The Black Ice Independent Security Contractors. Mando Mercs for the present day. You got a job, a cause in need of warriors? These guys will take up any impossible job......for the right price of course. I built this after watching 'The Men Who Stare Goats.' Weird movie but I love the scene with the mercs arguing over whose turn it is to pump the gas while taking part in a raging fire-fight. I like to imagine these highly skilled and utterly deadly guys bickering over trivial things like who gets to pick where they eat while effortlessly laying waste to some self appointed dictator's private army. The vehicle was inspired by numerous armored rigs from several genres. Specifically the armored SUvs from 'District 9' (another movie I didn't care for but found inspiration in.) and Shadow Comp.'s technicals from COD MW 3.
About this creation


The Team. ready for action , always for hire. Notice that one of the mercs (the sniper) has averted his face so as to remain anonymous.)



Close up of reinforced ramming grill with recessed headlights. (This was the last thing seen by many terrorists, if you see this coming at you, RUN!)



Side View.



The Gunner's POV.



Other side view.



Artistic angle.

I'm really very pleased with how this came out. This is very unusual for me, most of the time I come close to scrapping the entire thing two minutes after completion.
I am (almost) unresevedly satisfied with this, I think I really achieved the armored look I was shooting for. I especially like the look of the 'Buck Stopper' on the front and the low profile windsheild.

As always Comments and criticisms are welcomed.
