Christopher Blair Preps for Wing Leader Appearance (June 22, 2021)

Here's a character that many people have been waiting for. Howard Day has put together his take on Christopher Blair for Wing Leader. He might look a little different than you remember, but that's because Howard has creatively de-aged Mark Hamill and combined him with Bluehair elements for a hybrid of the two. For those following the fan game's story/setting, he'll still be attached to the Tiger's Claw at this point in time.








Tonight in random #WingLeader discoveries... if you put dark-blue superman hair on Mark Hamill's face, you.. sorta get the character Col. Blair! Fun, since he played him in Wing Commander 3. :p At this point of the #WingLeader story, Colonel Christopher Blair has taken over the Flight command of the TCS Tiger's Claw. As always, #pixelart is rendered in #3dsmax!

Anybody else thinks he looks just like Chris Roberts? :D

I didn't until you brought it up! I think the cheeks look a bit chubbier than either Hamil or Blue Hair, which lends to the CR comparison.


Besides that, I like all the pictures where he has a hat or helmet on, while the bare-headed picture... not so sure. With the original Blue Hair, I always felt the hair color as being his natural color. Somewhere between blue and an extremely dark black. With the bare-headed picture, Blair's hair feels like it is died, not natural. It's throwing me off a little bit.

Agreed, like in the final pic(the WC2 talkie head)

Man that render looks awesome! Can't wait to see it.

Just a canon note - Blair was actually still a Lieutenant Colonel at this time - the Box Art from WC2 which shows his trial (never shown in-game) has him wearing silver oak leafs:
