So I bought the Crimson Command Copter JoeCon exclusive from ebay. While waiting for it to arrive it dawned on me that it needed to have a pilot. So, I threw this guy together. Overall it was a very simple recipe with minimal paint. I wanted him to be as playable as possible. He is based on wild weasel obviously with CG lower arms and legs and a ninja ku head. The helmet is from a para-viper. All I had to paint were the thigh pads neck and helmet. The Crimson guard parts are a perfect match to wild weasel. So although the execution is simple he purveys what I wanted. An elite chopper pilot of the Crimson Strike Team.
Code Name: Sidewinder
Crimson Strike Pilot
Sidewinder pilots the Crimson Command Chopper, providing team insertion and air support for the crimson strike team. A former Crimson Guard field agent, he desired a less covert position, one that allowed for a higher personal body count. Sidewinder is an expert in all rotary-wing aircraft, specializing in air to ground assault. He delights in the superior fire-power offered him by Cobra’s attack choppers and mows down enemy infantry with impunity.

He is badass. I've been doing something similar for my Crimson Hiss Drivers. It all starts looking a little silly when its nothing but normal siegies driving everything.
