari Co artwork pic and am doubly pleased by the results, especially as no one seems to have done this yet (that I could find on the net anyways), including the studio version. I Really like the face plate effect most (cant bring myself to use gloss varnish on it though...)
To be honest, I know want to paint an Ikari army with the color scheme you're using. It just looks great, and I'm looking forward to seeing more! I especially like the work on the sweat-shirt, it gives a more casual/civilian aspect to the model.
Thanks. I copied the Ikari Co artwork from the Uprising Book
