Roughneck Joe© Mobile Infantry "Bug-Bait Joe©"
(... and Diorama)

Continuing the legacy Roughneck Joe, a project originally started back in 1997 shortly after
the movie Starship Troopers came out.  We have a series of dead Troopers: "Bug-Bait Joe"

Stay tuned for the Troop-de-jure!

Roughnecks : The Other White Meat
Trooper with belly wound, intestines spilling out over his arm as he tries to contain them, more flow out from beneath his armor.  He supports himself with his Morita, and dies upright, frozen in rigor.  Introducing: Lieutenant Lo-Maimed
"Brought to you by TrooperPX, continuing in the series of Starship Troopers 3-D Original Action Figures.  The world of Roughneck Joe featured in CustomCon5 expands and is proud to present the new series 'Bug-Bait Joe'.  An all new line of deceased Troopers, dispatched in all nastiness of ways by various Arachnid Warriors.  Rasczak's Roughnecks come across another squad of Troopers, decimated by Arachnid Forces."
"Extremely visceral.  Citizen Dave's work captures the grotesque body count in all it's detail.  From the intestines spilling out from the belly of one Trooper, to the acid-melted skeletal remains of another.  I found the squished eyeballs very realistic and almost nauseating.  Although wonderfully artistic, this one went 'over-the-edge' for me."
"For Trooper 'Lieutenant Lo-Maimed', worm fishing lures were used for both the large and small intestines.  Sewn into place then coated with Sobo glue for that sticky look.  More Sobo was used to build up the pool of blood the Trooper kneels in.  Three-up image from concept drawing to initial intestine placement.  Two images using xenon flash to test colors.  The dirt and dust was created with ground chalk pastels applied with alcohol."
