An artist has to create. An artist has to explore. An artist has to have fun. This is why I continued to play with recolor possibilities for the Enemy Assault Quad. There was never a Night Force version of the Ferret – at least not back in the day – but I found that giving a Ferret the Night Force color scheme would be quick & easy, and have great effect.
More than just swapping out dark blue for black, I actually changed the chassis color from black to dark grey as well, to offset the black parts, though I made sure to keep the red parts red as a nod to Night Force. Due to the Night Force connection, I’ve always considered this a Joe vehicle, and therefore like to refer to it as a Night Paw. But officially, it’s the Nocturnal Unit Quad.
As it turns out, coincidentally, the 2013 JoeCon would feature a Night Force theme, and a Night Force Ferret was sold at the show, although theirs is a more modern, retooled version (i.e. Tiger Claw). Good timing on my part, I guess. A Tiger Claw in the future is also not out of the question, by the way.
