Jetboy vs. the Iron Cross!

This is a...well, not an illustration of a scene, but let's call it concept art for what I'd like to see go down in our White Wolf game. Which, as you can see, has gone rather steampunk on us. Well, that's what happens when you let a Son of Ether (aka Steampunk Scientist!) take charge, I guess.

Anyway, our gang is fighting Nazis in the Hollow Earth. The Iron Cross is one of those weird, honorable melancholy knight types that Germans sometimes seem able to manage. He's probably tragic, but we haven't seen enough of him to know yet. The other guy is more of Jetboy II--a stuntman who was loaned the legendary rocket pack in order to fight the villains and rescue Jetboy's kidnapped son (dude fought in WWII; he's old!).

One day, these two are going to get their showdown. In the meantime, they'll have to settle for near-misses and words traded across battlefields.

Coolness!! I thought your Jetboy was maybe the Rocketeer. I love the jet pack and Jetboy's reckless grin. Ahh, the Iron Cross sounds like an anime "honorable enemy"... sometimes they can be persuaded to help the good-guys if there is a common enemy or danger. :boing: Excellent dynamic scene.

Jetboy is a trademarked fictional character from an RPG game, but based on the Rocketeer? Oh yes! This *particular* "Jetboy" is more in the way of a guy who borrowed the costume from the real one. :)

Hee-hee! I love it. And you know the Rocketeer himself started by "borrowing" a prototype rocket pack from Doc Savage or someone similar. :XD: Nothing like a fine tradition.

As soon as I saw it, I said, 'YEAH! Kick that Nazi's heinie! No, wait, I shouldn't assume it's a Nazi..." *readreadread* "YEAH! Kick that Nazi's heinie!"

I love the scarf, I love the jetpacks. I love Flyboy's jacket. I love how the clothing pulls across them.

There's only one eensie little thing, and that's Iron Cross's right arm - it looks kinda detached at the elbow. But even with that, it's an AWESOME piece, and I love it to pieces!

Yeah, I had some trouble with his right arm. By the time I noticed it wasn't working out, I'd already finished a lot of the detail work on it. :P So I decided to be lazy. :D ...Though now I look at it again, I might be able to fix that at some point.
