Viper

Share

Took a stab at the Viper, the backbone of Cobra's infantry. There have been a few modernizations in official media like the comics and all, but I really wanted to give them a pro look. Gave the helmet a slight redesign to be modular, I might revisit the idea that all the various specialty Vipers wear the same basic helmet frame just with more job appropriate attachments.


The original filecard describes their rifle as a do it all gun including grenade launcher, but that wasn't very well depicted on the toy's actual rifle. I wanted do a mix of east and west, so I roughly designed the grenade launcher after the GP-25, thought seeing that bolted under a real modern looking AR would just be a fresh look.


I also did some alt colors, based on some of my favorite previous version or other troopers. The basic bitch Vipers should be able to operate beside all their fancier brothers in various theaters of war, ya know?
