I will add a little back story to this character/frame later, but first I would like to explain the design a little.
Firstly this is the only figure using a pre-built frame in this line. It uses the red protoframe I posted on Monday. All the others in this sub-line use scratch built frames, ie. I built and decorated them at the same time, incorporating some armour elements to hold the frame together.
This also wasn't originally going to be another generic trooper, oh no, this was actually going to be the main vilain, Lord Erebus himself. Thes wings and bulky armour were intentionally meant to suggest this was a warrior who could take some serious punishment, but also needed extra protection. But I have since had a different idea for what I want to do for Erebus. Spoilers? Nah, I would prefer to not commit myself as I do have a tendency to change my plans as I build.
In the meantime, I have designed some additional weapons for this design, which are compatible with previous shadow troopers, and I will be presenting some updates soon.
