S.H.I.E.L.D. Team 6: Alien and Mutant Threats

After the events in New York city, S.H.I.E.L.D. needed to be better prepared to deal with alien and mutant threats.  Using the U.S. Navy SEALS as their model, special teams of elite agents were trained to act as the vanguards during hostile encounters. Their mission is to provide reconnaissance, recover any useful alien technologies, and coordinate initial resistance until a larger S.H.I.E.D. force can arrive. 

Team 6 is located on the west coast of the United States.

I wanted to get my kids inserted in their superhero games in preparation for the cross blog game we'll be conducting with Maj Guiscard.  My kids didn't want to create their own superheros, so I decided to make some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents instead.   We have a figure for each member of the household, with IDs on the back of the helmets.  The figures are Nova Corps Troopers from Reaper which I would highly recommend. In the movies the agents are shown in black and blue uniforms, but I think they would be a bit dark and not show the details of the figures very well. As such, I've opted for the more classic blue and white look. They ended up looking a bit more clone trooper-ish than I planned, but as my kids like Star Wars, it actually got them more excited about the figures.

I still have additional items to paint, but we should be ready for our game in July.


  1. Outstanding work. They look like they mean business.

  2. SHIELD!!!
    Much cooler that the TV show!
