*APOC 2100 emits deadly fumes. Always wear APOC-brand safety masks when operating your APOC 2100. APOC-brand safety masks sold separately."
This is easily my favorite sculpt of all the Qwik figures I have so far. It's hard to not like a guy swinging a chainsaw around in a game that's really supposed to be nonlethal.
The chainsaw was easy to make: The blade is a piece of plasticard with teeth filed into it. The engine box is just a cube of greenstuff with a couple disks of greenstuff (cut from cured roll) glued onto the sides. The handles are all brass rod, and the wrappings just twine wrapped repeatedly.
This figure departs a little bit from the look of the team; I think he looks more like he belongs to the Macellos. Perhaps I'll get another figure to fill in the position and make this guy another freelancer. I mean freesawyer.
