Corp. Custom Thread
'Sup, I'm one of Sarcanis' friends that meant to make an account like years ago but never did. I made some Nightshade Security customs recently and wanted some critique so I thought this was the place to go. I really only play Corp. guys, usually a Corp Commander and however many more points the game is in Corp. Response, so I thought it would be nice to have a little more variety in my specialized army.
These point spreads are kind of wonky because openoffice sucks so if somethings hard to understand just ask me and I'll try to clarify.
First figure is the Corp. Attack Chopper.
This double-based motorcycle provides some much needed mobility to the Corp. forces. I got the inspiration for this figure from a model Sarcanis bought at the local hobby shop.

This beat up old 40k Marine bike seemed like a perfect fit for my Corp team and for Guardians in general. I concocted a few stories about cheap Nightshade officials and a leaky fuel tank and my first custom was born. The idea is that the motorcycles Nightshade bought for its Corp forces are defective and that they leak massive amounts of fuel at certain points, as shown by the power Gas Leak. Nitro Boost shows the "good side" of this structural integrity, it provides an incredible burst of speed through a rush of fuel that allows the heavy bike to break through any monsters grasp and run through anything short of a brick wall.
Gamewise my idea was that I could use its first click to carry a Corp Commander or another heavy attacker and then tear around the map, harassing figures with Snap Shot and its heavy guns. My biggest fear about this figure is that it's undercosted but I ended up with a lot of 75 point figures lol and thought with his three hourglass clicks he could fit into 65 points.
Second figure is a rare version of the IMO underwhelming REV Field Agent named the Corp. Elite Agent.
They look like Solid Snake and this is pretty much taking it to the next level. One of my biggest gripes with the original Field Agents is that they are way too specialized and unless you are really lucky with your Martial Artist they tend to die quickly. This tries to answer those problems by having a bit of everything. You can use his continuous power, Concentrated Fire, which is just Grenade or you can use Accuracy and blast away stuff one at a time. He eventually clicks into CQC (Ferocity) and Sprint (Acceleration), giving him another chance to finish off any monsters that his grenade launcher could not. His last click is supposed to represent his last stand, a barrage of grenade explosions. The model itself will likely be a modded Field Agent, with brown hair, headband and cigarette, carrying a large grenade launcher.
I have four more figures, including a Raiden to go along with my Snake and a REV of alien powersuits based off of Haloclix Spartans, that I will probably post either later tonight or tomorrow morning. Till then, remember to comment/critique my figures and vote in the poll!
I went with the chopper, since the other one is kind of an amalgram of Corp Response (REV) & Field Agent (REV) at first blush. Since HrC only had 1 official double-based fig (Nessie from NM), another double-baser would be cool to see.

Just added IWF100 Corp. Elite Agent to HorrorClix Online.
Not that this really has anything to do with anything, but an important difference between Concentrated Fire and Grenade is that Grenade is a dependent power, while Concentrated Fire is static (continuous, even). This means that it would apply to a ranged combat attack made as a free action.
